    "Can have" was never questioned. "Would have" is a different story. Entirely.

    since you don't drink coffee bad manners, how do you know what is or isn't good coffee?

    I said almost. Because it is hard to have good coffee routinely. Machine-made coffee is not good for my taste, and making it manually takes a lot of skill, skill that I do not possess (because of this circular problem). So drinking coffee means, for me, an expedition to one of the few coffee shops that make good coffee. I do not think it is different for most of the Americans. But since they drink "coffee" by the gallon, many times a day, that should indicate something about its quality.

    The situation in Greece and Turkey is different because good coffee is made just about everywhere.

    Who told you Americans drink coffee "by the gallon, many times a day?"

    Inferior? Now, that's the term only and idiot would use. No, no, no. It would be absurd to claim that. But what can I say, we just happen to love their funny little ways, don't we, Friendy? It must be a lot of fun for some - sitting on their roost in cowboy clobber drinking demigalons of coffee by the tasse and educating the dirty peasants in rural Russia about labour saving devices invented by blue-eyed and fair-haired once vikings but now just yokels in the land of stinking herring and polar bears.

    For all of you who want to look and act like REAL Americans (or should I say VM's fantasy of all Americans) go to www.cowboy.com
    And to drink coffee just like an American go to www.arbucklecoffeetraders.com But you need to put on a ten gallon hat and call all your friends "Buckeroo" every time you drink a cup of cowboy joe.

    My fantasy of all Americans? I don't have fantasies about Americans. I don't have fantasies about individual Americans to say nothing about the whole population of the US. It is you who has fantasies. You think that the whole world has fantasies about you and your fellow countrymen. Well, we don't. Besides, I don't want to look or act like "real" Americans. I don't even want to act or look like "unreal" Americans. I look like a million $$$, I act like the most prolific casanova that's ever lived, what else would a chap want? JB, please make your point or they might think you cannot think straight when I'm around.

    VM, you are such an old sleeze. You spend so much time trying to convince us that you really are a "hot stud" with the under 25 crowd. But you are completely out of it when it comes to fashion and trends that everyone younger than middle age is into. Before you make your next clueless post, get out of your apartment and take a walk in the city center. American style is everywhere in St Petersburg and in Moscow.

    That's because you obviously have a bad case of Alzheimers and need to be reminded of this simple truth every now and then.

    But you are completely out of it when it comes to fashion and trends that everyone younger than middle age is into.
    Wrong. I'm very much into it. Thing is, we have different perceptions of fashion. To you fashion is being on the same wavelength with the sheeple, to me it's about demonstrating my individuality.

    Oh really? How can you be so sure it's not the other way round - St Pete and Moscow style has finally reached your shores?

    Last time I checked, I could not see three hundred kilogram piles of stale fat in wheelchairs chewing a double cheeseburger (eleventh for the day, flushed with 0% fat cholesterol free organically grown coke) anywhere in Moscow or Saint Petersburg. That’s probably why I cannot see XXXX…L T-shirts and pants that would make a bark envy. And what is left of the American style with these two quintessential pieces removed? Baseball caps?

    Well now we know that bad manners doesn't live anywhere near Moscow, or maybe doesn't go anywhere near teenagers. Baseball caps and McDonalds are on every corner. OH WAIT! I'm American and don't know ANYTHING about Russia!

    What's so American about the lads in the picture?

    I take it you do go near the kind of teenagers I pictured in my previous post. I am glad I am not near you.

    Well, I'm pretty sure that blue jeans, hoodies that say "SBZ," and baseball caps are not, in fact, traditional Russian garb.

    Like I said, baseball caps are all that remains of the "American Style". Blue jeans can hardly be considered "American Style" these days. And if you go nitpicking, I shall mention the city of Nimes and fustian of Genoa branded as "jean".

    And what of SBZ?

    Were jeans originally American? I think of jeans as American style, though many people in different countries wear them too.

    Sure there're not. Russian style is kosovorotka, kirzachi, vatnik and ushanker. Kids have always worn jeans, hoodies (which we call kenguru by the way) and baseball caps, even when I was their age. American style my @rse! Yet another proof that you know ...k all about Russia.

    Here's a photo of me from 1990.

    In 1991 American fashion was officially welcomed into the country and we started to dress differently.

    And are they traditional American garb? Did Fenimore Cooper characters sport baseball caps? I'm pretty sure they didn't.

    In 1873 Levi Strauss invented blue jeans in California.

    Levi Strauss, right... Has it ever occurred to you that 'levi strauss' is the Russian for 'left ostrich'? Next time you decide to tell a fib, plan it out better.

    P.S. So, how does it feel, having to go for the second time this week? Yippeeee!
