    Ok. What the hell is a "broiler"

    This has been bothering me for years but I'm too lazy to look it up.

    Argh I keep misclicking on the thread title. At some point I am going to end up inadvertantly pasting whatever is on the clipboard into it. I just hope it is merely nonsensical and not embarassing or obscene.

    It's a grill. Like the top section of our oven.

    Wow, this coffee is really good.

    I hope I'm not resuming my caffeine addiction, but this is the third time I've had coffee in the past week. Normally I have a cup every 2 weeks at the most.

    Herm. :?

    Give in Passer - coffee erryday

    I don't like the idea of being dependent on chemicals outside of those which my own body produces by itself, unless the chemicals are something which I literally need to live (see, medication).

    Broiler.

    They usually get a little hotter than the average oven broiler and the heat only comes from above.

    They can be built into ovens too, of course.

    Apparently you crazy Brits call them grills.

    Most ovens have a broiler built in already. It's usually only professional kitchens which have a separate broiler.

    Caffeine's a good treatment for headaches. This is why Excedrin and other headache medications have caffeine in them.

    In the UK it isn't unusual for domestic ovens to have a large main oven (without a grill) and also a smaller top oven (with grill) so that food can be cooked in an oven and also under a grill at the same time.

    Like this one.

    Joanna and her friends hang out every Friday night. After a few weeks, one of her friends brings her (twin) brother, who was curious as to where she was going; they get along reasonably well, and she figured he'd enjoy it, so she decided he should come. A couple of weeks after that, he asks Joanna out to a movie, which she gladly accepts; his sister, who knew Joanna before he did, is pissed, and Joanna catches a little of their conversation before they drive away. Is it reasonable for Joanna to call Nina and tell her it's okay/to lighten up, or is that not a thing girls do?

    In the US we usually just have two ovens that can do both.

    Oooooooooh. I've seen some versions like that in the States, but they're all old gas-types from the 40's and 50's. I'm not sure they're common anymore.

    nevermind understanding swedes or danes

    we have trouble enough with people from Oslo

    our word for "funny" is their word for "wierd" and our word for "Wet" is their word for "soft" and their word for "wet" is still wet for us but with very heavy sexual undertones that overshadow any other meaning of the word

    plus we have a bunch of wierd words only we have and that no-one understands but us, and then only barely

    And you also apparently have fridges the size of small outbuildings.

    Electrical shops over here use the phrase "American-style" to refer to fucking massive refrigerators.
