    If you don't know what a badass is, then you are not one! Seriously, these terms can't be that obscure across the pond. Finally, if some on this side heard you refer to your friend as "a mate" they might be confused about your relationship given the fact that "a mate" in the states is the significant other in a couple. How does the old saying go? "Britain and America are two nations divided by a common language."

    Being a child of the 80's, I think the term "badass" will always be a part of my lexicon, and honestly I use it often. I find it to be a particularly apt term for describing vehicles, especially those with a mean, aggressive stance and appearance.


    Speaking of being a child of the 80's, this thread can't help but to make me think of one of my favorite childhood characters. You can guess what all of my friends and I claimed the B.A. stood for

    There's a book just published by Jon Sopel, BBCs North American editor, called "If Only They Didn't Speak English" - the premise being that if Americans didn't speak English, we'd realise just how different our 2 cultures truly are LOL
