dudeman, stop trying to be clever with your "the only true americans are native, thus every white person is pretty much illegal." statement. while it contains elements of truth, its not necessarily correct. the north america we have today reflects the north america that the europeans created, unwelcome as they may have been. that to me, justifies the country "belonging" (for lack of a better word) to the europeans that came over, even if they did take it forcefully and brutally. if they did not, do you think it would even be called "america?" of course not. then, you would be correct and whites/europeans would be considered illegal.
To be fair it's not really a smart or clever statement at all. A large portion of white americans came here long after the nation was established. So basically a large portion of white people were wanted (by either families, communities, companies, etc.) and didn't come here forcefully or "illegally" in any sense.

To be fair, this all started when I ask the kid his age...

Now has anyone stopped to think, God forbid, that the boy is missing his mother, a sick sister, or something ???? That he just loggs in here to get his head off things, that he truly doesnt know better..?

People are just born with all the posting rules, and yes he should have read them, but lets face it, I have 1000+ posts and I havent yet..

Take it easy with the kid, as you can read, hes pretty young, and has to be new to these things...

@ Mint, he did give you the correct answer.. Usa, is the proper term, as America would be reffering to any country from Canada to Argentina :)

@ Nick, take it effing easy, we where all in his shoes, he is learning about this stuff, be insulting him you dont sound any % more cooler.. Above all relax, mistakes = human..

Wow this is out of hand guys, sort it out.

Id like to point out, not all Migrants are illegal, although a massive proportion are.

Id also like to point out, the Irish and English that went over 300 years ago or whatever date it was were not illegally entering the country against the law, they were invading and colonising.

At the time, there were no rules anywhere stating that invading another country was illegal, it was just an act of war, something that happened alot back then.

The same thing happened when the British colonised Austrialia.

Reguardless, when they were immigrants, there weren't breaching any laws of going into the country.

And maybe i miss understand but whats wrong with calling USA America?

Klc simply saying "America" can refer to all South American countries (Brazil, Chile, etc), and North American countries(USA, Canada, etc). While a lot of people do refer to it as America there are at times problems that arise from it. That is all....

I see your point, but most people that i know in england refer to the USA as just america and then anything else they just call canada or south america or countries in specific.

To be honest, most people in Europe do all speak English lol, but i understand your point, for many its not their first language.

It depends where you are from. My cousins and friends up in Canada refer to the US as "the states."

Anyway back to the topic. I remember juggling and only getting around 30 and than after working on my touch for a few weeks I was able to get up to 100 juggles. Also depends if you are having and off day or not. I've had days when I couldn't even get to 10 and I would get frustrated.

Its all practice. Practice, practice, practice and then the touch becomes second nature.

i see it as an "uneducated"way to call, it. unfortunately lots of people have a tendency to call it america. i find it slightly insulting.

also, when a btit asks me "where are you from" i say South America, and the answer i get then, more often than not, is "aaaaah, so texas, or florida or what.." aaaah the annoyance
