comment “Woman is the 'n-word' of the world”?
@Bob Murphy: It really makes me wish I could create another "bad word" that starts with N, just so everyone is like, "wait, did you mean that one, or..?"

comment How bad is the f-word, really?
@bobobobo: I agree with JSBangs. There are a lot of people around the world that could really care less about the word "nigger". I think it's important to make them aware of how bad it can be here in the States. Also, Comedy Central stopped censoring "nigger" and "nigga" for Chappelle Show (and it wasn't even after hours at the time) a few years back, but they kept censoring "fuck". If vonjd wasn't from the states, and then came here and went by that theory, he'd probably end up beaten in an alley in no time at all. I'd rather see them informed than dead b/c I didn't want to say "the n-word".

comment “in the year 1908” or “in the year of 1908”
PLL is right as well. I was going to use "Land of the Lost" as an example but I ended up confusing myself. :(

comment How should I greet a close friend from the United States?
@Stephen I had a similar comment but for whatever reason it never posted. Too true here. Though, @psmears, if you have one of those accents that melt the hearts of girls here in the states when you struggle with a word every now and then (or it just screams refined, like a "proper" british accent does over here), maybe an over-formal gushy ending would be effective (Yours truly or something like that) to show that stereotypical "i'm refined because i'm not from the usa" type edge. seriously.

comment “in the year 1908” or “in the year of 1908”
I recommend "in the year 1908" then. It's hard to argue in any case that the year belonged to or derived from "1908", which would warrant the use of the word "of". AKA "Freud is a visitor at James's Sussex residence, Lamb House, in the land of ZOMBIES" would properly imply that the land was owned by or populated by zombies.

comment What does “I know, right?” mean?
+1: As soon as I read the question I thought of "eh?"

comment “Woman is the 'n-word' of the world”?
@Bob Murphy: I'd put it even worse than that. At least with the jokes you have some intent of jest, as ill-humored and inappropriate as it may be. I always considered saying the word "nigger" to be harmless if it's in reference to something that happened with the word. When people such as journalists say "n-word", it just makes me feel like they're too scared to say it, so they leave it up to our brains to say it in our head. How else would we know what "n-word" meant if we weren't mentally saying "nigger" when we heard it? Bill Burr has a comedy skit on that somewhere, I recommend it.

comment “Place” or “Site”?
I agree with Cerberus. To supplement, maybe if you have a specific type of photography in mind, different synonyms of the word "site" would be even more effective for the reader: thesaurus.com/browse/site
