I would rather say "air-con" than "air-conditioner" my overall bad feelings about Konglish be damned.

Actually yeah. I feel like ďair-conĒ has penetrated into my lizard brain now too, like those slight bows whenever unexpectedly meeting someone I know. It comes so naturally, but itís also bound to bewilder others.

I would rather watch an elementary school speech contest than a basketball/baseball game.

One of the things Korea has taught me about myself is that I absolutely detest watching or playing Korean and American sports, no offense.

I'd rather use English words when speaking English than use Konglish or Korean words that aren't understood by 95% of the English-speaking world. (Renember: kimchi is an English word, "kimbap" is not.)
Rather than have equally-rare incredible sex?

You're just being silly.

Golf and sex are easy. But an incredible experience is a different matter. How often do you call an experience that?


Sex is easy. Golf is not. I'm not sure I understand your last sentence.

She said sports. Thus, cricket doesn't count. Rugby, okay if one feels like watching grass grow is exciting.

I would rather be alone than spend time with 99.9% of the people I have ever met.

Aristocrat is a woman now?  :huh:
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

If I emulate Liechtenstein's likely line of reasoning I arrive at "if (s)he likes Cricket and Rugby, yes"

Personally I find baseball dreadfully boring to watch, except for sometimes the last few innings, same with soccer. Basketball is so-so. American football is by far my favorite sport to watch.

Of course, all this is assuming I'm watching at home. I'd gladly go out to see any sporting event in-person (its a lot more exciting with a crowd and some overpriced ballpark food).

On the subject of rugby
I would rather watch rugby league than rugby union.
