I have just been suspended from Yahoo answers, oh the shame , I’ll never hold my head up in the RAC Club again.
My girlfriend encouraged me to give some answers on Yahoo answers but it seems I have inadvertently upset the Americans, it appears from their reaction that I have accidentally started World War Three.
My error was to answer a question which asked about protons and neutrons etc to which my answer was; ‘I’m damned if I know the answer as nuclear physics never was my strong subject’.
Whilst this may not have been the answer they were looking for it was, at least from my point of view an honest one but it seems that I have upset Yahoo who have misinterpreted my slightly sarcastic answers; translation from English to American is always fraught with disaster.
Take for example the message sent by the British in 1939; ‘Help, the Second World War has started’. It took until December 1941 for this message to get through and even then needed a gentle reminder from the Japanese when they bombed Pearl Harbour.
I am now, as you may know a ruddy faced countrman blissfully happy in my rural idyll not wishing to upset anyone.
I hope this little misunderstanding with Yahoo will be corrected as soon as possible and I can get back to sharing my knowledge with people from all over the world; I was just beginning to enjoy it!
