Creating of this topic is really good idea!!! Sputnik, u give an opportunity to communicate for those who wanna practice in the language!!!Respect!!!
Then I wanna ask...What time does it take to cross the country from one seaside to another? Start in California and final point is NY. I mean by car. If everything is fine, probably, next year I'll have a chance to visit the US for two weeks. So I wanna fulfil my funny dream - travelling through all the country on the wheels. Is anyone able to answer my question?
All right... You got lucky, I am the traveler))) I have crossed the country from Minesota (It is on the North) to Miami... And also I have been in each and every state on the Eastern and Central part... And fll the South... What is remain is western part... I will work on that...
Shortly to answer you question - there are 2780.89 miles (4449.424 km) between Los Angeles and New York... The "clean" time of driving is 41 hours and 27 minutes... My suggestion is you should add to every 6-7 hours (it depends on you and on the kind of your car) 20-30 minutes - that's for stops for gas and rest areas, then add at least twice 9 hours multipiled by 2 - you are gonna sleep, right? And you will get an approximate idea how long it takes to drive form NY to LA...
PS When you are here let me know if you need any help
|| Thanks, Sputnik. When I get the US I'll connect u. What concerns driving from one coast to another I'm not going to do it as fast as possible. I don't wanna get a new record of speed or smth like that. I want to travel visiting cities, towns and interesting places.
I hope I'll get there...
By the way...For how long u r there and what is the reason of ur moving to the US?
|| I am here for 5 years... First I moved here just to get the education - PhD in physics, then I found a job as a scientist and stayed... I haved lived in three states such as Iowa, Louisiana nad Minesota... I love this country))) it is indeed a very convinient and comfortable place to live.
|| I see...That's good u enjoy being there. One of my friends moved there by FSA program. U know, Freedom Support Act...He had to live there for a year but practically stayed there for 3 months. He felt himself uncomfortable everywhere.First he lived in LA, then Arroyo Grande(it's near LA), then in Oregon near Salem. Now he can't explain what was that thing that made him to come back. Smth disturbed him, made his living there uncomfortable. And that is...
And what's ur city of living?

A plane leaves Los Angeles airport under the control of a Jewish captain.
His co-pilot is Chinese.
It's the first time they've flown together and an awkward silence between the two seems to indicate a mutual dislike.
Once they reach cruising altitude, the Jewish captain activates the auto-pilot, leans back in his seat, and mutters, "I don't like Chinese."
"No rike Chinese?" asks the co-pilot, "why not?"
"You people bombed Pearl Harbor, that's why!"
"No, no," the co-pilot protests, "Chinese not bomb Peahl Hahbah!
That Japanese, not Chinese."
"Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese... doesn't matter, you're all alike!"
There's a few minutes of silence.
"No rike Jews!" the co-pilot suddenly announces.
"Why not?" asks the captain.
"Jews sink Titanic.
"Jews didn't sink the Titanic!" exclaims the captain, "It was an iceberg!"
"Iceberg, Goldberg, Greenberg, Rosenberg ...... no mattah...alla same

|| Why a polish guy wants to divorce from a canadian girl
A Polish man married a Canadian girl after he had been in Canada a
year or so and, although his English was far from perfect, they got
on very well.
Until one day he rushed into a lawyer's office and asked him if he
could arrange a divorce for him-"very quick". The lawyer said that
the speed of getting a divorce would depend on the circumstances
and asked him the following questions:
LAWYER: Have you any grounds ?
POLE: JA, JA, an acre and half and a nice little home with
LAWYER "No," I mean what is the foundation of this case?"
Pole: "It is made of concrete, brick and mortar," he responded.
LAWYER: "Does either of you have a real grudge?"
POLE: "No," he replied, "We have a two-car carport and have never
really needed one."
LAWYER "I mean, What are your relations like?"
POLE: "All my relations are in Poland."
LAWYER: "is there any infidelity in your marriage?"
POLE: "Yes, we have hi fidelity stereo set & DVD player with 6.1
sound. We don't necessarily like the music, but the answer to your
questions is yes."
LAWYER: No, I mean Does your wife beat you up?
POLE: NO, I'm always up before her.
LAWYER: Is your wife a nagger?
POLE: NO, she white.
LAWYER: WHY do you want this divorce?
POLE: SHE going to kill me.
LAWYER: What makes you think that?
POLE: I got proof.
LAWYER: What kind of proof?
POLE: She going to poison me. She buy a bottle at the drug store
and put on shelf in bathroom. I can read - it says, "Polish

I'm not an expert in English language but I think that the name of this topic has incorrect meaning.
"United States in English
jokes, storys, anything but in Emglish"
means that one can use any language exept English and I think you meant opposite.

|| Speeding Ticket
A driver is pulled over by a policeman. The police man approaches the driver's door.
"Is there a problem Officer?"
The policeman says, "Sir, you were speeding. Can I see your licence please?"
The driver responds, "I'd give it to you but I don't have one."
"You don't have one?"
The man responds, "I lost it four times for drink driving."
The policeman is shocked. "I see. Can I see your vehicle registration papers please?"
"I'm sorry, I can't do that."
The policeman says, "Why not?"
"I stole this car."
The officer says, "Stole it?"
The man says, "Yes, and I killed the owner."
At this point the officer is getting irate. "You what!?"
"She's in the boot if you want to see."
The Officer looks at the man and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes, five police cars show up, surrounding the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.
The senior officer says "Sir, could you step out of your vehicle please!"
The man steps out of his vehicle. "Is there a problem sir?"
"One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner."
"Murdered the owner?"
The officer responds, "Yes, could you please open the boot of your car please?"
The man opens the boot, revealing nothing but an empty boot.
The officer says, "Is this your car sir?"
The man says "Yes," and hands over the registration papers.
The officer, understandably, is quite stunned. "One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving licence."
The man digs in his pocket revealing a wallet and hands it to the officer. The officer opens the wallet and examines the licence. He looks quite puzzled. "Thank you sir, one of my officers told me you didn't have a licence, stole this car, and murdered the owner."
The man replies, "I bet you the lying bastard told you I was speeding, too!"
