        And no offense to you, but "my bad" is an extremely common phrase...at least in North America. For you not to have heard it, you must be on a different continent plus not have much interaction with younger people!

          Word!

          That's why I think it's helpful if people at least put their country in their profile. It serves as a point of reference, especially for those who choose to use something other than their real name as their forum name. And even real names don't reveal where the poster is or comes from.

          Plus I've been alive long enough to think it's pretty cool that I can sit here, type these words, and have them read by someone in Japan, or Finland, or even Cleveland! :p

            Dude, I've lived in Cleveland. People there don't read.
