Here i actually was able to find what video i am talking about.



I dont know if that is what he says or not but it makes sense.
In the case of BJ, he probably meant motherf@*ker literally.

I can't stay mad at you, HR

As I said, I'm more inclined to believe that GSP is aware of how the term is used, and that he has probably used it himself. It's not as though he's from isolated and remote northern Quebec. Montreal has a huge English presence and is home to thousands of students, so I highly doubt he'd not heard it used before.

It will be a bromance to stand the test of time!


And yes, exactly. Georges can't claim he speaks better english than nick and then hide behind not understanding the true meaning of a phrase that he's had to have heard hundreds, maybe thousands of times even if his entire english experience was limited to our film industry (which it obviously is not as you pointed out).

It's the way that he expresses himself that he has a problem with, the rambling and the pausing and the train of thought...


But his english? I've never known him to struggle with a sentence because he could say the word in the english language.
I think he has a very small vocabulary, which is why he has so much trouble expressing himself.

Here goes an efficient solution to understand Nick and Nate better. Just watch a few episodes of these two guys. The description warning in the begining is priceless:

No, the world is not black and white. That's why it's often a good idea to err on the side of NOT getting upset when its a shade of gray in communication. If I wanted to I could etymologically examine lots of words even right here in this thread and take them in ways their speaker obviously did not intend and get all mad. Many people would think me unreasonable and rightly so. Context is important, but it sounds like she's not considering that (or rather, choosing to avoid viewing it in context at all) which is also what I think GSP is guilty of here.

But really, I guess I could start flipping out on every brit who asks me to bum a ***
His mom is probably just from a different generation. Yes, language changes all the time, but particularly for older people it's not that easy to adapt to the language of younger people especially if they've grown up and lived all their life with specific semantics to specific words which may have changed in the language of younger people. She may be conciously aware of that change, but she probably feels still a different meaning. Something similar might apply to St. Pierre. While being educated as he is, he may conciously know that US-Americans use that word not in the etymological sense, but especially in the heat of an argument he could feel a different meaning. When you learn a foreign language and have an emotional argument in that literally "foreign" language, it really gets much harder to intellectually get the right connoations in the other persons' statements.
