      You are not here just to fill space or to be a background character in someone else's movie. Consider this: nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you. We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.

        i thought their humor is more ironic and more cynical.

            British people often use dry humour like sarcasm etc

            I find it funny
            When Americans tell jokes.....meh. It sounds a little too informal and not well written (think it's the accent)

                Honestly I have a hard time understanding british humor, aside from monty python (and I still don't 'get' some of their skits lol). I guess americans are too corny and I've been around them too long.

                      british sense of humour - more dry, witty, sarcastic ............

                      american - is it more 'vulgar'
                      i'm thinking about joan rivers and Ruby Wax

                      __________________________________________________ _____________________________
                      If you think about your situation, you will find that Allaah (سبحانه وتعالى) has given you things without asking, so have trust in Allaah (سبحانه وتعالى) that He doesn’t prevent anything you want except there is goodness for you.

                      You could be sleeping and the doors of the heavens are being opened with dua’as being made on your behalf, SubhanAllaah: perhaps from someone poor whom you helped, or someone sad whom you brought joy, or someone passing by and you smiled at him, or someone in distress and you removed it.. so don’t ever underestimate any good deeds."

                        British/American humour is a made up concept. There is no such thing as British humour.

                          Yea these Silly American comedians cant get people to laugh without using the 'F' word & 'bitch' atleast once in thier comedy skits. Real Pathetic.

                            Wrong. There is no such thing as German humour.

                              No americans I know like joan rivers. My mom hates her hehehe but she loves jeff foxworthy and gabriel iglesias.

                              I really don't like vulgar comedians, I never have even when I wasn't Muslim. I'm not even talking about swear words, I mean like fart jokes, racial jokes and religious jokes, very distasteful imo (like larry the cable guy and jeff dunham).
