British Sailors used lime to stop scurvy ... therefore we are called limeys.

They would put lime juice in their rum. Lime juice and fish scales. Still pretty tasty, burns the whole way down.

and Krauts

by M_a_r_k In reply to

I once heard the reason Germans are called Krauts. I don't remember the full story. My memory fades in and out as I get on in years. The story has something do with the fact that German soldiers ate tons of sauerkraut during World War I. Anybody else know of a better answer?

You're right about the limeys and krauts explanations, found this by the way http://www.rsdb.org/ the Racial Slur Database.

There are a LOT of offensive terms in this list, if you're offended by things like that then don't read it.
If you do happen to read it and get offended, then please do not blame me.

That was my disclaimer, as I don't want to upset anyone or get banned.

by ITgirli In reply to Why is it

they don't want to be here as much as we do. I have users come in and say such and such broke, does this mean we can go home. It's not the users, it's the day.
