    Need to learn a few more useful ASL "conflict resolution" words? It was a trip seeing all these people tell of their fave swear sign. :D

    Interesting, but I thought it was BSL with "wanker" and "piss off" which no one uses in America.

    Bassist, just for clarification, do you know ASL at all? I hope you're not saying that was ASL in the clip.

    Not to the extent to fully communicate, I dropped learning ASL as it was never used, I am only around hearing people, and two, I use a CI. Since the vid was labeled ASL, I assumed it was, but this is for entertainment purposes only. If another form of sign was used, consider it learning such words from another sign format. ;)

    Ok, sure, understood. I watched most of the clip and saw only foreigners, mostly Brits, who of course, sign much differently than our ASL, PSE, etc....

    That was not Asl. I agree with the other poster, it looked a lot like BSL. Guy looked like a hearie to me too.

    Yep, I suspected it was. I don't know Bsl, but I can recognize that when I see it.

    I bet he was a stupid hearie too! All the hearies ever want to know is the bad signs.

    They weren't hearing. They are deaf... and BSL is similar to my AUSLAN language ;)

    bloody hell! I met couple of those people during my trips out in Europe, I have seen the sign "Fuck off" in that sign and I love it when they swear.
