I'm English, we can't communicate unless it's in sarcasm. It's like our native tongue.

If you don't know when someone's being sarcastic maybe you're the retard.

What is this? Why are so many agreeing with this apparent "advice"? Using sarcasm with a person you've never met can backfire, yes, but if you use it properly, however, and you quickly read what kind of person he or she is before interacting with them, it can make you appear as a confident and humorous person who isn't afraid of being who you are - which often will give a better outcome than just being a careful talker. Anyone with just a bit social skills should be able to comprehend this.

I cant tell you how many times I've lost respect to someone I just met because I can't be serious with them because they're just sarcastic to everyone, even those they barely know. It's funny when we're friends and we're in on it together but just doing it to either look cool or just to do it makes it annoying, not funny.

I have made that mistake many times when I sarcastically invent outlandish conspiracy theories...
