Box 180 @ 43:18 "There is good out THERE." Oops! If an alien made THAT crop circle, they don't speak good english (or else they would have said, "There is good out HERE")... Yes, my grammar was intentionally ironic.

I listen all day at work! I love you all. my boyfriend is caught up and I'm trying to get there!! So when you say "i said box" obviously to me, it's a vag joke. Right!? My boyfriend never knew the euthanism box so to settle our little debate, it's a vag joke right? I'm right, right? Hahaha. I hope this awkward question makes you all smile!

The modern English accent probably developed in the 1800's. The founding fathers and English people would have sounded more American than the stereotypical English accent.
