How to spot foreigners

Over at Oxblog Patrick Belton notes:

AFTER A HALF-DECADE as a proud resident of Great Britain, I can note that I've finally learned how to tell, within a second of looking at someone, whether they're a foreigner.

They're the ones who smile back.

This is, unfortunately, generally true. Why it is I don't know - maybe it's because we spend so much time complaining about the weather.
