      What's wrong with Emma? I guess she's lost all her female hormones in menopause because she acts desperate to be relevant, like an aging wrestler or ?

              Yes, however not so nice when you say 'thick as a brick' but almost as nice as 'built like a brick $hithouse'.

                            Bins can also be a more general term glasses.

                            Tight can mean - mean with money, drunk, uptight/stressed out...

                                  I'm British/English, and right off the bat I have never called and never heard someone call Binoculars 'bins'
                                  Edit: I finished the video. Virtually none of these I recognized (I knew 'tight' and nothing else, definitely not heard of 'brick' in that context)

                                                Ema Thompson should do this interview alone. Mindy was kind of annoying here. No hate tho

                                                          mindy just sounds very judgy with every word she hears. For a woman of a minority group who doesnt like to be judged or minoritise, she is just doing what she doesnt like people to do to her.

Although these words would be understood in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, 'beastly', 'jolly' 'poppycock' and one or two others would never be used amongst the general population of the Celtic nations. Actually, unless done humorously, using these words even for the regular English person would be unusual. It would certainly clash in a confusing way with most regional accents.
