Are you reffering to me being a newb and my registration date? I have been around here since May or April of 2002. But I had some username troubles, and couldn't access my old name.

Americans are lazy. We've almost completely phased out the letter U because a 25 letter alphabet is easier to remember. We're that lazy.


I'm done putting links in my signature because every time I do it just links to some old crap I've long since stopped updating.

That has alittle something to do with cultural differences between the UK and the US, why you nit-pick spelling and not my passive agressive additude is beyond me.

A passive agressive attitude is all down to opinion, spelling is pretty definite. As a moderator, I'm safe (I'm a nit picking spelling jerk... but I'm safe)

American spelling and pronuctuation sometimes makes more sense than ours, for instance, "can't", correct me if I'm wrong, should have an R in it for us Britons. But that is very rare. Usually American spelling sucks.

When has can't ever had an R in it? "Can't" is an abbreiviation of "cannot" or "can" and "not". The abbreiviation works simply by taking the "can" adding a "`" and then the T at the end. R was never in there.

Erm, nope Fealiks? I'm not sure where you picked that up.

And yes Joshi, the Americans do spell it as "check". There's literally hundreds of minor differences between the two languages other than the more commonly known "colour" type ones, so it's best to exert caution when correcting an American's spelling. Vice versa, too.

Noted, I generally tend to know about these things, "check" caught me slightly off guard.

I get the impression that the Americans went through their words and changed the spellings just to make a point.

I mean, they spell most of our "ised" words (realised, specialised, etc) with a Z, which seems like a completely unnecessary change. Then there's the obvious "colour" ones, which while may be more convenient to write, once again introduce unnecessary confusion and incompatibility.

Americans have and will always one goal with everything: Make it easier and cooler.

And the only letter cooler than X is Z, so that explains that.

...because we're awezome.

I didn't say it ever did have an R in it, I said it should, you winkle. "CARn't" is how we pronounce it, although you're right, since it's an abbreviation I am wrong. Even if it had an R in it, that would be tricky for people with rhetoric accents such as Americans to pronounce.

... I'm pretty sure that's how the Americans pronounce it too. Spelling isn't always dictated by pronunciation, otherwise we'd have no end of ridiculously spelt words. For example, a lot of this country pronounces 'bath' as 'barth', while in places such as where I reside (Nottinghamshire) it is completely not pronounced like that at all.

I'm with you. I pronounce "Bath" "Bath" and "Glass" "Glass", although I still pronounce "arse" "arse" (which really isn't a question of pronuctiation as "ass" and "arse" are technically seperate words).

I'd assume (although I wouldn't take my assumption as fact) that after the whole independance thing, they wanted to make themselves more independant by spelling words differently... or something.

But yes Fealiks, if we were to spell words as they were pronounced, we'd have no end of oddly spelt words. Whilst it is true that America pronounces words differently (because they have a different accent), if we were to spell names in that way we'd have to have different spellings for the Scottish, Welsh, Irish, hell, different parts of england would spell it differently because of dialects. After living for 2 years in Newcastle I'm pretty sure yes should be spelt "Aye".

I didn't mean all words should be spelt as they were pronounced, I was being hypothetical to stress the difference in our accents. Otherwise, the people who invent assign characters for the pronuctiation section in the Oxford Dictionary would be put out of business. What I said was similar to saying "Some parts of America should spell "Mirror" as "Meer" ", not being serious, just a different way of getting my point across.

And, Joshi, would you please take that green pixel out of your avatar?!

When taking photos of the sun, does the lens flare usually have a tiny little picture-hijacking spot that's brighter than the very soul of jesus?

His soul is inside him so how is locking him in a closet going to do anything? You want to pin him to a cross. 'Course, he's gonna come back, he's immortal...

Who ever said it was meant to be a picture of the sun? Infact why can't my avatar have that green speck in it?

Plus it tends to be the case that these filters are based on some kind of reality.
