Not around these parts missy... it's them there yanks messing with our language again:P ...
What they need to do, is change their 1st language to , say, Spanish (well, it's going to be by default soon anyway:P) - and let them mess around with someone elses language and leave mine alone:P



Oh and another one .... "Being as I'm...." It's BECAUSE or SINCE.... **** how hard can it be?

And stop with "1 time" it's ONCE, and "2 times" is TWICE - come on people learn to speak the Queens English

:D:D Blame Webster - he was the guy who decided to "standardise" (ie: Americanise) English... But I hope you're not including me in "our" - since English is not my mother tongue, and since Canadian English is a weird hybrid between American and British English... Well, I guess that gives me the liberty to bastardise the language quite a lot!!

Couldn't resist!! :ph34r:
