So do the UK teams.

I just did a spell check and both passed. Why is it that Americans always botch up the English language? Take U out of colour and what is left? I guess that we will just have to live with it, EH!!!

Re: DEFENSE! *clap* *clap* DEFENSE! *clap* *clap* DEFENSE!

i will blame this on the fact that i lived in Rochester which is close to Canada and i still have a lot of their change floating around. Basically if i can use their money in our vending machines i can spell defense their way also....Wait i just spelled it wrong...grrrrr.


was that a good defence?

Good: We got rid of kings, just so we don't have to put up with weird spelling, warm soft drinks, organ meat, and driving on the left.

Bad: In return for giving up royalty, in exchange all we got was fast food, harsh vowels, and the Kennedy family.

Dude, you are an independent country now! Give up those excess vowels and join the US in freedom and liberty!! You already drive on the right and run household appliances on 120VAC: it shouldn't be too big a leap to abandon the whole Queen's English thing.

You're right. When I did my initial check, I was using ieSpell (with the U.S. English dictionary. -- When I switched to the Canadian or U.K. dictionaries, it told me MY way was wrong. ) I didn't notice that when I used the CD spell checker, it didn't catch the "misspellings". (Actually, I guess it wouldn't, since all of them were inside [quotes].)

Ken
For the same reason a shipment goes by land and cargo goes by sea!

Also for the reason that the only countries that drive on the left (to the best of my recollection) are islands. UK, Japan, Australia, New Zealand...
