In English lessons I was always taught to use British English. American English was reviled by the teachers as a barbaric variant of proper, British English. We would get no points if we would use American words/spelling/etc.
Then you should learn Canadian English. We're a more-or-less delightfully chaotic mix of the two. Generally speaking I prefer British spellings (not always). It irked me the other day when I saw a truck (notice it's not a lorry) that advised others to keep "three meters" back. I wondered how to do that on a street with no parking meters  Tongue.

And rightfully so. I hate how we Americans have so completely destroyed the language.

What are you talking about? American English is closer to the original anyways according to language scholars, and even if it wasn't what is destructive about not having a u in color?

You're kind of lucky. Your royalty seem to be nice. The last king the former U.K. colonies had, before they became the U.S., was George III - pretty loopy, as far as we know. He was so bad, we had to have a war. If we had a king who wasn't crazy, who knows.  laugh

It sometimes gets a little weird that someone can seemingly be so perfect. The most controversial thing that has ever happened during my lifetime was when one of the princes got a divorce.

They don't have the freedom of religion but they do have right to divorce. State Protestantism FTW!

Praying for Fr Olav that our patriarch will accept him and that we can afford to get him. Our parish do really need another priest. 3000+ members and growing is too much for one priest alone.

Indeed. I also think that American literature is far inferior to British literature. Of course, this is a different subject entirely.

In English lessons I was always taught to use British English. American English was reviled by the teachers as a barbaric variant of proper, British English. We would get no points if we would use American words/spelling/etc.
And rightfully so. I hate how we Americans have so completely destroyed the language.

What are you talking about? American English is closer to the original anyways according to language scholars, and even if it wasn't what is destructive about not having a u in color?
I think he is complaining about colloquialisms.
Indeed. I also think that American literature is far inferior to British literature. Of course, this is a different subject entirely.

What colloquialisms?

I found out that a national newspaper was looking for me in school last friday. They wanted to interview me. I already went home, however. I'm not even kidding.

Did it work? Don't get me wrong, it was a nice thing to do. I just don't understand what's with the women and flowers. If I am feelling down it doesn't help if someone buys me a beer.

I pray when I feels down. It works. The Jeusprayer always works.

My wife isn't the least bit interested in flowers. I gave up years ago trying to please her with them after hearing time and time again, "What am I supposed to do with these?" Chocolate works better  Cheesy.

I love being given a single flower (preferably a white rose, kthx) and taken for a walk out. If the walk is not an option, uninterrupted bathroom time works much better.

Not that I'd turn down chocolate under any circumstances, of course...

In college, my Latin teacher asked one of us to conjugate the verb "quaquare." The man got a puzzled look on his face, but he did his best: "Quaquo, quaquas, quaquat..." The teacher started to laugh. The student asked why. The teacher said, "There's no such verb. I just wanted to hear you say, 'quack quack.'"  laugh

My teacher always told us "semper ubi sub ubi".  Luckily, he never checked.
