Yeah, I have always wondered why we spell color and across the pond and I think Canada as well spell it colour.

Or why we say Zero and across the pond they seem to say Zed a lot. Very strange, considering it was all the same language at one point in time.

These English speaking folk are a lot of ffyliaid ddiwerth when it comes to their own language I rather use a made up language (Welsh) easier to pronounce :P

Why do you guys hate the letter o so much? You have u by it a lot replace the o with a u in The word mom But one question whys it mum? I mean if mum the o gets replace with a u wouldn't it be muther,mummy,mumma? If you people love letter u so much you could consider removing o and replacing every o word with a u like wurld favurite I think this would make much more sence. By the way I have nothing against the people that do put u's in wurds.
If there's one thing that you should know about me it's in me spoiler.

The English languish ( i got no Idea what "languish" is my spell checker came up with it) started in England then went to America ( I'm not going to give a history lesson) so basically mum was the start and it got changed to mom later in America .

What a way to twist the knife...
And I like how the history are never about your own country's downfall.
E.g in America they go on and on and on about the independence war ( I don't even what it is called!) and I never got heard a word about it in my u.k history lessons. Not that I ever thought that it was a important event and even if I did look into it would be very very one sided.
