Default Re: What is the cheapest build possible?

The main things that annoys me about how the American English has evolved are

1. Firefox dictionary add on class British English as an individual language, they call American English just "engish". We came up with the language the least you could do is recognise that its the original and should be called appropriately, the clue is in the name ENGlish.

2. You change letters for no obvious reason e.g. recognise is the original, the American version is recognize what is the benefit of that??

Bring us one more The Beatles, two more Political writers for us to mimic, 3 more sexual revolutions, 5 more musical revolutions, and our own "cool" or "charming" accent (our current ones sucks), and we'll consider opening negotiations for ownership of the English Language.

lol the same English language which comes from England. You forgot English charisma and conservativeness . You stole credit for most of the British war missions in WW2 films through hollywood and you have also stolen a countless number of inventions from the UK e.g. the first supersonic flight the English government cut funding and gave the new prototype plane to the US, one week later the americans fly the plane and break the sound barrier and claim there project to of been a success!!!! the only input into the plane design was they changed the serial number and gave it a paint job...........

Hey, Ramptant accusations is no way to begin negotiations and posession is 9/10ths of the law.
