A dangling preposition is the sort of error up with which we will not put.

Use of the past tense in place of the subjunctive mood drives me up a wall. If I was to say it like this, it would be wrong.

We've got an old joke here in C-ville...to really get it, you have to understand that the stereotypical Virginia Tech guy (that's me, uh heuh heuh heuh) is a stupid hillbilly, and the stereotypical UVa guy is a preppy prick who wears bowties to football games. So a guy from Tech is visiting C-ville and is walking down Rugby road. He's lost, so he asks a Virginia student, "Hey, where's the Rotunda at?". The Virginia guy turns up his nose and says, "ugh, you must never end a sentence with a proposition!" So the Tech guy replies, "Alright, where's the Rotunda at, asshole.

There's little disagreement here: the brits can keep their "favourite colour"

Yeah, Firefox rocks-right click saves me from having to manually correct my poor typing. I spell just fine but I type nasty.

When I am not spelling correctly, I am trying NOT to. Sorta more like we was sitting down together and being a bit silly drunk.

LOL Orfy that's good but you forgot one: You Brits tend to use "an" instead of "a" in front of an h-word.

Example:

Brits: An historic day
Americans: A historic day


BTW Yuri that reminds me, here's another one for you: it's historic, not historical

Not sure if IE does this because I never use it, but I know Firefox v2 does.
Apparently that's an add on, Evan!. My browser wasn't doing it so I searched and found the dictionaries. It was a small download and now I'm all set up. Thanks for that.

Actually, the Random House dictionary cites both as correct, though I tend to agree that "historic" is the better option in most cases.

It is not oxegyn either.

This may be on the geeky side of things, but it really bugs me. When using binomial nomenclature of a genus & species, the genus is capitalized, the species is not.

i.e. Saccharomyces cerevisiae or S. cerevisiae, not Saccharomyces Cerevisiae or saccharomyces cerevisiae
