Either I did not see your post through all the rubbage (nice brity word) or this thing was being screwy... I think that is the one I had to memorise before. Since I only care about the last three I generally forget the order of the others .

Yeah, I have a hard time sifting through all the rubbish around here too. I like how you spelled "memorize" in the British English way with an 's' instead of a 'z'.

I have trouble remembering the s vs the z, there are too many exceptions with that one! Did not realise the brits use the s, so technically it is not spelled wrong then !

Yeah, they use 's' instead of 'z' for words like 'memorize, recognize, and realize'.

When you get to high school, you'll learn all kinds of things you have never even thought about before.


Of crouse, I learned mine because I have a few British friends, and the laugh at me and my Texan drawl.

I think Texan drawls (real not the crappy fake ones) and brit accents are cool! I have a total midwesterner accent for obvious reasons .

AAAAGH! Why didn't Pollock mention that sentence two years earlier? The kingdom, phylum, yada, yada, yada, I mean. We learned that stuff in grade 6 and that scentence would've helped alot on the stupid test Mr. Kilbank gave us...

It's funny because I didn't really have a prominent drawl till I started going to school in east Texas. Originally I'm a city kid, but being out in the middle of no where, it's become more obvious.
