Posted:It's called a pair of trousers because originally they weren't joined at the waist, it was just a pair of leggings. At least, that's what I've been lead to believe.

Posted:the written english language is sooooooooo out dated!!! the americans have the rite idea (ok i know it's the wrong rite haha) they spell things as its said, like color wher as we spell it colour, theres way too many to list but the english language needs to update its self. "chav" for instance (snigger!!! only the brits will understand this term) =)

Posted:I think its really important to keep a formal language like any other language! Anyway what would you do without such great words as twocker, ned, minging, gipping etc. English is a wonderful language! (plus you have to keep us dyslexics on our toes!)

Live like there is no tomorrow,
dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
