    Australia and New Zealand your member base, sub-forum space, any interesting geo or man made features, and Tazmania are all now incorporated into, and under the rule of, the Pacific NorthWest Sub-forum.
    Look at the bright side, you could have been claimed by Texas.

    My missus is a medical transcriptionist, working from NZ for a US company, so she has to listen to doctors with southern accents and type up medical notes in 'merican spelling. It fair does her head in at times. Mostly the appalling grammar. For example, "the condition has improved some".

    Besides, isn't Tazmania in Delaware?

    What does my head in is their inability to use decimals, everything has to be expressed as a fraction and even then ...... WTF is this "three-fourths" thing instead of "three-quarters"?

    Contrary to popular belief, the plural of 'anecdote' is not 'fact'.

    Why would you?

    Nah, if were American I'd be endorsing the old Imperial measurements, because nobody else in the world would - even the English are now using the metric system for fak's sake!!! Good old Napoleon had the stupid idea of measuring everything in a standardised way, but who cares what a litre of water weighs at sea level?!??!?

    Clearly NOT the Americans... I'm just glad it hasn't effected the ability of the American Government to kill a lot of innocent people.

    ~whew!~
