It seems like the only word I write with the extra u is "favourite"

It's color. The "u" serves absolutely no purpose. The only thing it does is make the English language more complicated.

Well, no, but it's just the way I've learned it, not to mention the fact that I'm American. English is a weirdo language anywho.

I learned color, so I choose color. I win a prize now, right?
I faced death. I went in with my arms swinging. But I heard my own breath and had to face that I'm still living. I'm still flesh. I hold on to awful feelings. I'm not dead... My chest still draws breath. I hold it. I'm buoyant. There's no end.

Historically English is a lazy language. English speaking people have been slurring off syllables(sp?) for ages. I still spell it "colour" though.

I wanna get one of those tattooed on each of my wrists. So if I become a rock star (never) I will have my own little gimmick.

Get them out of spite.

That way if you don't get famous you can be like "You don't know what you fuckers are missing!"

Who cares? The real question is: Gray or grey?

EVERYONE knows it's "grey". :nod:

I say "Zed". It's the proper English way. Just like colour and grey. And don't get me started on the American pronounciation of "aluminium". :mad:
