Why? Elaaborate. It is a basic rule we learned in school to help us remember how to spell certain words.

Forget that rule. It doesn't always apply. English spelling is all jacked up.

x2 on that. english is one of the harder languages to learn (so i've heard) because there is no rhyme or reason to it.

X3, I have found so many times that that rule does not apply anymore so I do not trust the rule and look up words in question.

Previous Jeeps: 84 CJ7 (A True Jeep), 2000 XJ (163,000 Miles/Totaled (Pictures of wrecked Jeep in gallery)), 2004 WJ (parting out die to major electrical issues)

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

hey Mr. Magically Delicious (as you seem to be labeled) what are the shapes in the nutrition part of the lucky charms supposed to be? a lowercase gamma or a fish? a plus sign or a multiplication sign? and is there any connection between the shapes?

I am offended by how this thread effects my people. I think it is ignorant to the the drunken Irish race.

I don't know what no gamma fish are *****.

it's the cheerios that i'm talking about. and gamma fish are an undiscovered species made out of wheat and related to the babel fish. everyone knows that.
