Pancakes = flapjacks.

While we're at it, football != soccer, and there's no u in "color."

In the English language there is a U. Only Americans are lazy enough more efficient to want to drop a letter because it's too much work to insert it.
Fixed. How many hours of your life have been wasted writing that extra 'u'? Face it, Americans just do things better.

I might have given you that one had you guys not invented texting and Twitter which are completely destroying the English language. Most kids are barely functionally literate because of that crap today.

Literacy of College Graduates Is on Decline

Literacy experts and educators say they are stunned by the results of a recent adult literacy assessment, which shows that the reading proficiency of college graduates has declined in the past decade, with no obvious explanation.

"It's appalling -- it's really astounding," said Michael Gorman, president of the American Library Association and a librarian at California State University at Fresno. "Only 31 percent of college graduates can read a complex book and extrapolate from it. That's not saying much for the remainder."
