Using S over Z isn't being lazy, it's how English originally was. Americans decided to change it for some reason.

I'm thinking maybe I should change it again soon, just because everyone else seems to (well maybe just Nek)...

Yeah, I tend to spell things out how original UK English does, because, in my mind, Noah Webster was just pissed at England when he took things out that didn't seem to fit in his mind, like u in most words ending in a "or" sound: Colour, flavour, savour, etc .... and since words like "centre" wasn't spelled like he'd spell it "center", lol....

I get asked if I'm from the UK alot though, lol.. I just say, "I'm just rebeling the American's rebelion of England.." .... Just in less confusing words....

 :lol: Props for open office, it has a UK spell checker, my old MS Word hated the way I spelled this stuff.... XD

Based on scandinavian mythology, there's a lightning-wielding god called Thor. It also has some influence of a really nifty shape called a torus.

Skyler was my alias in a club called the ACNOTS.

The club was called the ACNOTS because we thought it sounded cool.
