Because we want to use proper grammar.

Colour is a typo apparently.

:(

On Firefox, there's the automatic spell checker.

and Colour is a typo :(

Thats unfair.

There are other Dictionaries available for Firefox. I'm guess you're using English / United States, in which case, "colour" is misspelled.

It's hard to find a gaming store that will repair a psp backlight and even harder to find one who will do it without ripping you off. You can check online and find a place that does it for a reasonable price and ship it to them, try and find someone in your area who can do it (check Craigslist.com), or if you really want to save some money do it yourself.

My friend got a free psp because the kid had broke the screen so we bought a replacement lcd and backlight from ebay ($80, at the time that was a good price cause they were newer) then I installed it myself in a make shift "clean room". If you do go this route be sure to read up on tutorials (this is the one I used)and do it in the most dust free room of the house cause one spec of dust will show up on the screen and you cant just wipe or blow it off.

If you need any help pm me ;)

Yes indeed. I hope my facetiousness came though in my post. :)

why do people from places other then the U.S. spell color with a "u"
Someone should do research. Someone. :D
*Cough*

Time to play my broken record...

Briefly, the 'u' used by British English in such terms as 'colour' and 'favourite' originates from Old French from when the Normans conquered England in 1066. Old French was integrated into the contemporary Old English to form Middle English. (For brevity, the class struggle was omitted).

The 'u', and other loan words such as the season 'autumn', are French.

i mean americans came from england..... how did it end up being a little diff.
You chose to. In order to standardise the English language, lexicographers and grammarians from America preferred a more Classical theme, therefore they adopted Latinate features. The lexicographers from England, however, were adamant with their French.

The omission of 'u', and other terms as the season 'fall', are Latin in origin. You may have exiled yourselves during a time when French features were used, but you chose to standardise without them.

Ah, that was nice and short. Much more user-friendly than my previous attempts.

Very interesting actually. I think we have a history expert on our hands!

Though the americans say all sorts different. Trousers are pants. Pants are underwear. God knows where trousers come in. And don't even get me started on french fries!

But remember- it's called ENGLISH. Maybe the english are right. :P Nah, I joke, and who am I to talk, I'm Scottish, not English. Scots is an even more stretched version of english... in fact some of it isn't at all, it seems like its own language. Though isn't it bad that barely anybody in Scotland can speak the native tongue, "gaelic"? Everyone speaks English instead.

Please, that's far too overstating of my knowledge. Thank you all the same.

It seems quite complicated, but this isn't really the case. You see, all you need is the basic frame to work off, then any additional dates are optional. In the case of 1066, it's a date that crops up between my English studies and Archaeology studies. Occasionally, I do forget the intricacies of language development, more so with the family titles (I have shocking memory, you see), so I use this 'map' given to us by my English teacher:

I've never found it online since, but I'm not too bothered: it's helped on more than one instance with it being more than adequate and correct. Everything else is from a genuine interest in history as well as a hearty drumming-in for the exams. The rest is easy enough to find on the Internet as and when facts are required to support a claim.

I have a hard time thinking of france as exotic, but I understand wat you're trying to say. I think foreign is a more suitable term. Of course the word foreign is boring, so I'm gonne stick with exotic. [/waste of post space]
