        European way of doing stuff makes much more sense!
        Like the metric system vs the imperial system.

          Oh! I just thought the year was incorrect. I grew up in England but now leave in the US, so it does get confusing sometimes. I still write a lot of words in UK English (like progamme) but spell checker always works wonders. :)
