    And Govt - Z is pronounced Zed, not Zee.

    Does anyone else here find it ironic that a post about a man who can't hardly speak english , has become a discussion on the finer points of grammar?

    No way - we'll rearrange the letters when you call trucks and apartments by their correct names....

    btw - Thru's not an accepted proper spelling here, either...

    Let's think about this.

    Saber - pronounced say-ber
    Sabre - pronounced say-ber not sa-bray

    Which makes more sense?

    Sabre does of course.

    Trucks are trucks here in Australia, but apartments are called flats.

    "I saw a Fosters truck from out the window of my flat."

    Surely "can hardly speak English".

    As an individual letter z is pronounced zed but in or at the end of words it works fine in terms of pronounciation.

    If you go by pronounciation of letter combinations you can spell the word 'fish' 'ghoti' although I forget the whole explanation.

    gh as in cough, and ti as in station but I can't recall which word to misuse to get the middle vowel sound.

    Should we give this topic it's own thread as well?
    Lead me not into temptation... I can find it myself.

    Can't (Cannot) is acceptable as well

    I don't think so - I doubt Arnie's gonna generate that much interest on his own (sorry [&])

    Just to you guys, I'm not prepared to have a really serious debate about why the American dialect is better... The minute someone cites a real resource where there sorry ass looked uyp smth to prove me wrong, I will pronounce myself winner and exile the loser to cplusplus.com

    Trucks are trucks, apartments are flats, I only saw thru' in airports so assumed it was to save space on signs, I think it is a valid use of an apostrophe.

    We could put an English/American dictionary up somewhere.
    It's trousers by the way, pants are underwear. Jello is jelly, jelly is jam, chips are crisps, fries are chips, faucets are taps, the sidewalk is the pavement this could just run and run. lets end it now and agree to interpret at run time.

    C'mon - I'm the only one here that liked Kindergarten Cop? I can't believe that...

    "Who is your Daddy and what does he do?"
    "You're not so tough without your car, are ya?"

    These are classic lines! I, for one, was appalled when that wasn't at the top of the AFI Top 100 list. Waterworld and Ishtar were also notably absent.

    There are a couple of local radio guys who took a bunch of clips of Arnie from Kindergarten cop and would call people and play them. Including,
    "Who is your Daddy and what does he do?"

    They would carrie on 5 and 10 minute conversations. Very, very funny.

    Person: "Who is this?"
    Arnie: "I'm a cop! And I am going to ask you some questions"

    That kind of stuff.
    He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep in order to gain what he cannot lose.

    I got a flash program from someone that had a bunch of his lines and would play one whenever you hit a button. A couple of friends of mine walked around for about 3 days just repeating "Who is your daddy, and what does he do?" and "Stop it!" Arnie-style... Priceless...

    I'm saddened that they took down Hitler-Arnold at my gym, tho (they had a poster of his up where he's flexing and it looks like a sieg heil thing....)

    Kindergarten cop was pretty cool:

    "Boys have penises, girls have vaginas..."

    priceless.


    I don't really like arnold movies much, though....they remind me too much of the "Final Fantasy" movie *shudders* which reminds me that I need to start a thread for that on it's own sooner or later.

    C'mon, you europeans need to bow to our powers of bastardization.

    I liked Last Action Hero alot. Terminator 2 was excellent, also.

    But I guess my favorite is T1. A lot of action and suspense without all the coolio dialogue of T2. T2 was great but a little too
    cute.

    Black River (or is it mtn?) is a real action hero.

    Anybody want to learn to speak Australian? Just listen to a
    Fosters commercial.

    No. Wait. Don't hang up!

    This is America calling!
