I dislike the highjacking of our language.

Sadly the British have become a load of sheep. They have lost all pride and self-respect....but I suppose that's another subject.

2B or not 2B

I just want 2B
I don’t want to come
Or even to go back
I’m happy being stationary
I just want 2B

I know you like to strive
Reach for the moon – you can!
But frankly Josephine my dear
I don’t give a damn
I just want 2B

I just want 2B
Because I know I can
It’s so relaxing being here
I just want 2B

So please don’t bother me
Go on and strive and win
I’ll still be here when you call by
I just want 2B

Reading your "Poem" now whilst listening to Charlie Drake's "My Boomerang Won't Come Back". 2B or Not 2B! :D

I got a surprise a few weeks ago when I talked to my remote control to see if the Dick Van Dyke show's episodes were on and what channel. As soon as I said the name the remote replied that they do not accept that kind of language. I wonder what I would have to call the show that would be acceptable.

With new inventions part of our life, language is bound to change to accomodate them. However, I think AZJim is referring to the meaning of words changing , which can be very confusing. Here in Britain, there are more and more Americanisms creeping into the language, and I often don't know what they mean. It can also cause mis-understandings. 'Knock-up' for instance doesn't have the same meaning here as in America. I'm still not sure what a 'no-brainer' (sounds like someone lacking in intelligence) is...and what is 'second guessing'?
