I was being humourous. I believe you are Canadian, possibly American? We have this thing in Britain called humour, it's similar to your humor.

 

Two grammatical jokes in two consecutive posts, what is happening to me...

I'm Canadian, I get humour, and I just don't wan't to care about that now, because on Monday, I will have My English teacher correcting me, so I like to  be ungrammatically correct when I can. Sound Great?

You shouldn't have capital letters in the middle of sentences, excluding proper nouns.
 

Thank you for FINALLY calling that out. 

(PS-- Does ALL CAPS! count as capital letters in the middle of a sentence? Or does it count as emphasis?)

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

"I notice the world is turning" and "I notice the turning of the world" mean the same thing, though you are absolutely right that it's and its do not mean the same thing. It's just, in this particular example, there is no practical difference.

ALL CAPS is just bold/italics/underline for lazy people, you wouldn't do it in an academic paper but it isn't nearly as annoying online as Random Capital letters In strange places.

I get it, and, it's fine. I only do by accident, and then I am too lazy to change it.

I don't know if it's an urban legend or not, but I hear that we Yanks stopped using -our and changed the s to a z in -ise, pretty much just to piss the Empire off. That has got to be the fussiest form of "revenge," if true!

Isn't there a way to set your default language or dictionary to British English?

I think it's urban legend, or maybe partly true. I believe the cause of the two seperate spellings (also using s instead of c, like in defence/defense) is that they were both acceptable at the time, and it simply became standard in America to spell words wro- I mean, differently.

Har har! I had a boyfriend from Wales once and in reference to him and more like a joke, I'd spell things when I had to write them out like "colo(u)r" and "reali-z/s-e"

I hang out with a bunch of linguistic anthropologists at work, so now I'm wondering if British people say colour so it rhymes with pour and if "realise" ends in a softer way than "realize" does. For the life of me, I can't remember, so my guess is probably not -- the pronunciation is the same.

"Colour" and "pour" don't rhyme in my accent, I don't know about the rest of Britain though. I don't think there's a difference in pronounciation between "realise" and "realize", though I have the opposite problem to you, I don't know how "realize" is pronounced! I think I can vaguely recall Bush or Obama pronouncing "realize", and aside from the quirks that exist in their accents anyway, I don't think there's a pronounciation difference.

 

On topic: Is Helter Skelter about heroin or a similar drug? I never thought this about the White Album version, but the Anthology version has altered lyrics: "when I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the ride, and I know when I get there I'll never get higher" with Paul's voice getting higher and quite smooth (not as in legato, but smooth in another way...), but anxious sounding. Then he goes a bit falsetto on "then I get to the bottom", and on "AND I SEE YOU AGAIN" he sounds like he's in agony and about to burst into tears, like he's just come down from a different sort of high.

1. I think it's probably an urban legend, but I'm too lazy to Snopes it. 

2. Is there something wrong with me if my first thought when I read "Empire" was of "Star Wars?"
