To pull a Fahrnholz: me fail English? That’s unpossible!

I didn’t think the to-do list in TWP was particularly helpful?


#202

Milan, call the :ambulance:

Random trivia, which @RonGilbert can confirm or debunk for once: the image of Elaine there is based on Avril Harrison, who worked as an artist on Monkey Island. (Source: Mobygames)

Luckily my drone has a first aid kit on board!


#205

Oh, I always wanted to know that! She looks a little like Liv Tyler in that pic.


#206

Like this?


#207

What, me misspelled “licence”?


#208

#209

No.

(License = American English, Licence = British English)


#210

That reminds me of the passive way @tasse-tee corrected me the other day when I said gas station.

Milan: Gas Stations are open on sundays.
Katie: Yes, Petrol Stations are open on sundays!

:sweat_smile:

Actually I’ve never seen the word “licence” out there - and I had to read a lot of English licenses in my life… :wink:


#212

I don’t know, I found it useful for keeping focused on the objectives.

I’m English, so wrong in my world :wink: plus isn’t Frenzie Belgian?


#213

Yeah, and if it’s a hopeless case (or there’s a software glitch), the thing can just drop out of the sky and put you out of your misery.

But perhaps I’m just slightly too sceptic about some of those modern technologies :wink:.


#214

Do they have to use British English? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#215

We could call it “old world english”, in that case maybe we all would have to…


#216

Even after the Brexit? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#217

Not yet.

But I speak American English, if that’s the question.


#218

I don´t know about you, but I´d prefer to stand by my friends.:wink:


#219

Of course they don’t have to, I just thought that was more likely.


#220

It´s what we learn at school. But just from the consumption of english speaking media, I would say the american english weighs out the british english by quite a bit. So by this point I may be more accustomed to the american variant to an extend.
