My English friend says it's pronounced "zed" there. Strange.

Why don't all you Brits shut up and worry about something meaningful...like proper oral hygiene.

Wow, I'm actually British (temporarily in the US) and we sound like a bunch of whiny idiots! To the Americans telling us this in the comments here - have at it! Language evolves people - what the hell do you expect in a world that`s internationally connected so much?

From my experience of dealing with the language differences living and working in the US, the only thing that I really find difficult is `I could care less`, simply because it`s the exact opposite of the British version, even though it means the same thing. But so what? I have to learn something different - I think I`ll cope. I have such a head start in the US compared to someone for whom English is their second language, that I really have no room to complain.
