You got my gripe. "ridiculosity" that's a cracker.

I find it hard to believe that an American actually believes that all these metres grow longer and longer until they reach 999 and then go into incubation sprout wings and legs and come out as a thousand beautiful mitters.

What is a mitter? I have heard it spoken about in several English news, science and general TV and radio broadcasts. It is always used along with the prefix kilo, but doesn't seem to be used alone or in any other context.

Ok thanks, hopefully it will pop up soon because I really like it.

I don't find any of the adverts abusive or obtrusive, maybe that's just because I don't look at them.

I notice that the background music for idiom of the day now changes daily. I had got used to the guitar solo that was originally used and quite miss it. Where can I find the tune to save to my pc?

I've got the message on edge, firefox and chrome on windows 10 and explorer and chrome on windows 7. Can I have badge please?

It would seem this problem started a while ago for some users, but seems to be affecting most users now.


Thank you very much for sorting the problem out, I would still like a badge though.

How is it possible to achieve a brain level score of 200%?

When a percentage has a maximum of 100?

Not being from Australia and with my limited knowledge of grammar, I would just say gudday cobber, until I got a punch on the nose.
