Once again, Americans go feral, parsleying the language:

They refuse to tow the line and put apostrophe's all over the place to. The "living language" excuse wears thin. But I agree that the language needs metrication to make it rational. As a lingua franca it makes about as much sense as bitcoin, but the network effect is so powerful that everyone is forced to learn english with all its torturous tormenting.
