We are (posting this) in the USA where the spelling for each is the same ... if you have a plethora of parking or gas meters close to your house you're in business. :-)

So there is no flag to determine whether your image is taken within parameters, well I might just temporarily move to the mountains :-)

But for those of us who actually use the metric system, that is, virtually everyone other than Americans, the spelling (of the measurement) is metre.

I hear that in Australia and New Zealand you pronounce barbeque "barbie", which is actually an anorexic doll with not enough meat sufficient for an appetizer.

For example, in Year 1 that useless letter "c" would be dropped to be replased either by "k" or "s", and likewise "x" would no longer be part of the alphabet. The only kase in which "c" would be retained would be the "ch" formation, which will be dealt with later. Year 2 might reform "w" spelling, so that "which" and "one" would take the same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish "y" replasing it with "i" and Iear 4 might fiks the "g
j" anomali wonse and for all.

Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear with Iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and Iears 6-12 or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants.
