    When going to something immediately, the British do it "Straight away". While Americans do it "Right away". Which way is better? Going straight or going right?

    Kinda leaves out gay liberals...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Is this correct English? In Brittan, to call a girl you "ring them up". So it goes to reason for a Yank is when visiting a girl without a door bell you "knock them up".

    One of the American conversions I don't understand is using oxidation instead of oxidisation. I was expecting it to be changed to oxidization but instead you just threw away the is part.

    I think it should be oxidisation (or oxidization if you must) as it is the process of oxidising. Oxidation would only be right if it had oxidated.
