    Sorry, we must have differing views on what the definition of defy is.

    Yes. In the King's English as well.

    Here's one for ya.....count how many times "nuclear" is mis-prounced in the course of a day. You'll be astounded.

    Clearly I should have used a milder way of expressing it, as you seem to have taken it as a personal challenge. Reminds me of several friends around whom I must be careful what I say in email, as their response will be several links to snopes or urban myths. ;-)

    I say 'behind' out of context all the time. Once, a guy replied 'oui chef!'.

    Nice moment.

    I guess Graham fills the role in this show as the kinda slow, wide/heavy and jolly guy... just sad.

    All the time. I worked at a crowded line once that made "behind you" a little tiresome. It was like standing with our legs interlaced, this line. So we got used to just bumping each other, just kind of walk up and get in their space and people move to accommodate. I still do it to my wife in the kitchen sometimes, and she doesn't move, it's very confounding to me. I do this to strangers, and it's confounding to them.
