Hilarious Argument Among Eggheads and Math Geeks



While searching for a CAPTCHA for my personal web site, I ran into Prove you're human (do the math):
CAPTCHA Debate

My favorite response:
"Maths" vs "math": just UK vs American English. Get over it!

It does however remind me of a mathematics text book I once had in my youth (in the UK), which its American author had decided to call "Mathskills". Needless to say this caused much hilarity in the classroom...

Math Skills - US = Maths Kills - UK What a hoot!

And I got to thinking, what SHOULD our language be called?
