To give you an example...I live in So. Cal. and within a two hour (or so) drive to Mexico. I was in need of some medication. The medication I needed, I couldn't get here without a prescription. I can get a prescription easy, that's not the problem, but the medication I needed was close to $400.00 for one months worth. (It's not covered under insurance because it is not "needed"... sounds like Viagra...but no.) Considering I needed at least 3 months worth of the medicine, I'd be forking out $1,200.00 for it. I find that with a little research that one company that makes the medicine is better...and the same company that supplies the U.S. market under a different name!! I get the same medicine in Mexico for 1/12 the cost. I get 3 months of it for $100.00 over the counter. Medicine is one example of what I mentioned above. Other countries, while there are drawbacks certainly, are more open to trying new and innovative ideas. Americans have law suits to worry about because we here are all law suit crazy.

First off it is "litigious", it has an "i" in it

I'm gonna have to think about deleting this post... (Edit: oops wrong thread)

Cliffy...if the Brits "made" the language...why do Brits have accents?

One proof of accent is the lack of accent in singing. How many Brits do you know that when they sing, they sound like Brits? It's amazing how an accent leaves when words are sung.

Listen to some Anglican church music and i can asure you our "accent" is there in style. The fact that even at a wedding it sounds like its a funeral is probibly why we try and liven it up abit most of the time.

For some reason alot of church type music in america seems like every one is high, or may be im not used to every one being so happy.

Yeah before anyone says it i know im a post whore.

Old music...old lyrics...old pronunciation.

Let's keep to contemporary music...and the subject would be the accent and not the music.

Elton John has no accent when singing...and he's a Count or whatever you Brits call each other. (Count Chocula? )
