Haha we have some cousins living in America, it's all I can do to understand them sometimes

Zucchini = courgette

I can remember that causing confusion...I thought they had a whole new vegetable over there!

Also, from what I can remember 7th grade is not the same as year 7 here but rather year 8. You always add one on to the grade to get the year here, as your 12/13 in year 8, 11/12 in year 7.

This thread has blown my mind

So you AMerican ladies I have a question. KNow if you went to hospital with say a broken arm, can they refuse to treat you if you don't have insurance?

In the US if you go to the ER with a broken arm they HAVE to treat you regardless of insurance or not. It's the law, haha. It's on a sign on every single ER in the country.
:P
