It all the fault of the French - of course.

The USA was first infested with Brits from a time when the English language used "ize" and "or" endings to many words.

Then came the pernicious french influence on the English language causing "ize" endings to become the more french-like "ise" and the extra "u" to appear to make "or" into "our" endings.

The USians were not affected by this foul corruption and so maintained the original English spellings.

In some ways, American English is more Old English than the modern British English.

It's still wrong though. Poke tongue | ;-P
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
