I love seeing linguistic differences in countries that all theoretically speak the same language.

I don't think most Americans would ask the beverage question as was presented, but if anyone asked how many drinks I'd already had today, i'd have to confess to the baileys irish cream in the coffee and the rum in the coke (not really, but in this context, "drinks" is assumed to be alcohol)

here's a link to a site that sells popcorn tins http://www.popcult.com/

Guy next to me at work just got a $15000 rebate because the Tax Office 'forgot' to tell him he'd paid off his HECS a coupla years ago. There is hope.
