I was about to point out the same thing. Perhaps mods/admins retain the ability to down vote, and one chose to exercise this ability on a generic post-first-read-article-later comment.

Autumn

GENERAL QUESTION:

Why can't the USA call Autumn season by its proper name, as the rest of the world does? Why this childish 'fall' nonsense? "Oh, my dear 3-year-old, the leaves are falling from the trees, so now it is Fall." Please.


On a similar note, why can't the USA metricate, instead of continuing to use outdated Imperial measuring units?

Quote:
Fall and autumn are both accepted and widely used terms for the season that comes between summer and winter. Some who consider British English the only true English regard fall as an American barbarism, but this attitude is not well founded. Fall is in fact an old term for the season, originating in English in the 16th century or earlier. It was originally short for fall of the year or fall of the leaf, but it commonly took the one-word form by the 17th century, long before the development of American English. So while the term is now widely used in the U.S., it is not exclusively American, nor is it American in origin.
Quote:
According to Slate, British lexicographers begrudgingly admit that the United States got the better end of the stick. In "The King's English" (1908), H.W. Fowler wrote, "Fall is better on the merits than autumn, in every way: it is short, Saxon (like the other three season names), picturesque; it reveals its derivation to every one who uses it, not to the scholar only, like autumn."

Because we're stubborn

But as someone who attended university for Chem E., I embraced the metric system. Still haven't fully gotten Fahrenheit to Celsius yet.

Agree 100% with you. Just another of the many reasons the U.S is pathetic.

Ahh good! I have some issues with my 5s running iOS 8 Beta 3. Like sudden crashes, music app restarts, long session of surfing makes it crash and so on.

But I hope Yosemite gets DP4 on Monday, it really needs it! DP2 was much more stable, with DP4 I have font issues, translucency issues, safari is almost broken, Launchpad issues, Notification Center has lags spikes which it did not in DP2.

I have reported all of my issues to Apple of course since I'm a part of the developer program, but I hope they bring in some new stuff as well, new icons, new interfaces, maybe iTunes (?) and I bet with DP4 they are preparing for the public beta.

It wouldn't make sense for a DP5 to come 3 weeks from Monday since thats late summer so I cross my fingers that beta is right around the corner.

I'm fine with "Fall," but I wish we would go to the metric system! Remembering how many of these makes one of those is ridiculous when you could just say .001, .01, .1, 1, 10, 100, 1,000, etc. and apply it across meters, liters, grams, or anything else.

12 inches = 1 foot. 3 feet = 1 yard. 5,280 feet = 1 mile. 😩
