Such nitpickers here! Why don't we also debate the position of the apostrophe in the first panel?
Also, light cancelling itself does not a lightsaber make. I can't even conceive what current (no pun) battery could be held in your hand and supply that power output seen in the movies, let alone the tech which would produce the same effects as a lightsaber. Why not debate hyperspace jumps too!

Actually Roman, in Britain many French, Latin, or Greek words retain their original -re spelling, in America however, the correct form of the word uses the -er spelling. So both are correct depending on where you live, and given that most of the people here are Americans (as you pointed out) the -er spelling would be the most appropriate

Too bad, Roman, too many Americans here. They don't even realise they spell everything wrong. And the date thing - that's slipped over into Canada, but I still will do it right!

"No more people correcting spelling of having an issue with whether its an acronym or an idiotism (or what ever). "
If Americans can't spell (or get the date in the correct order - even American friends think that is crazy) then of course you need to be corrected - the word is SABRE, not saber.

I suspect that the hari-kiri comment was actually posted by an American.....

No more people correcting spelling of having an issue with whether its an acronym or an idiotism (or what ever). I think I speak for many of us here in saying, Rpetras & nelkins "Get a BLOG you two".

90% of the people that read this strip are from the US. If you feel the need to insult us with your elitist "as many Americans think", at least give us some idea of what country you are from so i can start hating it. Thanks.....
