Somebody explain the fucking difference to me please.

And for a brain - grey matter, or gray matter?

I think the only difference is an "a" and an "e".

HAHA aluminum.
I speak with my friends that immigrated to here from Scotland/Wales/ and Southampton, England on a daily basis.
Aluminium. It's ridiculous.
They can just add an extra 'i' in there huh?
They are the ones that sound weird though so it's all good.

It's hardly a question of us adding an extra "i", it's the spelling used by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, and it used to be used in America in the 19th century.

Anyways, I'd usually spell it "grey", because it's a "greyhound" and not a "grayhound"

The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry is a fascist organization and I won't listen to their damn nazi pronunciations.
