    In your country, it's "maths" from my experience over there. In my country, it's "math" unless you want to sound smart (aka "British") you say "maths."

    What.....just because it is common for a Brit to eat a joint for dinner and smoke a *** afterwards?
    (a joint is a cut of meat and a *** is a cig)

    Or because you would probably be arrested if you wore your pants downtown?
    (pants are often considered underwear and pants here are trousers)

    Or that you be thought of quite ***** if you wore your suspenders with your new suit?
    (suspenders are often considered a brasier)

    Or because crisp are chips and chips are french fries?

    Or because you have to a heck of time ordering a peanut and jelly sandwich?
    (jelly is jello. Jam is jelly)

    Or because they have two separate menus....one for with the price for food and second more expensive one in case you want to sit down and eat?

    Or because you have to have a license to watch TV?

    Or because you have to have spare change around to crank up the box in your closet in case your power meter runs out?

    As you can see I lived there for several years.....and I really did love it over there!

    ps....see comments in white

    you can even bum a *** at work and nobody will think any less of you
    to bum is to 'borrow', *** is a cig

    Never seen that in the UK, where was that?
    In Paris you get 3 price ranges: cheapest is standing at the bar, then sitting down inside, then sitting outside on the terrace.. supply and demand working there I guess..

    I've heard of this system too, but think it is just in counsil housing where really poor people live who may otherwise not pay their bill.. or student dorms etc...

    Saying "Maths" could label you as an illiterate... I guess "Math" is
    an abbreviation of "Mathematics" and would still be acceptable.

    My Oxford Concise Dictionary says that "Math" is a North Americation
    word for Mathematics. I would'nt write "Applied Math" when I actually
    mean "Applied Mathematics".

    I'm surprised no one has asked what a CV is yet. :-) It's a resume!

    I saw it a couple times...mostly in a chippy. The first time I saw it was in a chippy in Exmouth, south of Exeter. And then in again in Redruth in Landsend. And again in Aberystwyth in Wales in several places. But mind you this was back in 1990, 16 years ago....and a lot of things could have changed during that time.

    And it stands for Curriculum Vitae.

    Although CVs aren't always considered the same as resumes. A CV is more common for people in academia and will often include a person's entire body of published literature whereas resumes will not.

    Okay, done nitpicking.
