The Dark Knight Rises (Cat Version)

“Dammit… because of this trailer, I made a fool out of myself. I watched this more then the original trailer, so I thought I was the only one to see the reference to Robin. I posted it on a dutch filmsite, and nobody saw that in the original trailer, because it was only [seen] here. Got me fooled there!” — JeroenStultiens

New French Spelling Rules?

Here’s the good news for those who remember struggling through dictation in French class: French spelling has been simplified. Here’s the bad news: Few have noticed, and those who have don’t like it. An official body that includes government ministers and a representative of the Academie Francaise, the eminent French language institution, issued a new set of rules to simplify the spellings of many words, either to bring them in line with pronunciation or to eliminate exceptions. The changes were made in 1990 — but French media are just getting wind of them. For example, ‘aout’ (August) drops the pointy circumflex accent over the ‘u’. ‘Baby-sitter’ gets Frenchified into ‘babysitteur.’ Bonhomie, which has come into English with that spelling, becomes bonhommie — to reflect its root ‘homme’ (man). Both the new and old spellings remain acceptable, but the new ones are supposed to be taught in schools, so they will eventually — in theory — replace the old.” w/ photo
