You spelled a word with a "ise" that should have ... Musika's "mistake" by saying "Oy." The rest was not important.

It's not easy for spell checker to catch mistakes like that. What does 'Oy' mean?

It's from a Yiddish expression of dismay.

No no no. I'm not Rushtown, whoever he or she is. I'm from China. Currently living in the States. I guess my writing is better than my speech. I hardly pass any American once I open my mouth.

Yes, thanks for confirming that. That's "pass as an American," by the way.

Yes, your English was too good in that post. I ... mistake more obviously. The phrase you misspelt was 'vice versa'.

And in so doing placed "vise" cheek-by-jowl with "tights", which I took for a deliberate funny...for added texture, did we not once determine that the clamping tool is spelled "vise" in the US and "vice" elsewhere?...r

Indeed, we did and it is.

On the lists of provisions for the Mayflower itself, the travellers seemed preoccupied with loading enough blankets, oatmeal, pans, ammunition, ... taken over to this Plantation, as Bookes, Nets, Hookes and Lines, Cheese, Bacon, Kine, Goats, &c. Books, goats, difficult choices.

Yes, the goats would eat the books during the voyage, of course. So you'd have to take the goats first, and leave them at the other side while you went back for the books... And then take the goats back to England when you go to fetch the fencing material for the goat pens.

Pantyhose is an American English word - in England we say tights. One pair of tights, two pairs of tights, a shelf full of tights.

Pantyhose and tights aren't the same thing in my world. Pantyhose, a.k.a. nylons, are sheer, come in colors such as ... Tights are thicker often cotton or wool and keep one's legs warm when one is wearing a skirt.

In the US, tights are also made of microfibre (thicker than pantyhose, but thinner than the kind Sara describes), and are worn by dancers, who get runs in them just beforee a show.

I wear a set of "Danskins" http://www.the-yoga-place.com/danskins.html when I scuba dive. My system is highly reactive to fire coral. The slightest contact will result in a rash that turns into a blister-like thing that ends up infected and takes weeks to heal.

They also serve as a light-weight wet suit. The layer of water between the Danskin and the skin is warmed by body heat. Some football players also wear Danskins in very cold weather.

Can I stir the pot and say that to pass an American could be a statement about the fate of missionaries?

Interesting, take a look at alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.pantyhose and see what sort of pictures they are posting. I have not been there for a few months, but the pictures were quite explicit and seemed to confirm 1. above. A look at the local market also confirms it.
