I think some of those are just informal phrases.
"Go to hell" is actually just "die". Bad guys say that a lot in anime.
"What did you just say" is also just "what?!"

I remember using a 300 baud modem on a computer that couldn't run Netscape 3. But Netscape 3 was out at the time.

They did. I owned one when I was working for a local newspaper. I could literally type about as fast as that thing transferred my stories to the newspaper's computer.

It is beyond debate that Sesame Street had a positive impact on more than one generation of children in several countries.

Sesame Street was hugely beneficial for me, and I am glad that my niece watches it with my mom while my sister is at work.

Sesame Street got me in trouble with my primary school teacher for pronouncing the letter Z wrong.

:lol:

I'm imagining a kid who has perfect understanding of English grammar and excellent composition, but fails the lowest levels of primary school English for saying "zee" instead of "zed".

And then you somehow get your life on track, and make it a few years in, and you're once again dealt a huge setback for leaving out some "u"s.

You're considered dyslexic for the way you write your dates, and you can't tell what the temperature is outside to save your life.

My schooling in the U.K. was very strict about "proper" usage. My teachers never fully understood that I wasn't American and that I was perfectly aware the spelling and pronunciation they expected because I had already learnt* it. I think they were disappointed that they didn't have to teach me that stuff and lord it over me.


* see what I did there?
