Re: Annoying words, and Words You Hate

For the record, 'different to' always sounds wrong to me and bothers me slightly; 'different than' sounds acceptable but gives me the slightest feeling of unease if I think about it; 'different from' is my standard usage. I think that's a country thing. "From" is considered the "most...

Did anyone else get a bit of a Stargate SG-1 feel from this episode? Uh, I'm assuming this site is still crawling with Stargate fans, right?
