Actually it says Kms, which is short for Kilometers, so I assumed he meant per hour :)

I assumed KMS = KM/S
KM/S = Kilometres per Second

Oh and its Kilometres not Kilometres. :p

Apparently they are both equally valid in the eyes of the Metric system :D

Language = English
England = Creator of Language
America = User of England's language
English = England's interpretation of the language.

Therefore
KM = Kilometres according to the creators.

Therefore
Spelling of KM = Kilometres :ha:

I'd say the odds are in favor of metre, but because of the fact that it was developed by a French scientist.

Oh, and Language = French, they used went Metric in 1790, not 1972 like we did :p

More like America = Uses molested, and mutated version of English Language.

There's also the fact that English is a bastard tongue, developed from Latin (and other Romance languages) and Germanic languages, with words also taken from Hindi and others.

And it also depends on whether you believe a Language should follow a Dictionary, or the opposite. ;)

Edit : This post is, in fact, an example of language drift by itself, can anyone guess why? ;)

They all originated from some Barbaric language. If we all spoke in Latin though... christ...

Imperial influences were immense in forming modern day proper English actually.

The germans used to be barbarians too though, until after rome.

Speaking of which, I finally conquored Greece as Julii so now I can play as the Greeks.
