Question: No self respecting soldier or sailor would apologize like that on TV unless they had little choice. I am not criticizing them! I am criticizing the pricks who forced them into it! iran is CRAZY! I'm very relieved for them that they are free. that situation could have gotten VERY bad.

I think that's gonna happen just as soon as they get back to Britain and are de-briefed. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that those people were coerced into saying what they did; I also don't think that those three letters were really written by the female, either. The truth is gonna come out really soon, and of course the little moron in Iran will deny it all and make more hollow threats.

Well, I can respond only to the education part of your question. First off, I'm coming this week from the other side of the world to study in the UK, just because your education is pretty darn good. And, believe me, I've done my research. Basically, if you can get into a top 10 uni in the UK, you'd be better off studying there - your degree will be internationally recognized and you won't have troubles finding employment (and eventually immigrating) to another country. Of course, there are a few great universities in Canada too - McGill is an excellent choice and I've heard very good things about the University of British Columbia. Immigration to Canada, after a Canadian degree, won't be an issue, however the fees for international students are nearly 3 times as much as those which you would normally pay as a student in England. Financial assistance is rarely available. I think they accept A-Levels for admission though. To sum up, my advice to you would be to stay at school, get excellent A-levels, do a British degree at a very reputable university and THEN seek employment and life abroad.

It may be part of the agreement between Britain and Iran that that doesn't happen. No one believes they were Iranian waters. The real question: What did Britain promise to get them back?

in case you've been held captive in a land that likes to shrink peoples heads off, you would confess to insulting the Easter Bunny. They did the right difficulty. the days of brand call rank, serial ## are lengthy gone.

No one on Earth faults those Brits for a coerced "confession". They have lost zero respect from this former Army Captain. I for one, support and empathize with them...glad they are on their way home.

Dallas Originally Answered: Why do the British people say "zed" whenever a "z" is said by itself?
Please excuse my compatriots' chauvinistic answers. We feel linguistically outnumbered and it sometimes makes us tetchy. The Oxford English Dictionary says this: The name given to the letter in England (presumably since the Norman Conquest) has been ZED, q.v., or one of its variants, ZAD, ZARD, IZZARD, EZOD, UZZARD. With the disyllabic forms, which survive dialectally, cf. F. edez, ? for ezed (Coyfurelly, 14th cent.), ├ęzed (Claude de Saint-Lien, 1580), Prov. izedo, Cat. idzeta, app. from pop.L. *idzeta, a. Gr. {zeta}{ghfrown}{tau}{alpha}. The name ZEE, now standard in the United States of America, appears to have had some early currency in England. In 1605 (not long before the time the Pilgrim Fathers were setting forth), Shakespeare wrote: "Thou whoreson Zed, thou vnnecessary letter." (Lear II. ii. 69). But of course, he did not come from the West Country where many of the first settlers came from. In 1755 Samuel Johnson wrote in his dictionary: "zed, more commonly izzard or uzzard, that is, shard." But by 1817 one authority wrote: "Children ... often call this letter Izard... They should be taught to pronounce it Zed". Meanwhile in the States, Longmans' magazine says: "The name ...given to the last letter of the alphabet ... in New England is always zee; in the South it is zed." (1882). The earliest the OED quotes for 'zee' is 1677, and of course, it is the form preferred by the influential Webster. So yes, there's a tradition behind it. The letter was originally only used in foreign loan words, and it seems the name was based on the French pronunciation, but it is not clear when or why British and US pronunciations diverged.
