Technically Tea and Coffee are infusions.

An infusion can't really be a tea unless it actually contains leaves or extract of the Camellia Sinensis plant.


Ah, so there's more to it... but what about fruit teas and herbal teas, to they all have to have actual tea leaves in them?

Sk-on, not sk-own.

More importantly, I have to wade in on the debate about how you say one. I have literally never heard a single person say anything other than 'w-un' or 'w-on' ('w-on' rhymes with sk-on, not won, which confusingly rhymes with 'w-un' :shifty: ).

How else do people say one? Rhymes with on? Rhymes with own? I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

I am.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

The poll will not close until my favoured choice has "wun" it.

Don't worry Lewis, my choice needs another 21 votes so you have plenty of time to campaign.

You want the option with less votes to win?

Scone rhymes with "con" which is what this vote will be if the bloody cone-heads win it!

Also - what the strawberry float is going on with the "one" pronunciation debate? How exactly are people saying it? Unless you're rhyming it with "gun" then you're doing it wrong surely? How the hell else can you say it? "Wown"? "Wan"?

You say it like gone.

No you don't


Indeed.

Which begs the question - how are people saying gone to make it rhyme with one? "G-own"? "Gan"?

Just watched a bunch of clips from interviews etc. with One Direction on YouTube, every one of the them introduced them as One "rhymes-with-gun" Direction.
