@contrex,
I'm not a dick so much as wanting to understand the use of common words that means different things in the UK and the US. Is that so bad?

I'm not 'desperate,' even though you might think so, but that's your problem not mine.

Why is it that the University of Oxford claims to have 38 colleges? A very simple question that you have failed to answer. Whose the dick here?

Also, the fact that I used Yahoo Answers as a source, all you did was criticize its use rather than correcting the information provided. Attacking the source without provide the correct answer makes you a loser!

BTW, you're as gentle as an arse hole!

1.3 (British) A private secondary school

1.4 (US) A university offering a limited curriculum or teaching only to a bachelor’s degree
