So, on my flight to Denver, the seat-back in front of me had a sign that said "Your seat cushion can act as a flotation device."
This alternate spelling of floatation seemed odd to me. Turns out, it's the preferred spelling, but for some reason it just feels wrong. If I land in the water, I don't want to flo...I don't even want to flotate. I just want to know I'm gonna float.
Now I wonder if we can randomly drop the a from other words. How dark do you like your chicken rosted? How bout that new football coch? Would you use a cleaner with foming action? We've got botlods of coxal cables. Yep, nope. I'm not a fan.
