let's have a look at what wilfred's tuition pays for:
here's a fun dialect survey where you can have questions like these statistically explored: what do you call the game wherein the participants see who can throw a knife closest to the other person (or alternately, get a jackknife to stick into the ground or a piece of wood? (for the record the sane 56% of our country answered "i have never heard of this "game" and have no idea what it's called") and what do you call a drive-through liquor store? (here my favorite answer "we have these in my area, but we have no special term for them" got 30% of the answers, closly followed by "brew thru" which garnished a suprisingly minor 3% of answers).
