    Thanks for the link !

    On a side note; your post and the linked article made me wonder why the Brits spell the word as tyre instead of tire like us Americans do. My experience has been that it is the Americans that are the linguistic deviants, However, according to a wikipedia article, in this case it looks like the Brits are the ones that somehow changed the original word and the Americans didn't get the email to change from the original spelling.

    Also interesting is how the word "tire" came to apply to that rubber doughnut on the wheel.
