    I once pointed out a "stationary" whoopsie on the Kikki K Facebook page.

    Someone had the nerve to call me a pedant and I was all "Dude! IT'S WHAT THEY SELL."

    I just did this this morning - took about 5 minutes.

    http://www.gameswithwords.org/WhichEnglish/

    It asks you a range of questions then predicts which type of English you use (ie what nationality), and also whether English is your first language. It was pretty cool.
