    How many of you knew there was a difference between "fiance" and "fiancee?"

    Yes.
    Fiancee is closer to the true eventual meaning...
    Financee.

    Wow - this must be a contender for most useless poll ever - so what if everybody ticks 'Yes" - what does that tell you - absolutely nothing!! :meh:

    You don't like polls, do you Bruce?



    Well, I didn't know, so I voted 'yes'.

    Nice job, Zulu! I had no idea that was the case. This morning, when my fiancee told me there was a difference, I laughed at her and told her she was whack!

    Wow! What are the odds that the most useless response ever is in the same thread as the most useless poll ever?

    No - you're wrong - I have posted several polls myself - what I don't like are badly-thought-out polls that are a waste of time and add nothing to the original post! Or polls that will obviously tell you nothing or are nonsensical - etc. etc.

    Unfortunately, we get a lot of ill-considered, waste-of-time polls and very few that are actually worth including!

    The Penguin English Thesaurus I invested €15 in today already starts to pay off :p It tells me that fiancé is the male form, where fiancée is the female. So now I know!

    I also got me a Dictionary of Science and Technology, so this one goes for ol' Brucey: I'm starting a new poll! Now, how many of you knew glomerulonephritis means kidney diseases where the major leason is in the capillary blood-plexuses? :D
