PSA: the term for "and other similar things", is *et cetera* (latin). That's a hard "T" sound after the initial "E". There's no "K" sound in the term at all. Saying "ekcetera" is wrong.
@lightweight dying - in the states, it is usually butchered as eXcetera ... like eXpresso
@haacksnetworking Yeah, seems to be a trend in all English-speaking countries, where people in charge have decided understanding history and our language are not useful. The idiocracy is emergent.
@haacksnetworking (although, to be fair, the US is a front runner by a long way).
