Well, when you're saying numbers I'm pretty sure the correct way is to say it as it is written in number form. If you have a number like 2.5: the decimal point is said as "and" when you're saying it all out. When you're saying a number like 1,003: you aren't supposed to say one thousand and
three. At least, I think that's correct. I think it's more of a grammar/math thing than an actual difference of countries.
I live in Wisconsin, a Midwestern state, and here are some things you should know:
-Yes, we do like cheese. We like it quite a bit. We would like cheese no matter where we lived, though. The same goes for milk.
-Just because Brett Favre is gone doesn't mean we've lost hope in our football team.
-We don't all live on farms with our cows. Ever heard of Milwaukee? It's kind of a big deal.
-It snows here. It snows A LOT. Don't complain about how cold it is when it's barely below 40 degrees F. Try 40 below zero for multiple weeks.
-It also gets really hot here. You might think it's winter all year round, and sometimes it seems like it, but it's not strange for us to have 90 degree F days, or even hotter.
