Generally speaking, people in the US use 'o', while those in commonwealth countries (even if they despise Enlgand) use 'ou'. Both are correct, I believe.

"For while I am opposed to all orthodox creeds, I have a creed myself, and my creed is this. Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so. This creed is somewhat short, but is long enough for this life; long enough for this world. If there is another world, when we get there we can make another creed. But this creed certainly will do for this life."
- Robert G. Ingerso


"To be is to exist as a creation of circumstance, to live is to have the will to change that"


"The people that think we are a joke will applaud us for our sense of parody. The people who think we are serious will applaud us for our groundreaking artistic vision"


"This is what happens when you play hypotheticals. You end up in a barren wasteland, without beer, koalas or power ballads.

I hope you've learned your lesson."


"The World As We Know It Becomes A Little More Impossible Every Day "


"That was so fucking money. That was like the Jedi mind-shit. " -Swingers


I have a ton, I'll get some more later.
