I was amused to read the following passage in M.E. Thomas' Confessions of a Sociopath, which I just finished last night: 'I use Britishisms when I can remember to do so. I have noticed that other sociopaths do this as well - there are several whom I know to be Americans who internationalize their language and their cultural references, the result perhaps of their natural instincts to obscure and befuddle. It's not enough to try to keep your personal information out of reach. One must also actively poison the well with disinformation.'
