Everything, but Superman. I had a feeling it started with 'K' and had two parts, but nothing beyond that. I think I only knew that because it came up on another quiz somewhere else on this site.

It is. From Wiktionary:

"Dreamt" is less common than "dreamed" in both US and UK English in current usage, though somewhat more prevalent in the UK than in the US.

That’s because you’re likely American. It’s ok, we know you don’t understand our language properly and we forgive you

Goodness, if those Americans notice this statement they'll have a big whingy retort about how language changes naturally and that it's more standardized than British English anyway, and who are you to say that one language is better than another...

Nah, no need for THAT kind of retort. Rather, we will retort that part of the point of founding a new nation was to be unlike the British as possible and to veer away from (as Ben Franklin put it) "over ten centuries of European mischief".

It's not that we don't understand; it's that being unlike the Brits is the WHOLE POINT.
