  • I agree with the two c's or two s's! but i am a really bad speller...I dont know how i passed english! LOL but what i dont get is believe is just that....b-e-l-i-e-v-e but receive is r-e-c-e-i-v-e...I know you probably know how to spell that, but isnt that weird that they sound just the same at the end yet the e and i are backwards? or is it just me?! LOL
