    Yes, you do have a warped sense of humor. A reasonable reply to your question would take a l-o-n-g time.

    Texts or underlying manuscripts? For text differences alone you might try using Biblegateway for comparisons of your favorite verses and see how differently they are rendered. That might be a starting point.

    Even an outline of how the KJV differs from other translations that were done before it would be enormous. As I recall, the KJV translators gave credit in their preface to earlier translations. The KJV is also known as the Authorized Version; it was authorized by King James to formalize his concept of Christianity, naturally giving the ruler supreme authority and placing his personal Protestant doctrine above that of the Catholic church.

    It was indebted to several Protestant versions - & also (though this is not mentioned in the "Preface to the Reader") - to the 1582 Rheims New Testament, a Catholic translation.

    The Authorised Version (as we call it in Britain) owes a great deal to Tyndale as well. As might be expected.
