I happen to agree that it's a bit annoying to see people constantly using them wrong.

Yet they say teachers are underpaid........ ;-7

LOL! My high school teachers were idiots. The grading was ridiculously easy; I could turn in a first draft, not even a single correction aside from on-the-fly typo correction, and I'd get 95% and comments such as, "Nice editing!"


Yeah, it's amazing how truely stupid some high school graduates are. I made the joke about teacher's pay, but the whole school system is totally screwed up. It needs major changes and fast. The graduating classes just keep getting dumber and dumber.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

If none of that made sense to you, let me translate.

It's actually quite easy to disprove this preposterous nonsense.

Everything here is misspelled, using the exact inverse of every word, sans the first two letters.

Actually, yours is much more difficult to understand than that other 1.

heck, if it were my forum, this would be a sticky.


I have a few pet peeves such as the difference between "fewer" and "less than" and the fact that something is either unique or not, there are no degrees of uniqueness - so you cannot say "more unique". Also the difference between "if it were my forum" and "if it was my forum".

The pier is the structure that you can walk on - it's often made of wood and juts into the body of water.

The dock is the space where you park your boat. It is filled with water.

You cannot sit on the dock of the bay.


That's classic. ;-D

Because his description does not match what he actually did. Only the first letter is the same, so the whole "sans the first two letters" is just an utter lie.

And yea it is much harder to read, I couldn't really get a couple of the words.

Blankman- I think you should look again. His description matches exactly what he did.

While we're complaining about grammar:

Apostrophes
Singular possessive = Player's
Plural possessive = Players'
Singular, neuter possessive = Its (no apostrophe)

Learn it. Use it.

No it doesn't. He kept the first and last letter the same, not the first two letters.
