That's another one of mine! When I hear it on TV or in a movie or on the news, I cringe.

Yeah, I'm no fun to watch TV with. :p

He basically just pissed in the corner of your living room. There are many examples of into vs to...it makes my ears bleed. I see it in professional publications all the time.

Good God, Shut the fuck up, you sound like a fucking twit. Get on with the substance of the discussion. You are starting to sound like a school marm.

oh my, excuse me. I actually had something to post about the enlightenin' I got from this thread, interweaved with discussions about what I was talking about, what I was feeling about these latest incidents, and how they relate to my typical world view and my profession. THen I got embarrassed at my openness and deleted it.

Ha! Good luck with your god shutting me the fuck up.

I'll shut down for a while. I'll never shut up.

I don't want you to to STFU in general, just in the case of picking apart stupid ideas of what you think people should or should not post as they write their thoughts. Now STFU.

There is no God, if there was you would have been smited.

Fuck you, you giant dickhead.

Do you ever get sick of yourself? I mean, I do, myself. But I'm aware of it, and the effect I might have on others. I don't think you self-examine that much, but you should know, for the record...you are tiresome. And boring.

Wow. No. I don't really care that much wtf you or anyone else thinks. But I do respect a lot of people on here. Boring? Wow, crushed, not. What you see is what you get. Do I get sick of myself? No. Not for a fucking minute. If I did I would go and get some drugs to make me accept myself. But alas, I don't feel a need to do that. Or I would just sit around my house and feel sorry for myself. But no, I have never done that. How about you? People do what they have to do to get by in life. I am half way there. So I am going to ride this sled down to the bottom and have a hell of a time on the way there. I hope you can do the same. Peace.

Not one that bothers me. It's simply making two verbal phrases, two verbal concepts packed into one sentence: the trying, and the other one. Though try to is tighter.

Honest colloquialisms don't bother me as would outright barbarisms.

Most of these peevs are examples of different dialects. One dialect in British English (and one in American English) has become dominant and therefore is considered correct. There is a risk, in seeking correct grammatical usage, of devaluing dialects which are just as 'correct' in terms of communication. In Britain this was wrapped up very strongly in regional and class values: we use 'Queen's English'. Queen's English, or Standard English was just the regional dialect of the Home Counties; the wealthiest and most powerful region in the country.

Obviously not. Haven't you seen the healthcare thread? It's like :zzz::zzz::dedhorse::zzz::zzz:

Methinks he hath gone offeth his rocker!

Who was he talking to about drugs and not sitting around and feeling sorry for ones self? Not me, I think. I have a job, and when I hated my job and my life I changed it. I am a lot of things, but a life-moper isn't one of them.

Maybe someone in his family is a druggie and he's going through a hard time. I'm sorry merc, I hope things get better for you real soon. :comfort:
