I wouldn't know it if it bit me on the ass.

Someone can have bad handwriting (or whatever the Taco Bell sign equivilant is called) and still be grammatically correct. I mean, are you going to point out that they used a zero instead of an "O"? Moe P.S. Play along at home! Spot grammer mistake in the above post!

AIM: # 47 Posted on 8.2.02 1408.25 Reposted on: 8.2.09 1429.01 Farooq is the man so hit your knees and start praying! Actually, I believe that that should be "Farooq is the man, so hit your knees and start praying." I think.

While we're on the subject, I've been reading "Under the Mat" (another thread entirely): Page 171, line 11: So a group of wrestler's - Jim Neidhart, Davey, Owen and Shawn - came up with various ideas. I always love it when I catch such stupid stuff in mass published material. I wonder if it was mentioned in the lawsuit... Moe

Am I to believe those are sentences? I am just curious.

I am sure, however, that you understood the context in which they were written. If not, I could explain it for you.

(I thought about putting IANAW or IANAE, but I believe someone already vented about those) Anyways I just have to ask in regards to: I have a standing bet with my better half that she cannot find a "marquee" sign outside a fast food joint that is grammatically correct in every way. If she can find one, she gets $100. We've had this bet for four years. Do you have other rules? If not, why hasn't she paid someone $25 to put up "I win!"

AIM: # 54 Posted on 26.2.02 0631.38 Reposted on: 26.2.09 0659.01 Although it's possible to find interesting opinions with terrible spelling and grammar, and also awful articles with perfect spelling, I usually find that there's a fairly strong statistical correlation between the worth of a piece and the quality of the writing. Besides, it's just unpleasant to have to wade through terrible writing to extract the information content. And even if it's intentionally bad, or humourously bad, or even if the writer knows it's wrong and is perfectly capable of changing it but doesn't, it still means it's bad writing, and I'm less likely to read it.
