I hate Miley Cyrus. Some little girls down the street mistaked me for her a couple times -____-
Are you kidding, bro? Why would we correct posters' grammar, when we can leave them looking like illiterate idiots instead? You guys are responsible for your own sentence structure and spelling. I just sit back, party, and/or swear profusely for no reason whatsoever.
I like how there's an entire thread of comments by and about Grammar Nazis, as well as an insult or two leveled at the original comment, but nobody bothered to help the poor girl out and actually CORRECT her. I think the word you were looking for is "mistook", by the way. Or "mistakeralized". They're both acceptable.
who cares what they spell like? why do you care? this isn't a fucking essay, test, or any school/work assignment you fucking understood what they say so why correct people if someone puts ya, u, r, y, etc they know how to spell the real word so why correct them as if they didn't or as if you didn't understand
184, if they know how to spell the whole word, why don't they? Also, everyone gives the whole 'this isn't an essay' speech. A lot of my friends found that at least once they have written/typed 'u' instead of you on assignments. Typing like that becomes a habit. It's better to stop now.
Vergaso, this isn't the first time you've shown yourself to be an idiot. Whether or not something is comprehensible does not make it correct. I cuold tpye a wohle sentnece leik tihs and yuo wuold undresnad it. Does that make it right? Typing lyk dis on a public forum shows one of two things- 1) that you're too lazy to type out the full word or 2) you're too stupid to know the correct spelling. There is no excuse not to type out "you" rather than "u" or any of the other ridiculous txt abbreviations here, not to mention that using such abbreviations is prohibited in the rules.
DocBastard, there's a difference between making one spelling/grammar error in an entire post and having an entire post consisting of errors. Sometimes, you make mistakes that you can't see until you've made the post. Everyone does it. Even the so-called grammar nazis. Grammar nazis may think they're doing the forum a favor but really, they've turned all of FML into a grammar forum.
"Sometimes, you make mistakes that you can't see until you've made the post." Edit button. It's there for a full two minutes after you initially post. If that doesn't work, go back and fix it in another post as soon as you see it. I don't see why you're defending this, though. There's a clear difference between "mistook" and "mistaked". It's a clear case of the person not knowing the past tense of "mistake".
Really? You stare at your post for a full 2 minutes to make sure there aren't errors? Reasonable people have enough of a life to post and then move on with life. Yes, "mistaked" is a pretty glaring error but we don't need 10+ posts in order to discuss that. And much less egregious errors are torn apart on a daily basis. It's seriously a disease.
first of your 250+ statement is wrong because height is a huge factor if you're 4feet and 250 or 5 feet or 5.5 feet you're a fat ass if you're 6/6.5+ that's fine and what are you talking about why do you lie to her if she even said the truth? she's fucking fat her face is huge and so is the rest of the picture
I'm not making fun I'm stating facts and correcting lies why bother saying she's bot fat when we all know she is and she even said it how does that show I'm insecure that's just elementary counselor talk I'm 6 feet 145 lbs it's not about weight and I'm not insecure about looks you're obviously so ugly you had to dye you're hair so you can say or think that people call you ugly because they don't like you're hair or you're style idk why you have that hair style and hair color it's ugly
It's an easy grade. Little kids across the country can do it. (: In my opinion, it's easier and a lot more fun than pushups, crunches, jumping jacks, and all that boring stuff I had to do everyday in gym. I'd rather dance.
I'm pretty sure I don't need to, agnosticism is the skeptical view about the "organized religion" and the truth in the deities, however, if I'm correct, which I believe I am, agnostics still believe in a "higher power" I'm pretty sure I deserve a sandwich, why don't you go make me one? your technique must be perfected by now Ohh, and btw, I never told you what the you should or shouldn't do, I was explaining the way phrases involving GOD work, ohhh look, I capitalized all the letters in GOD, I must believe in him now go make me that sandwich

Hatey- Those are both names though. They SHOULD be capitalized. If one believes in a god, they'd capitalize the name (e.g. Ganesha, Buddha), whereas the Christian/Jewish god should be capitalized if they believe in him/her/it because of the great importance it holds. Saying God (with capitalization) means you do believe in the Christian/Jewish god and you do respect him as a higher power, the ruler of your world. Saying god (without capitalization) simply means you're referring to what you don't believe in. I've been taught this way back when. I see where you're coming from, and I probably shouldn't have made the assumption that he believes in "God" because he capitalized the name, but that's just how it comes across to me.
It's true that the Christian/Jewish/MUSLIM god noun is usually capitalized by his worshippers, but many devotees of "spiritual but not religious" paths, as well as Buddhists and Hindus, also capitalize the god noun. Many believers do not, and many non-believers do. It's a shaky assumption to make, is all.
I didn't include Muslim because, despite worshiping the same god as the aforementioned, they refer to him as Allah. I don't know if they -only- call their god Allah, though, or if there are other names too. Good point. Other guy - Yeah, I do it all the time. It's kind of my thing.
"Allah" is the Arabic word meaning god, it isn't a name (though capitalized in many instances). Arabic-speaking Jews, Christians and Bahai also use the word in reference to their god. Full disclosure: I know I seem pretty brilliant right now, but this was not previous knowledge, even if it fits my argument perfectly. I thought it was the case, but I did have to look it up.
