> Ah, fuck it. Go mangle the English language. I'll be curled up in bed, sucking on my language-nazi thumb.
Under the flourescent lights, no doubt. Some might say that your a looser! Their wrong, in a worser way than normal. You're comment inspires they're ire but you can likely find the compliment to it in any forum these days. It's pandemic.
Phew,I'm glad to have that out of my system.
For the wannabe language-nazis:
It's fluor, not flour. A fluorescent lamp is coated with a fluor.
"Your" is possessive. "You're" is contraction of "you are", i.e. Your belt might be loose or looser. But you're probably going to be a loser if you gamble in Lost Wages.
Worser is not a word. Never has and I hope it never is. Things go from bad to worse to worst.
Their/they're/there: "Their" is possesive, i.e. Their car is green. "They're" is a contraction of "they are", i.e. They're there already.
A compliment is a nice thing said about you: "You look marvelous" is a compliment. A complement is a match or counterpart (in the literal sense) for something. A Philips screwdriver and screw complement each other. Or it refers to a roster: The platoon is at full complement.
"It's" is contraction of "it is". Its wrong to use it's in any other way.
Well, those are my pet peeves anyway.
