SGT. PEPPER-------

I've smoked plenty of weed in my time.  But NEVER smoked any WEEK!  [wink]   Is it just as good as weed, cheaper, easier to obtain?  Or what??  [confused]

I am a s-hitty speller. My big neanderthal thumbs sometimes smash down the wrong letters.

The 'K' is on the other side of the keyboard from the 'D"! How big are your thumbs?

One time the teacher who taught the special kids in Junior High School - he was my baseball coach in high school - goes to me "You're a smart guy and I have to tell you stuff over and over, just like I have do with my special kids in class.  What's your excuse?"

So what's you guys' excuse?

I'm a product of the California school system from the early 70's to the mid-80's. That is my excuse. And I'm standing by it.

I also took two years of French in High School which has come in handy exactly zero times in my life.

Same as the guy who posts that his high school baseball coach, "goes to me"  instead of "said to me", or "Asked me".  [cool]  AND could have began by stating, "Once,"  instead of "One time", leaving us to think another BAND CAMP story was coming our way!  [wink]  And too, should have put "Your guys" "  and not "You guys' "

"You guys'" would be more correct than "your guys'" — although a simple, collective "your" would have sufficed.

English is a tough language. I've been using it all my life and I still haven't mastered it yet.

I don't harbor any doubts that I live near a harbour. My neighbor in the neighbouring house feels the same way.

How about "also" instead of "too"?  We could do this all day. 😂

Or, "As well"?  

Idk man, "and as well" sounds weird to me.

Explaining English language to growing children made me realize how wild it is. Words spelled the same different meanings, sometimes these letters sound like this and other times they sound like that… I get perplexed at times how to explain what everything means and supposed to sound like when I try to teach my little ones. I just tell them you have to keep practicing at reading and writing to get the hang of what we all should know how to do as adults.

Whaddayou, some kind of English teacher?  I talk conversationally on here 'cause some of you guys aren't all that swift.  'Cause of you guys, not 'cause of me.  I get paid to be smarter than other people.  I have since I was 22.  That's 42 years of getting paid for outsmarting people.  How many years for you?

I'm a retired autoworker.  And it just goes to show that one needn't be "specially" educated or paid to speak and spell the language properly.  I feel too that it's in my nature to be helpful in assisting people I like to not appear to be less  astute than they're capable of with a minimum of effort.   It all goes to serving a maxim an English teacher I had in Junior high on the usage of proper grammar liked to use(  I feel he self censored it a bit.  [wink])   -------

"If you can't blind them with your brilliance, then dazzle them with your BS!"  [flapper]   Driving home the point that being ignorant is bad enough.  There's NO NEED in SOUNDING IGNORANT too.  [cool]  After all, as you( who got paid) mighty well know, ignorance DOESN'T equal stupidity.

Some of the worlds greatest minds are clashing for the title but who will be victorious?! 
 

Coming in on the left we have BBP with monetized intellect and fluency in the language of the common man

 

On the right we have Whitefang the grammatical fanatical. His writing may be flawed but he has a heart of gold. Although retired as an autoworker, he has dedicated his free time to correcting people on a guitar forum.

 

Both super cool, smart guys. WHO WILL REIGN SUPREME????
