    Ye Olde Weekende Gazette..e...

    Weighed in on a topic thread...

    Don't misunderstand me, it was funny. But you don't normally hear that much breathing at a sprinter's finish line.

    And I see you lost part of your colon...so my condolences on that too.

    Which led to the ominous...

    There's a lot of that going around.

    Chimed in on the spanking thread...

    Spare the rod...spoil a perfectly good opportunity to break in a rod.

    My niece was never spanked. She's a terrific gal and an architect. I put Jack in time out ...He understands the whole action/consequence thing and I never negotiate. He gets one "Stop/do this" and then he's in the penalty box.

    Not a literal box though.

    Then GM was back and testy as all get out...

    In the sense that I pay close attention to a woman in labor when she's standing beside me in an elevator.

    He then gives GM a written report, as if he's some self-styled professor speaking to one of his students.
    Well, an oral report didn't seem practical given the distances involved.

    Which spilled into my birthday thread...

    If you think picking at you over punctuation is any of those things you have issues on back order. Also, the semicolon isn't appropriate, the second comma is debatable (depending on whether or not you mean for this to go into a newspaper) and the last one is utterly indefensible.

    What is, your love, affair with randomly, placed commas about? Someone told you about placing them where you breath and you're an excitable asthmatic, or do you only text during a jog between smokes?

    In sports:

    The Seahawks express a lack of interest in Tebow at the back up position...seriously, they did that. So it's looking more and more like a Tebow free 2013 on the NFL beat.

    Profiles in Discouragement: a random glimpse into the richness of profile page life and conversation. The names have been changed to protect...no one really, but there you go.

    First guy: Nice childish remark! I would expect nothing less from you.

    Country Traditionalist: No idea what you're talking about...

    FG: I'm certain your remark was innocent. One might even add, childish in nature.

    CT: One might add a random string of letters to the end of a word, but really, why would one do that?

    FG: I think you might be able to come up with a worthwhile reason! Considering you're such a childlike man!

    CT: I think just getting reason into a sentence written by you should automatically qualify me for a Nobel Prize.

    FG: I believe you think way to highly of yourself as it is! Lets forego the Nobel prize for now!

    CT: Men believe all sorts of things. Some of them are true and some merely convenient. The best way to distinguish between the two is to see how strong an argument you can make of it without relying on feeling and requiring yourself to utilize fact and reason in support.

    In my experience not many people are interested in that. But declaratives? That's more popular than flapjacks.

I knew it the moment I saw what you people call bears.

    Do Americans think that hosting other nations as friends is worth while.
    Americans are like Democrats or snowflakes without all the snow. What I mean is that it's nearly impossible to find two of us that actually think alike, at least when you start in on details, which bores half of us to begin with...

    All our famous beings from down under tend to end up living on your famous soil! As feathers in your cap!
    Same thing with Canadians, though they mostly do it to escape the French among them and to live free, call bacon what it is, that sort of thing.

    Set out a thumbnail of how the legal system works in the Caribou thread...(yes, that one)

    The attorney's jobs aren't to search for the truth.

    The job of the defense attorney is to present a defense.

    The job of the prosecuting attorney is to present the case against the standard.

    The job of the jury or judge is to determine the truth by that standard. And the opposing process and standards are there to guide the proceedings.

    So you were looking in the wrong place Delmar and with the wrong expectations. Justice is the end result of process and rested in your hands. That's how it was always intended.

    While in the latest God thread...

    Yes to the question and as to the why, else I'd still be an atheist.

    I recently wrote a passage in a book about this subject,
    I write in the margins of books all the time.

    Then GM said...

    Oddly enough, you left out a comma that was needed in that sentence. It should have been placed after "legend".

    Your critiques, not so!
    What are you, German? And if you're German how do you get by without the all caps lock?

    Leading to the inevitable...

    That was pretty good as punctuation goes...but you really needed a "to do" in there or maybe harder instead of better, or do instead of try.

    If someone said caribou loudly would you think they were trying to scare you?

    While in OMEGA's "Who here has me on ignore" thread...

    My grandmother is quite fond of the Reader's Digest. There were some funny bits in there, as I recall.



    That's a shame. I found a really good Merlot for under $6.
    How is it that I can be so utterly ignored, shamed, incensed, destroyed by your UTTER lack of commentary?!

    I think it's wonderful. You could begin every sentence with a period and capitalize odd numbered vowels.

    I doubt; you have even scratched the surface of who, you think you're conversing with?
    So you're saying there's more?

    In fact, you're not as smart as you think you aren't!
    But really, who isn't?

    You come off as being extremely arrogant, pompous, and pretentious.
    You come off as someone in serious need of a diary.

    And then, just like that...

    May I say that I! have enjoyed these exchanges, ever so much? There is something about a comma which demands usage, that is to say, from my perspective.
