[quote author=wanderer link=topic=4730.msg55503#msg55503 Oh, I know what ya mean. I used "jack off" in my PS, but as you say context is everything. I went with the noun. Said...hey, if you jack off's look at my last year instead of the overall gpa, I think we can make this baby work. I'm still waitin'. Quotei'm totally down with this use of "jack off," but i fear adcoms might be troubled by your misplaced apostrophe!
nope, still wrong, unless you're jane austen; i think it was right when she wrote. apostrophes for plural are rare-- best example is with abbreviations, like "i got two B's this semester so i bought a couple DVD's to celebrate."
Assigning the term Jackoff's to *persons* is the same usage as Smith's, Wilson's, etc. Any rationalization to the contrary is coming from one who intellectualizes using "masturbation" in her PS.
wtf is wrong with you people?
Oookay, let's just say you're right. And, you're right about masturbation!! But, please capitalize Fenway Park even if you are a lower case poster.
