I'm interested in this grammar conversation, can I be included?


As long as Miss P manages to overcome the grammatical error in this sentence, then the chances are good.

Most likely, you do.  But who cares?  Grammar's overrated.  It's functional, not aesthetic.



(PS:  Never, EVER quote me on this.  It won't allow me to be a proper grammar Nazi.)

maybe someone else will discuss something else with me while everyone else is talking about grammar.

I'm about to make it a requirement that J's SO drops in.

I'll join you in not talking about grammar. Just don't make any subtle jokes and we'll have a good time.

i'm all about the subtle jokes.

No worries.  My conversational tactics are incredibly flexible.

Have you not been to a bar in SF?  They're all too loud for civil conversation.   ;)

I predict J will add a slew of new expletives to his vocabulary when he encounters the grammatical pitfalls inherent contract law. Just to illustrate with a non-contract but very grammar-related famous example: when Clinton said "it depends on what the meaning of 'is' is", he was in fact correct, from a legal (and grammatical) point of view. Fairly warned be ye!

And will there be a vote on the meeting place?

What, you want this to be democratic? I plan on following GoalieDespot and Mugatyrant around.


Hmm.  This thread has taken a very Lord of the Flies-like turn.  I approve.  Proceed.

No votes here.  You heard Cal.


Also, thanks for the mappage, Caleroni.
