AverageAmericanGuy: If the kids aren't really hurting each other, it's not really much different from competitive sports.

Typical overreaction by the peanut gallery.


Typical comment by someone with a brain the size of a peanut.

A thread about watching 3 year olds fight becomes a thread where we get to watch 3 year olds fight.

hillary: Gecko Gingrich: hillary: "If you're going to encourage three-year-olds to fight while filming it, ..."

While filming "it?" What is "it?" What was being filmed while three-year-olds were fighting? Subby isn't saying, and I don't know what "it" is, unless this is some kind of EST thing, and if that's the case, why would you have three-year-olds fighting when you actually have a physical representation of "it?" I mean, holy shiat, we have finally found "it" and this is what "it" looks like. This is genius!

or not.

English? Remember? Subby, you should learn some of "it."

Basic antecedent/pronoun agreement would indicate that "it" is "the fight". How are you confused by this?

There is no "the fight." "To fight," not the non-existant "the fight," cannot be represented by "it." How are you confused by this? Replace the "it" with "them" and the headline works.

What is scaring me the most is how many of you in here totally fail to understand how and why the headline is a barbarism, and why it is not pedantic to point that out.

I fear for the future, for numerous small reasons like this.


Dude, no one here is writing an essay for AP English. We use conversational English. *Everyone* (including you) knew to what "it" referred.

So, stop being a pedant. We all know that you're the smartest. You win. Now, let it the fark go.

Are you "special"? Only "special" people would not know what "it" represents in this context.
