Isn't this how greenlighted (greenlit?) threads end up with hundreds of posts?

Yes s/he did. And don't call him Shirley.

Or... you could just spruce up this thread with a few pics, if you know what I mean. And I think you do.

Just playing double's advocate here, maybe the writer shouldn't of done that article with a ship on his shoulder right from the gecko.

Irregardless, it's not that we take typos wrong, per say, but that we just take good spelling and grammar for granite.

That'd be too off-topic. It's Friday, so I'm sure there will be an appropriate thread for that soon.

Since I'm leaving work at noon today, I'll be free to bring out the really good stuff.

Ok, I'll toss one out.  Is "staffs" the proper plural of staff?  MSWord seemed to think so, when I was writing a lot of reports, and editing those written by others.  To wit:  "the staffs of the hospital" (or hospital staffs - at a single hospital) rather than staff of the hospital, or hospital staff?

/always bugged me, but not enough now to research it
