Yeah, I can smell the chicks getting wet whenever I use "whom" correctly.

/Whom
//Whom
///*sniff*

Does having a good command of an extended verbiage count for something? I can be verbose when I want to be

Indeed I can as well be folkish in my talk. My mood bids my tongue.

I was conjugating with this chick last night and let me tell you, she was into some irregular shiat.

Golly, Mr. Lamar, you use yer mouth purtier than a two-dollar whore!

Proper use of the subjunctive may lead to a nice conjunction, were I to relate it.

Did she leave your participle dangling long?

I know that 'please', 'thank you', and 'may I...' get librarians all hot and bothered. But that's more about politeness than correct grammar.

Remind me to go and thank my grandpa for his sage advice in telling me as a child to "talk correct".

No. No it doesn't.

Seems I can't post Nazi fetish pics to this thread. God dammit I've tried. And it's the perfect place.

Good grammar will help you get laid

But correcting someones  grammer will not.

What do want?
Good grammar or good taste?

CSB:
Back a little over 10 years ago I put a profile up on match.com. In the clever and humorous profile I had written I had correctly used a semicolon. A woman read it, thought it was funny, and noticed the correct usage of the semicolon. She decided to respond and we were married 2 years later.

While dating, she mentioned the semicolon thing to me, and then added, "And it's a good thing it was there, too. It helped me overlook the fact that you used the word 'you're' instead of 'your.' I almost skipped your profile completely based on that."

Everyone should absolutely know their intensifiers, all graded quantifiers, and most of the partitives.  Negative questions and tag questions have differing functions depending on rising or falling intonation, don't they?  Selected past participial adjectives are not interchangeable with functioning present participial adjectives.  Care should be taken when using modals with the passive voice.

/oh yeah, literally drowning in poon over here

Figuratively, surely, unless you are posting from the poon afterlife.

In spite of a 1 dimensional cultural perception of only looks mattering at large, data driven analysis shows that behaviors that exhibit education or intelligence act as stand-ins for socio-economic status in assessment by the opposite gender of reproductive fitness.

Besides, you said drowning, not drowned. I suppose it could be possible to post on Fark while actually drowning. Heck, probably the reason you're drowning; hard to swim while poking away at a keyboard or tablet.

English majors cannot get jobs.
When English majors cannot get jobs, they have no money.
When they have no money, they have no sex.

I refute it thus.

If writing well also gets you laid then the author of that article is a virgin.

It used to be a lot easier. "Throw another shrimp on the barby" or, "Do you have any grey poupon?" would get you a lot of mileage.
 
2014-05-02 11:45:38 PM
Yes, I'm sure the author's sixteen-year-old friend got laid (thrice) because of her grammar skills and not her obvious willingness to put out.
