Disney posted the notice on its official website.

Not to be confused with unofficial Disney websites, whivh are numerous.

The use of charcoal grills are also prohibited, however, propane grills are permitted.

I'm the proofreader for my work group, and one coworker loves using "however" in this exact way -- to connect two run-on sentences.  I finally told her, "look, whenever you find yourself putting 'however' in the middle of a sentence, just drop the 'however' and make two sentences."

Also, it's "The use IS prohibited" not "the use ARE prohibited".

Back when Jay Leno still did The Tonight Show, one "Headlines" segment featured one that read, "One out of ten students fails to graduate."  And Leno mocked it like, "Haha 'students fails' haha!"

Even though the headline as written was entirely correct.  (The subject is one, not students.)

No way dude.... Tiki Room is my savior.  My personal Jesus Christ.  (Anaheim version)

My wife loves that show and takes the 2 kids with her.  I refuse to join.  When she gets into the corral to wait for the next show, I bolt down Main St., exit the park, walk quickly over to California Adventure, and buy two beers.  I chug them both, head back to Disneyland and meet her and the kids just as they're existing the Tiki Room.

And everyone is happy.  I have suggested to her on more than one occasion, "Don't you want to go to the Tiki room again?  I think the kids really enjoy that show.... don't you kids???"

And yet if it said "Ten out of 100 students fails to graduate," it would be wrong, Grammar and fractions don't get along very well.

That's because it's a prepositional phrase, not a fraction.

Rephrase both as "Out of ten students, one fails to graduate" and "Out of one hundred students, ten fail to graduate" and the subject-verb agreement is easier to see.

I don't know about Disney World, but I was at Disney Land a month ago - on a weekday - and it was miserable. I've been there many times and I'd never seen it so crowded. We paid more than $400 for my family of 4 and got to ride maybe 10 rides.

Knott's Berry Farm was a much better value.

Sometimes I wonder why people go to Disney parks for the rides. That's not what Disney parks are for. If your plan for the day is to go on rides, pick someplace else.

They really suck when you can see the flames from your front porch. I'm just glad no one got hurt and the FF's are all okay. Tourist staying up the road got all 'everybody panic' in the middle of the street. I suggested a rum, sit your arse down and chill. Nope. 'How can you be so calm?'  Nothing I was going to do was going to change anything so; meh. I'll wait here til they tell me not to.

I was at the store earlier and people were biatching because they could smell smoke. Seriously Folks???

Yup, we're having one of our less common three-season years.  Normal years have the wet,hot season and the cool,dry season.  Every few years they get split apart by "OMG! Everything is on FIRE!" season.  Hopefully we don't reach 1998 levels.

You seem pretty good at grammering.  That's why I'm wondering why you said that, "in this exact way", they're connecting two run on sentences.  They're using "however" to connect two sentence that are not run on sentences to make one run on sentence.
