You need more than commas to fix that headline, subby.

Cuts slices and lacerates?

Never mind the headline. Do we get the good strippers, or do we just get JFK and Stalin?

It looks like the high school mascot is the Miramar Patriots. Yeah, I was confused by that, too.
 
2021-10-27 10:27:56 AM  
What was the objectionable headline? Because the one on there now makes perfect sense.

Ha, the banner above it is Halloween Kills with a picture of Micheal Meyers brandishing a long knife, perhaps a sword.

The original headline implied that the murder victim instead killed the three plotting to kill him once he found out and was still alive while the three were dead. Something like 3 Florida teens dead classmate charged in plot.

Have an emotional connection with girl. Girl has sex with another guy. Blame the guy. Never understood that logic. Or lack of.

You live in a country where 70 million voted for an Idiocracy president. Asked and answered, I'd say.

Nothing to see here.  Need a pic of how it was phrased before they fixed it...or a pic of your diploma.

I didn't know there was an "original headline" as all I saw was "3 teens charged with killing H.S. classmate with knife and sword"
 
2021-10-27 10:47:24 AM  
Am I missing something?  Did the article change its headline?

What I see from the link is "3 teens charged with killing H.S. classmate with knife and sword"

The headline of the Detroit News announcing JFK's assassination was KILL KENNEDY.

Found it at an estate sale and was like WTF?

Did you imagine they killed the high school?

Did you imagine the one killed had the knife and sword?

Are you numb to the fact that some boy children are taught that they can kill people who sleep with girls that they have feelings for?

After a little snooping, this guy's ex-girlfriend had moved on from him and allegedly had sex with the victim. He decides he has to murder the new boyfriend.  He gets two girls to help him do it. And, of course, they left an e-trail. They will be charged as adults, so now they released names and photographs even though they are juveniles. Here's a nice photograph of the three people who just threw their lives away.

i understand

but grammar doesn't really bother me until it starts to affect the clarity of the sentence.  if it's something minor, i don't pay any attention.  if it's so bad that the clarity of the sentence and/or meaning of it is affected, then i turn into a grammar nazi and poke fun at the AI guys writing the headlines.

l love engrish.

If they are found guilty then lock them up so long that when they get our their lives are forever ruined.
