More diaries by prog51x
Sick people out there
this headline came from a Mag called New York Post this overall is one of the real ones and I stumbled upon it today when I was ringing up items at ShopRite the place that I work and the headline showed a pic of a normal lady and then a really ugly pic of her and I was like "what the hell" then I read the headline and it said "I survived the MidWest Bloodbath" and that my friend looked real serious I am going to do some looking up on it and ill post more tomorrow about this BloodBath plague in the MidWest... -Pete

I've got a batch of brand new full stops and commas. You won't find these in the shops, I've got an exclusive supplier. The are seriously good - the latest models. You interested? Of course you are. I'll cut you a great deal. Cash only of course. Get in touch.

It's called a period, not a full stop. Please learn to speak properly.

Peace and much love...

It is a shame that you can't stop languages evolving, especially when that evolution appears to endorse a 'dumbing down'. Whilst you may consider "period" to be the 'proper' word to use, I think you'll find that "full stop" can adequately be used as a synonym. (Yes, I know that there are dictionaries that won't include 'full stop'. It doesn't matter - they eventually will.)

Look, I don't like it any more than you, but if the masses want their full stops, then their full stops they will have. Period.

It isn't used in the UK because the word already refers to the gushing red effluent that jets out of British women's fannies each month.

If you're an American, and are very confused at the previous sentence, it is because the word 'fanny' also has a different meaning in the UK (meaning minge, flange, etc.). This is why we are very amused when you talk about beating your fannies, fanny packs, etc. -- because it isn't

oh yes, see our childish faces light up whenever anyone talks about 'period funiture' (chuckle), a 'period fireplace' (teehee!) or the famous French gynecologist Pierre Iode (fnar fnar)

Would you care to share it with the rest of the class?


Very well then, you shall be detained for interrupting everybody else's lesson. Come see me at the end of the period. -- because it isn't

I remember when we got our first shoprite in Lusaka and Ndola.

How excited we were.
