I typed these mostly off the top of my head, I am guilty of not doing it all the time but some of you I really do question if you know the difference...

use your when you are referring to ownership/possession

use you're as a contraction for 'you are'

use to as a preposition

use too as an adverb (meaning also, as well, along with, to extent, more)

use there as a place or destination

use their referring to ownership/possession

use then as an adverb labeling labeling a time (then has 'e' like when)

use than in conjunction/comparisons (than has 'a' like compare)

use accept meaning to receive something

use except as a preposition meaning to exclude

use effect as a noun

use affect as a verb

A joke I am not so sure:

use no as an answer or decision

use know meaning you have learned something

"I couldn't care less" is the proper term not "I could care less", think about that one.

"Irregardless" is a double negative, it is NONSTANDARD aka used enough by illiterates (has enough hsitory) to not be insulting but is not a standard word. Regardless is correct. Ir mean no, so you're saying no not regarding (double negative).

Those who flame most likley got helped the most.

Feel free to add, I am sure those who need it most would never google it.

You're welcome, JOAT.

"HAM like Cam Newton" is NOT a proper sentence.

    • lol like funchess needs to worry about celebrating
    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
