That's just wrong man. I'm almost out of aspirin.

I'm a chicken pecker typer myself. My nephews that are Marines use correct grammer. As they say it, It seperates us from them. Without periods, comma's, What are we. Your posts are fine. Look at the above and see why!
All the guys in high school in 1972 took the typing class because the teacher had at least 44DD tits, perfect figure, beautiful face, young, wore a mini skirt near always, didn't wear underwear, and usually didn't cross her legs when she sat. Beaver shots amundo. Did I mention she also had a strong sexy southern drawl.

Side benifit: We all typed near 100 WPM and got straight A's to stay in her crowded class. Typing fast and accurate in college also came in handy for term papers that had to be long. PC or laptop computers didn't exist then. I had a Smith - Corona typrwriter for college. Also a person who could type quick and accurate could charge $20.00 and up to type some other dopes paper for them. Paid for alot of beer and more than my fair share of whores.

We used slide rules. Calculators came to be in existance about 1973 and were near $1000.00 for a hand held. A couple years later the same ones were $200.00. Now they are more like $2.99 Also I walked 7 miles to and from school every day because the bus was too much temptation to get into trouble and I always got caught.

Oh... Im 56 Y.O. and still am a sucker for a well built, sexy, educated, young chick. Damn that typing teacher, she ruined me for all other bitches.

I'm 50 this year, so I understand where your coming from. Look at your above post! Perfect. For me it was Miss Leadbitter in 8th grade. No doubt double E's. We use to open all the windows in the winter before she got to class. I traded my 1st wife and upgraded. Although my wife is 47, she is the sexiest woman I know, even w/ sweats.

I'm not an English major, but I do like to make sure that my grammer and spelling are correct. I write a lot, including songs, stories, and such so I try to make sure my work is top notch so to speak. I've always been this way ever since a kid, guess I'm just different than most people my age.

Not to mention I do a lot of a philosophical and religious study in my spare time.

I'll bet. Did you write it all in one breath the same way we ended up reading it?

Maybe that doesn't matter to you.
Do you believe your post is grammatically correct?

Whats the old saying??? Use it or loose it.*

I guess I've lost some of it when it comes to composing some posts on the internet. I forget to use commas, capitol letters, and I mispell words at times. I also have seen that I've recently (the last 3 years) get caught up in run ons,syntax, and other grammer faux pas more and more. Could be age, TIA's, crappy key board, speed of typing, and just not doing it for where it counts for many years.

I bet someone reading this, who knows, can find some grammer errors in this post.
We all make grammar/spelling mistakes. I don't have a problem with mistakes as much as trying to read something written by someone who doesn't give a rip. Why bother writing something that requires a 15 year old to decrypt?

*(Bad news: it's actually "Use it or lose it.")

Actually you are wrong. The contraction "someone's" means "someone is" (as in "someone's gonna get chastised for their bad grammar.") . "Someones" indicates possession, as in an opinion which is what the OP intended.
