This seems to be a contradictory statement.

I haven't said any thing about it because no one has asked an opinion until now.
Lengthy post with not a single period or comma? I don't think you are referring to me.

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.
Ha ha! I took typing because all of the cute chicks were in the class. The teacher was a man. I still talk to him relatively frequently, very cool guy. Before I was enrolled in his class I would walk in and generally disrupt his class because I had that first period free. One day the teacher told me that I was not to walk through his classroom door unless I was enrolled in his class. From then on I would climb up the drainpipe to his third floor classroom and climb in the window to talk to the girls. He never batted an eye when I climbed in the window and kept teaching the class. He ended up enrolling me in his class but I would still climb in through the third floor window. One day he asked me why I didn't use the door since I was enrolled in the class and I said "I was born caesarean so I don't like using the front door."

I never did learn how to type and even today I am a hunt-and-pecker.

Default Possessive case.

I'm right. Someone's in this case means possession, not someone is. It is the same as Bob's, or Jeff's, or Mary's. The apostrophe means possession.

no, I was not referring to yours except in regards to length. You punctuated your post very well.

A better example would be mr. wrays teasing post.

Yeah you really were, but see I just got this new phone, and I have the FTF app. When reading even a 3-4 line post, it fills almost the entire screen on a cell phone. It was just a different perspective.

And what a problem it is. It's the Motorola Milestone X. I love the phone, but like the iphone I had a few years ago, it's gonna take me months to figure this stinkin thing out.
