    Default Am I the only one who sees the stains a different way

    When I first saw the armor that parson wears, I thought that they were supposed to look like upside-down middle fingers. Is this the conclusion that other people came to, or do I just have strange mind?

    Now that you mention it... I can kinda see it that way. That said, I don't think it was intended >.>

    So...

    Yes, you are strange. So am I at least though <'x'>

    So you didn't realise that it contains a grammatical error then?

    I'm pretty sure they don't teach them the whole "your/you're" thing until Middle School.

    Maybe my district is just full of slow people, though.

    Edit!: No wait, you're right, it is grade school. My mistake.

    You've mispelled grammar. Not only that, but you mispelled grammar in a post which quoted the correct spelling and made a grammatical error by capitalising it unnecessarily.

    No I'm not awared (SP) of any Irony(GR)(accept (SP) for the potential(SP?) of multiple words being mispelled.
    You can do these corrections too. GR represents a grammatical error, by the way. Potential was correctly spelled though.

    To the original poster:

    Yes, I noticed that too to begin with (because i started reading about half way through the comics, instead of at the beginning and didn't know those were suppose to be representations of stains)

    I think there's a small chance that it might be intentional...

    Anyway, to the grammar Nazi, DamnedIrishman:

    Are you aware that you are spelling "capitalizing" incorrectly? Not to mention you didn't even bother to respond to the original poster's point, which I think is very rude of you, and you continue to point out unimportant spelling and grammar errors. If this forum wasn't so tight on cursing, you'd get some from me.

    Edit: you also misspelled the word "misspelled" (twice!) in "You've mispelled grammar. Not only that, but you mispelled grammar in a post which" How's that for irony!

    Note that DI's location is listed as England, meaning that the more accepted spelling of the word uses an "s" and not a "z" and that both forms are, in fact, correct.

    No, the stain always looked like a stain to me. Sorry.

    Naturally, and such would be only fair. After all, the criticism of the OP only started because his signature said that anyone who didn't know what (SP) meant was stupid. If you're going to criticise others for their spelling or grammar, make sure you're watertight yourself. We all make mistakes - the difference is, I don't call others stupid for making them.
    Still, he changed his signature and thus the point is moot. We can all get on with our lives.

    As for the use of 's' in 'capitalising'... well, my language means my rules. You'll be telling me I can't spell aluminium or sulphur next.

    Hm, well, yes, seems like a pointless argument.

    From my point of view (as I had not seen his original signature) it seemed you were starting the whole spelling/grammar thing.

    Anywho, cheerio, as I used to spell things the British way quite a bit too, and no harsh feelings.

    From what I can tell.. you ranted at him with arguments containing errors of your own over the difference between your and you're, which is neither the topic nor important, completely ignoring the topic and instead mocking the a signature. Regardless what the signature contained, trying to start an argument over such an insignificant detail is ridiculous.

    Go troll up someplace else so we can talk about the comic. Then they will all have lived happily ever after; except the place you went to.


    On the ACTUAL topic, now that you mention it, it does sort of look like it. I had never looked at it like that.
