I must admit.. - 03-25-2012, 07:57 PM

.. I was not very good at English in school. Spelling, sentence structure and in general the proper use of the language were always very confusing to me. I was however decent at math.

Therefore, I was able to determine that hiring a technical writer with a MS from Duke was much more cost effective (?) for my business. This did free up quite a bit of my time formerly spent on more mundane tasks and has allowed me to follow in detail (excruciating detail at times... ) the on-going concerns of the pool playing community here on AZ billiards. Example - I am now off to find out if any progress was made on the next TAR match?

However having her edit posts here would not increase our productivity so this really isn't a solution that I could apply to your secondary concern.

Hopefully in the near future all of this "editing, grammatical, spelling stuff" will have an automated solutions to check for violation of the arbitrary rules that the English language has burden us with (i before e,, RAVEN (OMG), etc.) since ... well I don't know when ... got to be something to do with the Germans and the Normans carving up Britian.. ... Nuff of this stuff... what happinin with TAR 25?

However, it has the start of what could be the bestest thread in a long time.



I believe that their is much potential hear.

It could be better then many of the other threads posted today.

But you have to be able to no it when your reading it.

You're comprehension and righting skills have to be slightly better than others.

The others can have there threads but we will subscribe to this one.

Lets make this thread more funner than the others.

This is absolutely HILARIOUS!! LMAO!!!

I would tend to agree. I grew up on a farm, in very modest financial circumstances, and people in the community worked like fiends. I spent a good portion of my youth at a number of jobs, all laborious, and then spent 12 years attending university, and now work in one. I frequently cross worlds between the work of labour and work of the mind, and, like you, see folks who put their literal and metaphorical backs into it everyday.
That said, I'm not going to critique anyone's grammar here, because I don't think it would be particularly appreciated, and I'm doubtful that people log in to AZ hoping to be tested. I'll save that for my students [If I'm wrong, feel free to PM me, and I'll be happy to make you feel lousy about your grammar/spelling/punctuation/sentence structure/vocabulary].

I have found that correcting people's grammar is a great way to be popular!

Yeah, not so much. There is a time and place for everything. This is a pool forum.


What do you teach?

I teach light duty stuff like Biochemistry, Trauma, Surgery, Rheumatology, Molecular Biology....and more....you know...the lighter side of post graduate education......

Ever since I received ( see, Eye before E except after See) a chemistry set for Christmas when I was younger, I always wanted to be a Mad Scientist like you Doc.

Titelist - I think that might be a person who won or received a Sporting title.

Titlist - I think that might be a guy who has a list of girls with nice tatas.

What a difference an E can make, EH?


To play Pool, is to suffer.
To learn to be a better player, is to find some meaning in the suffering.

Well....with time, dedication, and determination you still can!!!!! Just dust off that chemistry set. Mix everything in it together over an open flame. If you survive, feed the results to a hamster to see what happens!

That's not so hard!

It's more better than not trying, right?





Oh....and don't forget to document your results.

Red Coma at night, posters delight.
Red Coma at morning, posters take warning.

I agree with one poster. People that feel the need to Quote an entire post, including pictures just to make one comment.
Can you not learn to Highlight one sentence, copy and paste it to your post?

Good advice. And, to make it clear that only a portion of the original text is being quoted, one can add an ellipsis (series of three dots) before and after the quoted text -- as I did in the above quote.
