Grammatical Stupidities – Dec. 2nd, 2018

Five items in total…

“Cyclist dead after hit by vehicle, possible apparent gunshot wound” here.

“Suspect in indecent exposure reports turns himself into police” here.

“…you could then start seeing statistics where potentially black students are getting shot…” here.

“The front doors of the restaurant were shattered but intact”
-and…
“The explosion caused a ‘considerable amount of damage,’ police said, as there were two birthday parties at the time, with children under 10 in attendance” – both in here.

National Post & Toronto Sun “Comments” – September 8th, 2018

I have found in the past that commenting under letters-to-the-editor or news items in the on-line version of newspapers can be an excellent means of getting your point across to quite a large audience.

It is better to just simply post your comment, bookmark it, and check occasionally to see if any critique has been posted that requires a response.

And as I have said before, “Obviously, name-calling and bad language might go over well in the ‘comments’ to be found beneath the published letters, very often the comments contain little else…” so the comments below might not be for the prudish or delicate.

Police humour

Found on the internet; these are said to be real comments made by South Carolina Troopers that were recorded on their car videos:

“You know, stop lights don’t come any redder than the one you just went through.”

“Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they’re new. They’ll stretch after you wear them a while.”

England raises security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved”

EE Times

Clive Maxfield: June 20th, 2011

A friend in England just sent me a rather funny email that describes the various terrorist threat levels used by different countries…

This purports to have been written by John Cleese of Monty Python fame. It certainly sounds like something he might have written, but with the way things zip around the Internet it’s hard to be sure sometimes.
