    Yup. And it goes deeper than Funk and Webster. Scrabble recognizes yup.

    ’E carried me away
    To where a dooli lay,
    An’ a bullet come an’ drilled the beggar clean.
    ’E put me safe inside,
    An’ just before ’e died,
    'I ’ope you liked your drink,’ sez Gunga Din.
    So I’ll meet ’im later on
    At the place where ’e is gone—
    Where it’s always double drill and no canteen.
    ..."

    I kinda like contractions. Acronyms, however, I'm not as fond of.

    I think you meant “Lovers’ quarrel,” no?

    A lover's quarrel is when only one of them is mad. ;) :D

    Without doubt. How could I have been so obtuse? With Sac Arrow, his uncle, the horse, some innocent sheep—just consider the combinations and permutations of that barnyard geometry. Rural and plural. I heard their gonna put on a show and call themselves The Aristocrats.

    I think you meant “they’re” instead of “their.”

    It's important to point out that y'all is singular, all y'all is plural. :D

    Equally important is spelling, when writing about grammar.

    She couldn't pass the spelling test.

    No, y'all is plural. All y'all is more plural.

    Your son and his two friends come into the room.

    You say "hey, y'all come over to the house for supper tonight, we're having barbecue".

    Your son says they're going to connect with their girlfriends and go out.

    You say "Well shucks, why don't all y'all come down for supper first?"

    So far I've found both result in some sort of non-moving violation ticket and a decent sized fine...

    I'm good with RADAR, LASER, SONAR. It's the ones in IT that change every few months, often driven by vendors to try to create new market spaces, or people peddling new management strategies. BLUF, LEAN, CSMA, SAAS, PAAS, GAN, VDI, SDN. It's f&*&ng endless. Added to that, within our organization, no new project seems to exist without it's own new acronym, which sometimes conflict with another acronym in common use, because business solution guys don't know what network geeks are speaking. I know, first world problem for sure.

    I think there's more than a few loose apostrophes running around here.

    Since this is a nitpicking thread, I have to jump in here, go to full nitpick pedantic mode, and say that's not true. I don't see any irational or trancendental number in that post. I do see a rational number which looks to be the identical to the first 11 digits of the irrational trancendental number pi, but, as written, the number in the post is merely a number which can be expressed by a fraction.

    I hate the use of the phrase "more than" followed by an exact number. ie, "The thief got away with more than 93 lawn gnomes."

    Was it like 94 lawn gnomes? Or...100?

    It's all good and fun until someone gets injured by a lawn gnome.

    Rumor has it there were 97.4 gnomes.
    Detectives are still looking for the 0.6

    Looks like after the outlawing of Jarts, people started sharpening the heads of lawn gnomes and tossing them.

    It's like dwarf tossing, but with a point.

    "What is your location?"

    I possess a few locations. But you probably want to know which one I am at.
