    the difference between your, you're, and yore

    Just so we're all clear:
    your - possessive form of 'you'; refers to something you own or possess; e.g. your bike or your mom
    you're - contraction for 'you are', as in 'you're going biking' or 'Shuffles, you're an a$$hat'
    yore - long ago, as in 'days of yore'
    Also:
    its - possessive form of it, as in 'your bike needs its stem flipped'
    it's - contraction of 'it is', as in 'it's really uncool to expect even fourth grade level spelling on BF'
    Flame on.
    This is the Road Cycling forum. Let's keep it that way, OK?

    No complaints from me. Basic stuff that is advanced for people who say "it's the point, not the grammar, that matters most." Did I use an extra comma?

    No, but you missed a comma as well as made a capitalization mistake.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    you forgot "yourn" and "yournz"
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I hate when I see "it's a mute point."
    mute- silent; refraining from speech or utterance.
    moot- open to discussion or debate; debatable; doubtful: a moot point.
    It's a mute point because I don't want to hear any more about it, damnit!!!!

    Brooch is something you pin on your blouse. Broach is when you bring up a subject for discussion.

    Loose is what your morals are. Lose is what you do with your marbles.

    Brakes are what you have on your bike. Breaks is what happens to your nose if I meet you in a dark alley.

    Peek is what you do through the neighbour's window. Peak is the pointy shape of your hairline.
    Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

    My mother was an English teacher. Her pet peeve was people saying "Lie-berry" for the place with all the books. It still bothers me when someone can't say the word "library." And trying to read (and Coffeecake that rhymes with reed) students papers with to/too/two mixed up has me beating my head on my desk at times.
