    Don't despair, i'm not over 40 and I watched the old BSG, and the A-Team, too.

    and the correct answer is you can't.

    As a biology professor who is constantly working to convince my students that, yes, they need to write properly in my class to get full credit even though it isn't an English class, that makes my brain hurt.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I get to read stuff like that all the time from my "English as a second language" co-workers.

    Here is something that my boss sent out moments ago...

    "To my knowledge when The printing is shift normally cause by manufacture. I think Unitech have to explain this issue."

    Thanks boss... oh my brain. Now why was it that I took those upper division writing classes again... sigh.

    The interesting thing is that to print that gas pump sign on a card or some paper, someone had to type it into something... I just typed it into Word 2010, and Word found 4 errors... including the obvious misspelling.

    In particular, Word highlighted "Pump's" and "You're" as incorrect grammar usage. So now we know that at least Word 2010 is "smarter" than the gas station operator.

    My dad is a retired Chinese history professor. He had many students for whom English was a second language, so he became adept at understanding the meaning rather than correcting grammar. So much so that he nearly lost his ability to correct papers.

    I'm a Curriculum Project Manager at a university. Some of the stuff the professors (actual Ph.D professors) turn in as curriculum is horrendous.

    All week, every time I check new posts in this thread, that pic of the chick and the kangaroo flashes up first before the page finishes loading. Every time, my first thought is that it's porn. The kangaroo's fur is vaguely human-skin-colored, and there is no evidence of the chick wearing any clothes. Plus she's hot.
