payed

OMG-no!

It's spelled "PAID"

unless you were letting out a rope.

People who comment on Slashdot are hard core about using it.

Oh sweet painted lady
Seems it's always been the same
Getting payed paid for being layed laid
Guess that's the name of the game

Sweet Painted Lady – Bernie Taupin, Elton John – 1973.

  1. Amen to that, sir!

  2. People who do that, well, their dumber then a bag of rocks. Am I right?

  3. It is possible that they are. lol

  4. oops. I should have said "its!"

  5. Now let me Pontificate here, from afar.The temptation is always there to correct what one percieves to be a spelling or grammar mistake. If you have understood what it is that the person is attempting to communicate then it is completely unnecessary to correct that person. It's also very rude. Spelling and grammar only need to be absolutely correct in legal documents. This is the word of the Brian.hahaha !

  6. That would eliminate all the fun of being an Internet grammar nazi. :p đŸ˜€

  7. Ya know what I hate about cell phones? Many carriers limit text messages to 160 characters. That makes constructing a proper sentence more challenging than I usually have the patience for.I'm a horrible grammar snob, although I've mellowed over the years. No longer do I lash out at the grammatical imperfections of other. Now I just assassinate their character in my mind. I probably should have finished my English degree and become an editor.

  8. To add gaiety to my whining in this post, here are some other peeves of reading/writing/speaking:–the folksy way in which recent US Presidents address the nation. GWB took it to an art form including snorting through his nose. It wasn't always the way it is now. I won't even go into the fairly recent government love of the word "homeland" which has Nazi Germany written all over it. "Homeland" used to be "the nation, national, the republic, etc."–using an uncommon acronym in a semi-formal writing piece without spelling out what it is. The first time an acronym is used, it should be spelled out (or hyperlinked), then it can stand alone for the rest of the piece. I don't know what TPASSAG is, usually.–similar to the above, using stupid references such as "it's just like Kabuki theater" or "just like reading a John le CarrĂ© novel." I see these two every day, even in what is supposedly professional journalism. I've never seen Kabuki theater nor read a John le CarrĂ© novel. Yeah, I can look them up, but I know most times these silly references are used, the writer isn't familiar with them either. I don't know why journalists compulsively use them. I guess it's to seem "hip."–throwing an incendiary comment into a forum that's in a language that is not really your own, then when everybody verbally whips your ass, cry out, "well, English (or whatever) isn't my native language." Waaahh! Sometimes you really shouldn't play around if you can't defend yourself. Sometimes I want to go full bore in some Spanish-language forums, but I either tone it down or refrain from posting if I feel that my chances of messing up are high.I'm not much of a whiner, so I like to let it all out at once. :devil: There are some more good ones I can toss in later.

    OMG, we could have been texting buddies all this time! lol. If you getcha one of them smaahht phones, your texts can run on forever. The 160 limit is still there, they just get seamlessly pieced together. I loved your e-mail-to-text workaround this summer.Originally posted by 0x29a:

    I can't place a comma worth a shit, but it doesn't stop me from silently criticizing others. I'm totally into private character assassination.

    Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Just easydown there, mister. I still do not have a cell phone. Hopefully, will never have to have one again.Originally posted by slackwrdave:

    Yeah, I really enjoyed that. Thank you for letting me part of your adventure.:heart: I hope they — the carriers — never disable that feature. It's just about the coolest thing ever. :dragonfly: :sherlock: :smurf: :troll: :spock: Next to incongruous emoticons, of course. :p

    Dave, if you tell him you'll have to…you know. I'm sure that's not what either of you want.

    OMG…I had forgotten this song ever existed only to have it instantly start playing in my head, and corrupt my longstanding sense of a music world that was free of such odious notions as someone in a dream-state humping their pillow, and mistaking that as some supernatural force guiding them to appropriate relationship choices.You be the judge: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29ec2-jeCw8

  19. Well ! There we have it. I had never heard that song before five minutes ago. Thank you ?

    It jumped into mine the other day as some kind of several-decade-delayed annoyance. I think it was popular when I transitioning my car radio from AM to FM.Originally posted by 0x29a:

    Oh, the days of youth when one could wake up covered with "dat shit." Now it takes a fair amount of pre-planning and work.

    I used youtube-dl to download the video from youtube, and attempted to play it. I never have problems with videos downloaded with this method. I shit you not, mplayer crashed 5 seconds in to the song. I left it at that, and didn't try again.Originally posted by slackwrdave:

    Far too much effort to make it worthwhile.
