Something that I found on FB...
« on: January 31, 2018, 12:53:59 PM »
So, I shared this image 4 years ago today, and I figured I'd spread the word. I still amazes me at the sheer number of native speaking Americans that can't get this without a cheatsheet. -_-
Never say never or always. In most cases, there is an exception to anything you can think of that you might use either word in. "Most likely" and "highly improbable" in a lot of those cases would ring true, but not never/always.

LOL

I feel like we're one of the few places left that use better grammar than the rest of the Internet and even then, we're far from perfect. :P

The tediousness of paperwork makes my eyes burn and head hurt. Yet it is a necessary evil we all share. I like swords. Swords are simple. They aren't confusing or evil. Just straight forward implements of death. Have a nice day. ~GW

They forgot "it's" and "its", though. :p

Somehow I learned all of those very well in school. I guess I'm lucky!

Another one that a lot of people have trouble with: Affect vs Effect

Affect is usually a verb, and it means to impact or change. Effect is usually a noun, an effect is the result of a change.

Or half the time you can just use impact for either one   :l^_^
