    One more before I go to bed (it's dark here).

    The phrase I could care less makes no sense. It's couldn't care less!

    Ok, two. The most mis-used words on the internet are loose being used in place of lose and alot or allot in place of a lot.

    Good night Steve. I try not to care about things that I have not control over.

    You go straight when you get out of prison, if you have reformed. And, you are straight if you are not gay.

    Steve.

    I thought the last time we played the word game, the US saying I could care less was thought to have split from the UK couldn't care less due to the fact that in the US it was reappropriated to be sarcastic, like "I should be so lucky"


    Like someone said earlier here, our differences only make us all special


    Yeah, misspellings like alot and to when too was needed are common

    I absolutely disagree. The second one is it's for its.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    25 cents is a quarter of a dollar. The legal term for a 1 cent coin is a "cent" and not a "penny".

    A double negative is a positive.

    But a double positive is not a negative.

    Yeah, right...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Actually NOT! Towns set their time by the time zone they are in.
