Cops are a reasonably prudent person, by definition!

Good Luck and Good Night
Wild makeup sex makes there first fight worth it.
Try imagining this scene:
You see your neighbors standing outside their house, picking up garbage that they accidentally spilled on the ground.
You point at them and say to your friend: “Look over there [location], they’re [they are] picking up their garbage [possession].”
Spell out your contractions. Replace can’t with cannot, you’re with you are, and they’re with they are.
This way, you will catch yourself if you make a mistake in writing.
The students misplaced they’re books = The students misplaced they are books.
Here, the second sentence makes no sense; hence, it is improper usage.
Another hint: “there” has “here” buried inside it to remind you it refers to place, while “their” has “heir” buried in it to remind you that it has to do with possession.
Remember there, their, and they’re by the following rules:
there: the word “here” is in there so refer to there as a word for location.
their: the word “he” is in their so refer to their as a word for people.
they’re: there is an [ ' ] in they’re so they’re is like “they are”. Instead of saying they’re, say “they are” to see if it makes sense.
If you have “there is” or “there are” then it’s always “there” — you’d never say “they’re is” or “they’re are” or “their is” or “their are”.
If you’re unsure if you’re using “their” correctly, try replacing it with “my” —the sentence should work with the substitution.
For example: Their house is purple. If you replace “their” with “my” the sentence still makes sense: My house is purple. So, you know you’re using “their” correctly.
Turn off the auto-correct feature in your word processor. People tend to get lazy and forget special rules when the computer automatically corrects mistakes like the ones listed above.
If you’ve ruled out “they’re” or “their” as the correct form, then “there” is one you should go with!
Learning to spell correctly can help you succeed in school, get a good job, and not be an annoyance to people that have taken the time and effort to learn how to spell.
Excerpts from orchidcup’s song:
“Yeah, I’m sittin’ on this bar stool talking like a damn fool
Got the twelve o’clock news blues
And I’ve given up hope for the afternoon soaps…”
whoo are these crazy generals? names please
curry and dvorak passionately arguing
the definition of a ‘hipster’… priceless
Can’t believe Adam was on the verge of tears when Dvorak questioned his knowledge of the hipster. Adam didn’t really know but his knee jerk anti-racial hipster jab to Dvorak was more or less misguided.
Hey John C. there are blacks in New York who ride fixed gear bikes and wear thick black framed glasses and messenger bags filled with Macbooks too. Just because they don’t have them in San Fran doesn’t make it so everywhere.
Adam “loving” John towards the end was sweet. I always thought that John was the top. Maybe Adam is more bi-curious than previously thought.
Is more like Adam sees John as a fatherly figure.
Pedro, you’re probably right. My parents can push my buttons like no one else. Adams feelings were truly hurt, it was palpable and lingered on through the Linux and Wine on a Macbook conversation.
I am still trying to figure out why John’s doubting of Adam’s knowledge of the Hipster movement struck to the core of Adam’s being. John is always bashing a lot of 2nd half of the show stuff and Adam is unphased.
Because Adam is always trying to make John proud of him. So when John says something that puts him down, he feels very bad about it.
IOW, he looks to John for affirmation & validation and when he thinks John is just putting him down unfairly, it hurts, just like most father/son relationship.
I’m still trying to figure out what “Emo” means. Seems to be part fashion statement, part sexual lifestyle. Maybe. I haven’t heard Hipster used in decades. Talk about things that ought to be retired.
