The Mayan Carpocalypse has come and gone, and few people remember the strange looking GRX Interceptor that was featured late last year and cost $1.8 million dollars when new. We were surprised to get see a comment on that post arrive two months after the fact…and want to share it with our readers:
look cool to me may be you couch potatos should try building something better when u get thru playing mini pocket pool I meet tommy at an auto show very cool smart an rich dude
Congratulations to anonymous! His prize is not a photo of the aforementioned GRX Interceptor built by the cool, smart and rich Tommy…it is the following quote from Phillip Howard’s The State of the Language: English Observed, 1985 :
All we can do is hang on to our colons: punctuation
is bound to change, like the rest of language; punctuation is made for
man, not man for punctuation; a good sentence should be intelligible
without the help of punctuation in most cases; and, if you get in a
muddle with your dots and dashes, you may need to simplify your
thoughts, and shorten your sentence.
When the applause subsides, we will continue our game of mini pocket pool.
