Though he seems a bit upset, He´s convincing.

Take care,

lose - the opposite of win, to misplace something, ONE FUCKING O

loose - the opposite of tight, your mother/wife/sister, TWO FUCKING O's

how can so many people get these two confused? IDIOTS

 

your - a possessive, similar to mine, his, her as in "your loose slut of a sister loses her mind every time she gets railroaded by your whole inbred, shitbag excuse of a family", NO FUCKING APOSTROPHE

you're - a contraction of "you are", as in "you're a dipshit", A FUCKING APOSTROPHE

 

its - another possessive, similar to your, NO FUCKING APOSTROPHE

it's - a contraction of "it is", as in 'it's fucking simple', A FUCKING APOSTROPHE

He never even went down the read/read/red road, not to mention lead/lead/led. Or why chose does not rhyme with lose but choose (sort of) rhymes with loose. Sad, acutally.

English Genius

You scored 92% Beginner, 92% Intermediate, 93% Advanced, and 86% Expert!

You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!

And that after a few red wines. Fear my vocab when sober.

I always get the "John and I" vs "John and me" stuff confused. So I tend to say "me and John". "Hanged" sounds to me like babytalk, and I didn't even know that "whomever" existed. Hard to believe I'm a genius :D

just imagine saying it as singular (ie without John involved) and that gives you the correct option

I'm not sure what this means, though . . .

 

Wish they would tell me which one(s) I missed, too.
