Just a little education for those of you who may be a little confused, whether or not you are aware of it. :smoke:

Who's: A contraction of 'who is'
Ex. Who's a grammar nazi?

Whose: A possessive form of whom.
Ex: Whose fault was it I became a grammar nazi?

A sentence using both: Who's sure whose briefcase it is?

It's similar to their vs. they're, and its vs. it's respectively.

Knowledge is power.

After spending so much time in Whoville, 'whose' does not seem like a real word any more. :hippie:

Who's sure that this Indiana Hoosiers basketball program is really his? It's not his? Then it's whose-yours?


Who's sure=Hoosier
Hoosiers=Who's sure (nearly)
and finally, whose-yours is a play on Hoosiers.

You have no idea how badly I wish I could teach people their own language when they should already be proficient in it.

So. Fucking. Badly.

Lol. I bet everyone is double checking their post before submitting. No one would want to get schooled by Tony.

Agree totally.

It's frustrating because I often have to read something several times before it makes any sense. Back up, re-read, WTF? :mad: Sometimes I just give up and move on.

Another thing: I don't give a shit how intelligent someone may actually be, if they're barely literate THEY APPEAR TO BE STUPID.

It is also slightly annoying when people mix up whether/weather.

I have this one friend who is brilliant, I have the best discussions with him. He's like a fucking sponge. But he is AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL at spelling, punctuation, and grammar in general. It's nearly impossible to follow what he's saying. I'm talking 2nd grader level.

I asked him once if he wanted help with it. He said no, he would learn it in his own time. "Plus, half of it I do on purpose just to annoy people."

Accept vs. Except.
They are two different words and are not interchangeable.
