I would like to point out...

That you have failed to provide correct grammar on the description of this place.


Description wrote:

General discussions about life, the universe, anything.

For the list, you must include the word 'and' before anything and remove that comma. Like so;

Correction wrote:

General discussions about life, the universe and anything.

Also, if you're going for the title of the book, it's "Life, The Universe and Everything", the third book in the popular series "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe" by Douglas Adams.

On a final, picky note, the word is Caf, not Cafe.

Yours pickingly,
Zach.

Re: I would like to point out...

It's actually the third book in the popular series "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams.

Here's a question. After reading that correction, what did you think?

Probably not "Wow, mathsyperson must be a very intelligent being far superior to myself to know that."
"Wow, what an annoying and pointless post," is most probably closer to what you were thinking.

The moral of this is that correcting people for the sake of it is not clever or helpful, it is pointless and annoying.

To conclude, stop it!

Re: I would like to point out...

Possibly hard for you to understand, but you didn't correct anything, as I made no mistakes.

After that poor attempt at a correction, I think you have the sophistication of a pea.

To conclude, don't try to be intelligent, you fail.

Re: I would like to point out...

I don't want this to degenerate into a random pointless insulting match, so this will be my last post on the subject.
Zach will undoubtly want the last word, and that's fine by me. (Although by correcting me, he completely missed the point of my post anyway.)

To clarify, Douglas Adams wrote "A Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy", a character called Ford Prefect in said book was researching for a book called "A Hitchhiker's guide to the universe."

Also, if I have the sophistication of a pea, then it must be the one that the princess slept with.

I'll shut up now and go off to help others less able than myself, rather than insult people who I perceive to be less intelligent than myself. Bye!

Re: I would like to point out...

Just a provisional title BTW.

When things get rolling here we can come up with a better description, title, anything.

Re: I would like to point out...

I see my fault in the title of the book, especially in a book or series that I, myself, have not been so inclined to yet fully read. I;ve infact only read, currently, "Life, The Universe and Everything.", so, if you'll excuse that terminology mistake, you'll find the rest of my post is perfectly acceptable and 'mathsyperson' is trying to be clever for his own good.

Yet, you still find it necessary to insult yourself? Do you find yourself smarter than you infact are? Are you so arrogant you find your own intelligence to be that of the infinity concept? Is that it? Do you, do you really?

No, I didn't think so.

Yes. Zach hopes Fester ate the photos, thinking they were candy. It's possible. I will try my best to get hold of them.
