That should get you started.
Now I shall get back to the life of homework (and therefore procrastination).

Discuss.

Personally, I take it like a bear takes to honey. (I love it. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.)
I have the album.
I know the lyrics.
I sing them in school.

'Nuff said.

Pokémon Discussion / Agatha
« on: November 15, 2009, 11:37:10 am »
So, in my Ancient Greek class, we have recently learned agathos, agathe, agathon, which means good. Yet Agatha uses 'evil' Pokémon. (Poison type, Ghost type and now Dark type.)

Was GameFreak going for irony or are they that oblivious?

Oh, joy. And my school is having an Open House that I am helping out with! (I am excited.) But I am not sure that that many people will come because, well, they'll think it is one when it is twelve!

Pokémon Discussion / Well, this is.... Odd.
« on: September 13, 2009, 01:51:19 pm »
So, I was doing my Greek Homework, and lo and behold, there was a word that look suprisingly like Entei!
(It is sounded out ezEEteh.) It is spelled εζητει. So, yeah, I know. There's a Zeta in there, but still. It means 'he was seeking.' Eerie.

Computers and Technology Discussion / GameBoy. Yeah.
« on: September 06, 2009, 06:40:45 pm »
So, school has started, along with the finding of a GameBoy.

One of my friends in school was walking along when lo and behold, he found AN ACTUAL GameBoy, not Color, next to a trashcan. And guess what was in it? Tetris. Yeah, Tetris.

The GameBoy had a name written on it, and he said that he sent him a message on FaceBook. I don't think he has received a reply yet, though.

HOW LUCKY CAN YOU GET?

Pokémon Discussion / Pokemon Breeding
« on: August 22, 2009, 08:55:52 am »
Wouldn't it be cool if you could breed one Pokemon with another and get a combo? Like, I don't know, if you bred Persian with a Delcatty you would get a baby that could evolve to both, and that is the only way you could get it?

Computers and Technology Discussion / iPhone3G VS iPhone 3GS
« on: August 10, 2009, 09:03:54 pm »
So, okay. Picture a five year old kid in a room with a marshmallow. He is told that he can eat the marshmallow now, or wait ten minutes and get another marshmallow along with that marshmallow. So he can either get immediate payoff = 1m, or 10 min wait = 2m.

Okay. Now imaging that this kid is actually a teenager that is told that he can buy an iPhone3G now or can save up his money for an iPhone3GS, and that he decides that there is NO GET ANOTHER PHONE. What should he choose?

AHEM. THE SECOND IS NON-HYPOTHETICAL.

-BROCCO GUY'S GRAMMAR GUIDE-



You saw this coming.



Preliminary Grammar Notes:
Please note that every personal pronoun is capitalized, (eg. Names, cities), single 'I's are capitalized and every sentence ends in a period.



1. Apostrophes
Misuse of apostrophes is, and will always be, my biggest pet peeve. They are so often used incorrectly, especially in the case of possessive ITS. As a general rule, an apostrophe comes in place of a vowel.  (eg. It's (It is), They're (They are) and Don't (Do not)) However, when used with the letters ITS, they get a different spin.

ITS is odd in its way of having no apostrophe be possessive. When you say 'It's' you are saying it is, but if you say 'Its' you are saying that the object in question belongs to, or pertains to, 'It'. To remember this in simpler terms, if 'Her' fits logically where you want to put 'Its', you are putting the correct format. If 'It is' fits logically, you should use 'It's'.

In other cases apostrophe S is used to describe possession, whereas S at the end of a word is used for plural. (eg. Jack's Pianos, Jack having mulitple pianos.)



2. Commas
Commas are used as a breather in a sentence. If you want to add a pause to a sentence, you would use a comma. If you want to seperate two or more things, you would use a comma. (eg. 'I thank my parents, Jack and Jill.' In this you are thanking your parents and stating their names. In 'I thank my parents, Jack, and Jill' you are saying that you thank your parents, a person named Jack and a person named Jill.)

The book Eats, Shoots and Leaves makes a good point in the title by simply using excessive commas to portray verbs instead of nouns. The Panda 'eats shoots and leaves', not the Panda 'eats, shoots, and leaves.' In the former it says that the Panda eats certain foods, whereas in the second it says that the Panda walks in, eats food, shoots people and leaves.

By using excessive commas, it is hard to understand you and you could have a totally different meaning than what you intended. If you use commas correctly, you are easier to understand.



3. I Versus Me
I and me are often misused. (eg. Peter and me are going on a walk, That book belongs to Peter and I.) Those are both wrong. The easiest way to figure this out is to take away the name. 'Peter and me' becomes me and 'Peter and I' becomes I. After this it is easy to see which is which.

In general, I refers to the person performing the verb, whereas me refers to the person that the verb is happening to.

For the case of Us Versus We, just use 'we' where you could use I and 'us' for where you could use me.



4. Affect Versus Effect
This rule, like the I Versus Me rule, is easy to grasp and only takes a bit of brainspace. Affect is used as a verb, whereas effect is used as a noun. (eg. I affect the Goats, the Goats do not like the effect.) In this case, I am doing something to the Goats, and thus affecting them. They do not like the effect of what I am doing to them. Affect is a verb, effect is a noun.

(MORE TO COME.)

Computers and Technology Discussion / .PST files
« on: July 02, 2009, 12:23:28 pm »
So, yeah. .PST files are the files for Outlook in which all messages, contacts and other data are stored. My parents are switching computers but would like to keep all of this stuff intact. (From Outlook 2003 - 2007.)

So, they would also like to merge into one single user. How do I:

COMP 1 (Outlook 2003)---------COMP 2 (Outlook 2007)
PARENT A ---.pst---------------PARENT A+B
PARENT B -/

In other words, how to I merge their .pst files into one folder?

General Discussion / Dragoncave Eggs
« on: June 30, 2009, 12:02:18 pm »
So yeah, fun little website, dragcave. You get eggs and they can hatch and stuff. I can't get a link there because I'm on a DSi.

But anyway, I'm creating this thread so that people (me) can post their eggs/hatchlings for us to click.

Mine are in my signature.
