Well if you want to take it to the next level, affect is a noun too - ask a psychiatrist. I still think most people are better off thinking that one is a noun and the other a verb, despite the obvious exceptions.
It's not effect, it's affect. One's a noun, the other's a verb. Can't believe I'm the first person on this one.
Are there any young greybeards around? Even Alistair Darling was dark from the forehead down.
Thorne - you have other weaknesses
Sample set of two (three if you count my boss). Apparently I shouldn't attempt to make mobile calls from the cupboard under the stairs as it's the one dead spot in my house. Same goes for my manager's garage.
Surely it should be "Not in your face"
It's very hard to get anything to orbit the Moon. Variations in the density of the Moon cause orbital perturbations which will ultimately cause the asteroid to crash into the Moon. Better than crashing into us, mind.
"...after all they miss letters off the end when saying maths."
No, they are missing letters from the middle of the word when they say maths.
"bi line" - fnarr.
Gulliver's lawyer (who would of drafted the original clause)
I really hope the lawyer drafts better than you do
Er, if he gave away all his money he would then be poor.
"Some critics have argued that medical records could end up in the wrong hands WHEN data mishaps and security blunders occur."
Fixed that for you.
It's called a DIY for a reason.
As we're reminiscing,I saw Sarah Bee in the letters page of Private Eye this week. Happy days...
Broadchurch was really good. That's about it really
have to return it to the dealer if your battery needs replacing?
I would have thought this would be concentrated in the Vatican rather than the US.
Faciam me tunica mea
When pointing out spelling mistakes, please proofread your own posts with extra care..
I've stayed here a few times - nice place http://www.hobbithotel.co.uk/ Are they going to be next? Maybe they were hoping nobody would mention them - sorry!
It certainly takes it out of you
As a Transgender Werewolf, wouldn't you just use a lamppost?
No, we're in England (well I am). That's how we spell the word.
That's "Nineteen" and "its themes or characters". if you're going to use the pedant icon, you need to read your post several times before clicking 'Submit'.
My son doesn't have one. Long story, but he'll always be the wild card when playing "innie or outie".
This sounds just like Andrew Lansley saying that nurses didn't like the NHS cuts because they hadn't been explained properly. We're all too stupid to go out and buy new 3D TVs, too.
Was that your two penne's worth?
Charging younger people more for insurance? isn't that age discrimination and therefore illegal too? Let's all pay £2,000 a year and be done with it.
I see you can now post death threats with impunity. Good job you didn't threaten to damage an airport or you would be in trouble.
I've never heard anyone else ever mention SINTRAN. I used to work for Norsk in the late 90s writing reports on their call management system. The technical skills I learned there became obsolete quicker than any other skillset I have acquired before or since.
Wasn't even "on" the moon, just near it. Meh.
but happy to rename the whole state to "Indianna"...
smile.co.uk (part of the Co-op bank) - no card reader, British call centre (think it's in Lancashire) and you can use Post Offices to pay money in. I've been with them over 10 years and never had an issue.
You even get change from $100,000
(Still grinning from being first with "I am Sparticle")
Will a particle come out announcing "I am Sparticle?" Or will it only spin to the far left?
What are the odds? About 1 in 10, apparently.
You put a hyphen in "full-stop", so you don't win anything.
That'll be handy. I assume they'll stop at 21 (or 20 for the women-only version).

Tells you to use WEP even though the screenshot they use has WPA as an option. First page I looked at, and the advice is bad.
