and you started off with a lower case letter as did I. Fact of the matter is were human, humans make mistakes. Didn't know that this was an english class or else I would have took my time and tried a little harder.

Sure, but you didnt have an argument. All you did was call me retarded. Oh, and bold things, we must not forget the bolding!

My argument still stands because you have yet to argue against it. Is it hard to make yourself look stupid? Or does it just come naturally?

commas help the clarity of a sentence, capitalizing the first word of a sentence doesn't. the sentence you said, "are you stupid or retarded if you will notice I wrote this:", could be far clearer then it is.

No arguement, so there is nothing for me to argue against. Quite simple really...

By the way, here is a gramatically correct version of your sentence:

"My argument still stands because you have yet to argue against it. Is it hard to make yourself look stupid or does it just come naturally?"



The phrase "or does it just come naturally" is not a complete sentence.

Again, all you do is call me stupid, when you cant even create a proper sentence

so you admit that I was correct between the two of us. So why the hell did you have to go on an ego trip to try to outprove me when you think I was correct in the first place? Geez!

his argument was that back here, "I forgot that the best thing to do on a one lane street, freeway, intersection, etc, is to slam the breaks and swerve into another lane!", you were taking what he said, and completely negating parts of the phrases, therefor making it look like he said something that he didn't.

and you've got nothin on that so far.

ok, I can admit when I'm wrong. I'll make sure to have my english teacher go over my next post so that I don't have anymore mistakes. JK, I'll just try to be more careful next time. I'm sure newb is going to try to correct this post because he's on some ego trip.

So did he, read it again and see if you can find out what is wrong. I'm not seeing your full point of view here, because I clarified my statement in the situation that he put out with an answer that I provided.
