It's Ridiculously rediculous, in a rediculas sort of way.

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    I'm sorry. I may be overreacting, but every time someone Spells it rediculous or rediculas, I just want to throw my PC across the room. This losing two games in a row has really fucked up my tolerance for letting things like this go by. Maybe after a win this week, I will be able to calm down a bit, and let something as rediculous(sp?) as this roll off my back.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    You know what drives me nuts? Confusion of possessive and plural, and the improper use of apostrophes.

    We don't cheer for the "Buckeye's", we cheer for the Buckeyes.

    "Jim Tressels" coaching staff is not trying to improve the team, but Jim Tressel's staff is working on that task. (we hope)

    So what your saying is that its remedial to state such ridiculous things as rediculous as that ?? I am just axing you ??


    p.s. HAHAHA It bugs me too but people saying axing is worst in my book. I feel like grabbing them by the shirt and saying ASKING, A-S-K-I-N-G, then my wife calmly tells me to take my Valium and too calm down cuz Deon is not coming back next year to commentate. :lol:

    No shit. Part of the problem stems from the old military use of the teletypewriter and its love for acronyms, which spilled over in the newspapers and especially the web. Since teletypewriters had only upper case letters, they had to use apostrophes to avoid confusion between the pluralization of an acronym with another singular acronym that happened to ends with an "S". For example:

    A QUANTITY OF 20 RPG'S WAS SHIPPED TO RPGS ON 13 OCT 04.

    Where "RPG'S" is the forced pluralization of RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) and "RPGS" could stand for "Regional Provision Garrison Storage" (OK, I made that up, but you get the point).

    Low-end newspapers started doing this in "all-caps" headings, and some on the web followed suit, and so others starting thinking that it was proper usage.
