as one very famous person who said this statement .. people who belittle other people really are by belittleing themself in the long run .. for they feel that they are showing the rest of the world how smart they really are for you start out pointing other people mistake then remember it can come back and bite you in the ----- .. so throw a stone at the house and remember a boulder might come crashing back down onto the house you bult..

This thread contains a fantastic amount of epic.
I love the fact that every 3rd or 4th poster keeps trying to get us back on track
I've seen 2 iPads in the wild, once on my flight back home and another while I was waiting for a drink in a Starbucks. Seeing that this was the end of June in Canada, the iPad was brand new here and it was EXTRA odd to see it out and about.
I'm guessing the person who had it was trying to be a little extra "Ooh, look at me. I'm in Starbucks and I have an iPad!"
Oh, and I cannot forget a supervisor that works in the same office I do that purchased one. She was 3/4 of the way to get one and her seeing mine just pushed her over the edge. So that's 3. 4 if you count my brother-in-law that has one, even though I've not yet had a chance to see him with it.
As for grammar/spelling/etc...
How far should we ignore the correction of the butchered English language?
I can appreciate a few things. A misspelling here or there. A missplaced to or your instead of too or you're. And if you are ESL, or maybe are 80 yrs old and typing is a struggle for you, then by all means, you're doing your best to make it work. Same with a learning disability.
But for an average, Gen X, Y, Z person, there is no excuse for mistakes I've seen made that even a grade 3 student would shake their head at.
It's not nice to throw stones in glass houses, but if we continue to NEVER correct people, we're going to end up like the people in Idiocracy.
I'd prefer to have myself corrected from time to time when it's a massive screw up than to just be ignored with a "Oh, I don't want to offend."
This damn world is too freakin' PC and we need to start realizing that we're going to end up mindless and stupid if we are too afraid to tell people what they're doing is wrong.
