Stop Pick'n On Me!

Someone in the previous post just ridiculed my engineering background. As a proud graduate of Colorado University, this swipe at the grammatical and linguistic level of engineers is an affront to all said hard working professionals. It expresses a narrow-mindedness that borders on fanaticism. It expresses a prejudice rooted in a Western-dominated Capitalistic worldview that suppresses all that it cannot understand.

On the other hand, it sure was funny!

Wow. All that from one slam?

What can you do with my handwriting? Does it change your analysis is I was using a Dvorjak keyboard? (I wasn't btw).

I certainly wan't trying to affront all hard working engineers, just give you an easy equation to help solve the misguided confusion of possessive pronouns with contractions.

I am, however, narrow minded in a fanatical way, but my Calvinistic view of the sacraments being a true means of grace cannot be contrived to say it "supresses all that it cannot understand." Mystical union and real presence come on--give it to me every week. :0)
