Inside the tunnel at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, that Bernie Marcus paid for IN FULL as a gift to the city. http://www.georgiaaquarium.org/
>>> HERE IS THE LESSON, GOOD FOR ALL!!!:
Scott Kenan OK fellas, as a published author, I'll give a grade school grammar lesson here -- see if that gets people to calling me names and demanding Bernie Marcus remove me again!!!
The way to spell offensive words so that everyone can read them but the superstitions about using them (or actual rules in some places), won't git ya like goblins in the night, is to substitute an asterisk replacing one of more letters, like sh*t, c*nt, G*d, etc. Placing a dash between a G and a D has always meant "God damn" or "God-damned".
Also, if you think "God" is anything's name, then you probably named your dog Dog. God is the word for the concept of the Almighty, and those who ACTUALLY read the Bible know God's name is actually YHWH, often written and pronounced "Yahweh" , and this is actually an acronym for something foreign-language meaning, "The great I am", or "I am that I am".
And to take a name in vain (dis it), is to put a negative after it, like, "I am a Democrat" (for the people in this thread, I mean -- most of you -- for me it would be "ignorance lover", which is not political per se).
This has been my Public Service of the day!!!
And then the comments began to roll in:
Nancy Babcock was my closest friend in Atlanta in the mid-oughts, and taught me to "GRAMMAR GROUSE". But now she lives in California.
And this just in from the woman I had a ninth grade crush on:
