    I also found it amusing to read that cuatx55 IS a fact.

    I am a scientist. What is so wrong about my english? I wrote fast between doing things at work.

    Is it tow? Toe? oh who cares, really.

    And my communication was certainly not the issue, it was the others reading for comprehnsion

    Toe. You wrote it correctly. Someone apparently has confused typos with incorrect grammar.

    Yes, leave it open.....you don't have to read any of it. When the political threads get too frustrating, off I go...life is too short.

    And Bluey, dear, post away! If you wanted someone telling you how to live your
    life, you could have stayed in your old country.

    I saw that error and it's a typo, as anyone with a brain can infer what the writer inadvertently left out. That kind of error is very easy to do when using an electronic keyboard.

    Is that a good enough clue for you?

    I see that you are purposefully taking a lighthearted poke of fun as a serious offense of a serious nature. Others saw the humor of stating that one is a fact within the context of the post by cuatx, so I will not be worried about your attempt to be offended

    Of that I am a fact!

    I object. Writing a phrase like "poke of fun as a serious offense of a serious nature" is a travesty of a mockery of a sham of grammar.

    Hadn't gone back to this thread for a bit.
    Very entertaining!

    I had become a bit worn with OT day. Miss the shine, the anticipation of wondering when it will come back. And get a bit annoyed at some of the threads - mostly with the heavy one-sidedness of certain posters. So, I almost always avoid the political stuff. I get enough confrontation IRL!

    But admit it has been helpful on those days when there is no better source than the thinkers on COTH!

    As for the experts, of course there are matters where EVERYONE is an expert - real estate, weather, food, politics, cars, and on, and on...

    But it is so true - "the more you know, the more you realize what you don't know". So I frankly give more credance to those who state their opinion/discuss the problem with this humble approach, rather than blast their opinions/credentials.

    Sometimes, true "experts", also are so involved in their own subject they haven't had the breadth of outside experience to practically apply their specialty to the real world/all situations. A few years of age can often help sort those expert opinions out.
