At least it wasn't "permanent", or was it?
OMG! I didn't even notice the spelling error! That makes this so much more delicious!
Me too, I just saw plain irony staring at me!
It's too perfect now. This may yet be the biggest tattoo fail in the history of the internet.
Or mistakes in permanent ink.
Oh god Nixie this must be driving the grammar nazi in you crazy.
*god, Nixie, this (sorry)
Thankfully, I'll never have the issue with meeting this man. Otherwise... Yeah. That would be fun.
Let this be a lesson though; do not get words tattoo'd onto you!!
QUESTION: Aren't the commas unnecessary because it's perfectly clear that he was referring to you? I thought the double commas surrounding a name were only needed when more than one Nixie is present and he needed to differentiate? I'm about 99% positive my 11th grade English teacher taught us that.
No, you still use them for that too.
Same with "well, Grandma, I don't like broccoli soup". Essentially, the name is extra, and you actually pause when you say it, even though it's just a micro pause.
English is weird.
Yeah, I just read up on it. Apparently you can only leave out the commas if there's something else right before it in the sentence that makes it perfectly clear. For example, "His wife Eleanor suddenly decided to open her own business." is acceptable without the commas because the words "his wife" leave no question of the subject. Interesting.
But fuckyeahrage definitely needed the commas or else he'd be calling you 'God Nixie' (which is guess is actually a compliment, lol).
Yup, commas are really really important, otherwise the meaning changes entirely lol
Interestingly enough, it you swapped "Eleanor" and "his wife" around, you would need to add commas again as you're adding extra information; "Eleanor, his wife, suddenly decided to open her own business"
Without them, the sentence wouldn't flow correctly :3
Permanet. The long lasting insecticidal.
Ooo, that's gonna hurt...well, forever I guess.
THEY SHOULD MAKE "PERMANET IDIOT MARKINGS" ON IDIOTS MANDATORY.
I think it should say "based on"
I would find it amusing if the individual intended for the misspelling, and somewhat juicy if the intention included trolling Grammar Nazis.
