Are you happy you're not from Africa ?

And lived near to very scary, hungry lions.

    I’m more concerned about the snakes there than the lions.

    I have a heart condition. The meds neutralize my emotions.

    Do you know ANYTHING about Africa?  The lions are not running around in cities.  The only thing terrifying and deadly about Africa is many of their government leaders are murdering killers who would sooner run a machete through you as to look at you.

    That is what is scary.  Lions can be shot.  Governments run by evil despots cannot.  

    No lion could or ever would do this.

    Africa is a huge place.  Lions are not everywhere.  I like living where I live now ... the worst we have is an occasional bear or coyote.

      I just want to live in a world where they know not to put a space before a question mark.

  • I had once discussed this point with my father and mother, about the space before a question mark or an exclamation mark. He told me it's the natural tendency while writing to insert a space. She told me her typing class instructor of years ago had taught her to insert the space. She had also learnt to insert two spaces after a full-stop (or period in America). I personally feel that, contrary to modern practice, a space before the exclamation mark makes it more visible. A space before the question mark isn't necessary.

    I know that the rule about two spaces after a period was due to the limitations of typewriters and made the text look better. Now with computers, the convention is to put only one space between sentences. I assume the space before the question mark has a similar history; I was never taught to do that.

  • I agree fully. In fact the book on Word which I used to teach myself specifically mentioned about the earlier two-spaces practice and how it had now been discontinued.

    Her grammar is better than mine. I am a retired grammar Nazi...except for you and Stu. You are still fair game, as am I.

    I think if you trace our roots back far enough you'll find that genetically we all originate from Africa.

    I bless the rains there ...



    You can't scare me with African wildlife - our land is crawling with deadly snakes and funnel web spiders, the rivers are filled with crocodiles, the skies with magpies and the oceans are teeming with jellyfish, stonefish, blue ringed octopi and great white sharks ...
