"Their house, where they're going, is over there."
i hate to be a dippity downer, but cant the speller ask for the definition as well?
"Can I ask for the definition please?" "No. Fuck you kid. Spell the damn word."
They had a joke like this on the Simpsons, with the word "whether/weather"
I can't tell whether the weather will be good or bad.
This was on an episode of the Simpsons -
"Can you use it in a sentence please?"
"I wonder whether the weather will be fine today"
You made my day get better. :] This is hilarious.
Back in first grade, we had a spelling test with the word eye in it. When we asked the teacher to put it in a sentence she replied with, "I see with my eye." She was completely serious. This sounds stupid to me now but our first grade brains weren't that smart.
see doesn't even sound like eye?
I sounds like eye.
"I see with my eye."
Yes, but how would you think that eye and I would be interchangeable in that sentence? Even a preschooler knows better than that. Unless you're a moron and think the teacher honestly meant "Eye see with my I"
Bunch of dummies on this site apparently.
No...you're the dummy. They asked her to use the word in a sentence. She used two words that sound the same. They didn't know which one she wanted them to spell.
It's not that hard to tell. I get what you're saying but seriously just because two words sound the same doesn't mean that you can't tell them apart. Unless you think saying "Where are the clothes you are going to wear" Could possibly mean "Wear are the clothes you are going to where?"
See how fucking stupid you sound when (even as a first grader), you don't realize that? I got that shit long before I started school.
Wow. I don't think you understand. The kids wanted to know what the word they were supposed to spell was. The word was eye. The teacher said I and eye in her sentence. Therefore, the kids did not know whether to write I or eye for the answer. They weren't confused about the sentence structure, but rather the word being defined through context clues. So please don't try to prove me wrong with your profanity when you don't even know what you're arguing about.
I do understand what you're saying. I'm just saying by hearing that fucking sentence you can tell whether or not she meant "eye" or "I" regardless of how they sound without floundering around going "Holy fuck! What does she mean OMG eye and I sound the same!!! I don't care what your stupid first grade class though, the word defined by the context clues is EASY to understand for even a 2 year old! My nephew understands these things and he's 3!!! Because why would a teacher want you to spell "I" What kind of teacher wants you to spell that?? And more importantly I think, how dumb was your class for your teacher to think that "eye" was a hard word. LOL
And I can use profanity whenever I fucking want you stupid cunt thank you very much :)
Have fun being stupid, it's going to be cool to hire you to work as the janitor for my company in the near future.
First of all, it wasn't my class.
Secondly, eye is a difficult word for first graders.
Thirdly, the point is that the words sound the same...and not sentence structure, once again.
Also, I am a sophomore in an AP English class, and we just had the word "February" on OUR spelling test to put an emphasis on capitalization. I think that's important for first graders as well. Nice try, though. It was cool to see you finally understand the post, even though I had to explain it to you a few times.
Finally, I doubt you will ever own a company, judging by the intelligence of your post. However, I would be honored to be your janitor if you ever needed one. In the words of Bill Gates: "Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping -- they called it opportunity."
You are a fucktard.
I guess I'll take your well constructed comeback as an admittance that you were wrong.
I was agreeing with you.
That was in reply to the anon that disagreed.
Well good for you that you're apparantly a master speller, but it seems you have some problems with comprehension.
Jeez, calm the fuck down.
English isn't my native language. We only started learning it in school during the first grade, so for young kinds just starting to learn a new language, 'eye' was a hard word. Plus, our spelling words were the same as our vocabulary words. We were probably learning about different body parts back then or whatever. Don't get your panties in a bunch.
And thank you Inmate_24601 for trying to explain what I meant even though Anon was being ridiculously rude.
Sorry seriously! Haha I thought you were anon >.<
And to allykat-just trying to be a good amiriter!
(Inmate_24601):I'd say that it was a job well done.
is or was? hahaha
Haha fail. I meant "it was"
But you don't know i they are talking about the first threw or the second through.
Yes. But do you understand how a spelling bee works? The speller would still not know which of the two words they were supposed to spell.
I think you're missing something here . . .
Hahaha yeah. That guy got a little defensive about his comprehension skills...or the lack thereof...
