Lies Your English Teacher Told You

You can’t end a sentence with a preposition…

If you encounter fierce resistance from overzealous followers of the nonexistent but persistent rule, you can recast the sentence, but the result is usually awkward. I saw a funny example of recasting on a greeting card (one that unfortunately used an unnecessary preposition):

GIRL #1: Where’s your birthday party at?

GIRL #2: Never end a sentence with a preposition.

Non-Stop Flight? Depends!

When it comes to flying, I have some “issues.” Mental blocks, less than rational thought processes. But the latest cost-cutting measure announced by Irish discount airline Ryanair is something I can stand sit behind!

It was one thing to change (read: jack up) the pricing structure, which I found made perfect cents sense. Then in a drunken rant of an email Hastings told customers the price change could have been handled better and by the way, the convenience of having one site to stream movies online and rent DVDs from was splitting up, because a few people still didn’t completely hate Netflix, yet.

Even Fairies are Facing Budget Cuts

The Tooth Fairy Is Cutting Back — Daily Intel.

It seems that not even the Tooth Fairy is immune from the recession and budget cuts. In 2010, on average, the Tooth Fairy left $3.00 for each tooth collected. A year later, said fairy is leaving a mere $2.60.

WOW! Times have changed. I was lucky to get a dollar growing up in the 80s.

From the motion picture Tooth Fairy, Dwayne Johnson, Stephen Merchant and Julie Andrews.
