# Hi everyone

renedox
Hello everyone, just wanted to stop by and say Hi.

Seems like a very nice place here, did sign up a last year but account got deleted somehow so yeah...

Anyway, chances are that I'll be starting thread asking for explinations on the many aspects of Physics that I do not understand.

Been interested in Physics for a number of years not and just this year took an interest in Calculus :)

"Hi" :D

too bad you didn't get an interest in either typing or spelling.

That wasn't a very friendly welcome, trib...

Shut up tribdog

Yes, welcome! Care for a drink? I'll get you your first one - after that, you're on your own! Bathroom is first door on the right. Many of us can't type, spell, or put a complete sentence together in ANY readable form. A few are just downright ornery and/or cranky. But all in all, we're a pretty fun bunch of nerds.

yes and we charge for explanations... even if it's not readable...

Thanks for the welcome guys, I usually make those mistakes because half way through typing the sentence I would think of a better way to write it and not delete it all.

Can I take the drink now? :P

LOL, okay.
Alright I admit it wasn't very friendly of me. I've just got this pet peeve about spelling errors, even though I make them myself. It really is getting ridiculous. I find spelling errors all over the place. There is a sign in my post office that has three errors on it and this is from our government. I also just spent $11 on Popular Science's Space 2100 and I found an error in it. I admit that this forum isn't the place to really care about these kinds of errors, but I will say that, narrow-minded as it is, I automatically discredit the opinions and comments of someone who won't at least make the attempt to use proper grammar and spelling. Renedox, I apologize I was trying to make a joke and it came out as being cruel. Gale LOL, okay. Alright I admit it wasn't very friendly of me.

i thought your reply was pretty funny... i have a similar peeve. bad spelling i can deal with to an extent, but i can't stand poor grammer. When people say then instead of than or when people use good instead of well. (rrg, my driver's ed teacher did it so much...drive good, park good. all i could think was you idiot, use well, you need an adverb for pete's sake!)

I'll have a beer thanks :)

Yeah, I have a bit of a peeve for poor grammar and spelling mistakes but I don't take it too much of an extent.

Why? We are only human :)

asians, (yes, I'm asian) some of them when speaking to you will put an "s" at the end of a sentence or word for no apparent reason. ARGH! lol :P

Mentat: I'll post/help where I can :)

Ginger beer?

Oh, I'm new here too... though I've lurked for a while.

(And I have the unfortunate privilege of knowing renedox personally.)

Hmm...her pet peeve is bad grammar...several grammatical errors in her sentence...ah, I'll ignore 'em.

Seriously though, I have a serious problem, though slightly different from Gale's and tribdog's: I don't mind if people use bad grammar, but I almost never fail to notice it. Now, it might seem like it's not a big problem to notice all grammatical errors, if you don't say anything, but the problem is that it builds up in my mind for quite a while until I finally snap and show somebody that even most versions of the Bible have errors in them!

Welcome to the PFs, abhishek!

Did you learn of the PFs from renedox, or the other way around?

Gold Member
Your beers are waiting for you at the bar - right next to the bathroom.

photon

Hey renedox, want to buy a PF Hall Pass? These are usually quite expensive, but I can sell you one for cheap.

Courtesy of the PF mafia.

Not quite sure about that, I think we found PF by ourselves.

I was here a few years ago but account got deleted, god knows when Abhishek was here :P

*takes a sip of the nice cool beer*

Sure photon, I'll take a hall pass, does it include one of those cool stickers of a golden star on it? :P How much for one? *pulls out wallet*

*takes another sip of beer*

I visited occasionally a few years ago, too. After forgetting about this place for a while, another friend referred me again here (well, to Physics Post), and I registered but never posted. After a long absence, I rediscovered PFs a couple weeks ago and found my old account was gone too, so I registered, and here I am...

Upstanding! Welcome back! What was that you drink? Ginger beer? Or will you join renedox in a real brew?

abhishek
Fine, root beer.

Good man. (Barq's is my favorite). You'll find it next to mine at the bar.
