10/11, just didn't get the Ark one. But I'm an atheist, so I blame the test, and of course not myself :)

I wonder how many animals on the Ark were gay and caused their species died out. :shock:

Well...you got me - that's the same one I missed - and yes, I know I'm a Christian so how did I miss that? Over confident I guess?


If I recall correctly, didn't Moses have an ark too? ::D

Umm...shouldn't that be "enlighten us with your brilliance" :blush: ah screw it never mind they both mean the same thing...I forgot they synergized the definitions several years ago. illuminate up until the talk of the Illuminati only meant "to provide with light, i.e candles, light bulbs. Damn these people screwing with the dicitionary...

He goes on to say I can't form a proper sentence 1 minute after I had already edited my inital post because I missed a k in a word. He says this in a sentence that is lacking proper punctuation (last I checked to form a sentence requires punctuation) and becareful BB you are treading awfully near a personal attack, you know the ones that you are so fond of reporting.

Okaaaaay.......... a compliment is "treading awfully near a personal attack"? But you posted your 11/11 and apparently this was a test on how smart people are supposed to be, isn't it?. :huh:


Ellipses can also be used to indicate an unfinished thought or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence......


^^^ Just so you know.......

Technically as Shift's sentence contained an ellipsis...and a very extended one, I might add...and an ellipsis is in fact a form of punctuation...his sentence does contain punctuation. I will agree with you however that he made that statement prematurely before you had a chance to edit your post.

Except he starts his sentence with a conjunction and doesn't use a comma, so it has nothing to do with the ellipsis.

Correct me if I'm wrong here...and I admit it's been a while since I tutored in Language Arts...but his statement was "Yet you have trouble forming a sentence...." If i'm not mistaken, "yet" is one of those funky words that can be used with or without a comma to begin a sentence. Subject and predicate are both present, with the ellipsis taking the place of a period. That's a sentence.

You are right but as there is no preceding sentence it is a conjunction.

I went to Barney's house.
Yet there was no beer.
- doesn't need a comma

Yet, this whole topic is stupid.

"I went to Barney's house with the worst case of cotton mouth you could imagine. I scoured the refrigerator with raised expectations. He had a nice stash of vodka, yet there was no beer." The odd thing however is that if I were to use your example, my grammar teacher would shout at me that those two mini sentences need to be a part of one single sentence. I went to Barney's house, yet there was no beer. This topic is indeed stupid, but I won't remember it later anyway. Carry on.

Scrambling for an answer that fits what has already been said and is ass-covering is rewarded with an extra point. 12/11 for effort.

Ultimately its ridiculous to go off about, grammar, sentence structure or spelling on hockey fourms. Half of us are probably drunk!
