A gigantic DUH.
Posting that the first time I asked the question would have been much easier.
Though not as much fun. The fucking juice, baby.
No, it's were, because he's talking about something hypothetically. It's called the subjunctive tense. Pretty awesome that an Indian dude speaks better English than you.
I just think it's fucking stupid that perfectly healthy people ruin all that by smoking... It's just stupid.
Hey I know that sound....... OMG ITS THE OFFENSE BEEPER WTFF BRO
Most people in foreign nations who have learned English as a second language learned the proper way. I didn't, apparently, but English is my first language.
That still doesn't seem right. It still seems as though he's missing a word or two in that sentence.
Fuck the subjunctive tense.
Uhhh, no I'm pretty sure that guy's sentence was ungrammatical. I don't think he used the subjunctive properly. By the way, the subjunctive is a mood, not a tense.
...Shit, I was hoping no one would notice that. I saw that on Wikipedia right after posting.
I still think Cryptal's sentence was grammatical. Please explain why you think it isn't.
I'm really too lazy to think of why it sounds wrong to me. It just sounds wrong, and I use the subjunctive all the time. I don't know, maybe the sentence is fine.
Damn straight it is.
Someone wish me luck.
Trying to quit.
I'm going on 2 days without a smoke. The trick is chewing gum because it decreases the urge and keeps you preoccupied. Tomorrow is Friday...and I usually drink a Shitton on Fridays so that is going to be the ultimate test to see if I can withdraw from smoking.
Good luck dude. Willpower is Metal.
Thanks, I only smoke 3 cigs a day anyway but my allergies are so bad lately. Quitting will help them year round.
I guarantee this sentence is worded incorrectly.
Try guaranteeing it with an explanation.
Well that's the problem, isn't it.
