The downward spiral continues

Post by Vic Doucette » Sun Apr 01, 2018 2:49 pm

I just saw a WXYZ story about a girl involved in the "Make a Wish" program getting a chance to meet some Red Wngs. Justin Rose referred to her as having a "congenial heart condition".

Lou Perry,that's a seventh-grade AMERICAN reading comprehension level,which is about a third-grade Canadian reading comprehension level. (Mine is a first-year post-graduate university student level.) Explains your having your current President!!!!!)
It's been my experience that people who brag about how educated they are generally are stupid as dirt.
Given your constant butchering of the english language with constant punctuation and grammatical errors, you might want to keep your mouth shut about American education sport.

LOL, the Dunning–Kruger Effect, where the dim perceive themselves as geniuses. It's easy to spot because those experiencing it will generally tell you how smart they are. I see it frequently in other areas of this board as well.

Neither link is correct, unless you meant to show us an Andy Williams or Rick Astley video.

Heh, I think that was the point of the April Fool's post. The board was Rick-rolled.

Vic,you wouldn't know "adequacy" if it bit you in your likely bulbous a**!!!!!
You wouldn't know proper punctuation if it pissed all over you.

As a lad,I could hear not just GREAT voices,but excellent grammar on the radio and view it on TV.I believe Michiganders are paying for the consolidation of media outlets,which results in lower pay as veteran newspeople are released and younger and often less-talented replacements work for peanuts compared to their elders.

LOL! Maybe he was reading my "what-if" thread about if channel 9 had flipped network affiliations back in 1994! :lol
