Re: Gramatical Hint

Here's one that bothers me.


Loser - someone who loses frequently.

Looser - to be less than tight.

I never claimed to be a good speller, and I'm too lazy to use the spell check.

Ya, 'Loser' should realy be spelled with a 'Z'.
First, because that's how you pronounce it and secondly because those who use a 'Z' instead of 'S' are one.

Re: Gramatical Hint

I know that both are technically acceptable, but the uses of 'ensure' and 'insure' bother me. You should write your account number on your check when making a payment to 'ensure' that you will be properly credited. You 'insure' your home, car, bike, boat, etc.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?
