Apparently all language derived from the first word uttered by a caveman. Ugggh. Meaning that I have just arrived.

It was just a copy and paste from my phone. No dig at anyone. Not expecting any help from you, more so from someone who tried the strap or have knowledge about it. Should you be in that category then please share some of your knowledge. There is a thread for it though.

Would help if I had any knowledge to offer Just Say No. It was Just, the B in ITB stands for Band. So you wrote, ITB Band strap. That's all

I feel like a twat now. Lol. Will not get involved in any grammar from now on, English is my second language. Stick to what you know is the saying I believe.

Just as annoying is when people ask you to put in your PIN number

It's Friday!  I've saved up all my mental energy for incredibly important internet banter!

Did I miss anything?

Totally different Tommy. This is slang we are talking about. Slang may have it's roots but evolve and change their meaning with use. There is no wrong and right with slang. 

There is a wrong and right with apostrophes, though.

And what my pedant,is wrong with my apostrophes or lack of them? Should "it's" not have one despite me referring to the roots belonging to "it"(slang)?

24/05/2013 at 18:28

Because "it's" in the context you used it above means "it is".

The apostrophe belongs to the word "slang" not the word "it".

"The roots of the slang" = "The slang's roots".

Actually, you are both a bit right; the roots do belong to 'it', but possessive 'its' doesn't have an apostrophe, and 'it's' is an abbreviation of 'it is'. Think of it like his or her, which are possessive but don't have apostrophes.

I don't mind a bit of panantry now and again about grammar. I've certainly never used 60's and 70's again since I was mugged on the way home by PhilPub. Never again.

You're welcome. I very politely didn't say anything about your commas.

Meanwhile, I hope Joseph is all ready for his parkrun debut tomorrow.

We can't all be German ladies of letters. C'mon Jo. I'm defo going to be trying my hardest. Are you doing Colwick literatin? 

24/05/2013 at 20:36

No, not this week. I am doing a 5 mile race on Wednesday, and a more experienced runner, perhaps wearing a yellow vest, very tactfully pointed out to me that doing two races in four days was a recipe for mediocrity.

24/05/2013 at 21:01

Excellent...I'm currently aspiring to mediocrity - doing Colwick in the morning and the 5 miler on Wednesday should serve me well!

 

 

24/05/2013 at 21:06

Oops... he was a lot more tactful than me, clearly, and didn't use the word 'mediocrity' either. BBB, I'm sure you recover much faster than me! 

24/05/2013 at 21:11

No need for apology, I was only half joking about mediocrity! Will be an interesting test of how the legs handle race pace twice within a few days. Should give me an indication of how hard I might be able to go at the Grand Prix and 4 races in 10 days next month.
