if IAB was a village of 100 people: able to use correct grammar in a submitted post: 1% can, 99% haven't

@Sonsglow
It's correct, though.

The most annoying part of this, for me, is the really odd use of "haven't."

I was expecting much worse than that. I read this same comparison 10 years ago and it was a lot more dire.

Snopes already did a fact check and most of this isn't accurate.

WHO CARES? If the world were a salad there would be more lettuce than veggies! Shut up with your stupid comparisons.

No way are there only 500 Million people who have computers. Maybe 10 years ago.

If the world was a village of 100 people, music would die a dreadful, agonising death!

The computer one really surprised me...so much so I'm not entirely certain I believe it lol. But I suppose it's possible. Actually they probably mean "own" one not "Have easy access to." As in a family computer.

OK! I'll stop now!

Read Beowulf Online
Lots of versions are available, modernized ones are much easier to understand... notes about historical relevance are a must!

A search for "Grendel cute" images brings up very little.
This one's cute though:



Not exactly sure how it's "Grendel" or Beowulf related however...

@MeGrendel: I made the error of reading "Grendel" first and didn't know WTF was going on! Then I read Beowulf and it made a lot of sense.

As for this "chart":
If 13 people live in North America...
And half of North Americans have college degrees...
Why does only 1 person in the whole world have a degree???
(@paperduck: You are certainly correct!)

Also: Adding Europe & North America together: Wouldn't more than 7 people have a computer?

@ MeGrendel: LOL at "cute monster."

Well, I'm sure with your trained graphic eye, you'll find something good. In all seriousness, I find it interesting how much someone's avatar affects my reading of their posts. For example, I find myself reading CrakrJak's posts much more sympathetically since he recently changed his avatar, the previous version being, as he himself described it, "ominous."

Also, if the world were a village of 100 people, all of these issues would be so much more easily solved.

@5Cats.

Finally, someone who gets Grendel.

@Squrlz4Sale

Yeah, the avatar is missleading. Didn't mean it to be. I've always been a fan of Beowulf, always felt sorry for Grendel.

I really like'd Grendel's side of teh story, too, as told by John Gardner.




I'll put some thoughts into a new avatar. Maybe a cute monster?

@Squrlz4: Grendel is a tragic character! One of the greatest of all time! He's not a "villain" eh?
But he was big & scary! And very, very angry too. Since his mother was a dragon, and his father a human? He looks like that.

Spoiler: But he had every right to be angry! And Beowulf accidentally supports the wrong (evil) side in the fight.

Wow, I own computers that I don't even use anymore. I once gave a friend a 'brand new in the box' laptop that I won in a drawing. I feel like... I don't know, like I'm a 1%-er or something!

Now excuse me, my butler has informed me that the helicopter is waiting to take me to my yacht.
