    If you’re wasted, don’t be writing on my walls.
    TRANSLATED:
    Free pot for the next wasted guy to not write here.

    I cannot understand that people with english as their native language make these mistakes. As a non english speaker I never ever make “your/you’re” or “then/than”-mistakes.. It’s just to easy.

    Um, Circa, I’d hate to bust your balls, but you just had your own fail in your post: it’s supposed to be “It’s just TOO easy”.

    Love this blog!

    This blog contains hillarity and hate! Nothing goes better together!

    @Circa, lol. your/you’re, then/than, to/too. I am a native English speaker and I screw those up all the time. It’s the easily learned ones that are more easily forgotten, in my opinion. Also, I have noticed that most ESL folks are better at that sort of thing than us natives. Probably because they have to actively try much harder to learn them than (then? lol, see?) we do/did. Plus, if it’s your native tongue then you are probably much more familiar with whatever slang you were brought up with than the textbook variety of English. I see that holding true across all languages.

    Alex, maybe you should “actively try much harder to learn” these distinctions again, cuz it really is pathetic for native English speakers to fail left and right like that. Typos are one thing, but actually not being sure if then/than, your/you’re, etc. is correct in a certain place is not something that should be accepted. If you suffer from this malady, take it upon yourself to self-educated and self-improve.

    Ah…”to self-educated” eh? I think people should stop complaining about someone else’s grammar if they can’t keep mistakes out of their complaints. It’s just too funny.

    hahah damn ..I screwed up my ‘to’ ..If i see other people make that mistake I will bitch at them😛

    But hey, English is not my own language. I’m allowed to make mistakes😛

    “paifully hard to decipher”

    This whole comment section should be posted as a fail.
