    THANK YOU Deeder for making a thread for this. It has become one of my pet peeves that so many people keep on loosing this and loosing that. Makes them seem like a ****** to society.

    I have seen it ALL OVER the place, it's official, America has quit teaching kids how to spell 'lose.'

    I can't help but read it as "loose" either, and it pisses me off HAHA!!

    How do I loose weight, read that and tell me you don't get angry.

    How on earth does that make me sensitive? I was pointing out that your reply to this thread was the most useless thing anyone has said... Even the guy who "loost his wallet" was more on topic than you.

    I am not Ruffian, nor her english teacher, nor her tutor. If you feel she has poor grammar and spelling wouldn't that be something you should tell her?

    Look at yourself, all pissed off because of a little comment.

    It's the general section, everything in here is pointless.

    I cant help it with my grammer, even if I triple check it, I just dont see it.

    Guess its part of the autism... but blah! Words, language just doesnt click in my head. Things dont look wrong to me. ANd its so damn frustrating at times when I try my hardest and cant get it right.

    Ah well, Im good at maths
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
