Default LOOSE vs LOSE, sorry, spelling primer

Sorry, I know, I know. I just see this EVERY TIME I am on this site.

To lose something, is to not know where it is.ex. "Don't LOSE your milk money"

You can loose something (kinda olde english but oh well) but that just means to set it free, you may still know where it is, but it is still pronounced "loose" like "My pants are too loose".

You don't loose a gallon of wort during bear absorption in your primary.(before the gnomes come)

You lose it.

Haha- you sound like Yuri now.

I'm not really a grammar nazi, but the one that gets me is "your". Your, you're, and worse, ur, are NOT interchangeable.

I'm now an old lady (grandma and all), but the other thing I can't get is textspeak. If you can't even spend the time to type out "you", and use punctuation, I can't spend the time formulating an answer to your (youre, ur) question.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I really hope that the bolded word above was a joke since you took the time to "correct" everybody's spelling/grammar on this site.

LOOK AT THIShttp://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/appa...rimary-187905/

sorry for the inside joke Matt, but you should check this thread out. EPIC.

And if you know of spontaneous beer absorption in primary without a bear to absorb it, that is new to me.

The thing that really gets my goat, and I see it all the time, is the improper use of the progressive tense.

It's not "I am wanting", it's "I want", damn it!

If this is the grammar complaint thread, how about if everyone stops using 's to pluralize words?

Hehe, I'm guessing this thread reminded you of that.

I'm far from a grammar Nazi too, but i have to admit, the lose/loose thing really bugs me.

Loose in place of lose is rediculous.
