    I can just about handle Gawain or the Canterbury Tales, but that stuff's
    a bit too obscure. :)

    Like "it's", for example.


    Bill Clinton agreed Monday to help Hillary
    campaign in Iowa. He's had a lot of success
    there before. This time his task is to warn
    Iowans about the dangers of the John Edwards
    health care plan and not about the presence
    of a pool table in their community.

    I was quite impressed with the Lumix FZ20 that a college purchased
    before he went on a world trip.
    As far as I'm aware, the "Leica" version of this camera (and other
    Panasonic digicams) is identical besides some cosmetic differences and
    (of course) the (coveted) red badge on the front.
    I wholeheartedly agree, most of the Lumix range look quite useful and
    I didn't buy one because I'd just bought Pentax ist-DS, to use my
    K-mount lenses on.
    Not because I didn't like it (or wasn't impressed), but because buying
    (yet) another digicam would mean that it would probably just mostly sit
    on a shelf, rather than being used (to take pictures) as it should be.

    I had bad vowel troubles when I was young. I think it was my
    vowels anyway...

    Ok then, since you moved the goalposts... why isn't the
    "Marine Corps" called the "Marine Corpse"?

    Is either spelling acceptable? I mean who cares whether
    something is misspelled, nobody dies... Oops.

    Ok, so the wordplay was a little dark and in bad taste but
    it proves a point. It often *does* matter that words are
    spelled correcly. Spelling counts.

    Diarrhoea can cause vowel problems.
    Hehe. :)
    Jolly good.
    I always thought integers count.

    Butt, joking a side, your rite of coarse.

    Just for kicks, I ran your last line (a good one, by the way) through
    Babelfish, translating it from English to French
    and then back to English, with this result:

    Join, while joking a side, your rite of crude.

    When I entered you response with correct spelling, I got the follwing:

    But, juking on side, you are right, naturally.

    Other than "joking aside", it gave much better results.

    I rest our cases.

    It is NOT used on plurals.

    "It's" is a contraction. It is short for "it is". It's not a way to
    ascribe a property to some "it". Yes, I know that this would make sense
    given that the general rule for forming a possessive is to tack on "'s":
    fool's errand, brewer's yeast, horse's ass. "It's" is an exception to
    this rule, and I honestly apologize on behalf of the infuriating English
    language. I didn't invent this stupid rule, but it's hardwired into my
    brain like gender of nouns to French speakers.

    It's a small world, after all. It's a small world, after all. It's
    a small world, after all. It's a small world, after all.
    You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around, that's what
    it's all about.

    "Its" is a possessive pronoun. Its interpretation is something like
    "that which belongs to it", where "it" stands for some previously
    defined object. In the previous sentence, the object being referred to
    is the word "its", and the thing that belongs to it is its interpretation.

    He left it dead, and with its head he went galumphing back
    Love rears its ugly head.

    The noise issue seems to be a CONTINUOUS point of contention. Great
    lens, sub par pictures.I have the FZ30 and I speak from personal use.

    If you look at the list of pros and cons above you'll notice that the
    pros are mostly concerned with the camera and the cons are mostly
    concerned with the image, or more specifically the effect of noise and
    Venus III noise reduction. This sums up the FZ50 perfectly; a fantastic
    camera with a less than stellar sensor / processor, and way too many pixels.

    And so what we have is a camera that stretches its sensor to almost
    breaking point and compensates for the lack of sensitivity in anything
    but the brightest conditions by using excessive noise reduction. The
    FZ50 is an excellent 5 or 6MP camera, but a rather less impressive 10MP

  10. Er, yes, thanks, all correct. However, I am sure the previous posters
    were responding t.i.c. to a similar post of mine, which in turn, yada,

    I think maybe you need to recalibrate your irony meter.
