i think you might mean "dentistry is rainbows"
i think i might mean that too. fixed.
And also "repetitive", not "repetative."As a grammar point, semicolons connect independent clauses, not commas. You tend to put the latter in when it really should be the former.(I'm a grammar asshole!)I'm glad you rewrote that sentence, though, because I almost did miss how terrible it was.
Oh, and "FIND A SENTENCE ALREADY" pretty much sums the whole thing, and made me laugh really hard. :)
5 more pages of that? Good heavens...what has our university come to?
I'm not even sure I truly appreciated this paper in its full, horrible glory. I kind of got caught up in the "fetus to adult" analogy. Dentristry...fetus...dentristry...fetus...I CAN'T MAKE THE CONNECTION!!I must go and discuss this with my collogues...
It was obviously a draft, but woooah.
wait wait wait dana, I'm connecting independent clauses with commas? seriously? geez I hope not. Author was certainly doing it all over the place though.I feel like I should turn autocorrect off my OpenOffice Writer because it always changes words like "repetative" to their correct spelling and I never actually notice that it's done it. Or a beep or something. Bad habit to get into. Especially when you run a blog like this. Shoot, I did that the other day when i wrote the exact same thing.
The only things that grow from fetuses (feti?) to adults should be some sort of animals. MAYBE plants. MAYBE. That is one of the funniest things I've ever read.
I don't think anyone could have handled five more pages. i was skimming by that point as it was...
Fetuses is the plural, unless you're from the fifties. Then it's foeti. For the record, the term fetus can only be applied to the developing embryo of animals who give birth to live young. Um, so, apply that to dentistry as you will.
I'm starting to wonder if there is some sort of technique here; and if there isn't, there should be. If I was a horrible writer (i.e. if I wrote like most of the authors of these papers and realized it...), I would purposely leave papers behind, just in hopes that I would get feedback on my paper from a group of people who care for nothing but to find the errors of my writing.(and I don't mean that in a off-handed way of saying you are rude. Rather, I think your findings and comments are wonderful and overwhelming all at once, because I don't know how some people can even write rough drafts that bad.)
i think this might be a joke, purposely left behind for you to find. i mean come ON.
btw, i learned somewhere that dentists have the highest suicide rate of all professionals. probably because nobody likes bloody gums. :D
My one question about dentists is: how come they don't all have great teeth? You'd think the assistants would all be like cleaning each other's teeth on their lunch breaks every day.and now, another off-topic comment:Michael: where were you?Dwight: at the dentist.Michael: what's his name?Dwight: ... Crentist?By the way, GREAT FIND!
props for the Office reference!
this is the best thing i've read all weekend. i love dentists!!!!! and puppies!
