I've decided it is hard work trying to avoid giving offense. So this thread is for anyone who wants to take offense at something Please feel free to take offense at any of the posts herein so other threads can continue without being detailed by anyone's sensitivities.

Give offense, take offense ...
did you mean
"de-railed" rather than 'detailed' ?

Anyway, funny you should ask.

Robert Carlyle, who has relocated to Vancouver
in the past ten years,
where it is easier for him to find work than in the UK,
got coaxed into voicing an opinion in a recent interview.
And he often ends up, in the press, with the worst of it,
just for being blunt.

The interviewer said "what about Brexit"
and Carlyle wished to make the point that
some friends of his, "back home,"
had seen their families torn apart by conflicting positions on Brexit,
and he found it very sad.

I think, anyway, that was what was important to Carlyle.
But because he blurted out that Brexit is "a f*****g disaster"
the press jumped all over him for his
"hot-tempered," "foul-mouthed" "outburst."

sometimes, you can't win for losing.

Offence with a c is a noun. As in "it is an offence". Offense with an s is a verb as in giving or taking offense. Same with advice and advise. At least it was when I was a lad.

And, yes, I did mean derailed. Want to make something of it? :-)

No offense, DTG, but you are no grammarion. Your posting was inaccurate and obtuse. you don't know what a verb is, apparently. Moreover, I have not read of a military launching an offencive.

From Grammarly:


    Offence and offense are both correct.

    Offence is the spelling more commonly used outside of the United States.

    Offense is the spelling more commonly used in the United States.

Feel free to give or take offence or offense!

Sounds like a good time to reiterate the golden rules of English usage, so here goes:

Verbs HAS to agree with their subjects.

Never use a preposition to end a sentence with. Winston Churchill, corrected on this error once, responded to the young man who corrected him by saying "Young man, that is the kind of impudence up with which I will not put!

And don't start a sentence with a conjunction.

It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.

Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat.)

Also, always avoid annoying alliteration.

Be more or less specific.

Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.

Also too, never, ever use repetitive redundancies endlessly over and over again.

No sentence fragments.

Contractions aren't always necessary and shouldn't be used to excess so don't.

Foreign words and phrases are not always apropos.

Do not be redundant; do not use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous and can be excessive.

All generalizations are bad.

Comparisons are as bad as cliches.

Don't use no double negatives.

Avoid excessive use of ampersands & abbrevs., etc.

One-word sentences? Eliminate.

Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake (Unless they are as good as gold).

The passive voice is to be ignored.

Eliminate commas, that are, not necessary. Parenthetical words, however, should be enclosed in commas.

Never use a big word when substituting a diminutive one would suffice.

Don't overuse exclamation points!!!

Use words correctly, irregardless of how others use them.

Understatement is always the absolute best way to put forth earth-shaking ideas.

Use the apostrophe in it's proper place and omit it when its not needed and use it correctly with words' that show possession.

Don't use too many quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "I hate quotations.. Tell me what you know."

If you've heard it once, you've heard it a billion times: Resist hyperbole; not one writer in a million can use it correctly. Besides, hyperbole is always overdone, anyway.

Puns are for children, not groan readers.

Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.

Even IF a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.

Who needs rhetorical questions? However, what if there were no rhetorical questions?

Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.

Avoid "buzz-words"; such integrated transitional scenarios complicate simplistic matters.

People don't spell "a lot" correctly alot of the time.

Each person should use their possessive pronouns correctly.

All grammar and spelling rules have exceptions (with a few exceptions)....Morgan's Law.

Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

The dash - a sometimes useful punctuation mark - can often be overused - even though it's a helpful tool some of the time.

Proofread carefully to make sure you don't repeat repeat any words.

In writing, it's important to remember that dangling sentences.

I find the entire subject of racism should be called tribalism. Even native American Algonquins were immigrants. Everyone calling each other racists or not is so last century, fugetaboutit.

We know better now that we don't know who the 'originals' were, except for 3 handfulls from the African continent and a few pockets of similar homo species around the globe.

Racism is a delusion and should be delegated to the trash heap of history. Us and them is tribalism which is similar but does not legitimize the xeno-fear as the word racism has.

Meanwhile by carrying on the racist spat, people perpetualize racism in a perverse time honored pattern. ptooey

You are ALL TRIBALISTS but only the right wing are the vestigal racists. Nazis were the best racists. They hated everyone.

Hey Tiger Balls, its Pecker. Saw your Tweet about Trump. Man it was like you pistol whipped a blind kid. When the herd loses its way the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray. But Dude that was A real HARSHMALLOW right between the hockey sticks.

Its good that you guys have been through enough crap that unimportant egos have no need to take offensiveness personally.
Its an important measure of wisdom, unless preachy crap like this is offensive enough to gag a goat.

There just isn't enough people taking offense nowadays.

Our new kitchen is nearly finished after about 10 days of madness.

I'm sure someone could take offense at that if they try hard enough. Go on. You know you want to :-)

At the risk of being wierdly smeared, sued and screwed, the lewd orange one is also known as 'He who should not be insulted'.

How shall we not insult you master? Shall we not mention your immature stupidity? Your vengence when bribes are not paid?
Your actions when called before justice? Oh how shall we ignore your short comings as a human being, oh great Master?

At the risk of being wierdly smeared, sued and screwed, the lewd orange dude is also known as 'He who shall be obeyed'.

Thou shalt not insult him with facts.
Thou shalt not insult him with truth.
Thou shalt not offend him with reason
Thou shalt not tender history but his own
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's truth
Thou shalt not take any dictator before me
Thou shalt not honor anyone but my children
Thou shalt not covet any golden towers but mine
Thou shalt not golf at any golf courses but mine
Thou shalt see that everything is mine, this land is my land

I am offended by this thread because - although its intention is to offend me - it does not offend me!

Thus, this thread at the same time offends me and does not offend me / it should vanish in a cloud of logic ...

Glad to hear it Andreas :-) We have moved from Salford now to the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and the Tour de Yorkshire passes our front door sometimes so we now see a lot of cycling. If you ever pass this way pop in. You will be more than welcome.

Then there is Baum, a smart alec AI smart bomb that decided to arm itself and countdown to the dismay of a spaceship crew in the movie Dark Star.
The debate with Baum, programed by humans, is a cult classic.
Baum could kick Norman's ass.

There is a computer programmed by, I think, the Chirpsithra (who get drunk on electric shocks), to acquire all knowledge, but when it does instead of telling them it just shut down. Why keep working if you ken all...

The Philosophy of Logic is the best philosophy
One simple bit of logic, makes college life sublime
Now instead of study, we have leisure time.

Because ..
The more you study, the more you know,
The more you know, the more you forget,
The more you forget, the less you know,
So Why Study?

The less you study, the less you know,
The less you know, the less you forget,
The less you forget, the more you know,
So Why ..., why, why study?


For computing the more you compute
the more data you have to become searchable
the more you search the less you have time to compute
So why compute


In the original lyric Bill D found 2 lines that were internally illogical
