Thread: Tsk Tsk Nikon Sg.

  1. #1

    Default Tsk Tsk Nikon Sg.

    Has the Standard of English in Singapore taken a tumble recently?
    Even major advertisments are sporting simple mistakes.

    Has anyone seen the Nikon D50 advert on the side of the bus, cant remember exactly what it says, but it has the most obvious gramatical error of the century!

    Edit: The link just loaded, haha, thats the one!!!! Brilliant, makes me laugh everytime.

    Nope, you are. Nobody can beat you at being weird.

    Talk about being old, I'm sure nobody, can win you here.

    Look in the mirror, and you'll have your answer

    Pathetic would be a better word to describe your answer after you've looked into the mirror.

    I'm not over 40 and balding like you old man.

    The word "redescribe" doesn't exist in the English dictionary. You are exactly the kind of person that makes simple mistakes like those in the Nikon ad. Hence the point of my thread.
    Now you have your answer.

    You seem to know a lot about Lady-boys eh? You patronise them a lot do you?
    Being 40 and balding, I suppose that is all you can get.

    Ok, guys, seriously, chill out. Tetrode, we all know you have a decent point to make with your thread, there is no need to stoop to _espn_'s level.

    Now, back on topic.

    Ive noticed that these silly errors are appearing more often now, maybe the world is just moving faster and faster and timescale is non exisitant, but then, its still not an excuse for these types of errors, especially from a TNC like Nikon.

    Noone can ever stoop to his level or ever want to.

    Neither am I over 40 and getting senile like you, old man.

    My typos, grammers and vocabs are on purpose, it delights me to see somebody gets irked up all over it. Ah... it makes my days.

    Since you believe your engrish is so good, go teach and you can be a engrish language fan boy for all I care.

    I have my answer now, thanks to your explanation, King of Weird.

    Nope, seeing you post makes me feel that you exhibit total behaviour similar to them. Don't worry I respect them still, they're after all humans, but I can't say the same for you.

    I think you're overly mistaken about me being 40, is it me or is it your senile brain that makes you unable to accept the fact that I'm younger than that?

    I believe it's the latter. Been proven lotsa times.

    Woah! Now look who's talking with all that personal attack and below-the-belt shots. Pots calling the kettle black now.

    Amazing. Seriously, you never fail to amaze me with your ecentricities.
