Sentences - Efs - 08-30-2014 06:18 PM

DoA are you retarded?


Sentences - Ky - 08-31-2014 03:18 AM

First of all, you use a comma when addressing someone. (ex: "DoA, are you retarded?")

Second of all, "retarded" isn't the ideal word choice. It gets the point across, but it doesn't really convey the sentiment behind the attempted insult - not to mention that there is a social stigma attached to this word due to public concerns for people with intellectual disabilities. Your point could be made clearer depending on which kind of slur you wish to use; on the crazy side of the spectrum, we have bonkers, crackers, crazy, daffy, daft, deranged, dopey, flaky, insane, mental, nuts, wacky, and witless, and on the stupid side, you could use dense, dim, doltish, dull, dumb, idiotic, imbecilic, mindless, moronic, rash, senseless, simple, slow, stupid, or thick.

Finally, your question appears to be rhetorical. Even if it isn't, I can't give a definitive answer because no one has ever checked, and I'm not terribly concerned about it regardless.

"Shalt" is the second-person singular simple present, as in "Believe on the Lord Jesus, and thou shalt be saved."

You want "shall" here.

"Believe on the Lord Jesus"

So we're supposed to... stand on him or something? While believing?

got a problem m8?


RE: Sentences - vonunov - 09-02-2014 01:44 AM

It's a bit archaic but has a valid meaning of its own, different from believing in something:

http://m.wordsolver.net/?tpl=lookup&lang=&word=believe

{To believe on}, to accept implicitly as an object of religious trust or obedience; to have faith in. [1913 Webster]

The point was the conjugation of "shall", but this line is a conveniently familiar example.
