Just a thought

Having read the archives of QoW more than once, I like the "author commentary" strips. It's great to see things from Aeire's point of view (now that I've already seen them from mine).

It's always fun to see what the author's thoughts are on certain things. Like giving new incite on a joke they put in there that only they would know, or pointing out little details that enhance the universe.

Franc, I agree.

And Ambystoma4, I do too, but the word you're looking for is "insight".

Insight.

Okay that's it, I need a grammar/spelling nazi uniform.

ok... the "grammer time" thing was just wrong. I remember QoW's Grammer Spork...do they make a Bad 80's Reference Spork? :wink:

Sentences are not to be started with conjunctions.

It's good to see which parts were based on reality. I wonder if that will continue...

Nor (yay! did it again) are they meant to end with prepositions, which reminds me of the good ol' joke:

This freshman is lost on his first day at *insert random pompous/arrogant school aka mine* and asks a student who happens to be walking by: "Excuse me, could you tell me where the library is at?"
The student sneers at him and answers "Sentences should not end with prepositions", so the freshman takes a moment to consider this then reiterates:
"Okay. Could you tell me where the library is at, a**hole?".

Moral: In 'spoken' conversation, there are some rules that can be bent, for the sake of dynamic behaviour as well as, well... just being natural, really.
