No. FYI, I didn't received fourteen years of education without cause. Don't judge a book by it's cover.

Fourteen years of education in what?

I'm sure I'll regret jumping into the off-topic fray here, but is 14 years supposed to be impressive? That's just an associate's degree, and that's only if you don't count kindergarten. Also, exactly what "cover" are we not supposed to judge him/her by? I didn't see any photo, and on the internet, the only thing people can "judge" you by is how you write. So let me get this straight... don't judge my education by my inability to construct a coherent sentence? Doesn't really make sense.

The spontaneous controversy regarding the use of my vocabulary in question, is strictly irrelavant, whether if I used a thesaurus, or not (which I denied, if you must know.) I am not compelled to give you, or anybody else on this forum a justifiable explanation, concerning the academic level of my vocabulary. For whatever reason, if my jargon is too convoluted for comprehension, defining the terminologies will be your responsibility. This absurd digression of this thread is concluded. Resume further discussions to it's original topic as intended.

This applies to you as well. Now what part of this sentence, you don't understand?

Seems like a clear case of obfuscation to create an aura of superior intelligence to me...
Did you ever take a critical thinking class? When one uses jargon and is unwilling to put it into layman's terms, it is usually because they are trying to hide something.
Besides your post does not flow.
"Antecedently endeavoring to pursue this conquest, the best advice is to educate yourself, and attend Business Management Classes. This stringently will be beneficial, knowledgeable for you in every aspect of business management professional operations, be exercised for the future.

"endeavoring to pursue," a repetition of the same meaning.
"This stringently will be beneficial," this makes no sense. Did you mean "this stringency?"
"knowledgeable for you in every aspect of business[...]" This part seems absolutely unneccessary as you already stated the same thing in the previous sentence. Unless you meant say "this knowledge will help you in every aspect of business..."
"be exercised for the future." The wording of this section of the sentence is unclear and does not fit the rest of the sentence.

Remember the most important part of writing is knowing your audience.

Why do you ask that? I think you can see that I understood what you said, as I broke it down. Ad hominem attacks are usually ineffective when the other people can see through them.

If you're a true believer in the supernatural ability of clairvoyance, then most certainly you have a serious metal problem to contend with.. More severe than I thought.

So what's the proper interpretation?

I'm pretty sure you know I was not talking about clairvoyance; but rather the shallowness that continues to persevere in your arguments.

I'm willing to admit that I am wrong but you have done nothing but attack me personally. I never said that I was a master of the English language, so please tell me what you were trying to say in your post. Maybe I'm just not familiar with the syntax that you are using.

Einstein was a physicist, not a linguist.

The general point of all this (and why it does relate to the topic at hand), is that you've misused words in several posts in an attempt to sound superior, resulting in confusing advice that isn't likely to be helpful to the OP.

I think the general point of your post:

Antecedently endeavoring to pursue this conquest, the best advice is to educate yourself, and attend Business Management Classes. This stringently will be beneficial, knowledgeable for you in every aspect of business management professional operations, be exercised for the future.
can be translated to English this way:

"Before opening your store, take some business classes. They'll help you be successful."

Exactly! Since you've perceived to be an intellectual, you solve it.

It's impossible to be a physicist genius, without maintaining a significant amount of intelligence of an linguist....DUH!

As I've stated before numerous of times, If my post are too difficult to comprehend to you, or anybody else, then tough titty. There's a word you should be familiar with... I surmised.

When you use big words, yet misspell small words, you do not look like a genius.

When you use big words, yet cannot use proper grammar around them, it is almost as bad.

ams 01-07-07 09:56 PM

Is this really happening?

I used to know people that would spout off ten dollar words to impress others. They all were complete idiots, or socially maladjusted.

This person has obviously been here for a long time, is this normal or what?

I would guess that this is meant to be a joke. As has been pointed out many times, the various errors mixed with the Jeopardy vocabulary mean that this person is not as educated as he/she would like us to believe.

Cases like this are usually funny....this is just sad.
