If I ruled the world... - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
If I ruled the world...
…spelling 'hamster' as 'hampster' would be punishable by death.

That's a bit harsh, surely?

Littering, now, if I ruled the world....

Maybe it's a hip dirty clothes bin?

Not that I have occasion to type it often, but hamster usually starts off as hampster for me - but that's because of typing Northampton so often, ham is automatically followed by a p. I do correct it though *mitigates*

Yes, this would be an acceptable punishment.

("Hampster" sounds like a cross between a small rodent and a picnic basket...)

Also, confusing "your" and "you're" (and "yore" for that matter...); "they're", "their" and "there"; and "it's" and "its". All utterly intolerable crimes against humanity.

Then, there's "aloud" and "allowed", "where", "were", "wear", and "ware",.....

oh hell....as they say in Brooklyn, "faghedaboudid."

If it were left up to me, no one would live to say "between you and I" a second time. Especially if they said it on television. In a scripted show. And the scriptwriter would suffer the same punishment.

Or 'myself' in sentences like, 'Do come and speak to myself', or 'Hannah and myself will be there'.

Isn't that the little one on top gear? *grins*

GBS would have laughed, as well, I think.

Can we punish the 'said silently' people too?

*laughs* Oh dear.
