the indulgent ascetic finite though this life may be, perhaps i will endeavor to chronicle my depravity,

an encyclopędia of perversity, in the hope that either i or the experiences i share will be taken off of this dusty shelf and be put to good and thorough use

the more sensitive may rest easy, it's not all of the mechanics of the flesh or even always accounts of the act itself

it is too often forgotten that sometimes the most trancendent moments of pleasure do not always entail the consummation of the carnal

tenderness is as much to be sought as the bliss of raw passion

i don't know it all
don't claim to

i'm always happy to learn more
minnesota_chris Got a question for you peeps.

If you can read and write well, do you really need to know grammar? I'm asking because I was helping a teacher teach subjects and predicates. And the kids just weren't getting it.

But what bugs me is, they could make sentences just fine. So do they really need to know what is a subject or a predicate? Does the label matter, if they can use the tools just fine?
nocturnal they may be able to make sentences correctly now, but what happens when they're writing something one day and something seems wrong with a particular sentence or phrase, but they just can't quite put their finger on it? if they don't know the rules to which they can refer for assistance, what are they supposed to do? 021011
dax 4th grade TA 1) they should read more often
2) they should speak more often
those are the most proven tools for learning language
as long as they are able to communicate and be understood, they should be fine without all that nonsense of grammar
nocturnal until they're writing their college entrance essays or their resumes and they say something like, "Where I live at, people tell me I'm the most smartest person in town. They think I should get in to the honors program to."
I definitely agree that they should read, write, and speak more. That really is the best way for the teacher to learn 'em real good.
