Sometimes, it’s the little things…

A few nits I’d like to pick, after perusing blogs elsewhere on the intertubes:

The word you’re looking for is “depraved.”  While one *can* (I suppose) be “morally deprived,” that phrase doesn’t mean what you apparently think.

After the collapse, most of us will be trying to eke out a living.  To eek out a living is the purview of mice and their kin.

Fear the Alot.

Commas.  Dammit, commas.  And don’t get me started on apostrophes.

It’s much easier to find water in the dessert than in the desert.  Tastier, too.

The Bible–even setting aside the debates about “divinely inspired word of God,” factuality (or lack thereof), originality, and the like–is still mythology.  Get over it.

And it’s “two, ” too.  Not “to.”  “Two” is a number; “too” means “also;”  “to” means “towards” or “at.”

It’s “deep-seated,” not “deep-seeded.”  The former would be ingrained, the latter wouldn’t sprout.

There are more.  Many, many more.  I’ll attack them later, though, as I come across them.

    And don’t forget the dreaded “your/you’re” and “there/their/they’re”. Although I’ll be the first to admit that I mix these up when I’m typing quickly.
