Darn, after all these years studying English it turns out I don't know sh*t just because I don't happen to live in the US! :cry: :lol:

By the way, I've got a doubt regarding these sentences:

valerie wrote:I use to make $20 but I don't any more
My add-on use to work but it doesn't any more
I use to live in India but I don't any more

Shouldn't all those "use" actually be "used"? Or is it just another made in the USA language thing? :mrgreen:

No, that wouldn't make sense. It was an example, by the way.

If you want proper English it would be :

Previously I made $20, I don't any more.

The word 'use' in the way I 'used' it in my example, is poor English, more of a lazy slang.

I think it's just about respect and that is all.

Of course bodies of land were taken, either by peace or by war. That is no reason not to have
respect for your country.

People seem to like drop down menu's for everything. I don't agree with that. That causes
confusion and too much thought. Too much thought makes my head hurt.

Who are people? Does it really matter what color they are? There's some old classic movies....
well, they are old classic movies now......but I think my watching those movies taught me more
than a book on the subject or racism, prejudice, bias, etc. The movies are:

Hell in The Pacific - came out in 1968
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner - 1967

Those two movies showed me that respect and love is not bias, does not care about color,
has no place for prejudice, and does not welcome racism. They helped me to understand
about life, love, war, and how even the most hated people against each other, can become
the most loved of each other.

People are never going to learn, I fear. Not everyone knows what respect is and the worse
part is not having self respect. If you don't have self respect, you don't have anything.

I think people should respect there country if their country is respectful of humanity.

I have two legs, two arms, two eyes, and fortunately they all work. I was born on planet
earth. That is all. That is all there is.

Yep, my point exactly BouldRake.

They need to have required classes that teach kids important life skills:

-How to handle their money, save for retirement, mortgages, vehicle payments, etc

-How to be prepared for emergencies, how to stay alive in the wild, how to protect oneself from an invasion, etc

Most kids don't go to college. In fact, many drop out before they go very far in high school.

Those kids can't tell you anything now or years later about geometry. It's doubtful they can
relay much about history. The only think they can tell you about Greek mythology is there
was a woman with snakes on her head.

So why don't schools also focus on helping kids with the life skills they really need to survive
in this world.....and if they gave them more interesting classes, maybe they would stick around
longer in school.

I don't think they need donations.

Thanks for offering, however.

You want to get things in order long before retirement age. I do wish I had given more
attention when I was young BUT with that said, they didn't and maybe still don't, teach
it in school.

Oh after you get in college, if you go to college, you can take Economics 101 that takes
a person with an IQ of 5000 to understand. :lol:

What I am saying is, our schools and our parents/caregivers should begin teaching us
right away at an early age, the importance and the structure for what and why we need
to secure our retirement.

No it is because some reply to us like we are administration and we're not. Some get mad at us
for any and everything because they think we're suppose to do something to fix their issues. I say

I hope I am not being misunderstood. I know I can be odd. :lol:
All my life, I've been told I have a dry sense of humor.

To be clear, I am not saying members shouldn't have fun here or
converse about topics in general. That is why the general sub
forum is here.

What I am saying, it is that ClixSense is foremost an advertising
program in which members can make extra money and that should
be the main focus.

If you think about it, there is often a lot of time on topics that
reflects away from what a member really could be doing to help
themselves make more money.

I call it 'misplaced focus'.

A real example is one day many years ago, long before CS even
existed, I was spending much of my time one day on a forum. I
took a break and used a safelist to promote a program I was an
affiliate of. Within the hour after sending my ad, I had made about
$250.00. I will never forget that but I do forget that marketers name...
he was killed some years later in a race car at a race track. I recall
receiving checks in the mail every so often when I made sales. Eh
now I am going to research and find out what his name was. Owned
a popular program name Marketing something or other. :lol:

So what i am saying is, if I had continued to sit at the forum that
day, I wouldn't have made the $250.

My point is, it's fine to have some fun. All work and no play makes
something. If you sweat the small stuff and mis place focus, you
lose possibilities that may become realities. That is what I am saying.

I like the British language and the French language the best, me thinks.

I guess it has something to do with my childhood.

By the way charez, American's don't necessarily talk the way you pointed out. What you
pointed out is typo's. Neither do I know what you mean about a triangle having three sides.

I am trying to help people here by pointing out something that is often misunderstood and
could truly cause them to not get the help they need or even to lose money. I am not being

By the way, triangle have 3 sizes

Oh we rarely talk proper English in the USA. My point is, a lot of people say what I pointed out and
most Americans will take what they are saying, completely opposite. So if they are working in a USA
program, sending in support tickets, or even posting comments on a forum, most will take what they are
saying totally backwards of what they mean.

The only people that talk proper English is the British. Ya got to love the British language....cup o tea

Oh yeah, I would be doing a jig. When you get your first check, you should splurge a little.
Go do something you normally don't get to do.

Retirement in the USA starts at 62 and then it goes by your birth year in regards to full
retirement. If we retire at 62, our retirement check will be much lower than if we retire
at a later age.....and then full retirement is at the maximum dollar. It is different for
everyone according to what they paid in through their employment all their life. I think
the absolute maximum anyone can get in the USA is $2,000 a month retirement check.

Full retirement for me is 66 years old.

I wish I had a dollar for every time I have read that on this forum.

We see people outside of the USA often say something like this :

- I made $20 til now

What does that tell the American reader?
It tells us you no longer make $20. You previously made it but up until now, you no longer do.

Another example

-My add-on worked til now

What does that tell the American reader?
It tells us your add-on no longer works.

Let's do another example:

-I was living in India til now

What does that tell the American reader?
It tells us you no longer live in India.

So when you use the words 'til now' you are using those words improperly. I know what you really mean
but most English speaking people will not.

They will think you are saying:

I use to make $20 but I don't any more
My add-on use to work but it doesn't any more
I use to live in India but I don't any more

I know what you are really saying but most won't:

Up to this point, I have made $20
Up to this point, my add-on works
Up to this point, I still live in India

Slang = til
Proper = until

I never will understand why they send such nonsense. It would make more sense if they
said something like 'a man passed away here recently leaving property that sold for 1.4
million dollars. We have traced his only living relative to be you....

Something like that. It just goes to show how little their brain is. It makes me wonder
if they even know how to wipe their axx.
