    Let's all drive gray cars in the rain and low visibility with our lights off. What good is driving without a little bit of excitement, apparently?

    I don't know why, but this just made me laugh so hard I dropped the cracker I was about to eat.

    EDIT: And then when I went to pick it up, I rolled over it with my desk chair. I blame you for the cracker crumbs mashed into my carpet!
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Well, you shouldn't let it go to waste.

    First person, especially first person singular, is strongly discouraged in technical or scholarly writing, but I have seen plenty of formal writing that uses it, e.g. letters of appreciation at work.
    Our friendship would profit us both alike. Much we could still accomplish together, to heal the disorders of the world. Let us understand one another, and dismiss from thought these lesser folk.

    Good point. Even the rules of formal writing aren't all of one accord.

    "We" is used in academic papers, too; and some single-author papers use the "royal we" to refer to that single author. Some fields use it more than others, and some editors get all up in arms about it. Here, check it out.
    I'm all for framing thoughts/sentences in the least awkward and cumbersome way possible.

    I think some of you are taking english classes and some of you are helping them out with their homework.

    If you're having typology problems, I feel bad for you son. I can type 99 people, but myself ain't one.
