    I forgot
    Considering a lot of people that are supposedly from the US have incredibly terrible grammar/seems to hardly know English, let's give them a little lesson on English. Hell, this could apply to those who don't speak English and are struggling and might need a hand! I could think of quite a few people who could benefit from these "lessons"

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    You forgot to mention how ''s' is used for possessive when using a name or object, unless it's plural, in which case the apostrophe comes after the 's'. But in all cases the apostrophe always indicates something is missing.

    Also,
    I'm not in the US and I'm not struggling. :P

    Acho muito bem que se fale Inglês correctamente.
    Se nos "obrigam", aqui, a falar Inglês, ao menos que se fale como deve ser...

    Well, truth be told, in most forums and social websites that I've been to, most people write english really badly, worst is, most of the times they're from the US... It's really degrading to the English language when so many people write like that online. xP
