    That is just superb. One thing, you forgot about when you follow it with a closed parentheses. There are no sentences needed, in that case.

    Pretty neat. I used it in my essay to make my essay "fancier". I got high marks.

    I never use semicolons; they're just too complicated.

    (did I do it right?)

    It's not that hard; most people just suck at writing.

    I ROFL'd when I saw that. Especially the part about Godzilla being misunderstood. But yeah, semi-colons are barely used; they deserve more than to be left in the punctuation dump.


    See what I did there? [​IMG]
