These Threads always go Awry.... Obviously Snap on has made a Decision to drop USA off some of there tools, Its Nothing New.. Its been that way for quite sometime. Plain and Simple if it bothers you or you dont Believe them when they list USA as the Country of Origin on the Website and Packaging... DONT BUY There Tools, As long as there Stock is on the Rise, They could care less about the USA stamp and the "Declining" Consumers who worry about that stuff anymore.


Merk's corrected version:

Your thread title used a double quotation mark where an apostrophe should rightfully reside.

There are at least a couple errors and unnecessarily complex punctuation issues in the "corrected" version, but I'm not going to spend the time to point them out.  fishslap

I will say, reading on these forums has shown that there are a lot of people who don't even know the basics about writing a sentence. Also, Hiball isn't even one of the worst offenders. I say cut Hiball some slack. He provides tons of useful info and no one be perfect.  <--- Done on purpose.

You have yet to complain about my cryptic, short hand sentence structures. I some how feel that you are over looking my posts and ignoring me. This is truly depressing to my self esteem.

Well, for one, I'm fairly certain one cannot use more than one semicolon per sentence. Also, there should be a comma after "...if it bothers you..."

You are not worth complaining about, but I agree with him that English is not your first language and you were not born here, or at the very least your parents were ex pats of some other country.
It doesn’t matter though where you’re from or how you grew up.

Not even close English is my first language but I grew up spending a lot of time in church with lots of exposure to KJV combined with in 2nd or 3rd grade we were taught proper english spellings for words(like colour, favourite, etc. don't ask me why a school in WV did that but whatever...) Then from 2007 till early 2011 I spent a lot of time on UK based forums(I still visit occasionally and even moderate one...) and talking to Brits and Scots and adopted certain words, spellings and updated what I knew of British English... As for me using Deutsch my cousins lived there and I encounter it a lot online so I had to learn quite a bit of that. Any other languages like Dutch, Arabic, French, Hebrew, Afrikaans, etc. I just use words I like but can't speak more than maybe a phrase. Now I seem to be going in the direction of using internet words(like bro, -fag, newb, etc.) I figure since the US doesn't have an official language I should use a little bit of everything.  grinx

Parents 100% American and I was born in Parkersburg WV and never left the continental USA.  th-smile Amazing what books and internet can do though...

Read a post like this and you'll never nitpick over hiball's posts again...

Quote from: 41ratrod;2336029
I've buy and sell on Craigs list .Bought a band saw just minutes after it was listed told the guy I'd be there in 20 minutes ,he was outside with the saw
when I got there .Helped me load it and gave me a moving cart to move it with
when I got home.
 I'll buy and sell cars on Craigs list and had great luck so far.I print out the
Kelly Blue Book prices and sell them for what they are worth. When I go look at a car I'll take the trailer with me and cash in hand.
 One time I drove 60 mile to get a car and got almost there and relied I for the money. So I called the guy who was at work and told him and he said no problem he'll call his Mom and tell her and he'll meet me in the morning with
the tile. Real nice guy . It was a Suzuki X90 he was asking 600 and I got it for
400 and sold it for 1200.to a guy down the street about a year ago and he drives it every day to work and loves it.   
 Had a young guy hitch a ride form Little Rock Ark. to buy a car sight unseen
and he never drove a 4 speed before .Had to teach him how to drive it and he gave me the asking price and drove it home.
 I all was tell them its sold as is but if you have any questions call me. I've never had anyone call me back about problem.
i don't do this for a living I do it to for support my other projects. It's time to buy another one and get some CASH.

This car is a pile of crap. Noisy, rattly, slow and underpowered and has a reputation for being unreliable. I want one.

Holy Batman... 31 Posts concerning my English/Typing skill's? I apologize up Front, English Wasn't and still isn't my Strong suit. Sometimes my Fingers get a little Crazy... and throw some run on periods in where maybe they shouldn't be and forget the occasional Comma. I barely Graduated High School, Had to take English 11 as a Senior because i failed as a Junior but im pretty happy with my Life, I have a Great job that affords me some luxuries in life and probably make 2-3x's as much as a 3rd grade teacher.

No Worries... IF Tons of members would have chimed in complaining about my English/typing skills i would have maybe wondered if i was in the Wrong forum, I can Deal with a couple guys. IMO The True Mark of a Intelligent person is how he Handles dealing with someone who is Learning or maybe not as knowledgeable on a specific subject. If i decided to make light of every person who asked a dumb question in regards to rebuilding a Hydraulic jack i would one be Banned from Garage Journal, and Probably Moderating the "Bash and Bang" Section here at GG. Thats just not my style, I wasnt brought up that way.. And NO Merk, I dont want any English Lessons from you.   :))

The Majority of my Threads are "Readable", Sometimes i get frustrated and Type faster than i should or Dont proofread. Especially in Regards to Apostraphe's, Just too Lazy..

You're definitely not lazy, because you use the shift key and capitalize every other word. Take some of
that energy you're using operating the shift key and redirect it towards an apostrophe once in awhile.  grinx

Don't sweat it Hiball, if I posted more frequently, Merk would be on my case too. Living my entire life on the Texas-Louisiana border, it is a blessing that I can communicate with y'all as well as I do. Between the rednecks and the coonasses, we kind of lead the way in butchering the English language. I was watching "Swamp People" on cable TV and wondered why they put English subtitles on the screen. I know the rest of the country doesn't talk like that, but is it really that bad? I agree that Merkava might need something better to do...

LOL, that reminds me of the movie Airplane. That was the first time I ever saw subtitles for bad English. In the movie it was two black guys chatting with "Jive Lady" (Barbara Billingsley from Leave it to Beaver). Laughed my a$$ off. After seeing the clip below, maybe the subtitles were in Airplane the Sequel.

If my uncle can't get off, or jack off, a horse by himself, he's certainly not getting my help.

The only reason this thread is in the Bash & Bang section is because Hiball's post I quoted is from GJ. All GJ quoted posts go in the Bash & Bang section. It has nothing to do with Hiball himself.

I'll take up for Merk a little here.  I took it more for his OCD kicking in then an affront on Hiball.  I don't remember any problem between 2 helpful members, but I know Merk gets torqued a bit on grammar and punctuation, among other things lolx.  I didn't think there was malicious intent though I see where one could infer that.  I say that cause I have cyber known both for quite a while and both are good guys IMO.
