No classes today! Which means I basically got out of a hour lecture and a Physics II test, not as much as I would have hoped. It looks as thought we'll have classes tomorrow, judging by the radar image, but there's a chance that my Flight professor, who commutes from Massachusetts, might not be able to make it in. That means I won't have to hand in my rocket nozzle homework!
Reductio ad absurdum

Back with a rant! I have a theory and it is this: people have no idea how to use the various homophones of "your". In the past week or so, I can't say that I've seen it used correctly by a single person on the Internet. Of course, the people who you'd expect to use it right do- news articles, the blogs I read, etc. I haven't seen anyone who is just an average Joe Internet denizen use it correctly! When you're supposed to use the contraction as a substitution for "you are," people use "your". When you're using it as a possessive pronoun, people use "you're". It never fails! I'm starting to get suspicious at this point that they're deliberately using the exact opposite of what is right 100% of the time...
YOU'RE AND YOUR
