Godwins Law actually states that in an online argument, the person who first compares their opposition to Hitler is indistinguishable from satire.

I can't tell if you're serious or not.

Hitler had the same problem.

So in other words, ss is getting annoyed that people are using the word "of" where the correct word is "have", presumably in phrases like "I could have done this" or "You should have done that". And I agree that as someone who tries to avoid grammatical errors it's annoying.

Everybody knows it's "coulda" and "shoulda".

So there's a website for Chief Learning Officer. It involves media. So naturally, it has a website called:

I nearly spat out my drink when I read that URL in my head.

I like Firefly because it was by far the best designed tank during WWII.

Quick, someone write a film noir story.

Yes sir.

Titandrake sat in his office, smoking in the dark, waiting. The soft glow of the cigarette illuminated the pistol on his cluttered desk. A sudden knock startles Titandrake.
"Come in," he mumbles. The door opens, letting in the light, temporarily blinding Tidandrake. He could barely make out the glowing figure, but surely it must be some hot femme fatale who would surely lead Titandrake to his doom. He was wrong.

A ninja stood at the door, a sword drawn. Titandrake rushed for his weapon, but it was already too late. The ninja cut down Titandrake.
"You thought I was some hot deadly woman," the ninja said. "You thought wrong. I am a con man, who is also a ninja." Titandrake was bleeding heavily, gasping on the floor.
"Y-you... ConMan!"
"You should of been prepared."
"...Should have..."
Enraged, the Con Man Ninja slays TitanDrake.

...And that is how Titandrake got ninja'd by a Con Man, film noir style.
I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've appeared in a fic. I'm honoured.

I just saw the headline "Parents of Boys Missing at Sea Battle Over iPhone Discovered on Boat", and I'm fascinated by how many ways you can interpret it.

When I first read it, I thought the boys were missing at a sea battle.  After rereading it, I decided battle was a verb.  Okay, so the parents are battling.  They're battling over iPhone...does that mean they're having a battle via iPhone, or they're battling to decide the ownership of the iPhone?  And who/what was discovered on the boat?  Was it the iPhone, the boys, or the parents?  Or was it the sea battle?

Parents of (boys missing at sea) battle over (iPhone discovered on boat)
Parents of (boys missing at sea) battle over iPhone, and then are discovered on boat
Parents of (boys missing at "sea battle"), over iPhone, are discovered on boat
Parents of (boys missing at ("sea battle" over iPhone)) discovered on boat
Parents of (boys missing at ("sea battle" over (iPhone discovered on boat)))
Parents of (boys missing at ("sea battle" over iPhone) discovered on boat)
Parents of (boys missing at (("sea battle" over iPhone) discovered on boat))

I assume it is actually:

Parents of (Boys Missing at Sea) Battle Over (iPhone Discovered on Boat)

Incredibly, the boat and iPhone must have been found, so the boys went overboard?

I don't understand how this or the  "sea battle" interpretations make much sense.  Parsing it that way leaves the headline without a verb.  What is the meaning you guys are reading into that?

Edit: Should have read scott's more carefully since they add punctuation, but they all seem far more awkward constructions than the very first one which ashersky also highlighted.  I guess headlines are often awkward though.  Then again, I don't think they tend to omit important commas.

This is a "sea battle" interpretation. There are boys missing at sea battle. And then there's an iPhone discovered on boat. The article is (presumably a picture of) the parents of those boys (being) over that iPhone.

The parents could be over a phone owned by boys lost in a sea battle.
The parents could be battling over a phone owned by boys lost at sea.
The boys could be lost at Sea Battle, the place.

That is really incredible headline. Like, why can't the parents share the darn phone anyways?

That makes sense for a picture caption, sure, but not a headline.
