Military brat (U.S. subculture)[edit]

Hi Grouchy, I responded to your criticisms on the Military brat FAC---but I honestly do not understand the one about poor grammar. Grammar isn't my strong suit, so it may be that I'm being dense, but I was hoping that you could respond to my question on the FAC page? If there is a problem, it needs to be fixed, I just don't see it.Balloonman 06:07, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Grouchy, I was wondering if there was anything else that you thought was needed before you could change your vote from reject to support? It sounds like you liked the article and I fixed your stated concerns, so I'm not sure if there is anything else?Balloonman 07:42, 2 February 2007 (UTC)


if we are going quibble about grammar i don't think wiki articles have mechanics...


1 a (1): of or relating to machinery or tools <mechanical applications of science> <a mechanical genius> <mechanical aptitude> (2): produced or operated by a machine or tool <mechanical power> <a mechanical refrigerator> <a mechanical saw> b: of or relating to manual operations

2: of or relating to artisans or machinists <the mechanical trades> 3 a: done as if by machine : seemingly uninfluenced by the mind or emotions : automatic <her singing was cold and mechanical> b: of or relating to technicalities or petty matters 4 a: relating to, governed by, or in accordance with the principles of mechanics <mechanical work> <mechanical energy> b: relating to the quantitative relations of force and matter <mechanical pressure of wind on a tower> 5: caused by, resulting from, or relating to a process that involves a purely physical as opposed to a chemical or biological change or process <mechanical erosion of rock>

so maybe you used the right word, though not literally the right word...! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:11, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

I've read this entry relating to mechanics many times, but never have been able to understand what I did to earn this fine elucidation. That is, I don't know which of my edits you're referring to. Sorry. GrouchyDan (talk) 04:08, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
