I must be a stupid old unfit white American good-for-nothing crazy bastard.

Now that I know the order of adjectives, I'm going to start correcting those maniac friends and relatives who send improper text and email messages. They'll thank me for it.

Except in English, we don't capitalize "Noun." I suspect a German was behind this.

Wait a minute ... don't we want to prevent something from not working?
I've read this several times, trying to avoid preventing myself from not getting unconfused.  Or something.

LOL, I had to read it a bunch of times too.  Still not 100% but ... I think the confusion was brought in by their effort to minimize the severity of the "issue."  They could have just said "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from working," but I assume that they wanted to stress that the issue is minor and they're not always not working, only temporarily:hmm:  Funny thing is once they added to the "temporarily" they could have dumped the "not" - it means basically the same thing with or without the "not."

So the fix is going to make sure (stop the issue from preventing) that the audio controls temporarily not work?  To be honest, this reads like it was written by a number of different attorneys, each adding a word or two until the meaning was completely incomprehensible.

It was not written by attorneys.

It was written by a few people, and sometimes when you've written something a few times, or proofread it a few times, you read what you think it says instead of what it actually says.

Y'all know this can happen.

My wife is an attorney. She had me read a page on a lease the other day so she could compare it to the original. OMG. I told her my high school English teachers would have given in an 'F' because it was a massive run on sentence.

Nothing extraordinary  but this sentence (in a ridiculously long paragraph filled with lawyer speak) in particular from a warranty agreement doc that I have to sign today between us and a customer (X'ed out the actual name) gave me a headache. Sure by the 3rd try you can figure it out but man, there's got to be an easier way to express the statement:

If, and to the extent that, these Terms conflict with any terms affixed to any confirmation, purchase or procurement document issued by Buyer, these terms and conditions shall prevail irrespective of whether Buyer accepts these conditions by a written acknowledgement, by implication, or acceptance and payment of goods ordered hereunder. '

For eg., what is the purpose of the phrase 'and to the extent that,' after 'If', in the opening? I read the sentence by removing the phrase and the meaning intended does not change at all. At least in my simpler perspective it does not.

If the attorney had written this in real understandable English, someone would have questioned whether he was worth the $400 or $500 or whatever hourly rate he was billing.  If they can't understand it, they figure he knows something that they don't.

    • I’m not following a ton - what’s the context? They’re in testing now, with other teams on the same track(s)?
    • With the testing results thus far it looks like Red Bull really just decided, "Yeah, the zero pods were actually a good idea but Mercedes is just stupid." Both Newey and GP (Max's race engineer) were grinning ear to ear as Max went out and smashed every other time on the board by nearly a full second despite not being on a qualifying simulation run.

    • DAY 3:  Swing practice in the Golf Garage (52°, PW, 7i) for 30 minutes.  A little fall off from yesterday's gaudy numbers on the shot monitor, which I'm attributing to a little fatigue in the swing.  Post-op rehab continues! ☺️
    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.
