/ Kev Shields: Ben Nevis article
Sorry, it's one of my pet Internet hates, along with "should of" instead of "should have" (which really makes my brain crunch its gears) and "its'".
I shall now return to my pedant's cell.
My turn: My pet hate's are:
1. 'Abject punters' - they need to put some effort into improving their climbing, especially if they want to have any credibility on UKClimbing.com.
2. people whose profile photographs like this: http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=150478 - There's no excuse these days for not being able to acquire a photograph of yourself which is in focus.
I shall now return to my arseholes cell.
oops. oh, the irony
'Pace' doesn't mean 'regarding'. It means something more like 'notwithstanding'.
I always find people complaining about Latin phrases being used in English silly inverted snobbery; do you have the same problem with, say, 'joie de vivre'?
KS - nice article, top fellow.
I thought the article was excellent, specially the parting line "So there it is; the game which now holds sway over every aspect of my life began as a naive young manís attempt to impress a girl!...'". Made me grin on a grey and wet morning.
