For all you grammar freaks out there, tell me what this sentence doesn't not not say:
As has already been pointed out, the not-not double negative cancels itself out, leaving us to work out what the sentence doesn't say...
quote:
I don't not object to your reverse argument of the fact that no one can not truly not know those that did not not raise them.
OK, double-negatives cancel out, giving us:

"I object to your reverse argument of the fact that no-one cannot truly not know those that raised them."

I assume a "reverse argument" is an argument against a point, and if no-one cannot, then everyone can, so...

"I disagree with you when you disagree with the fact that everyone can truly not know those that raised them."

To disagree with a disagreement, is to agree with the original point, so...

"I think that everyone can truly not know those that raised them."

So, to answer the original question, the sentence doesn't not not say that the speaker does not agree that everyone can truly not know those that raised them.

Of course, you could just be lazy and say that it doesn't not not say something other than the original quote, but that would be cheating. :)

By your argument, that sentence would mean that Gabe is simply aroused by wirthling, and we all know that is just not the case.

It's not a case of simple arousal. It is more accurate to describe Gabe's feelings towards me as "a deep, burning, all-encompassing passion that burns hotter than a thousand suns." At least that's what the valentine that he sent me said...

I believe I should state that 'sassenach, (a swear word meaning 'Englishman,') is Gaelic, meaning it is Scottish, not Irish.

Incidentally, since NeoVid is both Irish and black, he is obviously an alcoholic.

Jesus, is everyone here Irish? You ****ing lushes. Go Erin Go Braugh yourselves, you pudwackers.

By the way, I'm like 75% Irish and 25% German, and two ethnicities associated with drinking more I do not know. Which means I could drink any combination of two of you under the table. Trust me. Drinking and bobbing for apples in the toilet (I think they're apples) are my two gifts.

And DexX, I have a homegame coming out for those who do not not enjoy canceling negatives, so send me $39.99, and it's yours. But, wait, that's not all. If you act now, you can also get a complimentary Webster's Dictionary. Order now!

Grammar Pedant Gets What He Deserves by Scyess

Actually, I think you mean, "Everyone's sick of MY tying their ball sacks around their ankles, not 'ME TYING.'"
No, it depends on what you make the modifier.
No, if you take it IN CONTEXT you'll see that, um...wait, quit looking at me like that...
grrr...
I should've done this to my 8th grade teacher when he was teaching me all that crap.
Damn, Jon, I've got to remember to bring a camera when I come to your neighborhood... geez, are those your balls??

...and NOW I see I ****ed up the quotation marks. Grrr...

Okay, time for a winner.

I guess it's traditional to at least mention a few words about my favorites. I guess that's so the next time I judge these things, you know my tastes better.

Pokee: I think each of us has a deep-seated need to zap someone who is singing that Chimney Sweep song.
Fracture: Funny despite the lack of Donkey Sodomy
Descolada: Ah. Very nice. Donkey Sodomy is always funny. And erotic, too, I guess.
Gabe: Excellent entry. A strong 2nd place finish, I think. You squeezed in all the letters in an unobtrusive manner, and you mentioned that I was funny to avoid being DQd from rule 4.
Obijo: It would have been better without the Z. =)

And, here is what I came up with in a fit of creativity. I'm subjecting you all to it, even though it's not in my top 5 favorites of the contest.

CC #31 - Captain Monosyllabic to the rescue! by ladyjdotnet
5-21-01
Captain Monosyllabic waits in his underground lair, ready to zoom into action at the next call for justice!
ring-ring!
Yo!
Like the Shadow, Captain Monosyllabic also knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men...
Quickly! We need help from Captain Monosyllabic! Who's this?
Hmmm!
...he just isn't able to say it.
You can't pronounce your own name, can you, Captain Monosyllabic.
No!

Ladyjdotnet is the winner!

For some reason, this struck me as really, really funny, even without donkey sodomy.

Doctor Pedantic is on crack. Use of Gaelic is far more widespread in Ireland than in Scotland. Geographically, half of Scotland (the highlands) was occupied by Gaelic-speakers (Celts, I assume, but I don't know for sure) but the Highland population was subject to something approaching attempted genocide, or "ethnic cleansing" as the PC Police like to call it.

The Highlanders who remain speak English with an accent more like Irish than Lowland Scottish, and only a very small number of Gaelic-speakers survive in Scotland, confined mainly to the remote northern islands, such as the Hebrides.

Lowland Scots, who make up most of the population of Scotland, speak a dialect of English derived from Old Scots, an ancient Germanic language. The Irish, on the other hand, are largely mostly descended from the Gaelic-speaking Celts, and the Irish dialect of Gaelic is now Ireland's National Language, to the extent that it is being taught in schools. Hence, any Gaelic word in use these days is most likely of Irish origin and usage, and not Scottish.

Now stop shooting your credibility in the foot, Doctor Pedantic.
