My grammar sucks, friend. You don't my help. The best thing I can do is keep making harmless, albeit obvious and silly, jokes.

I'm going to try anyway. Again, who's anyway?

Or do you not even get it.

"this comma is optional, I think?" Though, the 't' is 'this' should be capitalized.

Lately, I've been going to the movies. I know people use commas when ending and starting sentences with words like now, lately, and other these kind of words. What kind of words are these anyway? This shit is nuts.

I ate some cake again.


The punctuation is the least of your worries. Even with a comma between cake and now, the sentence is off because you can't ate cake now.

*I am eating some cake now.

As long as you don't talk like that - you'll be fine.

I think a comma should come before your signature in the thread titles, and Dev should not be capitalized, and also Dev should not be in the thread title.
