ultimately destroy Tokyo.
So if Tokyo is destroyed does that mean Pentax is doomed?

So you do have money. "The double negative has led to prove positive. I'm afraid you gave yourself away."

Don't tell me... the last post of the thread will prove the whole thing to be an elaborate Rickroll.

And a double positive does not give a negative... "Yeah, right!"

In my head, I was singing the blues. Proper grammar doesn't enter the picture.

What? They aren't gone by now? They've been doomed for so long that their final exit from the face of the earth will be such an anticlimax.

Actually, some people who keep track of and make official announcements on these things have proclaimed that the double negative is now acceptable in English, and pointed out that it already is acceptable in many other languages. The double negative adds emphasis rather than negates itself.

You folks need to keep up, if you're going to be so critical.

English grammar is doomed!

(Or is it "English grammar ain't never not doomed!" ?)

No that would mean it's really really not doomed. We need an english to english translator, for people who speak "high English". Pretty tall stuff for a language that combines elements of german, latin and french in what could best be described as one of the most bastard languages ever created.

I think Afrikaans may be in first place, but English has to be a close second.

Which reminds me of a French Canadian mechanic working on my car… He said " You need a part… I don't know what you call it in English, but in French we call it a "Shock absorber". Shock absorber pronounced with a heavy french accent and emphasis placed on the "er".

SInce Pentax was already doomed, if Tokyo is destroyed.. it is doomed squared.
