My apologies. I will make sure to note that particular sight gag before commenting on the next time I see comma splices on an internet forum.

That explains that email you sent me about the new textural collection your're planning for spring/summer, Panta x Veronica Moser.

^Wait, you replied to me. I thought you had me blocked. Which is strange because I think this is the first thread we have ever both participated in.

I was also wearing one of those Sherlock Holmes hats while sitting in a chair in my library. You need the total picture before you can comment.

I will be opening an airport shop so that I can sell the collection "duty-free".

I was always taught that two commas were acceptable so long as the sentence still made sense if the words between them were to be removed...

In this case, "I am a non-conformist." It's a correct sentence, so the commas, in this instance, are acceptable.

I find this hilarious for some reason.

Cars are a horrible investment. In fact they are not an investment at all, just an expense...overhead.

There was a book written several years ago called, "The Millionaire Next Door". This book was an empirical study of the habits of the wealthy -- and note, there is a key distinction between people who are wealthy and people who just have high incomes. One of the points it made was that actual millionaires seldom drive very expensive cars. In fact, they seldom buy new cars of any kind as they prefer buying used cars that are 2-3 years old.

You don't want to know what it said about clothes.

Actually, no. That's how I usually write. It's standard English that takes me forever.

"Millionaire Next Door", aka "Fun With Selection Bias"... Collect a sample of rich folks by giving away a free meal, act surprised when said sample turns out to be heavily weighted towards cheapskates with lots of free time, write book, profit.

'96 Accord was a fantastic example of mainstream excellence.
