I doubt Bowser sent any of his koopas to school. It could be that English is a second language for all koopas? And as amusing as it was too see people correct each other, it is sad that it takes away from the comedic illustration posted here for our amusement.

Since we got Enraged Filia Spam: notes for Jo SG-related. They did make a Minette shirt last week, and introduced a Brazil color palette for Cerebella this week with a special Cerebella's cat.

While this particular choice of preposition does, as ever, carry the potential to draw attention from certain readers owing to the differing usage among regions of 'towards' as opposed to 'toward', it would still seem to represent most closely the act in question...

In addition, "march straight to him" poses a similar issue, as the verb phrase "to march to" implies that the koopas in question are attempting to reach Mario's vicinity and then stop. In this case, the preferred phrasing would seem to be "march straight toward him"...

Practically speaking, however, in order to maintain the sentence's cadence and focus attention on the following phrase "like he always does" (as seems to be the speaker's intent), using "jump on our heads" would seem to be preferable...

To indicate the action actually being referenced, namely stomping on the koopas, with an equivalent level of specificity would be possible with the prepositional phrase "bounce on our heads" or possibly "bounce off our heads"...

@Cenera Farmas: Amateur

Now the more subtle errors here are with the usage of actual prepositions, firstly the usage of the verb phrase "to jump onto our heads", which by the use of 'onto' instead of the more general 'on' would normally imply that Mario intends to remain on the koopa's heads...

@Cenera Farmas:
Actually, this is a quite common thing in English, and I'm not entirely certain that this is an improper use of grammar in this case. I believe the 'of' is actually optional there, as a preposition isn't always necessary with clear context. Also you're a jerk.

[url=#user_comment_336989]@Gamesman01[/url] I would say a language learned mostly in games and internet. I learned more English with games and internet than anywhere else.

@ Cenera Fatman I think he does very well for a non-english speaking writer. I'd like to see you do as well in a second language leaned mostly in school. Hell, your english could use some help.

[url=#user_comment_336966]@Swagner[/url]: I like nazis and I capitalize whenever the hell I want ;) confusing some very different words is something completely distinct from lack of capitalization. Go back to your cave smelly troll. I'm at least trying to teach people how to write properly,unlike others who don't give a crap.

Go back to your cave please. I'm trying to teach people to write correctly instead of not giving a crap, like the rest of the internet

@Cenera Farmas:
If you're going to be a grammar nazi, capitalize correctly. On top of that, make sure everything you type is a word.
As they say in one vernacular or another: "Chill out, dude."

"if they jump OFF a cliff", not "OF". Learn some fucking basic English already. Make the difference between a preposition and a verbal phrase ffs. Also, "Mario will just jump onto our heads like he always DOES". I do, you do, he/she/it DOES, we do, you do, they do.

The red ones never get wings though. Although they never walk of ledges, they never fly. Keep up the great work Jo
