What happens in quantum statistical thermodynamics stays in quantum statistical thermodynamics...b/c no one else cares.

Out of the frying pan and on to the floor. Back into the frying pan, let hope none of the guests saw.

Whoa!! Potential bacon in earshot!

You know you're a grammar Nazi when you look at the latest post in One Up Me by flamebirde and you smile because he used "you're" instead of "your."

Nope, it's you're. Unless that was the joke, in which case I applaud you! Voting is open for another day until I declare a winner.

I have never been so self-conscious writing a forum post until now.

I was smiling because I was proud of you, flamebirde :P

You should have written,

Nope, it's "you're"

You know you're a grammar Nazi when you read the above and realise that:

1) flamebirde was correct; it's "you're"

2) Brainiac probably didn't realise that everyone else would misread brainy's 'One-Up Me' and assume that brainy was incapable of correcting sentences

3) flamebirde has become self-conscious about writing a forum post because of brainy

4) marksmanjay's re-correction of flamebirde's statement is oddly funny

5) EDM didn't put a period after each point, and will not do so as she is not a grammar Nazi

6) EDM has referred to herself in 3rd person while typing these points

7) marksmanjay, flamebirde, brainiac100, and EDM show up as grammatical/spelling errors when typing (the computer doesn't categorize them, apparently)

8) 'realise' comes up as a spelling error in US english, but not in UK english

9) 'english' comes up as an error as the 'e' is not in capitals

10) brainy is not considered as a spelling error, though many would disagree with me (I really don't know why)

Edit: just to check my work... :D

^ The sentence above contains grammatical errors. However, this sentence is free of any errors, as per the computer spell-check.
