I just need to share that the lovely momijizukamori sent me a delightful package in the mail: Booster Gold and Ted Kord, staring at the viewer and laughing their fool heads off, and signed by none other than Kevin Maguire.  

I laughed like a loon the moment I opened it, and I am sorely, sorely tempted to hang it beside my posters of Superman and Batman, who are both staring grimly at the viewer and are respectively proclaiming “THIS LOOKS LIKE A JOB FOR SUPERMAN” and “I’M BATMAN”

I just feel like it’s the most in character place for me to hang it.  Either way, THIS SUCKER’S GETTING HANGED

JERKING OFF TO THIS

OH GOD LESS VERSUS FEWER THANK YOU FOR ACKNOWLEDGING MY PERSONAL GRAMMATICAL VENDETTA.

By accident. On purpose. Never on accident.

Few native speakers make the less vs. fewer distinction.

Also, this could just be regional, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard an actual person say “by accident” (Ihave read it, however). There is nothing semantically linking the use of the particular preposition “by” to the abstract substantive “accident,” just as there is no semantic link between “on” and “purpose.” “By” implies adjacency, which doesn’t add anything to the meaning of the phrase “by accident”; Why must one be next to and accident but upon a purpose?  There’s no logic linking these words, but rather arbitrary usage, and if usage is the gauge, then both are correct and you can stop being a prescriptivist elitist.

I get a bit of anxiety after seeing this T.T
