Although saying “gift with” is awkward.

“Gift” can be used as a verb. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/gift Second definition.
Nope, Lilo & Stitch all the way.
I’m only 25 but when I was in high school, it was considered cutting edge if your phone could store mp3 files.
In your “final version” in the blue dress, the light switch to your left is distorted. And you can totally tell that you’ve used some weird filter. Most people’s faces aren’t slightly blurry. Not to mention that half of the celeb photos vs. paparazzi photos are iPhone quality vs. professional camera quality. The camera on an iPhone is not going to produce as much detail as a professional camera with a detachable lens.
No, it isn’t. It has a complete subject and verb, with “better” being an adjective describing Alice. It is the same as saying “Grass is green” or “The dog is happy.” Dependent clauses can be moved around to different parts of the sentence; “Alice is better” cannot. Dependent clauses are quite obviously not complete sentences. They often have words like “When”, “Though”, “Because”, or start with a participle or infinitive. For example, if you say, “When going to the store, I always pick up milk,” the dependent clause “when going to the store” can be moved nearly anywhere in the sentence. “I always pick up milk when going to the store”, “I, when going to the store, always pick up milk”, or even “I always, when going to the store, pick up milk.” Two independent clauses may be closely related to each other, but that doesn’t make the second one a dependent clause. If you placed a period between the two above instead of a conjunction, it would still be correct grammar and make sense. “Bob is good at maths. Alice is better.”
#5 has two independent clauses connected by a conjunction. Both “Bob is good at math” and “Alice is better” are independent clauses. “But” is a conjunction which connects the two.
Bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers. Super easy. Mix equal parts cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese. Cut the jalapenos in half and (using gloves) scoop out the seeds and membranes. Leave the stem on. Fill the halves with the cheese mixture, then wrap each popper with a strip of bacon. Bake ~300 or 325F until the bacon is cooked.
I think her point would have been better proven by displaying her intellect instead of just throwing the exact same words back and then making the statement that adults “have no idea what it’s like to be 17.” Instead of offering a mature response, she chooses to make a fallacious argument littered with curse words, and just makes herself sound ignorant and bratty. What if, instead, she had merely said: “It’s frustrating to be seen as an ignorant kid whose opinions are ignored and not considered. I may not know everything, but I do have ideas and intellect. I shouldn’t be immediately dismissed because of my age. Adults receive my peers as though they have never been 17 themselves. It’s a difficult age, especially with today’s social media and constant presence, but we still deserve to be heard.” Essentially what she’s trying to say, but in a much more mature manner, much more likely to garner positive responses than “adults don’t know shit.” Granted, I remember being 17 and my response probably would have fallen somewhere in between hers and the above text.
I actually saw the guy standing over the yellow line before I even noticed the girls.
#18 - Why would I pay nearly $40 for this when I could just use an old pillow case and a large embroidery hoop? Or just a pillow case? #23 - This looks like it would just fall over.
It’s a USB jump drive that looks like a key fob.
While “egg” is technically a noun, here is it acting as an adjective describing the type of McMuffin. Since you cannot pluralize adjectives, the only plural available is “egg McMuffins”.

I feel so bad for the guy on the right in that second ad! His shoe caught on fire!!
#10 is just a realistic tile mosaic of boobs.
The letter R appears twice in that poster.
Why do you need to make a video that’s just a list of recipes…?
This is what I was going to point out. However, the article does not anywhere state that Kamm is being descriptive, while the “grammar pedants” are being prescriptive. They are indeed two different approaches, so to have an article where you are basically saying “the people of the prescriptive approach are wrong, and I’m going to prove it by using a descriptive approach” is counter intuitive.
I think that is not the same creature. Just a picture of an alive, in-tact one for reference… the head doesn’t even look the same.
#33 looks like a great way for my dog to even more easily get into the garbage.
That one isn’t as bad as the others. They missed the apostrophe in “tomorrow’s hangover”
I needed an indifferent option for some of these. Never watched Friends and don’t know the “serial” podcast.
So sometimes the answer is “yes” when it’s “incredibly rare” but sometimes the answer is “no” because it’s “incredibly rare”?
I don’t think you know what “asymmetrical” means.
Uh, how is a live action film composed of characters who are mostly wild animals gonna work? Terrible, excessive CGI?
I like how he has a book called “Joe Hill” because that’s the pen name his son goes by.
#13 - Ariel??
100% of these movies feel like they are 10 years old. In fact, it’s more surprising that some of them are only 10 years old.
Now I have way too many expectations if I receive a box with an obviously easily removable lid…
I can only imagine how weird and dated all those branded logos will be in 10 years.
“Some surprising major offenders include pasta sauce, salad dressing, low-fat yogurts, and protein bars, to name a few.” Why is that surprising? Sugar cuts the acidic levels in pasta sauce, yogurt and protein bars are sweet, as are many salad dressings.
I feel like this quiz is mostly geared towards males. What girl doesn’t have a collarless shirt? Or anyone who has a t-shirt… ?
Why would you title your post “Do you like pulp?” (Yes = Pulp is good; no = pulp is bad) but then have the question reversed (Yes = pulp is bad; no = pulp is good)?? What?
