Coherent growing sentences for a prize! (in Contests)
September 24 2005 3:08 AM EDT
O.K., 50k is up for grabs to whoever can make the longest sentence beginning with a single-letter word and increasing by one letter from word to word. This will form a sort of 'word pyramid'. Sentences must be structurally correct, though they must not necessarily make sense. For example:
On a side note, I'm quite impressed with myself for what I just did.
Begin the contest!

That's about all the farther I think I can go. Well, at least before it loses its sentence structure. That was kinda fun.

Too many mis-spelled words! The following were not recognized: backdating repatriated bioluminescent interstratified faintheartedness I checked these words and they are correct spelling. Thanks

- it lost sentence structure there. As for the one I recently posted from the CM, I simply posted it to show the effort - the sentence structure stopped quickly.

G, I don't even know what to say.

It SHOULD be structurally correct...
September 24 2005 3:20 PM EDT
Er there should be commas in places, you should know where.
