  1. When you're typing a paper do you leave two spaces after a period? is it proper, not, or doesn't matter? I was taught this way and 75% of people I asked were too, and never had problems at school til recently
     
  2. never heard of that.
     
  3. I try to leave more than two spaces between me and a girl who is on her period
     
  4. It's standard practice. At least, it should be. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>
     
  5.  
  6. Single space. Always.
     
  7. Two spaces at the end of a sentence is correct.
     
  8. I always do. Even when I type here usually.
     
  9. That's how I've always done it. Dunno if it's right.
     
  10. Always keep away two paces from a girl during her period.
     
  11.  
  12.  
  13. then why don't you now?
     
  14. Guffaw etc.
     
  15. I think I used to do it, but not anymore.
     
  16. Highlight the selected text, I did there.
     
  17. Isn't the dot enough?
     
  18. i dont see anything.
     
  19. seriuosly lolwut.
     
  20. SCN doesn't like the double space, it appears. It's the proper way to do things though.
     
  21. I was taught to do this way back in the day but don't anymore.
     
  22. Even MS Word know that's not the case.
     
  23. On papers I always do it, just to be correct and the filler doesn't hurt either.

    I remember it being hammered into me in elementary (didn't they make it official grammar just in the 90s?).
