One Word: English.

Dude, how about a little punctuation please? Don't be afraid to use quotation marks when you quote someone. Here's how it should look:

Quote from the Netflix movie Last Kingdom [which I watched earlier this evening]:
"I dream of humping you tonight. It is written in the stars; the gods will it." See, this is why the Celtic empire fell.

Notice how I changed "tonight" in your opening clause to "this evening." I did that to avoid repetition, which often confuses readers.

By the way, you are right to mock the Netflix dialogue. It is pure drivel. But I question whether there was ever a "Celtic Empire". The Celts were certainly far-flung and influential in their own way, but imperial? I think that's a bit of a stretch.

Hahahahaha! I knew I was going to catch hell for correcting that piece, but you know what? It was worth it. There is a chance that Bigwavedave's writing (and that of unknown millions of others) may improve, and your schoolyard name-calling not only leaves me completely unscathed but actually strengthens my resolve. Thank you!

PS: If you really want to honor your Celtic warrior forebears, do not wallow in mediocrity. Instead, defend and uphold their greatest legacy, the English language.

Huh? ?

I watched the two seasons last weekend. When I heard that... well, appropriate for a rough Dane I guess.

I think we were too busy drinking and humping to create an empire in the first place.
