What sentence ends with "I've"?

Anyway, to the point about voting--it's a mass vs. individual thing. It's hard, as an individual, to think your vote will make a difference--even if that's just to close the margin a little. You'd have to feel that you can inspire a whole mass of voters onto your side before feeling that you can make a difference.

...we hear about the wage gap, the idea that women are paid significantly less than men--seventy two cents on the dollar--that's absolute shear nonesense--it is absolute nonesense--in 147 out of 150 of the biggest cities in America, women make 8% more money than men do in their peer group. That wage gap is growing, not shrinking.

If he had put the "I've" within quotes, it would have been acceptable, yes?
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

I'm so amazing, aren't I?

Anyway, no one ever answered my question of where I went wrong. So what am I to think that one isn't desired?When I took a picture of myself with my cell phone, and then sent it to my email contact, it never got there for some reason. There must be something I failed to do. I'm not too technologically sound i know.

Arcturus:
Not bad, not bad at all. pretty good actually, of what i can see. And now you are even more a mystery to me. Do you have red hair. You would appear to have a red goatee or beard. Nice mouth. I always notice the mouth on a man. Just the right amount of knowledge but so much more left to the imagination lends itself to mystery.
One thing though...you might shut the bathroom door before the picture was taken.
Were you in the army or some branch of the armed forces? :-k


I was in the army a short spell when I was nineteen but was later discharged for reasons I don't like discussing. I never saw any combat or anything. I almost did.

My rank and clearance was nothing significant.

I went into the military mostly with a mercenary mental framework.

Yeah, that whole bathroom bit was an accident. Didn't know the door was left open until after I took the picture.

I have blonde hair and a red goatee. That's being French and German for you.

A mystery, huh?

She is black, mentally...

She is like an innocent child, without thoughts of her own, yet. Her mind is void, empty. While mine is full and overflowing.

I posted that picture because I sent it to Erik a while back, and yesterday he decided to use it to blackmail me, as though he actually had something on me that I would like to keep secret.

Very silly boy.
