    I’m pretty sure this thread will die. If it ever even comes to life.

    I’m pretty sure it will receive at least 2 posts.

    I’m pretty sure it will be more than that.

    I’m pretty sure you’re both right.

    I’m pretty sure I can say that you are also right.

    #32804

    Awkward Potato

    I’m pretty sure that means I can say, “yay!”

    #32805

    Awkward Potato

    I’m also pretty sure this thread is currently pointless. Oh well.

    #32810

    I’m pretty sure we can talk about whatever, though.

    #32816

    Awkward Potato

    I’m pretty sure that is true.

    I’m pretty sure that “pretty” is a uniquely English synonym for “quite”.

    #32821

    Awkward Potato

    I’m pretty sure I remember reading that in England, “quite” is used to mean “a little” instead of “a lot,” although I’ve only read it one place so that might be inaccurate.

    I’m pretty sure “quite” can either mean “utterly” or “somewhat”, depending on context. Both definitions appear if you google the word.

    #32829

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    I’m pretty sure that it still means that I can’t call a girl quite, though.

    #32831

    I’m pretty sure you could, but she would most likely be confused.

    I’m pretty sure you could call her “quiet”, “quick”, or “quaint” instead (depending on the individual being described).

    #32835

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    I’m pretty sure that would definitely depend on the individual, and quaint could potentially be taken as somewhat derogatory.

    I’m pretty sure “quaint” has a 100% positive connotation, but any of those adjectives could be considered derogatory depending on the individuals involved with the conversation.

    #32841

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    I’m pretty sure it also depends on tone.

    #32844

    I’m pretty sure it depends on contextual information, as English is not a tonal language.

    I’m pretty sure that post will be one I regret posting.

    #32847

    Awkward Potato

    I’m pretty sure I thought it was funny, so it’s fine. I regret posting things occasionally too.

    #32848

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    I’m pretty sure sarcasm relies pretty heavily on tone.

    I’m pretty sure that Josiah is correct on English tonality, but context matters more, especially when trying to communicate via writing.

    I’m pretty sure I just made a fool of myself at a festival…

    I’m pretty sure a “sarcastic punctuation mark” would be handy in modern writing sometimes.

    I’m pretty sure I just heard Kevin say “FESTIVAL” when I read Mason’s post.

    #32859

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    I’m pretty sure yes, writing makes things significantly more difficult.

    #32983

    Awkward Potato

    I’m pretty sure I want to know what Masøn did that he thought was foolish

    #32986

    Josiah the Carrot Stick

    I’m pretty sure I want to know where all these random posters are coming from.

    I’m pretty sure I had to ‘Act’ and embarrass myself and now all of my mom’s Facebook friends know…
