Has anyone noticed how no one on the boards seems to notice the difference between lose and loose? Windowseat<i/>

Yep. People, 'lose' is when you have misplaced something. 'Loose' is when bindings or knots ar not tight.

YOU CAN NOT USE THESE TERMS INTERCHANGEABLY!

And when people say "Me and him are going out." It's "He and I". The other person(s) go first. Subject case, not object case.
