Why would you want to spend $29.95 on a regular $4 power strip that has
two or three 25 cent MOVs in it, and won't do anything because the
ground isn't adquate or entirely missing? Oh, yeah, it does do one
thing: it gives you a false sense of security.
----------------(from OED Mini-Dictionary)-----------------
PUNCTUATION - Apostrophe
Incorrect uses: (i) the apostrophe must not be used with a plural
where there is no possessive sense, as in ~tea's are served here~;
(ii) there is no such word as ~her's, our's, their's, your's~.
Confusions: it's = it is or it has (not 'belonging to it'); correct
uses are ~it's here~ (= it is here); ~it's gone~ (= it has gone);
but ~the dog wagged its tail~ (no apostrophe).
