That's a very specific "roughly".

I would never of dreamed of

I'm still in grammar mode after posting on another thread, so you'll have to excuse me this.

As I said to whoever was in the chat the other day, this is probably the grammatical mistake that's my real bugbear. It's actually "would have", or equally it's contraction "would've". Regardless of how it may sound (of course, dependent on accent and dialect*), it's never "would of".

Sorry if I sound like I'm being pedantic, but it's a mistake many people don't realise even exists, and which they'll make both when bothering and when not bothering with grammatical accuracy.

*My accent, for example, does differentiate between each (not that I ever have reason to say "would of"). Probably why I don't make the mistake.

yup! that's me: Hook, line and sinker (and wallet to a sizeable extent...)

@cannon monkey, I've had a pissed off neighbour but not cops (although there is one that lives up my street though)

I was first planning to make a ballista to throw golf balls around untill I stubled onto spudfiles and since then I haven't looked back. The thing is, it's all very well to blow up stuff but I'm really more interested in the construction of the cannons.

@Ragnarok, I know u don't like the term "hooked" but I think that I am because for me, building cannons is a bit of an escape and I think awesome to have total creative control over what I create.
