    Irony/sarcasm is quite difficult to judge when written down. However, the request (as per the forum rules) still stands that the title should include the words you are querying, and please try to avoid writing all in capitals.

    Did our suggestions help you?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Ok, I will keep it in mind.

    It's "as usual", not "as usually".

    You can always threaten to rip someone's heart out with your bare hands. And show it to them.

    Smile Re: LIKE A REAL MAN

    Or, how about, "This is the part where you fall down and bleed to death"?

    I shall (am going to - or even "gonna", in the heat of a fight) tear you apart!
    I'm going to make you regret the day you were born!


    While in the middle of a fight, you can taunt your opponent:

    "What's the matter? Getting tired?"
    "I'm just warming up, you pathetic worm!"
    Am I supposed to be impressed?
    That's the best you can do?

    etc.


    I hope to have come across as a real man.
    Dear native English speakers of this forum,
    Please, always point out my grammatical mistakes, assuming you have "the time and the inclination". That is really the most effective way for me to improve. Thank you very much.

    Please note that I am NOT an English teacher.

    Truth be told, it's easy to come across as anything on the Internet. In real life, maybe you would taunt me, "Blow away, windbag!", instead of being afraid. But in all honesty, I wouldn't even like to think of fighting with you; I'd very much prefer having a drink together instead.
