4634699672_892394b63a_z

Steampunk is all the rage these days, harkening back to the Victorian era and marrying that aesthetic with modern ingenuity. Each year, the Maker Faire sees numerous Steampunk creations as participants parade around in fancy dress. Here are some of the Steampunk-themed vehicles that were shown off at the event.

  • Safi Ahmed Memon

    Its not different grammar. Its different wording.

  • fucku

    “u” are an individual. so yeah its KIND OF different grammar.

  • Sandra

    Oh my god. Even the statement in the defense of poor grammar contains poor grammar.

  • Mike Fraser

    defence

  • Sandra

    Thanks Mike. However, both ‘defense’ and ‘defence’ are entirely accurate.

  • Throc

    It’s grammar because saying “How can you…” is grammatically incorrect. Should be “How can one…” or, as they used in the example, “How can an individual… .” If you type in “How can you…,” most of the same suggestions come up. But, yes, improper spelling definitely contributed to the thematic suggestions.

  • Anon

    No, actually defence is wrong. I’m surprised he didn’t notice the red squiggles under it either. The closest word to defence would be ‘de-fence’ which has a clear meaning.

  • Brandon Harden

    Actually, Mike is correct. Take into account that certain countries can spell the same word slightly differently and still be correct in either case. Defence how it is spelt (or spelled, if you want to spell said word in the American dialect of English) in all many other forms of English whereas Defense is spelt in the American dialect of English.

  • Question.

    how can you say that?

  • Question.

    No, Defense or Defence are both acceptable and do vary based on which dialect of English you are talking about or in which country you are in. Example, colour and color in Canada vs. America respectively. Therefore, Mike is incorrect.

  • Question.

    Also…google takes into account the SPECIFIC wording of a sentence, that’s not to say that the wording is grammatically incorrect, that would be a false conclusion to draw. If I want to ask specifically you a question, or direct a question AT a group of people (because you is a singular and plural term), then I can say: “How can you reduce global warming?” The answer, should include reference to the individual since the question is directed at them, if not, they failed to specifically answer the question.

  • Rachel

    It’s not grammatically incorrect. “you” is a legitimate widely recognised colloquial impersonal pronoun. Everybody has used it at least once if they live in the current english speaking world. It is not incorrect grammar.

  • Iain Perkins

    Defence and colour are the correct ways to spell these words, individuals in occupied South Canada are regrettably unaware how to spell the Queen’s English.
