But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Hey ears, you do know that "you'll" means "you will", not "you all", right? Keep that in m ind next time someone gives you a confusing answer ...

RE: Earmuffs: You'll and Ya'll
I have a question...in SC I often heard what would be the possessive of y'all. So is that y'all's...are two apostrophes even allowed in one word?Blink

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Of course.

An apostrophe has two jobs: show deletion and show possession.

"y'all's" is correct.

The first apostrophe represents the deletion of the "ou" and the second shows the possession of the collective group.

I think you can even string contractions together like could've'd/would've'd/should've'd = could/would/should have had.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
