It's a folly to underestimate competitors and enemies. (Political
opponents come to mind). But you're implying that it can be a folly
to underestimate you. I don't have any reason to estimate your
ability at all, but should I guess wrong (under or over) - my life
will continue as before.

You need to check. I think one of those boards you're sitting on is
sticking up and has penetrated your brain from beneath. And have your
humility checked while you're at it. It sucks, dude.

In about 6th grade we students here in the US were taught the
difference between "your" and "you're."
"You're" is a contraction of "you are." And that makes your sentence
I don't know whether they offer "bonehead" 6th grade grammar in
Canada??? But you should do something like that before you make more
posts that reveal your ignorance.

Yes, Larry. Sometimes when the fingers are typing away on automatic,
they type a sequence that you hadn't intended.
