You can choose your friends but you can't choose your family (unless you're part of some wierd cult or something)
but surely the choice part of friends is an advantage :confused:

Maybe the ultimate question is do you have to put a , infront of 'and' or does the and act as a breathing space and therefore there isn't a need for a , ? :rolleyes: lol
Nah, because it's different in different situations...

No, you need a comma.

What is the ultimate question in this thread, I'm starting to think it is 'what is the ultimate question?'

It depends on the context.

So in what context is it ok and when is it not?

C'mon, I need teaching here, you're challenging one of the foundations of my essay-writing skills with this!

family = friends you are related to or people you don't like who related to to you ie who care about the 'related' bit?

I like eating burgers and chips, and I do so every Friday. Work it out from there :p: (minus comma, it would imply that I like eating "I do so every Friday" :eek: ).

If it isn't part of a list I think you can, something like: you can do this, that, or this, and in case you don't like these options, you can do it like this

but if it is a list then you can't: I want this, that and that

(I'm not a native speaker so you might not want to listen to me though)

edit: nevermind, somebody answered faster...

Er...Are you kidding? This is the most boring tsr conversation and u are taking the pi55. Anyway, if you are making 2 points in a sentence and the first is separated by commas then u can use 'and' for the second point. Does that make any sense? I really hope so :rolleyes:

Whoops really sorry! I just realised how harsh that sounded. I didn't mean to patronise you and it was stupid of me.
