Q: Possible meanings of "IN CASE OF FIRE, DO NOT USE ELEVATOR."

user13651701Background Below are cited from pp. 14-15 of Introduction to Mathematical Thinking by Keith Devlin: You often see the following notice posted in elevators: IN CASE OF FIRE, DO NOT USE ELEVATOR. Obviously this notice is intended to mean: If there is a fire, do not use a elevator. But the wri...

@EddieKal This is what a rude/spam post looks like to high rep users:
JR and I both were editing out the nasty stuff, but it wasn’t really necessary unless the text was so extensive or abusive we didn’t want to have to look at it ourselves.

@ColleenV Roger!
Didn't know that. Thanks!

Hello peepul
Anyone here who can help with phrases?
I have many doubts that will be too broad for questions
 
@Usernew Hi, sure
 
She tells you to dance like no one is watching. Here, the infinitive phrase has no direct object?
I am confused as the site marks " to dance like no one is watching" as an infinite phrase
So, is "like no one is watching" modifier?
@M.A.R. lost in the molecules?
 
7:02 PM
@Usernew Chatting in five different places, sorry
 
I think I’m in the wrong place.........
 
@M.A.R. Different molecules assigned to different chat rooms. Ah! Same old MAR
 
No problem
 
@DevilsbestfriendisLunar Which chatroom are you looking for?
@DevilsbestfriendisLunar Very Canadian of you
@Usernew Honestly I've forgotten about all the terminology. Can't your question have something to do with parasites and amino acids and anticholinergic drugs?
 
7:04 PM
What? Oh well I was looking for the Minecraft chat room, which was right by this one and I accidentally tapped this one
That took me a while to type
The chat room is called Minecraft talk
How do I leave?
 
@DevilsbestfriendisLunar You can search for it in chat home (chat.stackexchange)
 
@M.A.R. of course!
 
@DevilsbestfriendisLunar There's a button below the room description on the upper right corner
 
Okay. I found it. Thanks! @M.A.R.
Site rooms?
or all rooms?
 
@Usernew So isn't like whatever is after "like" is a complement, rather than a modifier, for "like"? And I totally forgot how analysis works for infinitives
But you could call it an apple pie for all it matters
 
7:09 PM
Never mind found it sorry
 
@DevilsbestfriendisLunar All rooms. Or you can search for rooms from a site, then browse there
 
@M.A.R. yeah, a student raised a doubt, and quite honestly, my brain is not the same anymore.
And phrases were never a strong point for me.
I hate them
Well I hope all are doing fine amidst this corona stuff
 
Ok. Thank you @M.A.R.
 
@DevilsbestfriendisLunar tips hat
You're gonna leave and come back whenever I ping you, don't you
@Usernew So that was the exact question? What is the class about? It sounds a bit irrelevant to learning English, it just seems like a sentence analysis exercise
 
Most likely
sorry, my account just has a teal number, I was made to have curiosity. So my curiosity won me over. Here I am typing this and sorry for disturbing you
 
7:18 PM
@M.A.R. nah! Plenty of questions. Bu all related to phrases. It's all about exercises.
 
If you pin me, your choice completely, I will ignore it. Good day. Or afternoon.
 
No no problem, I'm the one tingling your curiosity
And I'm not pinging you not to keep you here any longer. This is one of the odd days when I don't feel like trolling people
 
@M.A.R. You just trolled that guy!
 
Hush, very mildly
 
@M.A.R. [insert table flip]
@M.A.R. speaking of which, Parasite is a nice movie.
jeez
 
7:23 PM
ಠ_ಠ
@Usernew Ooooh yes it is!
I loved that guy before it was cool
 
@M.A.R. you liked what guy?
the protagonist?
hello @EddieKal
 
Bong Joon Ho
But yeah, "that guy" is also a commoner in cool Korean movies
 
I saw The Host a long long time ago.
@M.A.R. pretty much
 
Korean cinema just sometimes amazes you
Oldboy
The New World
 
The wailing
@M.A.R. I think it did more than just amaze me
 
7:30 PM
Train to Busan
 
Snowpiercer
Why one one has ever made a movie that has an avalanche of misunderstandings all stemming from a misquotation or misunderstanding of the English language.
Well, I hope the answer comes in my sleep
Will sleep
Good Night all!

S..
Hi. Anyone here?
 
9:27 PM
@S.. Yes?
 
S..
Thanks for replying, @EddieKal.
I was looking for a word, but got it already.
 
@S.. Okay, no problem. You are welcome to hang out here anytime
 
S..
Sure.
 
@Usernew Sorry was AFK, just saw this. That's indeed an infinitive phrase functioning as the object of the verb
@Usernew the phrase is a nominal infinitive, so I don't understand what you mean its direct object

@EddieKal Yeah that was confusing me too
@Usernew Wait, they have, I think

Though of course it's often just the one gag in an almost funny sitcom
