      And this surprises you? Most people from the East think the US ends at the New Jersey turnpike.
      How do they expect us to throw hotdogs at the gophers with that [Expletive deleted] net in front of us?

          Hell, I'm not even from the east coast, and I think the WORLD ends on the New Jersey Turnpike.

              You had to pass this test to go to high school. Think this batch of 8th graders could pass this? Could you?
              Ha, I don't think I could pass it without studying.

              I noticed one question because it came up on a debate at a city council meeting few years ago and they (mostly lawyers) spent 20min+ over amending a bill. replacing "shall" with "will" .... at the end they decided to leave it as is. company (shall will) do xxx supposedly (will) forced company to do xxx while (shall) allowed options for the company.

              So what is the correct usage: I (guess think) I (shall will) go.

                I've always been told "shall" is the generally accepted usage to duty-bind someone to do something in a contract. "Will" is more used just to indicate something that is going to happen, but isn't duty-bound to any of the contractors. "This contract will terminate X days from now."

                "May" is used to denote something being an allowable option. "Should" means you recommend it, but it's not required (most likely due to whatever it is being unable to be quantified.)

                        This is certainly the case in the aerospace industry. "Shall" indicates a contractually binding requirement which must be verified and documented (e.g. The refuel system SHALL refuel the plane in 10 minutes from empty to full). "Will" is simply a statement of intent or a goal/desire which may not be verifiable (e.g. The refuel system WILL be easy to use).

                        Within a requirements document, each SHALL is numbered so that it can be linked to its verification plans, procedures, and documentation, and so that lower-level requirements (e.g. in the requirements document for a pump) can be traced to higher-level requirements (for the fuel system). There's an entire sub-field within Systems Engineering just having to do with requirements management - a typical aircraft design program will have probably around 100 people who just track SHALLs for a living.
                        If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                          God bless RTMs! Now for real excitement, tell us about BOEs!

                          (If you had told me at age ten I would be doing this for a living, I'd have shot myself.)

                          BTW, I'd love to see a SOW or Proposal with "may" in it. "We may do that... or... we may not." The way "mayness" is generally expressed in our industry is "The Contractor shall use industry best practices in selecting...," which basically means, "we'll let you figure it out as you go along, and that may or may not be the way we expect you to do it. If anything goes wrong, see you at the deposition."
