    Y'all are going to make my head explode. I don't remember ever putting a comma before the and. Gut I understand totally what you're saying.

    I have a question for you. It involves too and either. Which one do I use for the following statements?: "That's why I'll never go skydiving. Too many things can go wrong. That's why I'll never go bungee jumping _____" Do I say too or either after bungee jumping?

    either But I couldn't give you the grammatical definition of why.
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    I do believe it would be either.... but then again grammar & punctuation were never my strong suits

    I go with either on this one too!

    I think it just sounds better.

    I think it's either because it's a choice between two alternatives.

    Use "either" and if someone has a problem with it, they need to get a life.
    Count your blessings!

    "I neither skydive nor bungee jump; too many things can go wrong."
    But who the h@!* talks that way?
