    It shoud be "I hope somebody knows."
    Я взял палку и нож, мелки и бумагу и направился к холмам.

    I thought so too. I have to say, my guesses were:
    can't
    or
    don't
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    But I thought you liked spanking?


    I'd use "cont'd" too, BTW..... "con't" doesn't make a lot of sense....
    Ой, голова у меня кружится |-P ...... and my brain hurts too....

    The aprostrophe in cont'd is to replace "inue" as in continued. What it replaces in con't is to me a mystery.
