Mensagem: 

O Marcio esmagou uma data de moscas and should have blood on his hands by now.

 

Eu só queria acrescentar:

<<We don't want to go to London, but they do. / I don't want to go to London, but they want.>>

Se optar pela segunda frase, tem que terminar com 'to go'

É porisso que usamos 'do' na primeira opção: evita repetir as mesmas coisas.

 

<<I don't think the bank doesn't open today. / I don't think the bank isn't open today. / I don't know the bank isn't opened today?>>

Não fica bonito usar 2 negativas.

Opções : I don't think the bank will open today
               I think the bank won't open today

               I don't think the bank is open today

               I think the bank isn't open today.

               I don't know IF the bank is open today.
