Freschel: And this is why "Idiocracy" is closer than we thought. All we need is someone to make "Ow, My Balls" and "Ass"./ Now go way baiting.
Snarfangel: hitlersbrain: Actually, spelling is so farked up that "learning" it is probably bad for a kids brain anyway. There's more important stuff to learn, like critical thinking, math and science.The funny thing is, many of the people apparently baffled by the English system of measurements are just fine with the English system of spelling and grammar, which may I point out is a damn sight more confusing./Nothing against the metric system, which was state-of-the-art for the 18th century, but can we fix the most confusing spelling and grammar rules, too? Though, through, cough, rough, plough, ought, borough -- come on, you are going to give little kids an aneurysm.

timbrr_wolf: My daughter is going into the 2nd grade, the school is not going to be teaching her "handwriting" because they say she wont need or use it. The teachers are are also not worried about her spelling in stories that she writes. When i asked them about this, they said that most things are written on computers and she won't need to worry about. Thank God for public education.
Jabberwookiee: davidphogan: The problem is that autocorrect only works if you're close enough to the right word for it to figure out what you meant.Oddly enough, that's what makes it so infuriating sometimes. You know, for those of us who care...
Bedstead Polisher: Semi-related: I heard one of the upper managers at work say the other day, "are we in agreeance?"
