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.

It's spelled 'batin', you illiterate.

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.

The metric system is more mathematically precise than the Standard English system. It makes calculations much simpler when dealing with stress forces, chemicals, weights, diameters etc. Any engineer worth a damn is going to do all the work in Metric.

Of course, that means the Germans and the Japanese tend to shoehorn their engine compartments like the inside of a Piano Makers toolbox.

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.

Bears repeating then:

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...

Sometimes is awesome though. My favorite typo was instead of "fire marshal" I posted "fire narwhal".

This being a Yahoo reprint of a Daily Caller retread of a Daily Mail article, I'm going to guess that they took what the professor is actually advocating for (and which socioeconomic stratum he's trying to help), ran it through their bowels a few times, picked out the good bits and threw them away, then smeared the rest on a sheet of butcher paper and handed it in to their editor, who repeated the process before stuffing the wet, smelly wad into the "Computer Hole" their IT folks set up to accept their articles.

I could be wrong, though.
