An overweight, notably short black man with a B A Baracus style hairdo just ran down the middle of the street carrying a messenger satchel.
I was sat watching TV an hour or so ago and saw him running the other way carrying a shopping back full of bottles of something.
This is not a thing I expected to see.

My first thought when I saw the page we were on in this thread:

"Why, that's approximately (1/((1+sqrt(5))/2))*1000"

I'm upstairs listening to George Jones. My dad is downstairs listening to Katy Perry. This is very strange.

I cannot understand people who have perfect grammar while speaking, but as soon as they touch a keyboard they appear to regress to an elementary school level of grammar. There are a lot of these people. I do not know why.

As an English grad, I can confirm I cannot fathom this phenomenon either o_O

For me, most of the people are consistent with the level of grammar they use. Sadly, that includes the idiots.

As someone who simply enjoys the written language without any sort of academic interest in it, count me in the same group o_o;

i solve that issue by being perfectly, completely, and infallibly inconsistent

Far more annoying is the sort of person who takes a perverse pride in their refusal to use grammar in any situation involving electronic media, despite maintaining an impeccable precision in spoken and written language. For all too many persons, the use of such minor things as punctuation and capitalization somehow offend the very principles of the internet, despite the self-evident fact that omitting such is a grave insult to the ability of the eventual reader to retain comprehension or sanity.

Just as bad is the type who doesn't even consider what another is saying due to a slight lack of grammar (as in, my other way of typing).

Like here.

I mean, I don't give a shit about having to read bad grammar. I can understand why some people don't care on the internet. I mean, I never touch the shift key in IRC.

This is mostly in reference to college papers, where people are definitely trying and still failing to reach the quality of grammar they constantly speak in.
