Things that are pissing you off. - Page 4350

There is a common myth that QWERTY was actually developed to slow down typists to prevent jamming (usually said in the same breath as mentioning the Dvorak keyboard).

Obviously that's not actually true...it is just, as G says, to make it easier on the machine by splitting up common keys. In fact, this could actually help typing since when you use separated keys, you are probably using different hands/fingers and don't have to wait for one finger to return home.

I have also seen some arguments that the specific choices made for splitting up the keys were related to transcribing morse code...which meant slightly different keys were preferred.

Looks like Scottie Pippen has declared himself the greatest Chicago Bull of all time that is bullshit he is forgetting about No. 23 (Michael Jordan). Maybe Pippen is thinking of Jordan as a Washington Wizard.

You mean that guy who played for the White Sox? I didn't know he played basketball too! A regular ol' Bo Jackson, huh?

There's a new thing I'm going to start doing will make me happy but might get others to PO'd (which is why I'm posting it here). Here's my thinking: "lettuce" is a common word that pert near everyone knows, and so it seems like I should spell similar sounding words similarly. And so from now on I'm going to write "malluce."

Lettuce all follow L'inc's example here
