    Re: The "Really ?!?!?!?!" Thread

    Decided to wear my Rupes Detailing Academy polo shirt to work today:



    Now in general my wife dislikes my detailing shirts, but when I walked out today she told me I looked like I was part of a NASCAR pit crew. Thanks sweetie! Now to get her back: I`m going wear my Rupes shirt to my in-laws annual Labor day picnic. She`ll looooove that!

    Noting that in certain circumstances IRL, I kinda cuss like Samuel L. Jackson in a Tarantino flick...Gee, I`m surprised to see "pissed" used like that. So much for Jalopnik, that level of writing turns me right off, as does the apparently pejorative use of "Genius Investors".

    Oh boy, the Geniuses vs. the Rich! Pass the nachos, Beavis!

    Eh, a lot of stuff from AP sounds more like editorializing than reportage these days, but that`s still kinda surprising.

    Did the article go on to offer a rationale for "should not" or explain why it`s "not an easy call"?

    That ended 20 years ago. It`s easier and has more purpose based outcome when people are spoon fed information in the form of pre determined/desired vision.

    Simultaneously, the quality of the writing has plummeted, which I sometimes suspect is a case of playing to the Audience..mustn`t condescend to the sheeple by being grammatical.

    The quality has dropped but think the speed has increased. When you actually write, you may be a bit more careful since you can just backward or rework on the fly. Just think some of Trump`s tweets will end up in history books...

    I always marvel at how well executed handwritten letters were way back when- artful use of language, proper spelling, no corrections and gorgeous penmanship. The TIME that took...and this was back when folks didn`t have today`s leisure time.

    Just think some of Trump`s tweets will end up in history books...
    I just hope it doesn`t normalize the [stuff] he says and/or the way he says it. "Oh, it`s OK...even the President talks like that."
