Well, they say you learn something new every day, but that doesn’t always mean it’s anything useful.
I learned today that you can’t convince a Hillary supporter that Hillary’s shit stinks even if you rub their noses right in it, but I sort of knew that already.
I learned that people who point out other people’s grammatical and spelling mistakes are jerks and nobody likes them. It’s like scientifically proven, I guess. I didn’t go deeper than the headline. It’s a bit disturbing, because they’re talking about me.
When you’re commenting on the internet, you are commenting in public. That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to bring your A game with every comment, it’s not a competition, but it’s in public. You don’t want to disgrace yourself.
Writing could of instead of could have is the equivalent of picking your nose on the bus. Everybody can see at a glance that you are a slovenly cretin. Writing lose with a double o is the equivalent of walking down the block with your mouth open, and a bit of drool coming out. It’s clear you don’t understand the world around you. People cross the street.
So, learn these things, people.
Then I learned about Salticidae, which is the largest class of spider with over 500 species. They can jump, and they are, even by the standards of spiders, seriously ugly. A friend of mine is interested in them.
I learned today that my friend is weird.
