"Text Speak"

Why? This is the only question I can ask myself when someone sends me an email containing " hi how r u? im gr8! wats new w/ u? lol " I find this a horrible and confusing mess of letters and numbers that should never have crossed paths.

All the letters are in lower case. Some words contain numbers and some are shortened so badly it makes me weep for the next generation. Also what is the point of that unneeded "lol"? This is not English.

Sometimes I'm unsure whether if I'm…

Dumbest Generation -- Part 1

This post is mostly in response to the article '8 reasons why this is the dumbest generation' that another nerdfighter posted for discussion earlier. Could they have picked a more offensive title? But even though I find the idea that our generation is dumber than all the rest pretty ridiculous, I find that some of his ideas have merit. I'll go through them all here.



1. They make excellent "Jaywalking'' targets

I've seen "Jaywalking" several times. And I know that not… Continue

Things

My life has been incredibly busy as of late due mainly to the fact that I have started a youtube channel with my Friend Kassi.

At the moment I'm reading Allen Ginsburg's poetry which is so amazing, I'm obsessed now I'm gonna have to read all the Beat books I can find!

In which 'We Are Australian' has new meaning.

Some of you may remember that I wrote a rant about Australia Day, condemning the treatment of the Aboriginal people in Australia, the rightful members of this land (one of my favourite slogans: 'Man belongs to Earth; Earth does not belong to man'). Anyway., the treatment of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders was despicable. About three generations of children were taken from their families, and brought up 'the proper way'. What is the 'proper way'? Some of them were taken at such a… Continue
