Ouch, kinetic, you made my brain hurt. Please stop with the incessant babbling of yours before I bleed out my ears and eyes.

Bonus points to whomever knows the literary reference of this thread's title...without Googling it.

Speaking of "Googling," I'm increasingly flummoxed by the modern trend of "gerunding"---turning every noun into a gerund. It started with 'access' as a transitive verb, and has been going downhill ever since.

EDIT: I also want to state that I don't get all this "text speak" as its called. If your going to say something, say it right and don't be so dang lazy about it. The occasional "lol" is acceptable though.

It doesn't bother me as long as I can understand what you're saying. I make lots of typos and grammatical errors myself...

I guess I'm used to it since most of my family can't speak English well.
