That's an excellent motto. I keep having to remember something similar when playing Words with Friends. My opponent is a newspaper editor in Indiana. Me? I just draw stuff, and English is my third language, so she wins nine out of ten games...

I don't know how smart the cast members actually are, but I know that I don't always immediately understand all of the science and maths jokes on the show (I'm okay with the humanities though! :D) So, without implying that the cast is as ignorant as I am, I would like to know whether they have ever learned anything new just from having to research the lines in their scripts? And to the writers, on average, how often do you have to kill dialogue you've written because you realise too few people would get it?

You know, if you took the time to look up a word you didn't know how to spell, that already puts you way ahead of most internet users. But I don't think age and lack of practice is entirely to blame. When we see a mistake repeated over and over, and we see that often online, it gets stuck in our brain like a bad Christmas song, and will get called up quicker than the correct form. Which is why I applaud bloggers who look up the correct spelling when they're not sure. *claps* I mean how lazy does one have to be, with Google around? When I was a kid I had to use an orthographic dictionary. Made out of paper.

Thank you! The long-term plan is to perfect them so that I can sell them on Etsy, so hearing 'I want one' is an awesome encouragement :D

As you twittered this, I was Being Excited and Making Something, and reading this only made me More Excited. It'll be ten pm here soon, so I'll have to stop making noise with my router, but what I'm making is going to look something like this thing I made earlier: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cefeida/4014063359/ Thanks for this post. I'm spreading it to people I know who need the kick up the bum.
