I was trying to type “karaoke” into a text message. I had “karaok” all typed out using my phone’s predictive text feature, but when I typed the last “e”, the phone changed the word I had typed, ironically, to “Japanld.” I don’t know what the “LD” part is about, but the Japan thing was funny. Also, what word that starts with “karaok” doesn’t end in “e”?
Later, I realized just how cynical I am when I tried to type “each” into a text message and I saw that my phone had been trained to show “dbag” instead.
I know a guy who speaks entirely in hyperbole. He will eat a chip and call it phenomenal. When aliens land here someday, as far as he is able to communicate, the event will be equal to that chip.
I was making my way back from a friend’s house two nights ago. The weather was warm, no wind, clear view to the moon. Now I prefer to walk neighborhood streets instead of busier traffic lanes to fully enjoy these nights, however, you should know that there has been a recent spate of muggings of young white guys walking alone at night in my area, and I probably should have taken a busier street. But as I said, I did not.
So I was walking along when I heard a sharp crack in a bush ten feet ahead of me. The bush rounded the corner of a house, so that while most of it was visible, a part swung around the house and into a sort-of alley. I didn’t think too much of it, because it could have been many different things and probably was just a rat or cat. And while it would be easy to assume danger was around the corner, I’m a subscriber to Ockham’s Razor and knew that it was most likely nothing of any interest.
That’s when I heard whispers.
Now I knew the crack was not just a rat or cat, but instead the angry smack of a blackjack on a palm, or the break of a pool cue into two impromptu weapons, to be divided among assailants who only had time to grab one weapon before going out to beat and rob. Evil, in some form, sought me from behind that corner…
And yet I continued toward the sounds. That part I will never understand. Was it a weird desire to assert myself in spite of the world? Or maybe an anger at an unfounded fear that needed to be squashed by nothing less than visual proof?
I kept walking. I was three feet away from the corner when another crack rang out, much louder and clearer than before, and I saw that the noiseΩ was not
Wait a minute.
Was that an omega symbol?
Cool! How did I just type that? (I broke two fingers recently so my typing has been off) Ok let’s see, maybe shift plus “O”? O. Nope. How about option plus “O”. ø. Not quite but getting there. I’ll try option plus other stuff. ¡™£¢∞§¶•ªº–≠ COOL! œ∑´®†¥¨ˆøπ“‘«åß∂ƒ©˙∆ Oooh delta! Gotta be here… ˚¬…Ω Oh I see. It’s option plus “Z”! That makes sense.
Well neat! That’s my typing tip of the week. For more tips please visit http://www.fingerworks.com/typing.html
Have a great day!
I’ve been chasing this guy ever since I joined the force. He has no conscience, and he shows no remorse. He’s the mastermind behind numerous bombings and political assassinations. He has a felony record a mile long: murder, arson, kidnapping, terrorism, you name it. He’s the most dangerous and brilliant criminal mind I’ve ever known. For years I’ve been watching him, tracking him, studying his every move. I know his every mannerism, facial tick, gesture. I know him better than he knows himself. And now after all this time, I’ve finally figured out a way to trap him…
I will become him.
Can you spot which five people are uncomfortable?
When it comes to web videos, I don’t have time for any that are longer than five minutes, nor can I be bothered to watch more than 30 or 40 in a row at MOST.
A day will come when a garment is created that is timeless and flattering on everyone.
Then, the following spring, plaid!
One day we will all put aside our differences and link hands to form a chain of brotherhood around the entire earth.
That’s when we’ll defeat those Arabs.
Because my belt was too tight and I was by myself on an elevator, I quickly unfastened and loosened it. Before I could finish, the doors opened and a woman got on. I wonder what she thought I had been doing in there.
A girl I know—my best friend in fact—told me that the way she would like to die would be to know the exact date when it would happen. She said she would put on a beautiful gown and have a great dinner, go dancing, and then make love to her soul mate. After that, she would be happy to die, because it would have followed the best day of her life.
So I killed her on her wedding night. Because you know, pay it forward.
