Did you use technology to get into mischief as a child?

Of course you can - that's why the only winning move is not to play!

Bah, I can't even post a correction properly. Make it "THEY WOULD" and I'd have had it right!

Senate Approves the ______Act Of____

slgrimes Re:Ugh! (571 comments)

Allow me to correct that for you: "If the Zombies are after brains, the WOULD steer clear of Washington, D.C.". Hell, it'll probably be the safest place in the country once the zombies start swarming: after all, you don't go looking for apples in a pear tree. You are welcome!

Sentence Spacing — 1 Space or 2?

slgrimes Re:2. Duh. But... (814 comments)

I've been in front of a keyboard for the last 20 years (thankfully not the entire 20 years - I get up to use the bathroom every now and then), but never noticed what my thumbs were doing when I hit the spacebar - I just hit the spacebar. Someone else actually noticed me doing it & wondered why, and I've been wondering ever since. Could be something I've only started doing recently, but suspect it's how I've typed all along & just never realized.

Sentence Spacing — 1 Space or 2?

slgrimes Re:2. Duh. But... (814 comments)

Actually, I like that reason - makes sense, my right hand is "busy" with the period, so my left hand steps up. I'm a righty by default, so maybe that's why my right hand handles between words - just force of habit to default right first? Thanks Rainmayun!

Read the rest of the comments to my comment: I put 2 spaces, but HTML renders it as 1. Not my fault!

slgrimes Re:2. Duh. But... (814 comments)

If I didn't put 2 spaces after a sentence, it was a typo, not intentional.

Sentence Spacing — 1 Space or 2?

slgrimes 2. Duh. But... (814 comments)

I always put 2 spaces at the end of a sentence. Oddly, though, I've noticed that when I type, if it's a space between words I use my right thumb. For the end of my sentence, I use my left one. Something I didn't even realize I did until about 6 months ago, and I've been doing this for about 20 years!

In the U.S. election just ended, I voted ...

slgrimes Re:Missing Option (709 comments)

Not an option for this poll, but one I'd love to see in elections in general - None of the Above. If that option gets the most votes, new election with neither candidate allowed to try again (similar to how I remember it working in Brewster's Millions, though it's been a while & my memory isn't always spot on). I know, unrealistic given the lengthy 18+ month process we endure now...but I bet it would get at least 10% of the vote every time...especially in local elections.
