A take on Roald Dahl’s “Matilda” I did earlier this year!
This is so cute.
why is it so hard to get how awful you are when you refuse to apologize?
YOU DIDN’T MEAN TO HIT SOMEONE WITH A CAR DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T GO TO JAIL FOR MANSLAUGHTER
If you accidentally step on some one’s toes, you apologize. It’s just common sense - you obviously didn’t stomp on their toes on purpose, but you HURT THEM regardless. The same courtesy should be there when you accidentally hurt some one emotionally, too. You didn’t mean to, but that doesn’t change what happened. Apologize sincerely, make an effort to never do it again, and do NOT continue to sit there repeating “but I didn’t mean to” over and over again. They know that, but their toes still fucking hurt.

If only there were one for reticulated splines, the set would be complete!
when people say “i dont believe in science”
what are you even talking about
we’re taking a group of people who have insider knowledge of the English language (or at least a good grasp of it) and placing them in a new, unfamiliar, virtual space. This space introduces visual aids to language in the form of photos and gifs, the ability to comment on someone else’s text in a reblog and the ability to communicate a lot of information in very few words using hashtags. We also see the creation of tone in a toneless medium. In order to simulate conversational patterns in writing we SHOUT WHEN WE’RE SUPER EXCITED or *psssst whisper when we’re pretending to tell someone a secret while perfectly aware that anyone on the internet can read what we’re saying.* slash the coolest bit tho is that u can like ironically forgo all capitalization and punctuation just write in a weird speech pattern its ok everyone will still understand maybe it even helps read the text more quickly because nothing is interrupting the flow of words
In short, this dialect results when people who already share a language are given new tools. The result isn’t a butchering of English language but a creative experiment with it. Am I claiming that the Internet as a whole is operating on a level of postmodernism that would make Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon seem like novices? maybe i am maybe im not u punk wut of it like who r u to tell me otherwise
