Empathy from me, unsurprisingly.

The plummeting of standards of use of English worries me. I would class myself as being merely competent with English and yet, as you point out, I stand out like a sore thumb. I often see fundamental errors in things written by professionals, errors that a moderately well educated 10 year old should be able to avoid. I'm not talking about fine points of grammatical style. I'm talking about very basic use of language.

Amongst people in general, semiliteracy is actively embraced as an ideal to such an extent that it's normal to call anyone who gives a damn about language a Nazi.

Human language requires a certain degree of complexity in order to be able to convey human thought. Dumbing down language effectively stifles thought, a fact that Orwell used as the basis for Newspeak in 1984. It's disturbing that such a thing is being imposed by popular demand, more disturbing than its use in Orwell's dystopia.

Wow Angillion - I have to say, aside from your remarks, I've grown more and more accustomed lately to seeing errors in grammar, punctuation, spelling (your/you're) and general word usage to the point that I've almost come to expect it especially when I see problem areas up ahead.

This has to have become insidiously ingrained as of late because when I come across well-written and grammatically immaculate posts/paragraphs such as yours, and see none of the myriad errors I've come to expect, I find my mind trying to correct in FAVOR of these errors that I'm so used to seeing! It's the weirdest reversal of reaction I've ever experienced. See how the greatest common denominator comes to further influence itself downward? Troubling to say the least. Looks like I'll have to stick with the classics for a while or well-written/published authors of integrity where errors still STAND-OUT due to their lack of preponderance, and not the other way around. Any empathy here?

i didn't know human ears were sensitive enough to use echolocation. i will have to try that when i'm in the dark.


Try this experiment:

Close your eyes and try to identify coins solely by touching one surface of them. You probably won't be able to, but a blind person can do so quite easily. Or just try to determine the pattern of dots in braille by touch alone. Same thing applies.

If you're deprived of sight, your brain will adapt over time by paying more attention to other senses. A lesser degree of adaptation can occur quickly (try sex after being blindfolded for even just 10 minutes or so) but the degree of adaptation will increase with a lot of time. I've seen a lecturer who was blind accurately align transparencies on a projector by feeling the ink on them.

So it would be far more difficult for a sighted person to use echolocation than it would be for a blind person to do so.

Why would I feel worthless. I could use light wave bouncing objects to see with my eyes. It works better.

I think the retards mean Daredevil, seeing as he actually did use echolocation.
But I guess we're still trying to forget that film with Ben Affleck eh...

Folks.. By "Batman" they are referring to how bats use echo location. Not everything in life revolves around comic books.

flyingpie, he said he had retinal cancer. That's bound to screw up how your eyes look.
I think I must have seen same/similar show as last-iconOC, since the one I saw was also a teenager who discovered echolocation.
Pretty damn neat feat to learn. Can't beat good ol' sight, but it gets them around for sure!
