OT: Do you recite or type your posts?

Submitted by Blue boy johnson on April 30th, 2013 at 4:19 PM

Do you recite or type your posts? Most likely if you recite your post, it is done in combination with typing?

Where is this headed and what does it portend? I like reciting my posts if I speak clearly, but until I can edit the mistakes easier, reciting is going to have limitations.

For the first time in my life I feel like some sort of low grade thespian, but I get a a cheap thrill out of people looking at me funny when I am talking to my phone and bellow out words like; "Semi Colon", "Comma", Question Mark", "Period", "EXCLAMATION POINT".

Trust me, if you say out loud in public, "I love you baby... exclamation point", you will get some snickers.

If anybody has insights on this technology, I would love to hear them EXCLAMATION POINT

It's getting so you can't tell the crazy people from the sane anymore.  Is that guy walking around in front of the store talking to himself? Does he think he's communicating with aliens? Is he shaking his fist at god? Or is it just Gordie sending another missive to MGoBlog?

I had to call the Michigan Philosophy Dept. and it went to voicemail. I left the following message, "if you leave a message on a philosophy dept. answering machine and there is nobody there to hear it, did you really leave a message. The point-- so fucking what!

I'll keep checking youtube & break for hilarious videos posted from random people videotaping you as you recite posts to your phone like a silly fool. 

As far as my own personal text input preferences, Swype is my jam. I can pretty much swype faster than I can type on a full size keyboard. Granted, I type like I'm all elbows, but I'm practically the Cortez f**king Peters of Swype.

That said, for quite a while now, the app on my android keeps crashing whenever I click post and I can't get anything to stick. Anyone else having problems?

I chisel my posts in granite.

I then take the tablet to this young guy who has this stuff he calls moveable typeface and puts it on paper. I then take the paper to this really hip young guy who works at a new place called Western Union. He telegraphs my post to a young whippersnapper who has a box that looks at the telegraph and converts it into, well, magic I guess, cause there is the post in the light box.
