Spellcheck is killing English, now check this...

I was reading recently how English, as a language has been hampered in in its evolution, it appears since people are using the spellcheck function a little bit too much and because of this there is a little bit of word death going on.

Now i will lit you in on a little secret, i'm sure some of you might have already known this, but i like spelling mistakes, if you understand the word, even though you spell the word incorrectly, it stands, on cricket, it's a score, it's in, chalk it up umpire!

How the human mind interprets a word, have you thought about it, you look at the first letter and the last letter, we dont read whole words, so why would spelling be important? Except if your a stickler for the details, now are you ?

Leonard Cohen says:
Drop perfection, there are cracks in everything, thats how the light gets in

Now, i will let you in on a little secret, i like Pigeon English, it's not business English, but i'm in the business of people, it counts, Tom Robbins uses characters that speak Pigeon English in his book,Villa Incognito, Chuck Palahniuk wrote a book in Pigeon English, it must of drove him bonkers, i love that he did it, but i couldn't read it, but i like the fact that he did it, it counts, respect and goal!!

Every now and again, i get a mail from a German guy i met in the Galapagos, which i love reading, and i put them here for you to read, maybe you might get a kick out of them too, maybe not. I think they are great and wholly original. Boom! No spellcheck, words evolve.

I like reading my old stuff and i can see mistakes and how i would do it different now, but i have evolved, since i started, and this is the point, i will get better and better and what you see is what you get, with very little editing, thats how i felt at that particular time.

Goal!!! The crowd roars!!!

Now check out Olaf, and watch some good old fashioned evolution, right before you very eyes!!
