It's not just on the 'net. It's all over. Idiot reporters pollute their
newspapers' spelling checkers with misspelled words that appear in print
for time to come. Television shows -- even television networks like
Nickelodeon -- misspell words chronically. (Nickelodeon likes to use
the adjective "everyday" in place of the adverb phrase "every day",
setting a wonderful example for their target audience of kids.)

That\'s why stereo has two channels.
It's worse than that. I used to be an excellent speller, but reading
Usenet postings has desensitized me to common errors like incorrect use
of it's vs. its. So now I sometimes make the same errors in my writing
and don't catch them because they no longer stand out like a sore thumb
the way they used to.
Sadly, I also see newspapers and magazines with the same errors, as well
as cases where someone clearly picked an entirely wrong word from the
list that their spelling checker presented to them. Computers make
lousy proofreaders because they don't understand what they're
I know what you are saying. I've seen so many dopes use 'definately'
that I have to think twice as I spell it correctly.
Seeing poor grammar and spelling in major publications is a very
disturbing sign, and I have seen the source of it. A local high
school teacher participates in several online chat rooms, and she
can't construct a decent English sentence to save her life.
There is a shortage of teachers in our small town. They must have
lowered their standards in order to attract some of the ones that they
have. How many other teachers are there like that
grammatically-challenged one? What chance do their students have?
I have seen the future, and it is stupid.
I use them occasionally. I really don't think they'd stay on
during exercise. Nor do I think they'd make much difference
during exercise even if they did stay on.
You should buy a pack and see if they do any good before trying
to replicate them.
Age and Treachery will Triumph over Youth and Skill
Maybe that's why they don't mention them for that purpose!
Thanks for addressing the post!
Maybe not for you, but my nose really closes down a lot when I breath
in. I would think they would help. I've thought of being resigned to
breathing through my mouth, but I think I heard that was bad.
That makes sense, but I think I can't replicate them. Maybe not the
breathe-rigth people but someone probably spent years, with a lab and
lots of materials, to find the right glue. If I try them, like them,
can't replicate them, and don't want to keep spending the money, I'll
feel frustrated, annoyed, and poor. Maybe I should just stop
running. Well, actually, I barely do anymore.
