Annoy your friends and colleagues with CAPS LOCK DAY.

FROM CNN NEWS BLOG EDITOR MALLORY SIMON.

THERE'S NOTHING MOST TECH-SAAVY PEOPLE HATE MORE THAN SEEING THIS – THE ESSENTIAL SHOUTING OVER THE COMPUTER – THROUGH THE ENTIRE USE OF THE CAPS LOCK.

BUT APPARENTLY TODAY WE ARE TO CELEBRATE IT IN HONOR OF INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY, WHICH HAS ITS OWN WEBSITE, AND NOW ITS OWN TWITTER ACCOUNT (THOUGH THERE ARE ONLY A FEW POSTINGS.)

    Too funny. Not yelling. It is form of typing before we had the alternate. If you remember old computers, when they first came out. This is all they had. In typing class we had block letters for some forms of correspondence? Two years. Where they came up with screaming, is beyond me.
    Handicap folks can see better for one thing. I myself reverted to caps, when I finally figured out my eyesight was hampered by aspartame and splenda/ My near death experience along with swelling up like balloon, head in brace, could not drive, horrifying iching, migraines, arthritus, skin problems. Sleeping 20 hours a day, stomach pains, dizzy spells, hair falling out.. I recieved an e-mail which saved my life. At first I could not read the e-mail but sent it on to my friends. One sent it back that stated some site on Snopes said it was not true. I investigated this afterwards, and, found hundreds of people found the link between aspartame and Splenda and not only cancer and heart disease, but, tons of other maladies. Just google SWEET POISONS Turns into wook alcohol. They had one story on there where one man had inoperable brain cancer. He went to Cancer center of America, Where they first told him to get off all soda and stay away from fake sugars. In his story, 3 months later the tumors dissappeared.
    In three days I lost 30 pounds. My hair grew back. I can see again. Headaches I had for decades drinking my favorite friend. GONE. All arthritus GONE. I went to doctors whcih they said I had MS, Lupus. NONE asked me about fake sugars. I could not afford the tests.(NO INSURANCE) I resigned myself that I was about to die. Not any more. GO FIGURE.

    MAYBE PEOPLE WRITING CAPS BECAUSE THEY CANNOT SEE. JUDGE NOT UNLESS YEA BE JUDGED. Something you may be exposed to and not know why.
