You've shared your love of good spelling here, however your Spelling Nazism has subsided of late.

I admit I've missed some "stumble spellers with no commas" lately.

Oh....

So that's where some of my money goes... to fund wetaded 'research'..

The web is awesome and amazing in soooooo many ways.

Mike I hope you don't take offence or think I'm direspecting you buttt..

I'm sorry though , this actually took research!??? Did some guys in white suits pull out there elixers and schematics for this? Did countless sleepless nights come into play for this?? What ' research' was actually happening!

So there telling me a white screen that is interactive .. Gives my brain more reaction then a book? Who woulda thunk it!

This reminds me of my like 3rd grade science classes where we had to all test something even though well all knew it. Like testing the colors of Black and White mixing to make Grey

Nope, although your spelling could use a little tweaking. I just thought it was interesting how times have changed. I started reading when I was in second grade and have continued voraciously ever since. I think we use both sides of the brain when either going on-line or curling up with a good book: one side gives us information at a keystroke, and the other side allows our imagination to take-off and soar.

Where are you going, Hamlet?

"I am going to the castle," says Hamlet.

On the way he meets a ghost. "Where are you going?" asks the ghost.

"I am going to the castle," says Hamlet.

"Boo, boo," says the ghost.

"What is your name, you silly ghost?" asks Hamlet, clapping his hands.

"I am your father," says the ghost. "I was a good king. Uncle Claudius is a bad king, He gave me poison. Would you like poison?"

"Oh, no," says Hamlet. "I would not like poison."

"Will you avenge me, Hamlet?" asks the ghost.

"Oh,yes," says Hamlet. "I will avenge you. What fun it will be to avenge you."

On the way he meets a girl.

"Where are you going?" asks the girl.

"I am going to the castle," says Hamlet.

"Ha, ha," says the girl.

"What is your name?" asks Hamlet.

"My name is Ophelia," says the girl.

"Why are you laughing?" asks Hamlet. "You are a silly goose."

"I am laughing because you are so funny," says Ophelia. "I laugh because you are a schizophrenic. Are you not a schizophrenic?"

"I am not a schizophrenic. I pretend, for I want to fool my uncle. What fun it is to pretend I am schizophrenic."

See Hamlet run. Run, Hamlet, run.

He is going to his mother's room.

"I have something to tell you, mother," says Hamlet.

"Uncle Claudius is bad. He gave my father poison. Poison is not good. Do you like poison?"

"Oh, no, indeed!" says his mother. "I do not like poison."

"Oh, there is Uncle Claudius," says Hamlet. "He is hiding behind the curtain. Why is he hiding behind the curtain?"

"I shall stab him. What fun it will be to stab him through the curtain."

See Hamlet draw his sword. See Hamlet stab.

Stab, Hamlet, stab.

See Uncle Claudius's blood. See Uncle Claudius's blood gush.

Gush, blood, gush.

See Uncle Claudius fall. How funny he looks stabbed.

Ha, ha, ha.

But it is not Uncle Claudius.

It is Polonius. Polonius is Ophelia's father.

What fun Hamlet is having.

"You are naughty, Hamlet," says Hamlet's mother. "You have stabbed Polonius."

But Hamlet's mother is not cross. She loves Hamlet. He is a good boy.

And Hamlet loves his mother. She is a good mother.

Hamlet loves his mother very much.

Does Hamlet love his mother a little too much? Perhaps.

See Hamlet run. Run, Hamlet, run.

Where are you going, Hamlet?

"I am going to find Uncle Claudius" says Hamlet.

On the way he passes a brook. In the brook he sees Ophelia. Ophelia is drowning.

"Where are you going?" asks Ophelia.

"I am going to find Uncle Claudius."

"Glub, glub," says Ophelia.

On the way he meets a man.

"Where are you going?" asks the man.

"I am going to find Uncle Claudius" says Hamlet.

"Oh, NOOOO. I am Laertes," says the man. Let us draw our swords. Let us duel."

"I don't think I am going to find Uncle Claudius," says Hamlet.

See Hamlet and Laertes duel.

See Laertes stab Hamlet.

See Hamlet stab Laertes.

See Hamlet's mother drink poison.

See Hamlet stab King Claudius.

See everybody wounded and bleeding and dying and dead.

What fun they are having.

Wouldn't you like to play like that?

I like my Kindle...

GRAMMAR TO THE PEOPLE! (Too bad most of them can't read beyond a third grade level)

I also like reading what the proletarian irrigation mud and dirt turds have to say here

WATER TO THE PEOPLE!
