Epic fail Nov 23, 2012

How cringeworthy is it when once august institutions stoop so low? If these are examples of Zeitgeist, they can count me out.

Digital words Nov 26, 2012

Digital technology makes new words appear quickly, both in voice and in alphabet. In phone answering system, I listen to new and weird accents/wordings every time the services of new enterprises come into action. Electronic dictionary of every language can be busy to update for the new words.
