the other day we were discussing dating and this one dude was like “I don’t see the big deal why can’t people just ask people out without all the fuss” and another guy was like “well you get nervous and you get butterflies in your stomach ya know” and the first dude looked the other dude straight in the eye and said “DIGEST THEM.”

""There is, by now, a clear body of evidence," says Nenagh Kemp, a language psychologist at the University of Tasmania who’s spent the past few years studying the topic, and recently published a new study on it with Clare Wood, of Coventry University in the UK. "Parents and educators need not panic that exposure to abbreviated and unconventional spelling and writing styles in digital communication will lead to the ruin of young people’s conventional literacy skills.". Kemp and Wood’s new study is one of several showing that, for children and teens, there aren’t any correlations between using more textisms and decreased performance on formal grammar and spelling tests over time. Indeed, there’s even a slight correlation between textism use and increases in test scores — suggesting that, counterintuitively, this sort of behavior might improve kids’ mastery of written language."
