    Ha, was going to say something but figured it was part of the running joke. Hope it didn't take too long finding it.

    My first porn tape was betamax. Remember that? Sony blew it.

    There was a VHS in the vacation house I was just in along with a bunch of tapes, complete with previews that all seemed to start, "Coming to theaters in 1996!"

    And it's a dying breed too, I used to do it and have dialed it back to just one space after a period.
    One grammatical thing that I've been seeing the past few years is a space before punctuation. It drives me fucking nuts.
    This is what I'm talking about btw .

    La pose d'implants capillaires n'est rien d'autre que la greffe cheveux proposée dans le cadre d'un séjour médical tout compris en Tunisie.

    That's probably a keyboard setting on his phone. Definitely not proper.

    Might be...like there's a space added automatically when you complete word?
    IDK, I've seen that a LOT over the past few years and it irks the fuck outta me.

    Yes. That "rule" was created because monospaced font on old typewriters made it difficult to see where the actual sentence break was. Computers have made the double-space after a period irrelevant.

    I had to build an entire presentation to present to some of the senior managers at my old job, because they didn't believe me when I said that double spacing after periods on $10m business proposals made us look like fucking children lol.

    So they actually teach kids in English/grammar/ELA classes to only use one space after periods now? I doubt that.
