this is inspired by posts in the ucberkeley community.
im curious what everyone thinks about grammer. is it really that important? why are we conditioned to follow these strict rules of language?
my view is that its the message not the method of delivery. proper grammer is a show of respect in a way, but isnt it a little odd that people go out of their way to criticize someone for how they speak, and that we are forced to learn a certain standard of communication?
for the record ive never had an english teacher who could give me a satisfactory answer to why proper grammer is important enough to warrant all our years of schooling.
but im interested to hear what the cal community has to say about it, since im sure many of you have extensive knowledge in this area.

So I'm taking Low Intermediate ballet (anyone else? *waves*), and the teacher said there's a place on College Ave that sells ballet slippers. Well, I walked all the way down to the Safeway yesterday and I didn't find it.
Anyone know where this dance store is? Did I have to go further than Safeway? Is there any other place nearby that I can go? I really need some shoes by Wednesday.
Thanks. : )

Does anyone else think this calblather thing is semi-dead? I mean, the other community has a few douches but something's always happenin'.
I think I've just become an LJ addict, that's all. I'll probably get over these feelings.

I'm moving to Berkeley friday. Into a room in a house near Ashby/Telegraph. I've decided I must infiltrate the dorms every once in a while to discover who owns a hookah. Then I'm gonna smoke it. And I'm gonna smoke it good. Are ye with me?!?!

An international research team has proposed new techniques that may lead to the mass production of meat reared not on the farm, but in the laboratory..
oh man, as much as i thought this would be the eventual future...it is just so weird! and if we're going to be growing meat in our labs...then it'll just be a matter of time before they're GMOed and oh man the ruckus that would stir up
i wonder if vegans will eat this...

Excerpt from blog:
"Diversity is Who We Are" is the theme of the fall recruiting campaign by Abercrombie & Fitch. The Aryan-obsessed retailer has been under considerable fire for its hiring practices, lack of diversity behind the scenes and, most of all, the blond and blue veneer applied across much of its marketing. As part of a wide-reaching settlement, the retailer is required to run these messages on its website and selected print media.
