“We knew that a that a star had been discovered…..”

Yep, I let that one slide by in my last column.

Maybe I was so happy that the “T” works on my new keyboard that I went a little overboard.


I’m just too lazy to proofread what I’ve written.

We’ll go with that since that’s just the way it really is!

I’ve always thought that proofreading was silly since it just gives you mind the opportunity to add more stuff when you just want to get it over with.

These are some excerpts from actual articles that went out with no proofreading in our print editions:

“Shockingly, to some, the President’s head just fell off!” (1963)

“There’s not enough gas to get back from Mars. They’re screwed!” (1969)

“This one’s head did not fall off, unlike his brother’s.” (1968)

“’Battlestar Galactica’ is just a rip-off of ‘Singin’ In The Rain’”. (1978)

“The cat ate my tongue while I was sleeping.” (1973)

“We enjoy your readership.” (1957)

“We’ve made millions of dollars from this here site!” (2000)

I’m sure there’s more, but that means I’ll have to continue digging thru old stuff which I’m kind of bored doing.

At this time.

More Lunatic Ravings…

Read a new Lunatic Ravings every Saturday!

Stephen Johnson

The idea of building a website with Bob came from Stephen in the days of message boards and chat rooms. We settled on the name and the rest is history. Retired since he hit the ripe age of 25, he spends most his time doing odd-jobs around the house and digging thru trash bins for "stuff that's still good." Stephen has contributed several short stories and hosted the "Lunatic Ravings" column since the beginning (1999). The idea of writing weekly columns came from Stephen before blogs or blog sites ever existed. So, I guess that makes him THE FIRST BLOGGER IN THE WORLD!!!
