I mean, however would George Washington have managed the Inchon landings if he was tweeting about it every 5 minutes?

WWII would never have started as Hitler would be looking at cute puppy pics on the net,while leaving snarky comments on Goering's Facebook page.

       How'd you do that umlout (spelling?) thing?

       Personally I Google then copy paste (when I can bother to), how [8th] does it not a clue.

       Education. It's probably uncommon where you come from.   

       Sp. "Umlaut" (or Diaeresis)

       An umlaut is not the same thing as a diaeresis. Göring had an umlaut. Coöperate and reëlection (strictly speaking) each have a diaeresis.   

       The umlaut modifies the pronunciation of a single vowel. The diaeresis indicates that two vowels are not to be merged.   

       I have a horrible feeling that I may have learned that here.

       An apple omelette ... interesting. What do you serve with it ?   

       // An umlaut is not the same thing as a diaeresis //   

       Yes, we know. The linguistic function is different, but the cymbal is the same.   

       // I may have learned that here //   

       A disturbing though. If people start learning things* - or think they're learning things - from the halfbakery, the consequences could be disastrous.   

       *Other than pedantry, disrespect, sarcasm, irony, bathos and spoon-balancing, that is.
