This will require "special" medicine.

I do actually wonder why english does that. If you end a sentence with punctuation every time the task of distinguishing between sentences is already done.

A capital letter is easier to see than a punctuation mark, I suppose. People might skip over the punctuation mark.
#83 to #78 - reteip (10/30/2012) [-]
Every language I know of does it, not only English.
User avatar #97 to #83 - Marker (10/30/2012) [-]
Only languages that use the same/similar alphanumeric system as English do. Capital letters aren't really common in languages that use a completely different set of characters.
#98 to #97 - reteip (10/30/2012) [-]
Hmm, interesting I didn't know that.
User avatar #103 to #98 - Marker (10/30/2012) [-]
Just look at Japanese, Chinese, and like darthomale said, Hebrew.

Hebrew also has this odd system called final letters. If a word in Hebrew ends with one of 5 certain letters, that letter is actually replaced by an alternate character, whose name roughly translates to "final letter."

hebrew doesnt

I think it's just more appealing to the eye, really. It makes the sentence flow downhill, like a slide. Then you climb back up the ladder for another go.

This guy. You have won an internets.
User avatar #86 to #82 - darthtomale (10/30/2012) [-]
If our language didn't do it it wouldn't make a difference even slightly. I imagine an alternate universe where you aren't required to capitalize and some normal girl posts on facebook "Please start capitalizing your sentences. Don't you think it looks better?" and all of these jackasses in the comments want to commit suicide over it.
#94 to #86 - theyoungwildfree (10/30/2012) [-]
actually, we use punctuation for abbreviations mid sentance. what if you're reading a list of instructions from your doctor or something, you see an abbreviation, think it's a new sentance and die? then you'll feel bad sir.
User avatar #95 to #94 - darthtomale (10/30/2012) [-]
if we never had capitals im sure we'd all be used to it. ancient greece had no punctuation and they did just fine
#102 to #95 - theyoungwildfree (10/30/2012) [-]
I was trying to be ironic. arguing for capitoling, yet not doing it. tool-style.
#104 to #102 - darthtomale (10/30/2012) [-]
i honestly didnt notice... i dont know what that means for my argument
#107 to #104 - theyoungwildfree (10/30/2012) [-]
i think you win a prize. and yes, i did nothing to argue against you. F for me.

I need to be thumb'd up more times. I'm a newbie. I usually use a family member's account and decided to make my own after all these years.

she's right, we're on the internet, why bother with 100% perfect grammar and stuff like that?
#85 to #52 - anonymous (10/30/2012) [-]
People aren't going to be 100% correct all the time but they should at least try. This is why people don't know how to write like a competent person outside the internet. They cant remember what they were taught in english class about grammar and spelling because they don't use it. They half ass everything on the internet because its an informal place and its not necessary to sound intelligent. This is why theres so many ******** out there who can't even understand the difference between using 'to' and 'too' or 'your' and 'you're'.

It's the difference between: Helping your uncle jack off a horse. Or: Helping your Uncle Jack off a horse.

Because this is what happens when you don't use grammar properly: a Grammar Nazi cries and kills himself.

I'd prefer no capital letters to those idiots who "Write Every Facebook Status Like This Because It's So Cool"
They say they spell **** stupidly because it's 'quicker' and then they pull some **** like that.
User avatar #22 - Shiny (10/30/2012) [-]
I hate it when I'm using a proper noun that intentionally starts with a lowercase letter and I don't know whether to capitalize it at the beginning of a sentence.

My time on funnyjunk has offered me so many questions and never gives any answers.

The biggest question I face on here is "Why the **** do you even care?"
