C&c?
 
Hey everyone just curious why C&Cs are typed out C&cs all the time. Its gonna give me a head ache if I keep thinking about it all day.

Thanks in advance

Because you hit the left shift key with the left pinky and then the right shift key with the right pinky and after that your pinkies are exhausted and the left shift key isn't hit again.

How is that for sound reasoning??:D

whats wierd is that I typed it in my original post as C & a m p ; Cs it changed all on its own to C&cs. Maybe this new quit smoking drug chantix that I'm taking to quit is making me go crazy or something. Or maybe its the fact I bought my boat in April and have only visited it twice. Wait wait I know Crazy I was crazy once worms....worms made me crazy.. Does anyone know what that might be from?

was the a m p ; part of how people spell it some kind of Icon or something that does not exist anymore?

certain keyboard characters are often mis-encoded depending on what browser and language set you have selected, and that results in the characters being shown as "& amp ;" instead of just "&".

C&Cs Just using the shift keys
C&Cs Using caps lock

Looks good this way before posting. No small cees.
Now to post.

Thanks SD I am now not going to go crazy. Now I will just let the idiots that I help on the phone all day drive me crazy. What fun to look forward to.
