"If someone mispronounces a word, do not mock them. That means they learned it from reading."

Yeah or the language being spoken is not their first one, or they have any number of neurological or physical or mental illnesses, or they're hard of hearing, or they speak the language with an accent where that is the standard pronunciation, or a million other things and you know what you shouldn't mock anyone for this ever anyway.

What tiny bits I know about what each of them does to a person’s brain and body suggests that people are right to be suspect of the internet (especially social media) and not of books. Reading is physically good for you, calming, and often puts you in a receptive and compassionate place. The internet, especially social media... at best, fairly similar to what happens to you when you spend all day at a slot machine.

the standard train noise being 'choo choo' long after the demise of steam power is the same phenomenon as the save icon being 💾 long after the demise of floppies
