    I get the sarcasm....Some people are better at it than others...but to me it has gotten to the point where that is the only way people can and do communicate. I think Seinfeld pretty much taught people how it was supposed to be done.

    I wouldn't hit a dog in the ass with that study.

    "People with dementia, or head injuries in that area, often lose the ability to pick up on sarcasm, and so they don't respond in a socially appropriate ways."

    So it was those people who invented smilies?

    No Ohio State fans invented the smilies, so that Michigan fans could cope.

    Smilies were invented so Krono could have something to say when he just has to post something and can't think of what to say.
