Actually, I personally think that ppl who are quite good at keying like that can actually type faster than we can talk. shocked (except maybe not faster than the rapid-fire disclaimer in a radio/tv ad, idk.)

I can speak from experience - once you learn to play, playing the piano is actually a lot of fun! I often play for the younger kids / church friends, and often enjoy slipping a little bit of Super Mario brothers in the middle of a song. smile I don't think I'd call it lame to be able to play well. laugh although maybe I am a bit of a loser for enjoying it so much :P

Hopefully whatever piano you get will keep you smiling ear to ear even more. smile I personally like the older Baldwin Hamiltons, but Kawai pianos can be good too. smile

Oh, and be careful DWT. I don't want you to hurt yourself in a wreck or worse kill yourself cause you were texting while driving. shocked

And I appreciate the H&K. I actually if I remember correctly haven't (at least in real life) been on the receiving end of that since about the equivalent time that a Baldwin grand piano with a humidity control system in a climate-controlled room would have been tuned to A-440, assuming same piano has the good pinblocks that Baldwin has been known for, AND is now a full tone / 200¢ flat. (I personally think it'd be nice to be able to share H&K with my friends at least as often as an old 3/4-plate birdcage upright piano used frequently in concerts would need to be tuned, assuming it has a cracked pinblock and split bridges. :P)

My spidey sense tells me that the OP is a perfectly articulate person (maybe even an adult) having a good laugh getting a rise out of everyone by portraying either a) a totally immature and ignorant child or b) a moron. Hint: kids haven't said 'take a chill pill' since the '90's.

However, giving the OP the benefit of the doubt, my advice would be to rent a cheap digital piano with 88 keys and weighted action until you decide you are serious about the commitment that learning music (which btw is probably THE most intricate language on earth) requires.

Just because texting is great for cell phones and the like, doesn't mean it is great for a forum with involved discussion. My 24 y.o. daughter texts often for quick messaging with her friends. But for a conversation, she uses the phone or email.

I can live with the abbreviations provided the sentence makes sense when decoded. However, what I really object to in contemporary kidspeak is the inane use of the word "like". Removal of "Like" from the original post makes no difference to the meaning of the post. "Like" actually has a meaning as a verb or a simile but it doesn't appear once in proper context in the OP. It's use in this way wastes keystrokes, undoing some of the benefit of the abbreviations.
Dumb. IMHO.

It's had an amazingly long run, too—back to the Beatnik era at the very least, which means that it was used by the great-grandparents of today's kids.

Concerning the use of the word "like"... I heard an interesting interview with a linguist about this. He had interviewed the high-schoolers who eye-witnessed the Columbine shootings. He found it remarkable that in all the interviews, none of the kids used words such as "like" which he had previously considered meaningless marker words. These were kids that would normally be expected to use these words frequently. His theory is that for many kids, life has a quality of unreality about it, and their use of "like" reflects that. Then when something very real happened to them, like Columbine, their language changed, at least temporarily. Larry
