Adolph is found living at the daily mail … and apparently on twitter as well.

Sometimes I think every single person in the UK is on line at the very same time cos damn, things are getting slow here. Maybe the browser? Irritating.

I ran across something so awesomely stupid, so totally vapid, that I have trouble understanding why a major paper would bother.

It seems as though every week, or at least every month, the Daily Mail publishes some story about Hitler for reasons only they understand. It is not as if they publish anything with new information to give us any insights.  Much of what they print under a headline that says newly discovered is old and tired.

There are a few ppl in the world, and I met one or two years ago, who actually believed AH was alive and in hiding.  Well, if he were still alive after all this time, I promise ya it would be in the Mail. That is, Hitler lives it seems, at the Mail.
Usually I ignore the tosh they report. Pretty tired and pretty damn boring. But today ....the Mail devoted space to the dumbest thing I’ve seen, and it isn’t even April 1 yet.

Janet Street-Porter of the Mail wrote a lengthy article about Twitter in today’s hard copy edition and here’s just a taste of what she said. Has nothing to do with AH but .... there might be a connection to what follows this.


Is Twitter anything more than a tidal wave of utter drivel, a tsunami of bilge?

Instead of considered comment or intelligent conversation, millions of us are happy to reduce social interaction to these brief, grammatically threadbare outbursts. At this rate Prime Minister’s Questions will soon consist of a series of texts.

Yes, you could look on Twitter as a force for good, a liberating easy-to-use shorthand that crosses national frontiers and social barriers. Or you could stop and think for a minute about what its runaway success reveals about our culture, and our modern values.

Humans are highly sophisticated beings, the product of years of evolution. We are capable of astonishing acts of intelligence, and yet, in the 21st century, we’ve decided to regress, to embrace a stunted form of communication that banishes grammar, context, considered evaluation, subtle innuendo… and adjectives.

Twitter is the bastard child of ‘textspeak’ — and we know what that has done to our ability to write in sentences, our spelling and our writing skills.

Now anyone who actually picks up a pen and sends a thank-you note is seen as a dinosaur, a product of a bygone age.

She has a lot more to say and you may have another opinion on the subject, but here’s the link for some interesting reading.

PORTER ON TWITTER

So as the sun disappears behind the clouds as it’s done all week, to be replaced by mist and damp, we return to the Mail and their love affair with Mr. Hitler.
This is a hoot guys.  If it was meant as a joke I guess it may be worth a grin and shake of the head. Not too certain ‘bout that.
Take a look.

The Hitler house:  looks eerily like Nazi dictator (complete with naff side parting)

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
Last updated at 3:42 PM on 29th March 2011

This unassuming semi in a sleepy part of Swansea is set to become a global internet sensation… for bearing a passing resemblance to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Its neat brown door brings to mind the fascist dictator’s trademark toothbrush moustache.

And the slanting tiled roof falls at a similar angle to the leader’s greased down, parted hairstyle.

Eagle-eyed tweeter Charli Dickenson spotted the curious similarity and posted the photos on her Twitter page where they have become a big hit.

Comedian Jimmy Carr re-Tweeted the image later as interest gathered on the micro-blog site.

Carr wrote: ‘Morning, here’s a house that looks like Hitler.’

It was sent on by hundreds of his followers and became a trending topic on Twitter.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
