How We Read

I want you to think about what you’re doing right now. I mean really think about it. As your eyes move across these lines and funnel information to your brain, you’re taking part in a conversation I started with you. The conveyance of that conversation is the type you’re reading on this page, but you’re also filtering it through your experiences and past conversations. You’re putting these words into context. And whether you’re reading this book on paper, on a device, or at your desk, your environment shapes your experience too. Someone else reading these words may go through the same motions, but their interpretation is inevitably different from yours.

hey edscoble, I would love to help but I don’t really understand what you mean by subtitles on my show? are you talking about my gifs or roosterteeth videos or?

Apologies for not being clear, I meant subtitles in the roosterteeth/achievement hunter videos, usually for the hard of hearing

ahh I understand what you mean now, but I’m afraid I don’t think roosterteeth offers subtitles for their videos as of now? and uhm it would be pretty crazy for me to try transcribing every single of their videos

if it’s a language thing, I totally understand!!! (I’m not a native speaker) and I’d suggest rewinding videos until you get everything, and start asking around the parts that you really can’t understand. you can ask me too!!! that’s how I learned english (except with green day interview videos instead of rt videos). if it’s a biology thing (hearing problems etc) then I’m so sorry :(

Wasn’t asking you to transcribe all the videos! was wondering if there’s an editor who would be able to organised this (The Guild have subtitles option in all their videos whom I’m forever grateful for), it’s not a language thing despite having difficulties with English as it is.

It’s a disability, I was born deaf and still struggle with understanding people, let alone watching videos.

Thank for getting back though, mean a lots.

Pretty clever.

You say not all men are monsters?

Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned.

Go ahead. Eat a handful.

Not all M&Ms are poison. 

Nail on the head.

I really liked Mackie’s (Andrew Mcintosh) work when I first saw it at the Wimbledon Studio last week, painting old abandon building with a cut out to mimic a dollhouse.

Finished the Bryan Chapman Memorial last week, the toughest audax I’ve ever done so far, 627km in a little over 37 hours, it was awesome.
