Going Senile

Just tried to start a sentence with a number.

Took five attempts to get it right before realising that, yes, you normally hold down the shift key when starting a sentence. But not when you're typing a number.

% Attempts! How mad is that?

Re: Going Senile

I applaud you for not complying with the "never start a sentence with a number" nonsense

You have a humour? You can get it removed and I hope it hasn't spread.
