Case Sensitivity Is What Prevents You Logging On To Your Computer When CapsLock Is Turned On.
CASE SENSITIVITY IS WHAT PREVENTS YOU LOGGING ON TO YOUR COMPUTER WHEN CAPSLOCK IS TURNED ON.
The opposite of Case sensitivity is CaSe iNSeNSiTiViTy, although Not-Case sensitivity is being used frequently, too.
Forms of Case sensitivity
Case sensitivity applies mainly to written language. Usually, volume is considered its counterpart in spoken language, where uppercase letters refer to YELLING, lowercase letters refer to normal speaking volume, light and small letters refer to whispering, misaligned letters refer to having a croaky voice (), and blank text refers to .
Advantages of Case sensitivity
The advantage of Case sensitivity is that you can have 131,072 different copies of thattennisgirl.jpg all called the same thing, whilst also being separate entities, or, more general, options, where n is the number of alphabetical letters in the text. This can also be seen as a logic error of such scale that it would accelerate the end of the universe.
Disadvantages of Case sensitivity
Case sensitivity makes finding your pr0n a lot harder than it needs to be. Rather than having to remember if you're trying to find mysister.jpg, yoursister.jpg, bobssister.jpg or oprah.jpg, you also have to choose between MySister.jpg, mysister.jpg, MYSISTER.JPG, yoursister.jpg, YourSister.jpg and YoursIsTER.jpg.
Another obvious advantage of CaSe iNSeNSiTiViTy is the possibility to type faster, as the Magic Keys (Shift and CAPS LOCK) on your keyboard are to be pressed by the shortest and least developed of your fingers (The ones anatomically attached your hand, you sex-focused pervert...). This agony is even worsened by the convention to press that shift button which is further away from the actual letter. Lower-case typing is widely common among users of Instant Messaging and Online Chat (see below for more information).
Representatives of Case (in)sensitivity
Approximately 1 in 30 human beings is Case sensitive. In particularly bad cases, BOLD CAPITALS or inconsistent use of capitalisation (eg. iPod) can cause Case-Induced fits not dissimilar to epilepsy or biscuits. If you see somebody suffering from a Case-Induced fits, try to talk them out of it by speaking either very very quietly, or VERY VERY LOUDLY INDEED.
Things that are Case sensitive
- God. Never ever forget His Case sensitivity. Otherwise, be prepared for His Holy Wrath.
- Teachers. Although they are far from being as mighty as God, they can still force you to a lap of honour at school.
- HaXX0Rz. Being Case sensitive is a crucial part of 1337|\|355, or at least they think so.
- UNIX-based systems, such as Linux. This is quite evident, as most users of such systems are HaXX0Rz.
- Germans. The Germans, having a very idiosyncratic Grammar, pride themselves of being Case sensitive. They do not care about the People committing Suicide upon unsuccessfully having tried to master the german Language.
- Article titles on Wikipedia (except for the first character after the colon!).
things that are not case sensitive
- frodo baggins. having been rendered incapable to press the left shift button by gollum, he is forcedly at most case half-sensitive.
- users of instant messaging and online chat, as well as online gamers, due to their main aim being fast typing.
- windows, being the counterpart to UNIX-based systems.
- keyboards. or do you see every letter in lower- and uppercase?
- mute people, for the obvious reason.
- google. seriously. it doesn't know or care whether you capitalize your words.
- you. because obviously, you haven't stopped reading this article. yet.
- oracle's database software. it prints everything in CAPS LOCK.
