The letter s is so yesterday. It's time to embrace the future and jump on the z bandwagon.

A majority of American energy is spent on marketing and trying to think of ways to arrest people who think and act differently than the status quo.

Watch out s-using dissidents!

From a previous grammar rodeo:
Bag of Ass wrote:I haven't done a grammar rodeo in a while. Today's lesson is about the hyphen and the dash.

Ah. I have found the alt-codes for the en-dash and em-dash.

Hyphen: - [tab]There's a key on your keyboard for this!
En-dash: – [tab]Alt-0150[tab]&#8212 ; (remove the space)
Em-dash: — [tab]Alt-0151[tab]&#8211 ; (remove the space)

More.
