Interview with Ryan Smith on ESPN during lunch.  I learned a few things...

He's a sosheology major.

Can't remember the context to be honest but there's a good mecksture of something going on with him.

lol. My brother is deaf so I've spent a fair amount of time watching closed captioned television. DVDs, taped television shows, etc. tend to be pretty accurate, though if there's a lot of fast and/or overlapping dialogue it tends to get simplified to give you the gist of what they're saying without giving every line.

Live TV is the worst. Of course it's probably really hard to type that fast and keep up with what they're saying. Then again, court stenographers tend to do a pretty decent job.

I get the typos and shorthand stuff but this particular person had fifth grade spelling capabilities.  I'm thinking that's part of the job interview. 

Kinda like this...

"Please spell indictments."

"Can I have that in a sentence please?"

"The Cincinnati Bengals quadrupled the league record for indictments in 2006."

We have the captioning on a lot at our house.

It's funniest to me watching BBC America where the guy/girl doing the typing has no idea of the places, sayings, slang or just plain misunderstands an accent.

It kills me when they try to translate that gazoo bit on Benny Hill.
