I'm hoping she gets some answers soon.  This has been a lot. although she seems to have enough energy to keep traveling.

Carlin and Evan- For the love of All, please secure that huge mirror that LR is standing in front of in your latest IG story Thanks!

Maybe it’s secured to the wall at the very top (outside of the camera view?)

Poor Layla has a double ear infection. According to Carlin, she's on "anabiotocs." Does this girl ever read ANYTHING?

YES! Every time I see that I think - danger! danger! that will crush a toddler. But I think it *must* be secured somehow b/c it's at an angle and wouldn't just a little bump or nudge send it over?

Where are they talking about Carlin collapsing at the stress test?  I can't find it, but then I don't do Twitter.  TIA!

She has used that word before. I don’t think she  knows that it’s incorrect.

I think she mentioned it in her “stories” which expire and disappear after 24 hours.

She's also used "dinning" room. That one seems to have been learned at the DRT since Alyssa made the same mistake several times until corrected. These fundies are so poorly equipped to function amongst the heathens. Copy for the boutique is probably written by Whitney.

someone on reddit DM'd her to get the info on the mirror as they wanted something similar. Carlin replied and added that the hardware to secure it could be purchased from the site but that she had purchased the hardware to secure it to the wall at Home Depot and Warden had installed it.

They talked about it in this recent YouTube video.

I don't mind the occasional spelling error - heck, I'm sure I make them as well, all the time Everybody does. The problem with the Bates ladies, imho, is that their mistakes show such a basic lack of understanding how language works.

Now, maybe it's because I'm a linguistics nerd, or maybe it's because I'm coming at this from the perspective of someone learning English as a second language. But how can you not realize that if you spell it "dinning room", you'd have to pronounce it with a short "i" sound? And how can you not see that "antibiotics" has a prefix "anti-" that means "against" and also turns up in other words, such as "antibacterial" or "antichrist"? It's just baffling to me.

Their education seems to have been so shallow and mechanical, and that reflects badly on both Kelly and the institutions where they got their degrees, I think.

I saw a picture of the Windsor Castle grand dining room, with the table set for maximum diners in a news magazine; they spelled it "dinning room".  It annoys me, but a lot of people seem to misspell that particular room.

This is sort of what I was thinking. Words have meanings, and those meanings (largely) dictate the spelling. Now, even if you don't grasp what we do with different vowel sounds within a word, or maybe have a hard time reconciling all the differences, the meaning of antibiotic demands that anti and bio at the least form part of the word. 

It's different than with people who struggle with letter combinations because of their shapes, or don't understand things like when a comma is or is not needed for clarity. It's also why I was kind of fussy with my kids about pronunciation. Where the Bates grew up, anti probably isn't very strong on the t, and that's all right in conversation, but you've got to know that it's still there, and what it's for. 

I 'm also thinking how rude people can be toward areas where accents are strongest, assuming people who have those accents are dumb or ignorant or both, and these Bates girls demonstrate why that is, unfortunately. I'd be so annoyed if my cultural background was denigrated because of people like that who are public sillies.  

You could write a dystopian novel about a world in which people like the Bates and the Duggars had so many children, they took over and flooded the lands with a patois that, instead of illustrating richness in historical community bonds, was based wholly on their lack of knowledge of what anything actually is or how it got to be that way.

So I don't know how instagram works for captions, but I think some of them are autogenerated. I mean, dinning table for sure isn't a caption. But I guess I could see anabiotics as a southern drawl issue if it was autogenerated. 

Unquestionable that Bates/Duggars all received substandard education by traditional classroom standards. Also seems to me (in my crotchety old age) that the digital era has made teaching spelling less of a priority all around. I know plenty of young people who were traditionally educated and still rely on spell check, etc. Which, isn't a horrible thing, I mean, it's adaptive. But it's hard for me to say if this is wholly a fundie problem.

I know I've mentioned this several times before, but their lack of understanding of basic math drives me nuts, more so because they partly make their livings from shilling stuff and offering their followers discount codes. IMO, if this is how one makes a living, one should, at the minimum, have an understanding of how percentages work.  I don't know why their sponsors don't call them out on this, or at least teach them how it works.  Their math regarding percentages off is false advertising.

Well. The country is full of people who don’t get percentages. A hidden camera tv show showed shoppers looking at a sign that said “150 % off.” They each said something like “great sale.”  Nobody asked if they paid you to just take the item.

I don’t really like that sort of thing. I’ve seen a lot of shows or online videos posing questions to people. But they mostly just show the people getting it wrong. I would like it if they were more honest and showed the people who actually got things right. It just makes people look dumb when I don’t think it’s the norm.

I keep seeing articles about how covid (even mild covid and even the milder variants)can lead to long term significant neurologic and cardiac sequelae. I have a feeling that long covid symptoms play a role (and are possibly the cause)of Carlin's symptoms. Idle speculation of course but that is my hunch.

They already made the film, Idiocracy. I only watched the beginning of the film, but what your describing is pretty much the opening sequence of the film. Sadly.

They mentioned that nobody got it right. This says to me not that people are dumb but that we have the wrong priorities in the teaching of math. Few are really going to need algebra, but everyone needs consumer math, graph reading, spotting statistics fraud, how life insurance works . . .  It’s not just badly homeschooled fundies who don’t understand percentages. It’s taught in middle school and seldom revisited. (No, I am not against algebra, just an inappropriate emphasis on it.)

I’m an accountant and I used to teach middle school math. Numbers are my thing and I have a very good grasp on percentages, but I usually don’t consider them all that useful. If I’m buying something at a discount, I want to know how much the discounted price is and how much I’m saving off the original price.  The actual percentage is somewhat inconsequential unless you are following along as someone computes a price.

I strongly believe that having covid during pregnancy (thankfully mild) contributed to the preeclampsia I developed at the end of my pregnancy. I had zero other risk factors and no family history, worked out and ate healthy the whole pregnancy, etc. And unfortunately preeclampsia is associated with later development of high blood pressure and heart disease. (And there is evidence of a link between covid in pregnancy and preeclampsia too, unfortunately)

The percentage off and the deadline can tell you whether you should shop now or can  wait without losing much. (Knowing how common big discounts are for that item helps too, of course.) And if the percentage off, the original price, and the discounted price do not match,  it tells you to beware, as does a failure to provide all three figures.

Proper spelling is not as trendy as it used to be.

I agree, and it makes me stabby. My 8th grade English teacher (a woman whom I hold in the highest regard) must be constantly cringing and whieding her red pen in the hereafter.
