CAPS LOCK and Crocodiles

Today, I read on the internet webtubes a webpage suggesting that I remap my CAPS LOCK key to ctrl. I never use CAPS LOCK, and I use ctrl all the time, so it seemed like a good idea. There are two problems. One is in retraining myself to use this key that I'm always dancing around. The other problem is that the caps lock key still turns on and off when I tap it.

Also, I was thinking today that I'm not really in a research mood, I didn't really feal like doing science today. I decided that I would rather be a crocodile. I'd be a totally awesome crocodile. I would take a lot of naps, to conserve energy. I'd really only have to eat, like, one goat per month. I could manage that. I would also never eat people, because that would be mean. I would, though, go to crowded beaches, and people would run around and scream. There would be some people who would save the rest from me, and feel like heroes. They wouldn't know that I'm a just a friendly crocodile.


  1. Interesting. Maybe I'll have to do that. I'm not entirely sure how to do that, but...

    turn into a crocodile, that is.

    I'm sure if I poke around in the settings enough I'll find the right one.

  2. Did you actually shave your head, or did you just Photoshop a picture of yourself?

  3. I did in fact shave my hair after I gave to myself a catastrophically terrible haircut.

  4. really did not want to do research.

    And how would one tool their keyboard such that caps lock would become control?

  5. I don't know how I'd remap capslock on a Windows machine, but it shouldn't be too hard to google up an app that does it. On Mac, open System Preferences, open Keyboard & Mouse, select the Keyboard tab, and click the modifier keys button -- the option is in there.
