||It really comes in handy, though - last year they made me assistant editor of one of the college magazines, and I left the editor reeling when we went over a bunch of articles together. I read pretty fast, and she wasn't that comfortable reading on a computer, and I was pointing out spelling errors and grammatical screwups at breakneck speed. Eventually we decided it was better if I did it alone. :)
The downside of that was reading the terrible English in which people wrote their articles - I had a vague feeling of disorientation for about a week :). I ended up rewriting huge parts of them, confirming my theory that most engineering students can't write to save their lives...
