U.S. Navy personnel attend a ceremony and commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Midway at the U.S. Navy Memorial on June 4, 2012 in Washington, D.C. - 

This final note on the way out, courtesy of the United States Navy.

For 150 years -- since the earliest days of telegrams and teletypes -- the official Navy communications system only allowed FOR ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, WHICH, YOU KNOW, MAKES PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THEY'RE BEING YELLED AT.

THEY'RE ROLLING OUT A NEW SYSTEM ACCEPTING WHAT THE WORLD ALREADY KNOWS. THAT ALL CAPS ARE JUST REALLY ANNOYING.

THE BEST PART? THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT WAS IN ALL CAPS.
