"I" and the space after it is often too much work to type

This all happened on the day the newscaster, who makes $3M/year, told about a man who snuk up on a pond and dove in. He was later hung.

English ( much like our Constitution) is a living institution. The rules you learned no longer apply. Wait until stretch spelling gets really going.

Angry I'm still annoyed . . .

. . . by "party" used as a verb. "I was partying last night, dude, whoa!" (To be fair, that use dates all the way back to the mid-70's; it's not new.)

Or "impact" to mean "affect," as in "Millions were impacted by Hurricane Katrina." To me, "impact" is only a noun; if something's impacted, it should be a wisdom tooth.

Germans also capitalize the first letter of a noun even if it is in the middle of a sentence. zum beispiel (for example) Germans also capitalize the first Letter of a Noun even if it is in the middle of a Sentence. Don't tell the authors of the three word story about stretch spelling.
