But we have to think not wanting to sound like you’re shouting at someone who SAID SOMETHING WRONG ON THE INTERNET played a role, too. The most gentle message can come across as psychotically aggressive when typed in all caps. So as the Navy transitions, we decided to round up five of our favorite examples of all-cap craziness.

Jordan retired from the NBA to play professional baseball, but he couldn’t hit a fastball. He thought he was the greatest ATHLETE. Hubris anyone?
