    Default number of spaces after punctuation

    it has recently caught my attention that many people only use ONE space after a punctuation between the sentences. this has shocked me terribly. i always use two, AND ALWAYS WILL. how many do YOU use

    I use two for new paragraph indentations.
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."
