is there any way to do that? is it a font or a latex glitch thing?

To clarify, I want to be able to write with characters that overlay each other and I want the be able to change the text underneath and add more of the weird symbols

Basically I want to type nonsense w/ some form of TeX or LaTeX

    Welcome to TeX.SE. At least on my computer monitor, your posting is nearyl undecipherable because characters (glyphs?) are densely overlaid and interfere visually both with each other and the few Latin-alphabet characters. Please modify your posting to clarify what you're looking to achieve -- and how this objective might be related to TeX and friends.

    Sure, just use a font with combining diacritics and start stacking. If the diacritics start colliding, you can manually adjust their vertical position. Without an MWE, it's hard to be more specific.

    @Kyruem Well, your comment reveals that you're not primarily wanting to know how to do a specific thing with LaTeX ("all I want to do is like be able to type nonsense on, say a Word Doc", so I'm afraid this is off-topic for this site.

    Please see my revision, which allows more flexibility. For what it is worth, I find your question a legitimate one. Sep 4, 2015 at 15:55

    This compiles perfectly with xelatex or lualatex: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Junicode} \begin{document} % paste your Unicode nonsense here \end{document} Sep 4, 2015 at 16:00

Something like this? EDITED to introduce \updown. RE-EDITED to allow it to work with \normalsize, by implementing a \scalefactor for the gibberish, as well as allowing a stackgap setting.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{stackengine,graphicx}
\def\scalefactor{.25}
\setstackgap{S}{3pt}
\def\updown#1#2{\def\useanchorwidth{T}\scalebox{\scalefactor}{%
  \stackunder{\stackon{}{\Shortstack{#1}}}{\Shortstack{#2}}}\ignorespaces}
\begin{document}
How do I type this 
w\updown{w u \$ \% n O P}{s @ \# f ) +}
o\updown{A R T w u \$ \% n O P}{s @ f ) ) z e R}
r\updown{w u \$ \% P \_ = n O P}{:  @ \# f ) d c}
d\updown{w u \$ \% n O P}{s @ \# f ) P q S \$} 
\ or
\def\scalefactor{.4}%
\setstackgap{S}{1pt}%
w\updown{w u \$ \% n O P}{s @ \# f ) +}
o\updown{A R T w u \$ \% n O P}{s @ f ) ) z e R}
r\updown{w u \$ \% P \_ = n O P}{:  @ \# f ) d c}
d\updown{w u \$ \% n O P}{s @ \# f ) P q S \$}?
\end{document}

enter image description here

More gibberishy things can be obtained with the use of various symbol packages. For example, the use of pmboxdraw with this invocation

Or
\def\scalefactor{.3}%
\setstackgap{S}{0pt}%
w\updown{\textSFxxvi{} \textSFl{} 2 \textSFi{} \textlfblock{} \textSFxl}
  {1 2 \textlfblock{} \textSFxl 3 \textSFxxiv{}}
o\updown{:  @ \# f ) d c}{w u \$ \% P \_ = n O P}
r\updown{\textSFxxvi{} \textSFl{} 2 \textSFi{} \textlfblock{} \textSFxl \% \&}
  {1 2 \textSFxl 3 \textSFxxiv{}}
d\updown{\textSFxxvi{} \textSFl{} 2 \textSFi{} \textSFxl + = -}
  {1 2 \textlfblock{} \textSFxl 3 \textSFxxiv{}}

looks like this:

    @Kyruem It was not off topic. Sometimes the closing squad is too hasty :) (+1, by the way, Steven). Sep 4, 2015 at 16:39
