I like how it has started placing a question mark in front of capital I. That's kind of fun.

The next level of the joke is sheet stain told me to blame my education, the precursor of the current one where they don't teach spelling because you will just pick it up using spell check.

As the teacher who informed us of that ten years ago said, "Welcome to the finial age." Finial should be d I g I t a l but I probably spelled it wrong so that was what got put in there.

I really shouldn't even look at things. I should just fire them out there to make my posts even funnier.


Funny how a product made in China forces you to use American-ish spellings of words.

Blame Trump!!

Or you could just spell it "check" like a real English speaker...


Um, like English people? Who write it "cheque"?

If the War of Independence was fought over spelling we are seriously going to rewrite the history books.

Yes. Could you imagine if the Declaration of Independence was written in the King's English?

"When in the course of humane eventsee it becoumes necessary for oune peopleee to dissoulve..."

"We houlde these truthes to be self-evidente, that all men are creauted equal..."

Gross.

I'm using an Irish accent to type this. Can you hear it? I sound like that chick from the Cranberries.
