Have you made any typo mistakes before?

My recent one is here: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......rt=300#9 I meant to post the word "wage" instead of "rage" several times in that post. Jonathan pointed it out to me.

My biggest one is here: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......267172#0 I meant to post the word "hobo" instead of "homo."

No not me but I saw somebody else make a typo. Instead of writing "mature", he mistakenly typoed "manure."

No kidding. Especially from my phone.

Ironically enough this typo free post was from my phone though.

My favorite part is when I make a typo trying to clarify my previous typo.

In a report to the police, I was describing a drug dealer’s lookout “peeking” through the window. By mistake, I typed “peeing”.

Even though several officers and detectives read my email, nobody noticed.

So often "submit" reads as "surprise me" and novel turns of phrase are welcome.

The most recent was trying to send my wife "Waiting for the bus" and as I hit "send," I saw it read; "Sainting on the bus."

What the hey? What is "Sainting," anyway?

What's funny about your biggest typo, Dynamike, is that so many people played along; and then you finally caught it after 9 posts. Loved it. Lynn

Off the subject, but it just struck me that the two names are anagrams for each other and both guys wear red suits. Smile

Recall that Dana Carvey did a 'church lady" routine on SNL using this anagram. It was hilarious. Lynn

I am thankful everyday for autocorrect and online dictionaries. When younger in college, before such technological wonders, I was pulling my third straight all-nighter during finals weeks. It was 2 am and I was working on a paper, when I got stuck on how to spell "should." For some reason, my over-caffeinated brain thought the word started with "ch..." So my unabridged Webster's was no help. As I was using a typewriter, I could not leave it blank and go back to it. I ended up wasting over 30 minutes trying to figure out how to spell the word...

Neither of which apparently let you know that, in the sense that you're using it, "every day" is two words, not one.

I’m also thankful for online grammar police that pick up my computer’s misses.

I only post on forums when I'm too drunk to stop myself.
Even then I post (horrible things, I am a monster) with passable spelling and grammar. I really can't understand why everyone else isn't as awesome as I am at word stuff....

"Trump 2020: lose hope all ye who enter"
Yeah, I don't know what I think that'll do. They're all too busy trying to remain uneducated, well I guess educated by a TV channel (foxnews.com is not a separate knowledge base)... and I don't know what's worse.

So ther! Yous gets mi internets.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.
