Seriously people of Wisconsin, I mean - seriously?!?! How, just how? People, if you visit New Hampshire, do NOT drink the tap water.
Are we sure that the DC area isn't included in the searches for Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, because that would explain a lot.
Does this mean Indiana is full of sinners cause they can't spell Hallelujah
Haa! What trips me out is the people of 5 states can't spell the word beautiful... in Cali no less. I can see that in the metal and concrete block that is New York City, but Cali??? No excuse for that! lol
That one cracked me up lol
Thank ya for sharing this.
I laughed too! Most welcome :)
I must want everyone to feel stupid. lol
Spelling is stupid.
Einstein has the "I" before "E" thing wrong twice in his name.
I think that's just an English problem. lol
Well, alrighty then.
To be honest, if I need to look up a word, I don't google "how to spell X," I just type in the word as I think it's spelled and 'define.' But i gotta be honest, I'm in Texas and no matter how many time I spell maintenance, I always try to switch the e and the a around at the end - tanence. It's one of the few words I instinctively misspell... So I think they may be on to something here.
But Boz, there are five letter words on this map. That is funny, but so sad to me because this is the age of the internet, we have portable dictionaries. wth?
I do the same, just the word and " define".
Once upon a time I had memorized everyone's (family and employees) phone numbers, addresses, birthdates, SSNs, professional certifications and numbers...I also knew all the customer's and vendor's account numbers, addresses, phone numbers...now I just tap a name on my screen, and when my phone fries, I'm screwed because I don't have all that memorized any more.
If the power goes out, can you make purchases? Or do stores just shut down because adding, figuring sales tax and making change is too much without a calculator/computer?
Technology is wonderful. It also makes us lazy. What you don't use, you lose.
Oh yeah, I know what you mean about phone numbers and I do not own a cellphone as you know. Caller ID did that to me. lmao
I must be weird, or maybe it's the repetition, but my spelling / grammar skills have genuinely improved with the advent of the net / google instant search world. Or it seems that way to me...
True that on the last part :)
My spelling has improved, too. I write/type far more when I'm online, don't use autocorrect, and do not use my own form of shorthand - which only I can decipher (usually), as I do when not online.
Haa! I do that too, the bizarre shorthand. I've joked that if anyone pick up one of my notebooks (of which there are a great many) and read what's in them they'd think I was completely psychotic.
Notebooks...I have them stacked all over the place! And no one would make heads nor tails of mine, either. Lol
Okay, I've thought this before now, but now it is especially certain - we're kindred spirits =D
My guess is that it's coming from outsiders writing home to tell loved ones what a great state Wisconsin is.
Ahhh... I like you idea better, that gives me peace ;)
In Georgia they can't spell "gray". What a hoot!
Hel yahh! Missuri, Texus, and callrodo rock! New we werr smartir then y'all! :)
The last time Wisconsin was a red state before now was the Reagan years. When Wisconsin turned blue, most of the smart Wisconsin residents moved to Texas. Now that it's red again many smart people are moving back.
