Typos

I noticed this while actually working (shocker!), and I thought it was important enough to actually stop working and post here.

The top ten words I most frequently mistype:

  1. Chris
  2. Adams
  3. Eighth
  4. the
  5. Hornets
  6. Tuscola
  7. points
  8. stripe
  9. halftime
  10. basket

In other words, some of the easiest words to spell, at least for someone who knows basketball.

And, yes, I misspell my name most frequently. Insert joke here.

Why do we mistype or misspell the easy words and get the huge words like “antidisestablishmentarianism” or “lackadaisical” or “totalitarianist” or “bioluminescence” right? Shouldn’t it be the other way around?

2007 WGA strike

Why can’t the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) get along? Shows that I like that are now in reruns:

  •  Saturday Night Live
  • The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
  • The Colbert Report
  • The Late Show with David Letterman

Oh well. I can use my time that I would have spent watching these shows working…or not. I think I’ll just watch the reruns or other shows I’ve TiVoed.

Borat: CLoAfMBGNoK

Borat

Why are Wikipedia featured articles either incredibly boring or totally awesome? For example, the current one is Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. The one before that was Beijing opera.

I seriously doubt that there’s a lot of people who think both of these rock, or that both of them suck (although I’d also be willing to bet that there are more in this category than the previous).

Also, why don’t feature articles get sent out every day to those who have subscribed?

Procrastination

Right now, I’m supposed to be writing articles for the newspaper that I work for (the Tuscola Journal). Instead, I’m looking up random content on Wikipedia, Ken-Jennings.com, and here.

Why is it in human nature to procrastinate as long as one possibly can? Why don’t we just get it done and do other stuff later, instead of putting it off? Why?

And while I’m talking about it, I should probably create a page for all my articles. But I’m probably going to put that off as long as I possibly can. 🙂
