You know that thing where you mis-type a word by one letter and you click on the spell check thing and it suggests something that is even further away from the word you misspelt..

I just mis-typed the word exactly and I clicked on the spell checker to be presented with Excalibur....



Did I really want to write about a fictional sword, not 'exactly' which was just 1 letter away.....??? huh.gif

To something a bit related:

Masseødelæggelsesvåben, this is a word in danish which means weapons of mass destruction.
How come every telephone in Denmark have been able to spell and suggest this the last ten years,
when I can't write words half that long with spell check.
How often do I use Masseødelæggelsesvåben in my every day texting life?
