Don't you love typing words correctly

    Man, I'm so smrt. I just typed 'gargantuan' in a thread I made and I typed it correctly the first time! Do you guys ever feel super cool when you type a word that you're not even sure how it's spelled and you do it right the first go around? Man, I feel awesome. I can do anything!

    Are my threads getting more and more meaningless as I get older? Or is this how people generally talk when they're up to 5am working on their thesis.

    But really! That was pretty badass, I typed it, no red underline thingy, and BOOM. WIN.

    I love you all.

    DISCUSS!!!

    Lawls, someone said geodisk instead of geodesic earlier today. That was great.

    Aha! Looks so easy now :blushing:

    I was originally trying to read it with a Scottish accent to make sense of it (don't know why though...) :D

    Maybe you misread the poster's name as Jimmy McSnyder.

    Well, the family is from Minsk which is not that far from Scotland in the larger view.

    I am always happy when I get "neighbourhood" right.

    Wait, why is the spellchecker weird?

    Me too! It's so strange, it comes out of nowhere...suddenly "hear" becomes "heer". Yikes.

    I tend to make this type of mistake with greater relative frequency when I type than when I write longhand cursively.

    I think you already know the answer to that one Peng. BTW. What is the subject of your thesis ?

    Rhody...
