Can you stop writing these things?

It's BRAKES, not "breaks"
It's PEDAL, not "peddle"
It's LOSE, not "loose", as in "I am trying to lose weight"

These annoy me.

Thank you

It's tire, not tyre.

Color not colour.

Keep right except to pass.

Stop writing?? I was under the impression that writing by hand fell out of fashion long ago, replaced by keystrokes, finger taps, and voice recognition software.

See the problem is that in places like Canada, we do keep right and keep our tires on the pavement, but we like bright colours.

Wouldn't "Bycicle" be a better spelling?

To the OP, I'm guessing the answer is "no". People will continue to be less than perfect.

I worked on a brown coloured Raleigh Twenty today, it was nice that someone had already replaced the tyres and the stoppers on the bicycle needed a little adjustment, not that the rear stopper will ever be more than a speed attenuator.

Why would you try to learn something in school when you can go on welfare or work in McDonalds, play with your iphone, and think about overpaid people playing basketball?

I'm going to call this posts good, reliable, and valid because:

These are gross misspellings: Cyclosaurus; It's BRAKES, not "breaks" It's PEDAL, not "peddle" It's LOSE, not "loose", as in "I am trying to lose weight"

Reading this make me want to talk funny and drive on the wrong side of the road: ahsposo; It's tire, not tyre. Color not colour. Keep right except to pass.

Spell checker's need to be updated: Artkansas; And saddle should not be spelled seat.
ahsposo; Except when it's spelled asshatchet.

And because this is required in every thread: NOS88; wtf?

Can you imagine RoadTyre? Make me sound English. Like Hollingsworth. What's up with that, anyway?
