The idea that 80 percent of the Internet would survive the first round in a third-grade spelling bee has to rank among the most ludicrous fantasies ever concocted by humankind. We imagine that Harris Poll, which conducted the survey for Dictionary.com, would have drawn different conclusions if they had waded into the world of words as they’re actually spelled on Twitter. Behold, and weep.
Never take anything for granite cause you won't even realize it until it's too late, so be kind and loving to your family and friends always
