I think the mere fact that I can't for the life of me spell "genius" without first consulting the online dictionary pretty much confirms the fact that I am not one. Dammit.

do you think that is a sign that i should never eat again? because i can't seem to ever spell sandwhich or restaurant without hitting backspace at least 3 times and squinting my eyes once.
food for thought.....

E-L-S-E. Else. For some reason back in grade school (more like 7th grade), I could never get that word right and given that back then it was all about punishing the stupid, I had to write the word 500 times on more than one occasion. To this day I can't even say the word without spelling it out in my head. Else, E-L-S-E, else. "Do not do that again or else (E-L-S-E, else)!" It's so annoying.

I was about 10 years old and down the shore with my parents. I was reading my Dad's Philadelphia Inquirer (it was a rainy day) when I turned to him and said, "Dad, what does DEBTER-MIND mean?" He looked at me like I was crazy, then looked to where I was pointing and proceeded to crack up laughing. How often does a 10-year old see the word determined in print?

I have a stick ‘em on my cube with the correct spelling of the words inconvenient and inconvenience. Why not rely on spell-check? I'll tell ya why, spell-check thinks it's funny to replace the misspelling of inconvenience with incontinence. "I'm sorry Mr. Miller for your incontinence. Have a nice day!"

This reminded me of when I asked a co-worker how to spell "ghetto" her reply was "You are going to have to know how to spell it before you can get out of it" needless to say I laughed my ass off.

I too have a small list taped to my monitor. However my words i usually spell so badly that spell checker wont even match them.
Inconvenience is at the top of the list followed by:
whether (whether or not)
and the proper way to spell the phrase - "The problem seems to be..."
Hooked on Phonix didnt work for me.
