I was sifting through old notebooks the other day and I came across a ten-year-old composition notebook I used in college English comp. It had an old handout of misspelled words, and I thought it would be useful to put them here. I wish I could give credit to the source of this information but it is a photocopy of some other source and does not have a reference.
Here we go:
Now it is here for your reference. Enjoy!
I recently found an article at MSNBC about a soldier whose brother sent him a radio-controlled truck with a video camera to help him check for bombs under vehicles. The truck became a favorite toy among the soldiers as it was a good way to pass some time playing with it.
Some time later, though, the soldier lent the truck to a patrol unit. The unit saw something funny during their route and decided after a few minutes to send the truck out to have a look. It ended up snagging on a trip wire and triggering what they estimated was a 500-pound bomb. The truck obviously didn’t survive, but six soldiers’ lives were spared because of it.
In a time of multi-million-dollar airplanes, efficient tactical satellites, huge tanks, and nuclear-powered ships, the Army made quite a difference with a $200 toy. I would doubt the Army would have a reason to send thousands of radio-controlled trucks over there, but a few hundred couldn’t hurt. I’m willing to send any help those soldiers can get on the ground. What do you think?
Anika and I got a dollar yesterday at Starbucks that had wheresgeorge.com stamped on it. It’s the first one I’ve ever had myself. I’d seen friends who had come into contact with one but I never got to follow up on any.
We went to the site with it today and logged it. I was disappointed to find that this was only the second logging of this particular dollar, with the initial entry from Savannah over a year ago.
I signed up to receive updates on the bill. To ensure it really goes somewhere, I’m going to take my wife’s idea of spending it at the Atlanta airport this week. I’ll update this post if I hear back from the dollar.
