Between Spell Check and the informality of texting, does anyone truly even care whether they are spelling something correctly?  It seems like a lost art, much like writing a nice, handwritten letter (and properly stamping and addressing the envelope before mailing it.)

I used to take pride in being an almost perfect speller.  But it's funny:  Since I've been out of high school, I have gotten progressively worse at it.

Here it is!  The map of most misspelled words for every state.  (Click it to see the states that got cut off.)


By the way:  Consider how many times people must be attempting to write all these words in order for them to be the most commonly misspelled.  You go, New Hampshire!  (Literally!)
