    Haha. The "a lot" description was probably my favorite, though they all are amusingly helpful to new writers. Good find. =P

    The combination of it's and its is probably the most misspelled of that list. I guess now people will stop making it!

    I'm glad definitely was on there. On things like Facebook and AIM I would estimate people spell that word correctly about 15% of the time. "Defiantly" is my favorite misspelling of definitely, because you know they think it's right only because there's no red underline.

    I do the ''loose'' mistake alot. What's funnier is that I actually know it's wrong.

    i love the oatmeal.


    why you should eat horses instead of ride them and the pony riding techniques are great tools everyone should learn.

    and keeping your tyrannosaurus off of crack-cocaine is a serious epidemic that deserves more PSA time.


    and this one is relevant to this thread: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/apostrophe

    These spelling mistakes are common to both the native and non-native English speakers.
