Experiments on kids in the early 60's ? Well, I'm a victim, one year (3rd grade ) my classmates and I were specialy chosen to take part in an exciting experiment in education......Bla, Bla, Bla, to cut to the chase, I still have difficulty spelling after only ONE year of doing words phonetically. I don't know what mindless agency of Government, or higher education created that boondoggle but they should be forced to eat dog poo! Lol.
Funny though, I scored an 757/800 on my English SATs ( two years out of HS, stoned, on two days notice, on a whim, with no studying ), thankfully there were ZERO spelling questions on it as I recall.
I am thankfully for your polite and numerous method of bringing it to my attention, I can only imagine your head scratching as I struggled to find the correct spelling ( I finally had to plead with my beloved for help, alas, but grateful nevertheless ), armature, amiture, non-professional !
Of course, I tried to be " coy " and attempted many " fixes ", only to further exasperate the issue, causing yet another kind hearted liberty lover to speed to my obvious distress, please note that this is several hours downstream in time and I, though not for lack of attempt, had yet to strike upon the correct combination of keystrokes to produce a singular correct application in spelling of a commonly used word in my mother tongue.
So if ever you chance upon a statement from myself, that being over inflated with my own perfection I enlarge my EGO, please feel free to remind me of my proper size, by posting this thread back to me.
