Let's Get Technical

Disco. Tech.

I'm not trying to spell the nightclub for dancing. (That's discotheque, by the way.) I'm naming two things that are dead. Disco died July 12, 1979. Tech died March 22, 2018.

I'm no soothsayer, but I am certain taking down Texas A&M will be impossible. Why? Purdue plays Texas Tech tonight.

You're Out!

This article is making me uncomfortable. I’m talking middle-seat, no-legroom, crying-infant-on-board uncomfortable. I count [Owen begins his LeBron James impression] not one, not two, not three… Actually, it is three. I count three glaring errors in the span of a few paragraphs. The mistakes are popping up faster than the titular animals in a Whac-A-Mole machine.

Strike one: If you’re going to spell the wrong, do what the rest of us do and type teh. Don’t commit mayhem by committing to three successive letters in the bowels of mayhem.

Strike two: An s should be beside the point — and that’s important. This writer’s point is not well taken.

Strike three: I’m unable to vouch for voach, which can’t hack it as a coach. Take a seat, voach, on a couch or in a coach. I’m casting coach. I don’t want to see a v where a c should be, or cive versa. Er, vice versa.

A Pro- Lapse

It's worth noting that a word in this 2015 Fodor's travel guide section is misspelled, and that in a country where tea is key — be it Earl Grey in the afternoon or a cup of Twinings with a biscuit — the t is key. That letter's shift has Fodor's, like cured leaves, in hot water.

If prtoecting isn't your cup of tea, try protecting. It's good for you.
