"lose" not "loose"

I have not vented on this in a while....

One wants to "lose" weight.  One does not really want "loose" weight.

If someone finds the weight that I lost, I really don't want it back. It's
all their's.

Its not easy when your trying to loose you're weight.
A body trying to loose it's waste is not going to waist
it's time on spell checks.

I saw a couple at WalMart today -- both of them had a lot of loose weight --
it was jiggling all over the place.  If they had loosed it on me I would
have been crushed.

Sam,

I have never liked the term "lose" weight.  I have preferred to speak
about using or utilizing one's more magnificent storage of energy:
adipose.  When one uses up the excess of stored energy, they will no be
worried about losing something.

I have found that when someone loses their keys or wallet or checkbook,
they continue to look for it until they find it.  I think the metaphor
also holds to some extent to losing weight.

So in parting from people who have decided to utilize their excess of
energy and to be able to burn it more readily I say:  The more I see of
you the less I'll see of you.

In  health and on the run,

Ozzie

The other ones I like are "rediculous", and questions terminated by a
period (a full stop) instead of a question mark.

Then there's the ever popular "your" instead of "you're."

"Irregardless" is a popular one.

That's a good one. How about affect vs. effect? This one always makes me
think. Affect is a verb; effect is a noun.  Effect can be used as a verb
only when it means to  bring about or to cause something to happen.

Which leads to amusing instances of the word "effect" having the exact
opposite of the authors intended meaning.

I hate the 'question mark' thing as well.

I find the word 'definitely'  is almost never spelled right.
It's always 'definately' according to most people.

I also hate it when I make a typo and hit send - then read
it immediately afterwards. :-/
