Did you know that 80% of UCDS students could not find the error above?

Forward this to at least 5 people with the title 'Find the error, its impossible', and when you click 'Send', the answer will be right in front of your eyes!

They left out the apostrophe in "its"...It should be... it's impossible.

Damn, I got tree'd too!

I got this in an email, and I thought it was impossible to forward it with all the number staying in a straight line. WTF??

Google can be your friend young Ninja.

The errors are grammatical. The email came to me as follows:
"Find the error, its impossible
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20"

Error 1: "Find the error" is a sentence and should end with a period.
Error 2: "its" is possessive but should be a contraction of "it is:" therefore, it should have an apostrophe.
Error 3: "Since "it's impossible" is a sentence, "it's" should have the i capitalized.
Error 4: "Since "It's impossible" is a sentence, it should have punctuation at its end. Suggestions are a period or colon.

At least two more errors as 1) It's not impossible. 2) Since there are at least 3 and if including the two you included then 5, error is not singular but plural and should be "errors".
