I don't know if this has been brought up before, but I always hear people say common phrases with words changed. Maybe the way I know it is wrong? Example; I was just reading a known 'car magazine' where they were fixing a vibration, and they said so and so was going to "home in on the vibration" I always said it as "HONE in on the vibration" along the same lines as honing a skill. What do you all think??

I think he had predictive text set on his ipad when He wrote the story.

But only from America do I constantly here people say "I could care less" when they are trying to pretend they couldn't care less. So they obviously could be less worried! Stupid fucks.

Lmao! Yup, that one and "wrong place, wrong time" if it was the wrong place and the wrong time thennothing would happen. But if it was the wrong place and the right time then something might actually happen or if it were the wrong place at the right time...... but never the wrong place, wrong time

On a similar note, a friend was recently bragging on FB that he "past" the MENSA high-IQ online test.

Homing, like the homing pigeon.

Trust me, I'm an English teacher! :p


Both are correct....Though "hone" is a miss-spelled variant that gained acceptance.
