My friend took the Ct E-2 and a question on there was something like How many wires can you fit under a blotted gound screw. I never heard of this or is it slotted ground screw?
Any ideas. Thanks

You could always run Microsoft's SpellCheck:

Eye have a spell chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marks four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin not sea

Eye strike a quay and type a word
And weight for it too say
Weather eye am wrong or write
It shows me strait a weigh

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It shoes before two long
And eye can put the error write
It's rare lea ever wrong

Eye have run this poem threw it
I'm shore your please to no
It's letter perfect all the weigh
My chequer towed me sew

I had ghoti for dinner last night.

Don't know what ghoti is? Sure you do. Think:

"gh" as in 'laugh' =F
"o" as in 'woman' =i
"ti" as in 'nation' =sh


Along similar lines, columnist Mike Royko once put the Gettysburg address through one of those programs..... let's just say the computer version was forgotten before the ink dried!

(I was going to edit my goof...but Mahlere caught me first! :-))

Didn't I read that Miss Spelling got married? Or was it that she got divorced again? It's so hard to keep track with these Hollywood types.
