perstephane - but spellcheck still should have picked it up, because "labtop" is not a word. OP - yes, you're stupid. I can understand some 70 year old guy who's never owned a computer not knowing the right word, but how can you OWN a laptop without knowing what it's called?
yeah and when i was little i thought ornaments were called ordaments and perhaps was called ferhaps, but then i turned 8 and i could spell and speak properly. woah that sounded rude when i go back and read that. haha sorry. i'm just saying that op deserves it because she's an adult and her kid can spell better than she can. well, that's also an FHL because she's a little slow. sorry, op but you need to learn to spell laptop before you use one. because you are going to have to spell more difficult words than that while using it. good luck getting the job though haha :)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duct_tape have fun reading up, not only does it state the creation of duct tape during WW2 in also mentions the fact that it should not be used ducts. Later in the 1970s when it was actually used on ducts its name changed along with its colour (to silver) to suit the work it be used for. Tape was invented in the 1920s but that wasn't duct tape, it was masking tape. I doubt that you use duct tape on ammo cases, probably on ducts, like in Fraiser, fixing up a arm chair or maybe even taping some to the wall. Or if you have enough spare time, build a boat like the Mythbusters.
It's hard for me to believe you've never seen the word "laptop" before. How about ads? How about the side of the box your laptop came in? How about news articles? even television ads?
YDI that a huge pet peeve of mine. There is even a guy on TV commercials SELLING COMPUTERS and he pronounces it labtop. Seriously?? I really hope you didn't get the job.
