And while I’m no stickler on proper grammar or spelling, this spelling mistake is beginning to get on my withers. I’ve seen this spelling mistake in multiple stories lately from Taiwan News online.

Wu said that starting today, Taiwan will see severe weather, including lighting,


#1000

Well, they’re not wrong. The weather here most days involves lighting. Usually shortly before sunrise, I’ve found.


#1001

I feel your pain.
