Brothers and sisters in metal together will conquer the evil as one.

As I begin this journey through my times
Notes will be spilled under childish rhymes
Of all the things that make me mad
Incomprehensible and iron-clad

Whaddya mean I don't believe in God?! I've talked to him thrice in the Megadeth chatroom!

Whoa... all this time, I've been spelling "cemetery" wrong, too.

I'm usually pretty good at remembering words' correct spellings after my errors are pointed out, but here are some words that have held me up in the past:

Dependent (dependant)
Weird (wierd)
Judgment (judgement)
Curiosity (curousity)
Eighth (eigth)
Accommodate (acommodate)
Anemone (anenome)
Restaurant (restaraunt)
Separate (seperate)
Threshold (threshhold)

...And not really a spelling issue, but the differences in spelling and pronunciation between "homogenous" and "homogeneous" really throw me for a loop.

If I can think of any more, I'll add them.

My most common spelling errors are separate (seperate) and receive (recieve).

EDIT: I can't believe I forgot "restaurant" (restaraunt). Just spelling it as it is pronounced... :P
