While typing up a Marketplace ad, I typed "hypaspist". Spell-check helpfully suggested "hypnotherapist".
It has the usual problems with "wargame".

Oh, and "hoplites" are "shoplifters".

So that is where the Greeks get the gifts of which we are to be aware.

Hmmm. Interesting tactical possibilities. Get the hypnotherapists to make the enemy act like chickens while the shoplifters loot their village.

I one time typed Pontic, and it suggested the name of a local guy who had brutally murdered his girlfriend. I would have at least expected Pontiac.

Obviously a system developed by the under educated.

Or better yet when it tell you that you've misspelled plurals.

Latest: "Zouaves" become "Suaveness".

Try telling SIRI to play "Gangnam Style" on your iPhone – and see what you get – we got "I don't see condom style in your playlist, would you like me to search the web for it?" Thank you SIRI, but NO!!

A dyslectic friend wrote a text about Anticimex, a swedish pest control company, and extra-nordic (as in the nordic countries, 'utomnordiska', in swedish) bugs.
It ended up as a very weird piece having something to do with anti-Semitic extraterrestrial ('utomjordiska') bugs.

I think I blew up Spell Check with "cuirassiers". It suggested "weirstrasse", whatever the heck that is.

I've had no trouble at all with this sort of thing until I started using a Kindle Fire. The arrogance of its predictive text in assuming it knows what I mean better than I do is more than a little annoying.
