    I had the same thought.

    I hate all that telescope spam I get.

    Yes, I almost hate having to mention telescope mirror width. For that, I'd rather say "centimeters." AHEM.

    Was scanning my Google News widget on iGoogle a bit too fast and mixed two headlines together, yielding "Dick van Dyke charged with murder of Benazir Bhutto." Bit of a whoa moment.

    Not really a misread, but I was a little curious regarding what the "Does anyone have a ten inch..." thread in the Moon Mappers section was about. It turned out to be about Android tablets.

    To add to that, we now have the unfortunately worded "Single Males....personal computers....and free time on there hands" thread. Then there's the spelling.

    "Burning all exotic pets?"

    Seems like a rather extreme reaction.

    "Did Venus give Earth the finger?"

    My mind just sort of filled in the blank, there.

    Totally not sure why, but I keep misreading "Some questions about Decoherence"

    as "Some questions about Depeche Mode"

    When I saw "How many microprocessor chips..." I thought for sure it would end in "does it take to change a lightbulb?"

    "Quasars looking at quasars"

    I read it right, but I want to breakout into song and add ".... are the luckiest quasars, in the world".

    I just read "Coming to America" as "Captain America".

    Guess I still need another cup of coffee.

    Fact checking a reply about silk vs. water

    I read as "Fat checking". My finances could use a nice fat check right about now.

    At first look I saw "Where to buy small solar plants".

    Second glance got "Where to buy small solar planets".

    Only on the third try did I read it right.

    "Pre-life revolution"

    I'm now trying to picture protein molecules wearing bandanas and bandoliers. "Viva las protobiotics!"

    OK, so I just looked at "Proto star size" and thought it said "Porn star size" !

    I definitely need more sleep and/or coffee.
