A winner is certainly not the copy editor
Whether you're staying up late to finish your dreaded final term paper or you're sending a cat video to a co-worker, writing is really, really, uh really hard. Do you write 'flammable' or 'inflammable?' Is it ok to split an infinitive? And don't even get us started on dangling participles. The English language is already rough - now try translating something from Japanese into English while keeping the meaning intact, and you start to see why all these typos crop up.
You'd think someone would have gone over the final printed text with spell check at the very least, but the following list shows that even the biggest developers and publishers can let an embarrassing typo slip through the cracks. Hopefully after reading this, you'll see that it's literally unpossible to not make a grammatical error.
