I can't see how anyone could possibly mix up loose and lose. I just can't. They're two completely different words. I might have mentioned it before, but a couple of other VERY common misspellings that really fry my bacon are grizzly/grisly (grizzly is a bear, grisly is gory and disgusting) and flare/flair (a flare is a flash of light or a thing to signal with, flair is when you have a talent for something, or when you're fabulous).
One that gets me is advice/advise. There seems to be a trend toward spelling it advise whether it's a noun or verb. Or should I say, weather its a noun or voib. Expresso peeves me to. Thow I wunder if its just away four thows uv us wit immacolate speeling too just feel supperior.

I can spell, but I have only an hour a week on here, usually, if that, and I type fast and don't proofread, so I apologize for the typos.
What drives me nuts are usage errors: "There are less cars on the highway this morning." ARGGGGGHHH. FEWER. If you count them, it's fewer and number. If it's a undifferentiated mass, it's less and amount. Think, boled potatoes versus mashed potatoes. You have a number of boiled potatoes but an amount of mashed.
