Some kid tried to type "hey hows it going" and it autocorrected to "I hate you I'm going to get a gun and come shoot you all."

Stupid iphone.

What exactly is the point of not disclosing what the auto-corrected message said? That's the part of the story that everyone wants to hear.

I hate when that happens. Just the other day I was sending the message "Can you pick up some milk, thanks." and it came out as "I WILL SKULLF*CK YOU IF YOU COME HOME WITHOUT MILK AGAIN YOU WORTHLESS SACK OF PUTRID ASSHOLES"

I mean really, Apple, you didn't have to make siri quite so much like Glados

In high school we actually referred to girls' breasts as "bombs". I remember specifically hearing about the cheerleader with the prosthetic leg having "nice bombs" at lunch.

She was a little chubby, but she did indeed have nice bombs.

Moreover, "gunna" doesn't autocorrect as "gunman". I think the sender was trolling.

No, that's a different incident where autocorrect led to a school lockdown.

No shiat.  Where did this piece of shiat site come from.  Not only are the stories no more than regurgitated items from elsewhere, the goddamn pop through ads are NSFW.

Opposing Views, not even once.

She was worried if her snowflake's phone went off, he/she might be next?

Hard to say, but I've had autocorrect make some pretty amusing fails before.

In the case of that one, i and o are adjacent on the qwerty layout so it's not hard to believe that's real.

It picks up words you have typed before, so if you typed gunman a few times then something similar enough it may well change it to gunman. Still retarded.

I believea good number of them, since I had one that went up.

Last year on New Year's Eve, we were still living in Spain and, as such, 6 hours ahead of my family. And, since we are a boring married couple with two kids, we were in bed at 11pm. My sister sent me a drunk text at 5pm on the east coast, because she is a classy gal like that, telling me how much fun she was having. I attempted to reply on my tablet.

What was supposed to be said was "And I'm already in bed!"

What came out without my actually reading it first was "And I'm a pretty lady in bed!"

Much chuckles at my expense, as the screen shot was passed around my family. Eve really my brother submitted it to the site and it was posted a week later.

That's not true.  There's one or two people that have higher intellectual capacity than cow dung.

Secret Agent X23: This story has the autocorrected text.


No it doesn't.  That story is about a Georgia High School and is from 2012.  Subby's store is about a school in New Jersey and is from yesterday, which is an acceptable lag due to the time from submission to green light.

I've had some funny autocorrect stuff happen, too, but these are usually some type of sexual innuendo with a parent, and the reactions always seem like a poorly written attempt at comedy. Like the "mom, eww" and "awkward!" responses. Did the person really think his mom meant to say that? And was it really awkward? Just seems really fake.

The fact that you can't comment on it makes it easy. When I scroll through Fark I don't even read the links that have no comment button.

"All procedures were followed and it was clear that the practice drill we hold in each of our schools assisted in readying the students and staff for this incident," Genco said in a statement to students.

In other words... "The students have been properly trained to obey when the shock troops bring the dogs to search them."

Yeah, it's easy on Fark. Other sites though, you have to be a little more aware.

Look, I'm really not the authoritarian type, but do you really think that schools could get away with doing nothing at this point? We have some nut shooting up a school every couple months lately.

I don't like that drills have to happen, but what the hell else do you suggest since apparently gun control is off the table in this country?

Look guys, a time traveler from 1995!

No one NEEDS a cell phone. As a species we did pretty well without them. But it's the modern world. Not that I think they should have them in class, but if they send a text to their mom between classes or during free period about their after school plans, I'm not going to go all "in my day" about it.
