Once again, spell check in place of proofreading enables a dubious result.

In an Engadget online article about Tesla's 3rd-generation solar roof tiles:

"This is the third version of the Solar Roof tiles from the company and between the pervious versions and now,..."

I've looked up the definition, and "pervious" is exactly a quality one doesn't want a roof to have.

On YouTube there's a vid titled "7 Flirting Secrets To Attract Women Like Russell Brand".

I guess there's no accounting for taste.

Escondido Fire Department Twitter feed, re: the Escondido, California fire:
"Escondido has a propositioned San Diego strike team and an extra brush patrol staffed."

Really, that's inappropriate. Good thing it wasn't an extra 'bush' patrol.

Photo caption in a recent article titled Huge Flow Country wildfire 'doubled Scotland's emissions'on the BBC site:

"The wildlife in the Flow Country burnt for six days in May"

I'm hoping the wildlife ran as fast as they could.
