I've got this webpage that lists my pet peeves of common spelling mistakes; the kind of errors I thought people were supposed to be learning not to make in grade school. I haven't updated it in a while, but I should, because I've got some new pet peeves now.

The only two I can think of right now are "rediculous" for "ridiculous", and "lightening" for "lightning". That second one sounds especially stupid to me, because "lightening" is what the sky does after the thunderstorm, not during it.
