Powerpoint fun

Powerpoint doesn’t have the term “decoherence” in its native vocabulary. If you ask the spell-checker what it thinks you may have meant to type, it has one suggestion: lecherous.

Imagine what a sentence would look like if you actually did mean to type lecherous and somehow typed decoherence instead.

One thought on “Powerpoint fun

  1. Incoherence seems to be the fitting word here, unless I meant “pervy”?

    I see how they got lecherous, there’s a “her”, an “ec”, and an “o”. And the other letters are also on the keyboard, and there is a statistical chance that you had a small fit and typed in a real word, albeit one that isn’t in their dictionary.

    This proves why people shouldn’t trust spell checkers, and why Microsoft needs some better algorithms.
