X-TREME Blogging

Okay, there is one thing I noticed about myself.  For such an easy-going guy, I am incredibly opinionated.  I'm opposed to a lot of things.  This came up today when I was thinking about sports.  And I started thinking about "extreme sports".  I'm not sure why.

So then I thought to myself, "
Self, know what I'm opposed to?"  And then I answered,"What?"  Then I replied, "People misspelling the word 'extreme.'"
I would like to point out that it seems to be a little-known fact that the word "extreme" is spelled E-X-T-R-E-M-E.  It appears that many people are under the impression that it is instead spelled like such: "X-treme".  I myself am not quite sure how so many people leave off the "E" and add a hyphen.  It's even the same number of characters, so it's not easier or anything.

The list goes on and on...are these people aware of their mistaken spellings I wonder?
Well, I shall take a part in correcting this catastrophic butchering of the English Language by making an extreme sport that is so overwhelmingly popular that everyone is exposed to the proper spelling of the word "extreme".  I call the sport Extreme Ballet.  It's like normal ballet, but with guns.  That, and the name becomes manly when you tack on the word "extreme".  With those two differences, I shall forever change the American vernacular!
