    Bad grammar is not a typo.

    Grammar is spelt grammar- Typo's are not.

    Lisa's mistakes are the worst. I've never heard of a nerd who misspells...

    Yeah I've seen this before if you keep the first and last letter the same and jumble the middle your brain will decide it automatically. Pretty sweet.

    I just looked at some real job openings at EA, and found something both funny and cool:
    Career Opportunities: Senior Developer (22867)

    The Simpsons: Tapped Out - Software Developer
    ...

    As a Software Developer, you will:
    ...

    Qualifications:
    - Passion for game development, software quality, and effective tools and workflows.
    - Bachelor's degree or higher in Computer Science, or experience to match.
    - Top notch programming skills in a variety of programming languages (e.g., Java, C++, C#, Python, shell scripting, etc.)
    - Evidence of a level 20 Springfield in The Simpsons: Tapped Out*

    Assets:
    ...

    * Not actually a requirement

    So, actually EA is doing the best they can. It's sometimes really hard to get qualified people, I know this from experience. But it's good to see that EA wants their employees to be really into the products they are delivering :thumbup: ( in fact, they should turn it back into a requirement I think :wink: )

    Another funny one to me personally, in relation to some of the comments I made earlier towards EA about Tapped Out, is in a Producer job opening:
    Responsibilities
    ...
    - Understand and communicate issues facing various types of game play, artistic and technical considerations, and the ability to forecast the ramifications of decisions made during the concept/pre-production phase
    ...

    Too bad EA doesn't have offices in The Netherlands, as I would sure love to apply :D
