Bah, it's because most typos foul up either the first or last letter of the word, I bet (most common typo being: teh=the). Then again, I've been known to substitute whole words for other words when low on caffeine...and that makes for a sentence that makes no sense whatsoever. Heh. At any rate, looking at my keyboard....the most used keys must be the space bar, enter key, letter e, shift and, you guessed it, the backspace key (which I used quite a few times in writing this).

PS I sent the same little snippet to a friend yesterday as I received it from one of the mailing list doohickeys that crowd my inbox on a daily basis ;)
