Because it's not that hard? Now anyone who clicks here won't say "Dude did you loose?"

Or "Don't loose that"

But this one isn't really that common, I don't think? At least it's out there.

Or, "shit, these pants are lose"

Now everyone needs to learn the proper time to say "too" instead of "to".

That one gets to me.
