These are never the words I'm looking for, autocorrect.

Shouldn't that autocorrect be in the opposite order? If you Duck before you Shoot, you are likely to be hopping around and yelling a lot. If you Shoot and then Duck, you have a much better chance of getting away with it.

I was on a (film) shoot where one of the actors got a MAC-10. The armorer basically gave him that instruction: don't shoot when the gun is behind things.

He was sort of a gruff type so it was more "here, okay... here, dead".

I should mention though, if you're hunting, "Duck and Shoot" is what you want. "No Duck and Shoot" means at best you're wasting ammo, at worst, somebody ends up like Dick Cheney's pal.

autocorrect wants you to mind your language, young man.

I actually do understand the rationale for this. It's so one can ever blame their autocorrect for making them say a "bad word"

Today, I realized I've taught my phone "peenar".

They grow up so fast!
