"Duck" and "Shot" autocorrect fail

This week in the MacNN forums, members discuss annoying autocorrect issues after Clinically Insane member "subego" pointed out that the words "duck" and "shot" are not what they are looking for, but autocorrect always changes their actual, more abrasive choice of words, to those options. Today, "gregfripp" turned to the forums looking for help figuring out why the screen on his Mac is no longer viewable.

Yesterday, Grizzled Veteran "chasg" was looking for suggestions on a good USB 3.0 Express card that he could get in the UK, so far no advice has been offered. Also yesterday, Senior User "posthumanus" was looking for help determining the cause of his control panel (play/pause/colum/scroll options) disappearing when streaming video in full screen mode in Safari, a solution has yet to be found. Late last week, one Fresh-Faced Recruit was wondering if it was possible to put their music collection onto a new iPod that they are getting a friend as a gift.
