We love to make fun of people who get tattoos in other languages and manage to get it wrong.

I'm looking at you, Ariana.


But morse code seems safe, right?

Well, Orlando Bloom found that in such an intricate graphic language, mistakes are readily possible.

Bloom hoped to dedicate his new tattoo to his son, Flynn.

Bloom said that the morse code inked on his arm spelled out Flynn's name, and that the numbers were the date (01/06/2011) and time (09:03) of his birth.

But there is one snag...

The morse code spells out "Frynn."





In Morse Code, "Flynn" would read:

. . _ . . _ . . _ . _ _ _ . _ .

Bloom's tattoo reads:

. . _ . . _ . _ . _ _ _ . _ .

It's the difference of a single dot.





Bloom has yet to comment on the misspelled tattoo.

But why get something imprinted on your skin if you haven't double checked?





In 2020, let's all resolve to double check the permanent ink before it goes on our skin, shall we?

We may love the movie, but a certain scene may always be on the fast forward list.

Sometimes it's all too real.

Every person, and every relationship, is unique, and that includes what makes each partner deeply and truly happy, or annoyed.

Since all of us have our little quirks, it makes sense that our partners would enjoy some of them but not others.

But it's hard to tell how each behavior will be received.

The amount of shows that have aired in the history of television is a lengthy one, and the ones we know of are the ones that have been picked up by the networks.

There are tons of other ideas that have been pitched that have not seen the light of day and some that have been produced and presented as pilot episodes but eventually scrapped due to a variety of reasons.
