Spellcheck your ID now people.

Belgium, or Belguim has misspelled its name on some ID's to confuse counterfeiters. Sounds like a good plan, but then they add something that had me pull out my ID.
BRUSSELS – A new Belgian electronic identity card contains typos introduced deliberately to confound potential fraudsters, Belga reported on Tuesday.

According to Luc Vanneste, of the government department in charge of issuing the cards, other errors will be printed on the card to further confound fraudsters.

A similar system has proved successful in the United States.
So now I am checking my ID to see if I live in Temmessee or the Umited Slates of Amerika.
