Lose is what you do when you’re not winning.
Loose is what something is when it’s not tight.
Losing is the process of not winning. Loosing is not a damn word at all. I’d had quite enough of people getting this wrong. It’s bad enough on message boards. What has pushed me over the edge now is the fact that the game Splinter Cell: Double Agent incorrectly has “loosing” in place of EVERY instance of the word “losing”. It’s not just a lone typo. It’s a localization team that couldn’t pass 2nd grade spelling.
If you are reading this, and I’m sure very few people are… please do not get this wrong again. Ever. Please.
