So much of what you see is merely misspellings, especially on social sites.

"… and other _assordid_ types …"

I guess that people hear many more idiomatic collocations than they
ever read. But, you'd think that they'd ask themselves WTF _assordid_

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
