Q: Legitimacy of the word "imput"

Adam KatzI see Merriam Webster defines "imput" as a "variant of input" but no other dictionaries have entries (unless you count the Urban Dictionary's "The usual idiotic misspelling of the word input"). Google Ngram has entries for "imput" in books, including a spike in the late 1970s, but even that spike...

noöne seems to have noted that impute is a word.
at least some of the ngrams stuff is bad OCR (actually "input") and some of it is to do with impute

Putin's "election". An independent observer covertly recorded her discussion with a history teacher who tampered with votes, fraudulently raising the count for United Russia.
The history teacher, being caught, tries to bribe the observer and launches into a political discussion about how Putin is a great man who "made Russia rise up from its knees" (a stock phrase of Putin lovers).
@RegDwigнt - what do you think?

@FaheemMitha "Young pioneers trying to change the course of Russian history"
 
@CowperKettle Is that a quote? And if so, about who?
If it's about Lenin and his gang of thugs, it's very inaccurate.
 
@FaheemMitha It's a joke, the title of the photoshopped picture.
 
@CowperKettle What is the subject of the photoshopped picture?
The person in the black coat looks like Lenin to my inexpert eyes.

> Someone else brought in an old-fashioned phone. The phone was a local celebrity, referred to as a “portable polygraph” — a military-issue field phone with an inductor. A pair of wires came out of the machine, which were promptly wrapped around my thumbs.

@CowperKettle one might say, by that criterion alone that it is a bit undemocratic to allow such long tenure.

@CowperKettle Putin’s election got minimal press attention (not really news, I guess). But Germany, now that’s news. Whatever are they to do without Merkel, what will the coalition look like, etc.
