I didn't realize this until today, but in php there is one superglobal in the whole language, that was a typo and people use it everyday and it is always mispelled, but they haven't changed it.
HTTP_REFERER
the actual true spelling is
HTTP_REFERRER
but you have to use it as referer, I read in hudzilla.com that it was a mispelling, very fascinating.

Realized that when I first saw it.....but now after using it so long I mispell referrer all the freaking time. If they changed it back to what it should be I'd get syntax errors for a week before I got use to spelling it right ;)
