    Bloody dumb Yanks, I'd say

    Frankly, if I heard one of my countrymen saying "casted" in a YouTube video, I'd switch to a different video, assuming that the speaker had absolutely zero credibility.

    It does seem "casted" is gaining popularity in the spoken language, though: https://grammarist.com/usage/casted/

        A suffix added to words in the English language indicating a past tense.

        acted
        bollocked
        creamed
        disfigured
        educated
        buggered
        greeted
        hardened

        And so on

          Were they casted in aluminium, and then lathed using a dee are oh?

          "cast" is the correct when refering to a "cast part". I wouldn't put too much stock in things said on you tube and pod casts. While sometimes the message can be good, the delivery is terrible. And also the inverse is true as well. In short, you tube is like a box of chocolates.

            If you pay attention to all the grammatical, pronounciation, syntax and just plain misuse you will notice many, many errors of speech. One of my favorites: "Had went"

              As you know, English is a very irregular language. The past tense of "cast" is "cast". My wife (my authority on language) points out that your verbs are "regular" while "cast" is an "irregular" verb.

                  Politically correct schools? Where on earth did that come from?

                  Are you seriously suggesting that illiteracy is greater in "politically correct" California than in, for example, Mississippi or Arkansas or (ahem) Colorado?

                  Oh, BTW, you might want to use your spell checker...

                    I casted that bad capacitator in the bin, along with a resistitor and the transistitor. They were both bad- one was burnt, and the other was burned.

                        Very irregular, indeed. And the past tense of "cast" was "casted" but that fell out of favor around the 16th century or so. But it's appearance in both printed and spoken language is on the rise again. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective), English is a dynamic language that continues to evolve in both diction and grammar.

                          And you never know in advance what is the spelling and pronunciation.

                          To make things more complicated I learned British English in the school and nearly half of the tv series I watch are British.

                            You learned English, not American "simplified" English. Please excuse the correction!

                              Yup, California is definitely worse than Colorado. And it's kind of fun to bypass spellchecker and see who noticed.
