    The past tense of the verb lead is led, not lead. One reason for the confusion might be that a similar verb, read, has an infinitive that’s spelled the same as the past tense. But with lead, that’s not how things are.

    Led is the correct way to spell the past tense of lead.
    Lead is a common misspelling of the past tense of the verb lead.

    Two Zeppelin crossing the Atlantic together, traveling in single file. The one in front is the Lead Zeppelin. The one in back is the Led Zeppelin.

    and it was the lead pipe in the conservatory!
    which we always pronounced as "leed" pipe growing up (we knew it was wrong but my family gets strange joy out of pronouncing things improperly on purpose)

    Lead around here is about $2.00/pound.
    In order to properly convert this thread to a polyasshat thread to more fully enrage the liberal left frequenting here...... (insert latest democratic blunder of your choice).

    I switched to stainless. It is better for the environment.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.
