It's the misapostrophization invasion!

I am in apostrophe HELL.

1. It should be 100s, not "100's."

2. It should be people's, not "peoples."
3. It should be lives, not "life's." I'm aghast at how this person managed to screw up pluralization AND apostrophization all at the same damn time.
And the most remarkable thing is that ALL those crazy errors were found in ONE sentence.

I'm going to go bang my head against something now.

You know, if I had trouble remembering where apostrophes go, I would just go all out and either put them everywhere, or nowhere. At least then I'd have a 50/50 chance of being right. (I think. I'm bad at math though.)
