Luckily the hurricane is expected to miss Japan and instead hit China.

Why did you put unpresidented in quotes? Did you get that verbatim from somewhere?

If so, [sic] would be an appropriate editorial choice.

I doubt the Chinese would consider it "lucky" for them to be hit by a typhoon.

What we are trying to say is "Unpresidented" is not a word.

"Unprecedented", however, is, and fits within the context of the headline

lol. I know more about spelling than you do, believe me. Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure; it’s not your fault.

Unpresidented as in without presidence - i.e. it hasn't happened before.

Do you need a better Google? Sad!

Why would I edit it? I have confidence in myself. I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things.

Check again, my friend. There's a saying that its better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you're stupid instead of opening it and proving them right.

Now there are over 150 confirmed deaths. That's almost half the IQ of the brain geniuses above!

In this situation you should use " instead of ' as the latter looks like sarcasm.
