So, get to work scavenging as much food as you can. In the immediate aftermath of the catastrophe, you’re best bet would be to hit the supermarkets. But the real question is, how long before the food goes bad?

Should the boldfaced phrase be "your best bet"?

Your/you're and there/they're/their are without a doubt the most common mistakes you'll find on the Internet.
Sadly, it's not limited to posts/comments by individuals. I've seen such basic grammar errors in even the most "reputable" of sources. It's as if somehow posting something on the Internet removes any sense of responsibility to proofread.
Or at least I hope it's just related to carelessness, not an actual lack of awareness.

They're different. They irritate me immensely, I suppose because they're not even homophones, so they're not typos. They are instances of people not being able to spell 'lose'.
When I see such mistakes in the Internet, I usually assume that the person isn't a native speaker. Do native speakers make the same mistake?
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
Not a teacher nor a native speaker.
Yes, all those mistakes are very common among native Anglophones.
I am not a teacher.
