Yes. "Wreck havoc" is my own personal biggest pet peeve when it comes to the contemporary language massacre. As for "loose" and "lose," I've always wondered if there's some sort of quantum entanglement with "choose" and "chose." Since people use "loose" for "lose" and "chose" for "choose," it seems that the second "o" in "choose" somehow tunneled over and embedded itself in "lose," turning it into "loose."
