i think  both hijinks and high jinks are acceptable.

this is something I'm pretty sure sami pointed out one time, and until then i had thought i registered the proper spelling in the domain name, i wasn't trying to be clever.

so what i'm saying is that i'm real dumb.

Have never once seen it written as "high jinks."

since learning i am dumb, it stands out to me whenever i see it, and I've seen it both ways but definitely more often as hijinks.

both are right, according to the very reliable internet: http://grammarist.com/spelling/hijinks-or-high-jinks/
