    Literally my worst pet hate

    So does anybody else have a child or friend who cannot stop using the word "Literally" in the wrong context? All the time, no matter what you say?

    Someone else seems to have that issue too. (Not my sort of music and due to language probably not safe for work)

    Had to share

    Yes I should have taken the Blue Pill!

    We were so busy congratulating ourself of dodging Orwells vision we marched right into Huxley's.

    Usually followed by "know what I mean" or "like"....

    Very annoying!

    That's maybe a valid comparative, but what bugs me are stupid superlatives like huge, massive, and the awesome already mentioned.

    We need a dedicated grumpy emoticon to fight the use of such.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    This site is like so sick man.
    The enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

    Sadly the youff of today are literally illiterate. All of the above (esp. literally), surpassed only by the fact that you know have to watch them as well to understand what they are saying....

    Q: "So what did the teacher say to you?"

    A: "I was like literally.....(some facial or other expression, possibly accompanied by a grunt) and they were like (another facial expression)..." and so on.


    Oh no wait. Use of the word 'POW' tops any of this - I'm now reliving Adam West in his most famous moments on a regular basis........
    Nooooooooooooobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!! Our main weapon is.........
