Challenge.

Usually it seems to mean wasting your time and energy on some stupid crap instead of facing up to the challenges life presents.

A bit like the phrase charecter building you mean?

"Hamburger". It isnt even ham. Surely this is one of the most asinine words ever.


for a split second I thought that said "hamburglar". which would have been absurd, because that's just part of the institution.

Okay what about this one:

"Homophobe" is about the lamest way a word is wielded that I know about. I mean imagine some one bitching about capitalism, for example, and then the other person goes 'oh yeah well you're a capitalismphobe', and then in the next breath the person alleges that the capitalismphobe is actually a closet capitalist.


personally, i can think of legitimate, rational reasons one might object to capitalism. i have a harder time thinking of a legitimate, rational reason to object to homosexuality... unless you are saying 'no thank you, i would not like to be homosexual with you but have a pleasant day.'

A part of the institution that could well have been institutionalised at some point.

My biggest pet peave is those that are too lazy to pronounce “asked” correctly. There are no sharp blades in that word and murder is not implied by the word, so please quit pronouncing it “axed”! Thank You!

Irregardless - it's not even a real word, but people use it all the time.

In writing, the phrase "should of" or "could of". No. Just no.

No. And...

Yes, thank you. As bad as it gets.

Sometimes, I lay awake in worriment, like a billionaire wondering about how many millions have been missed out on (due to pirated music) specifically due to this exact mumbled butchery, and is it the real cause of my discontent?

It happened years ago, within the bounds a casual (paid) endorsement of a luxury car.

As soon as I saw the thing, I froze. I never venture an inch beyond such filth. Then, after a few minutes of fervent watching, at last, came the edit...but alas, the bastard conjugation was still there, and shone more brightly, like a hard polished punchbowl turd that refused to unravel, and could never be undone. Deliberate. And proud of it.

I still cannot believe my eyes, and wondered whether it were not a passive aggressive
portent of the future, of what would come of us in time. Well, it certainly was.

Spam, being chewed like cud, thickly masticated by teeth that are perfect, and sputtering rhetorically through
the annelid slit blued by Victory Gin....”is not the destruction of the English language a beautiful thing, comrade?”
