English is a good language if you spend some time learning it.


A good language mostly appropriated.

Ban and neuter people who overuse "#"

So hehe, I think someone took too much medicine today.

Is it to help with the pain involved with passing kidney stones? Because you sound like you're passing kidney stones.

People would not be allowed to start every discussion with the word "so".

If you haven't noticed that, pay attention. Everybody starts their discussion with..."So..."


Oh my word, YES! I first noticed this about five years ago on a few NPR interviews and now it's everywhere. It's rarely a direct answer to the question and often doesn't address the question at all. It was the weirdest thing when that started popping up everywhere.

"Thank you for joining us today, how was your Thanksgiving"?
"So, I was at my friends and..."
"Oh that's great, what did you eat"?
"So, there's these new shoes out..."
etc, etc.

Yeah, the way douche rolls off the tongue is packed with a special moistness.

Triggered. Really tired of hearing that used for pretty much every response of disagreement or insult.

Oh... also, "legit." That has become one of the most abused and misused words alongside "literally."

Just having fun here folks. Choose wisely... or not.


The word I'm going with is "mine".

The reason I've chosen this word is because it's also a concept and one of the first things we teach our children. I think the world would be a much different and better place if we just stopped doing that.

People who pull resources out of the ground will just have to come up with something else.


"Actually"...
"Literally".
"Puck".
Like when Bobby Orr said to Greg Sanderson: "Hey man; let's get the puck outta here".

I noticed that a couple of people said, "Moist."
This is what my mind automatically gravitates toward these days when I hear/see that word: Link to picture.



As for me. I'd ban the word...... "y'all"
It sounds so unsophisticated. Glad hardly anyone uses it here... instead, we have you'se. Also unsophisticated. Permission to ban two terrible contraction-words, please.

There. You went and said it, "dude." Is every guy a dude? Is every woman a dudette? Just don't. And let's be positive. Too many "no's.
