"Basically" is the nerds favorite - on average 20 times during each discussion.
I *hate* when people say irregardless.
"It's not a machine it's an instrument"
mihi nomen est regulus.
im teh 1337! hahahahha.
well, irregardless, of any level of intelligence, basically, we all must strive to be understood. and with this understanding we can strive to seize the day, carpe diem!
Cathexis, post your message you left me here. This ballot is for you. lol Don't get me wrong though, if I needed a gameshow lifeline you would be my first thought hands down.
i say technically a lot, as well as neurogical synapse breakdown...
Nate: Oops, sorry ... I don't recall it.
Yeah, yeah ... I know I'm considered guilty in this category. But what most people don't realize is: For some of us, this is how we talk.
All of the time. We're not trying to put up a facade or put on airs; this is just how we always talk.
I acquired my vocabulary, I suspect, as a child when I spent inordinate amounts of time reading. And it wasn't until high school that I realized that everyone didn't talk as I did.
In fact, it was while driving with a girlfriend ... I made a jesting comment about someone being a psychopath. she laughed ... paused ... and in a moment of honesty, asked "What is a psycopath?"
Stunning revelation for me ... it never occurred to me that anyone wouldn't know what a psycopath was.
So ... I ask that you be patient with us and realize that, at lest some of us, are just like this ... we're not trying to puff ourselves up.
I've actually had girls get mad at me for using too many big words.
Beelzebubba. Whenever I see those two chimps I laugh and laugh. Thank-you.
"I could care less" just burns me. If you could care less, then why are you telling me? That means you have the capacity for less care.
Im going with basically, like Atomic_ear_lobe.
The words imminent and inevitable are commonly used by the mentally superior. Aint is used by the mentally incompetant.
Cathexis, post your message you left me here. This ballot is for you. Nate, is this one of those times you wish you wern't an "obsessive board janitor" lol?
"Utilize" rather than "use." I'm an editor for a publishing company, so Iíve seen this substitution plenty of times.
some people have to throw basically and actually into every effing sentence.
