ANY use of "hashtags." Seriously, where did that absurd shit start? Absolutely ridiculous, and just a rape of the English language. #killyourselfifyoueverdothis
Um, it started on Twitter. It is a tag - a way to self-database comments. It's quite a powerful tool. And it can be funny in certain contexts.
Pick your brain
To be honest with you (no, please lie right to my face)
At the end of the day
It is what it is
So and so is paying dividends (individuals generate a return on investment, a corporation can pay a dividend)
Misuse of the words literally and ironic, apostrophes, and when people enter a blog posting and write about how stupid the blog posting is.
How bout every lame ass catch phrase on this blog from pooping rainbows to 'we had subs it was crazy'.... The psuedoinside repeating 'jokes' are tedious at best...
I hate: when announcers say true freshman. It's either a redshirt freshman or a freshman. We're not dumb, we know the difference.
When announcers, looking at you Mussberger, shorten the team name like the 'noles or the 'canes.
When the weather is miserable and people have to ask you, is it hot/cold enough for you?
Fixin', as in I was just fixin' to do that.
Wicked to denote good, "thats wicked awesome." Yeah, I lived in the NE.
Trickeration. Who the f$@# created that word?!?
They just want it more, right because competitors sometimes say it would be cool if I win, but I just hope to have fun.
I should stop now otherwise I won't go to bed.
All of the tired memes you people seem to repeat every chance you get. If you aren't creative enough to come up with something funny, don't piggy-back off of something that happened years ago. That's why this board has gotten shittier everyday.
I hate "Iknowright", especially when people are older than 30.
Also, I'm tired of people saying, "At the end of the day, ..." At the end of the day, it's night.
I would just add almost every universal meme/slang that has been created in the last 10 years as a starting point. Butthurt/asspained being very high. "U mad?" and every variation of it being way up there. Etc. I just prefer personal things that arise on a board or group like this as opposed to decade old 4chan (now reddit) rehashed garbage. It's all just one cog in the machine that will (is) leading us toward a true idiocracy. I prefer inside things like jokes of Tacopants, general but intentionally stupid comments followed by "/11W'd" or "/RCMB'D". I feel the same outside of football as well. I'm so tired of hearing "epic" and "fail" in a completely slang position together or by themselves. Sorry, a news anchor stuttering a few words is not an "epic fail", etc. I like coolerpooper and personal to a group football jokes but in everyday conversation I am a sucker for literal context and use of words sd opposef to stuff teens said a decade+ ago. "u mad?", "butthurt" and "fail" have made it impossible for genuine debate in person and online. Banish them.
and it seems that "epic" is a big one. I noticed one I loathe and would like to agree should go and that's "beast" referring to a person. In any form or context "beast" can go and should have years ago.
Quick Question: At the end of the day, when you get to the bottom line, isn’t a “quick question” just a long-winded, difficult-to-understand, overly complex, mind-numbing interrogatory that runs on and on and then begs for a “quick answer,” despite requiring years of intense study, countless hours of additional research and extraordinary intellect in order to properly respond to the inquiry? . . . Sounds like I’ve got a case of the Mondays after having failed to get to the office during the weekend to use the red Swingline stapler to get those new cover sheets attached to the TPS reports.
And zero gravity dying a slow death would make my life a bit better.
I hate that all white wide receivers or point guards are: tough, scrappy, high motor, smart, like a coach on the field/court, and of course, hard nosed
Agreed on man cave as well. Absolutely horrible phrase.
Could care less.
I hate all the youngsters who use their fancy smart phones as an excuse to ingore punctuation and capitalization. I also abhor the overuse of acronyms and initializations that force oldsters like me to ask my kids or use Urban Dictionary to figure out what somebody just typed. And for God's sake, sit up straight when you're typing on your little doohickeys! If you stay hunched over all day long, one day you'll wake up and not be able to straighten out.
I hate it when people make a typo and blame autocorrect, as if it's totally impossible to go back and fix it. The best part is they will usually either make a new post that says "whoops stupid autocorrect" instead of fixing the old one, or edit the post just to say "whoops stupid autocorrect," instead of editing the post to look less stupid.
Blaming your machine for your own laziness and/or stupidity is thoroughly obnoxious and probably one step closer to the singularity.
"Irregardless" is a superfluous word since it means the same thing as "Regardless".
is people who say "living the dream" - it has become a smart-ass way of saying "my life sucks." I agree that "irregardless" needs to die. "not just a shooter" is something we'll hear for a couple more years... I'm not racist but.... (that's a horrible way to start a sentence). People who use nationalities/religious groups as verbs need to STFU also. I could keep going for hours, but I'm off to work. Have a great day!
When asked how I am doing I always say 'livin' the dream'. you know why? because it reminds me that life is but a dream and we are lucky to live it.
For me, living the dream is a mantra repeated ad nauseum to keep my self cool, calm, and appreciative...
The meme meme?
"Mike, they just need to find a way to get their offense untracked."
Great insight there. I think they are untracked, as in not on the track, so what are you talking about and why does a train analogy make any sense anyway?
It's most likely not a train analogy (it's hard to imagine a scenario where an untracked train is a good thing). The expression most likely comes from wagons stuck in a rut, where being untracked was a positive development.
this is a serious thread now??
Ok, I hate it when people say things like, "You have the Peyton Mannings and Tom Bradys..." when they really mean, "You have players similar to Peyton Manning and Tom Brady." Same goes for teams like, "The Michigans and Floridas and Oklahomas."
Everything on here is a topic that spreads news to everyone in some way. The "OT police" need to shut the hell up.
is easily "...he stuck his foot in the ground..."
Announcers sound so effing stupid saying this. No 90-year-old man ever hobbled across his lawn without sticking his foot in the ground first. The idiot who started this one is FIRED.
Started out as ultra-bros saying it, as in you lost your man-card if you were out shopping with your girlfriend and held her purse for a minute while she changed. Seemed like it was just guys over compensating.
Then it hit the mainstream and MIller Lite started using it.
I was just always bothered that people cared about being judged a "man", rather than just being.
