I liked the diarrhea one.
But I’m still tired. Going on 4 weeks now. Will shut down soon (and not in that stupid robot way, T-whatever and all you fucking tards that act like you’re robots and play Magic The Gathering).
@10 Language is a living, breathing thing. That’s why I’d say you’re a pretentious asswipe instead of thy vile canker-blossom’d countenance curdles milk and sours beer.
Do some traveling–there’s morons everywhere.
rightbrain3 – I know what you’re trying to say here. I do. But please don’t call language a living, breathing thing. It is malleable, that is all. Unfortunately, this also leads to its fallibility and bastardisation. Common usage is the enemy, because common people are fucking stupid. And as Colostomy pointed out, most of the atrocities foisted upon the English language were and are carried out by Americans.
^you know how I’m not one to nitpick or be needlessly combative, Bacchante, but do you honestly believe the clusterfuck that is the english language is really worthy of such intense defense? none of the covenants are static, the fucking rhymes don’t even rhyme, most of the fucking rules are obsolete or have so many exceptions that they are rendered pointless.
It has evolved from a people who think that they are better than every other culture on the fucking planet, and have cheerfully crushed many of those cultures into the dust.
don’t get me wrong, I am all for speaking in manner that makes one understood, but – fuck following rules merely for the sake of following rules.
Bacchante-I agree, malleable is a better definition. My point being, and I believe you understood, that unless you’re walking around speaking Elizabethan English, you’ve dumbed down the language. Which started long before Americans. Well put, MsAnne. It’s simply America’s turn to be the most arrogant, entitled nation.
