    Use of the word "very" in nearly all cases. It is a weak word that conveys next to no meaning. Consider that replacing the word "very" with another, more descriptive word adds significant meaning to a sentence.

    Also, use of the word "very" in the following way:
    This very day...

    What kind of day? A "very" day? What the hell is a very day? Like this day was more day than other days? WTF are you trying to say?
    Oh right, you're not trying to say anything, you just want to sound dramatic, even though what you're describing is commonplace.

    I very disagree

    What a silly idea to get rid of a key intensifier that exists in probably every spoken language that ever existed.

    Also, essential in sarcasm.

    "Very funny, kiwiMark."

    And in subtle understatement where other words may come across as too direct.

    "That wasn't very nice of you..."
  6. #1281
    In fact, get rid of "very" in both of my examples. The first one barely even makes sense, and the second would come across as a very blunt rebuke, no matter what kind of charming smile you put on.

    And it's far more interesting/funny to talk about say, "a very large hammer" rather than "a humongous hammer", "a giant hammer", "a collosal hammer"... In fact those ridiculous hyperboles are far more void of meaning to me than using very.

    Why did you feel the need to banish punctuation from your posts?

    verily
  11. #1286
    I just thought about the word humongous and wondered wtf it's about, because it seems to have no clear etymological origin. Turns out it's only been around since about 1967 and the best theory is that it's a mashing together of "huge" and "monstrous". So next time you use that particular superlative, I would review it in my head as follows: would it really make any sense for me to describe this ice cream as huge and monstrous? I hope the answer is yes.

    Just hope you never have to describe your fiance as such. That would be very depressing. For you.

    The use of the word literally when people are describing something figurative.

    Wtf is reply with quote? Anyway, Oxford, the MW, and Cambrige have all given up fighting this. Figuratively and "near literally" are now part of literally's definition.

    It tilts me when dictionaries add words and definitions in this manner.

    Yeah, why not just add as part of the explanation of literally that is often used to mean figuratively by people who are a literally retarded.

    Only because most morons don't know how to use the right language. So we have to change it to fit in with the masses of illiterates, literally.

    It actually started being used in its "new" way as a literary device. Not because of the "masses of illiterates".
  23. #1298
    Oh I don't really care about the semantics or to discuss them. I just wanted to use literally and illiterate in the same sentence.

    Movie trailers tilt me shitless. They insist on giving away the entire plot in 30 seconds or less, showing exactly who will die, where it takes place, etc. I don't give a fuck, I just want to see the damn movie and not be spoiled. Everywhere there's a fast 6 trailer I have to avoid, an iron man 3 trailer i have to duck under. And then there's the movie reviewing assholes, who go like "Plot point A, I really liked. Plot point B I didn't like so much. Plot point C had to die, I mean you saw that from a mile away. And plot point D, well, that's Hitchockian and Kevorkian and Kafka-esque all its own"

    Die.

    I don't give a shit what you thought about it. No one does give half a shit. Let the people watch the movie, without you telling them in a 2,000 word treatise exactly what will happen.

    Movie reviews should be one sentence: watch/watch now/save your money.

    But I want to watch NBA recaps on NBA.com. But for every recap you are forced to sit through 3 trailers. I WANT TO WATCH THE GODDAMN BASKETBALL RECAPS, NOT THE MOTHERFUCKING TRAILERS!

    I go to watch some movie, say, Parker, and now I have to watch about 23091 trailers of upcoming movies. Movies I wanted to watch, but now I won't have to or need to, because I ALREADY FUCKING SAW IT IN A 2 MIN. RECAP. BUT I ONLY WANTED TO WATCH PARKER IN PEACE GODDAMN.
    My dream... is to fly... over the rainbow... so high...

    Trailers suck. They should show one scene and that's it. But they don't because consumers don't pay attention to detail and merely see the most reactive and explosive trailers

    The funniest thing is movies still set things up like there was no trailer leading into them.

    Anyway, I got rid of cable a few years ago so it brought a whole new dimension to watching movies. I go into them know really having no clue beyond the basic premise as to what's going to happen, it's pretty cool.

    Writing a long quickreply at the bottom of the FTR thread, and clicking "reply to thread" because you want to reply to the thread instead of clicking "post quick reply". Then watching in horror as your 560 word strat post with deep insight into the psyche of poker players disappears in roughly 0.35 seconds.

    Stacking off 200bb deep on river with what I thought was a straight flush vs a full house, only to discover that I only had a flush. Multitabling PLO not such a good idea.

    And of course I can't add a credit card. And paypal or whatever also not accepted.

    And I do want that HTC One. Fuck.

    So I head over to Amazon. I have literally bought thousands of dollars worth of stuff on there. I may have some luck right?



    That's it. Fuck Android. Reluctantly, I'm getting the iPhone piece of shit after all, since at least that one I can load gift cards and buy shit with a fake US address.

    I have to crack something I want to buy legally, because they will literally not sell to me. Hilarious. Fucking marketing geniuses. I wonder how much they get paid for making such great decisions to increase their paying customer base.

    I'm preeeeetty sure this happened to me once. I was like 18 and I thought I was just being a whiny little cunt (even though I never said anything about it), so I never spoke up. Then, the next time I went, I didn't feel a thing, and my cheek was all numb afterwards and all that standard stuff, and I was like, "Oh yeah, this is what it's like; I guess I wasn't just being a wimp before."

    Did you intentionally make punctuation errors for ironic effect?
  62. #1337
    Usually things preceded by "for example" are examples. Although the comma action directly following "for example" was, I assume, unintentional irony

    We have a shih zhu that we got as a rescue and there are times I want to punt him over the fucking fence for barking at passers by. I'm really not sure how we ended up with him, some favor for a friend that turned into us keeping him, but he's a really cool little guy when he's not being a massive fucking asshole.
