"Like" and "Basically".

I know a guy when explaining shit, he can't stop using the word basically and uses it every other sentence. Unconsciously? He had a tutorial video up and I decided to watch it and count how many times he said basically throughout a 9 minute video. Over 50! I lost count.

You think that is bad? I had a girl in my spanish class last semester that would same um whenever she had to give a speech. One time I decided to count it out and for a 3 minute speech, she said um 137 times. She was saying it every other word.

I cringe whenever people bring meme expressions out of the cyberspace barrier and into real life.

i use 'literally' sometimes if i want to get the point across that i am not using hyperbole. but 'literally' in conjunction with hyperbole is annoying.

but bringing internet jokes into real life has been the worst. one of the most annoying is the praise received for making every day observations - the worst of which starts with the line "that awkward moment when..." the moment is never that awkward and it is never that funny. it is like when someone goes into detail about their dreams. they should be events you keep to yourself, think about them for a minute and then move on.

It's pretty much impossible for people my age to speak without using like or um.

so-and-so rocked a piece of clothing at venue of choice. such-and-such other minor celebrity rocked some other piece of clothing across town... on the very same night!
nobody rocked a godamn thing by wearing a piece of clothing, you miserable media whore and wannabe social butterfly.

by comparison, a musician "rocked" something by playing some amazing guitar, drums, keyboard, etc. or a tidal wave "rocked" a huge ocean liner when it slapped it like a mofo right across the bow. or a cycling fan was "rocked" when they learned that lance armstrong was potentially stripped of his incredible seven straight tour de france medals.

that's the definition of "rocked," you media morons. so once again:

some known or unknown 'celebrity' rocked nothing by putting a piece of f--king fabric on their bodies, and you didn't rock shit by headlining the matter on your stupid-ass TMZ site or other irrelevant social gossip URL geared towards teenage girls, catty housewives, and uptight transvestites.

just sayin', is all. :)

I used to find this especially during public speaking. I don't think it's really the same thing as putting like after every second word. Just something you say when you're not quite so sure of what you want to say and are nervous.

On christmas break and been logging in to ISH a bit, you guys pick up all of your vocab from message boards I'm pretty sure, it's really painful to read what most of you morons say.

Alpha vs Beta - You have to be shitting me. Are you guys still trying to filter the world through this nonsense? What a generic, binary way of looking at the world. So pitifully stale and played out. Shame on you, dummy.

"rent free" - Hoooly shit, is this the only thing you guys know how to say? Someone insults you so you're living in their head, that's it, you're a big deal here on this message board, shitting on you is simply proof of them obsessing over you. Come up with an actual defense, f*ck boys.

Good call. "Oh, someone voiced displeasure with something! MELTDOWN! LOL!" it's like the "you mad?" shit.

'Literally' has become unbearable.


The worst. It has overtaken Swag by a large margin. Especially the college aged fckers. Even dudes overuse it, not just sorority hoes
