'chillax' or 'take a chill pill'

nothing would make me think of the benefit of genocide more than to hear someone say 'hey, take a chill pill'.  it's a particular kind of person that says it to.

i've always said 'tea' for dinner too, but if you want to find out where your British dialect may come from, you can try this quiz....

'bap', all day long...

Get outta here with your "bap" it's clearly a "barm"  :laugh:

I think the term you're both looking for is "bread roll"  8)

I will fight all of you..  :laugh:

"Everyone deserves respect."

A ridiculous way of thinking.  No, there are many people who do not deserve respect.

   Well, here are some that I don't like: 'feedback' when it means 'complaints'. Someone has already mentioned it, but it's one that I hate.  "The big reveal" when most people can say revelation and not mean "The Book of Revelation."

"It's not that big of a deal." (Why is of needed)?
 The President's ouster referring to an event. But logically the ouster is the person who gets rid of the President!

Wait... what? You can't just randomly make up different meanings for acronyms that have been established and widely used for like 30 years.

That would be like me saying like, "Oh man, I absolutely hate the UK!" "Wait, why are you trashing the United Kingdom?" "No, I meant uncooked kale haha!"

Like... PC has literally been used for 'personal computer' for decades.

Quote from: Wikipedia
In 1793, the term "politically correct" appeared in a U.S. Supreme Court judgment of a political lawsuit.

Why would you remove something from the packaging!?! If you do that, it won't be in mint condition! D:

... Please, Amber/Tiffany/Heather, spare me. You weren't so #spiritual and tie-die saree last week, when your basic ass was sipping starbucks, wearing clunky 'superstars', your yoga pants pulled way up int a rather unsightly camel-toe and listening to Chris Brown, through your phone's speaker.

flexitarian - if ever there was a social networking, 'hey, look at me, I'm different', attention-grabbing, nonsense bollocks expression, this is it.  you primarily eat vegetables but also sometimes meat and fish?  that's just a normal person's diet, you fukcwit.

I am definitely allosexual, but I'm not so self hating not to take matters into my own hands.
