R5, I sat through an open AA meeting and the lead speaker who spoke for 45 minutes used "like" continously. It was a painful 45 minutes and luckily she was timed and stopped when told her time was up.

But honestly she had been like a really screwed up like drug addict and now like had nine years like sober. So I hope like it was worth sitting through and she like helped some like struggling newcomer like. Ya know?

And even if it were, people use it ungrammatically. If it were a word, the "so" would have to refer to some adjective.

"I hate mushrooms; my sister hates them even more."

"My father is fat; my sister, even more so."

Begrudgingly or begrudging instead of grudgingly or grudging. I don't know why the former has become so popular, but I hardly ever used to hear it. Not really a hate, though; more an annoyance.

Rightwing pseudo-intellectuals like Jordan Peterson and Brett Weinstein have popularized the replacement of common words with academic-sounding terms, for instance “robust,” instead of “strong.” The only thing that’s “robust” is the flavor of my coffee, bitches!

Any common word that is spelled with a K instead of a C. It's old! It's stale, dumb, unfunny, uncool, and overdone. Don't let the C die! Save C!

The ambiguity of the letter C is what makes it so freaking special and fun. Is it a see sound or is it a key sound? I LIKE THAT! It's interesting, challenging, and a nod to a respectable history of English. Screw K, is what I say! K can ciss my can!
