@Nucky Nolan  LOL!  Nah...just prone to be irritated more than warranted.   ;)

It confuses me more than it irritates me. How can people, who aren't EASL, not know how to use "than" and "then"?

@Nucky Nolan  Never thought of that.  Now I'm doubting myself and am thinking that I sound like an old fogie. Thanks man!  ;)  Can I assume that you've been around a person like that?  Fortunately I haven't.  Well...some family, but they seemed "normal."   All I can think about now is a Pepperidge Farm commercial or Wilfred Brimley.  Maybe an episode of The Waltons.  ;D

Oh, I'm not referring to you. I'm mostly talking about certain people, like Greg Gutfeld and others. They're middle aged men who sound like Methuselah. As for Wilfred Brimley, he's likely been an old man since birth.

Mostly people who refuse to grasp the brilliance of 80s music, right?

You better redo the math. '80s singers ain't Spring chickens.

'Problematic'.

It's just a problem, it's not problematic. This is Americans trying to prove they know a long word by squeezing another two irrelevant syllables out of it. We know most of them communicate through a combination of grunts and howls anyway, so it's not like they're fooling anybody.

Farts and burps carry significant meaning with Americans, too.

It's a word favored by PC nitwits, who use it to describe things that aren't really a problem at all. I find that to be problematic.

"I was born ready"

No you weren't: You weighed less than a medium sized turkey, you were almost blind, you were bloody, and there's a real chance your mom pooped on you.

Hey little baby, catch this medicine ball!!  :o

Look! Somebody threw a medicine ball at me when I was three hours old. Sorry, but I'm still a little jaded about the whole thing. It was a heck of an ordeal to endure at such a young age and to make the matter even worse, I was being circumcised at the time!!!  Gadzooks!!!  Youza!!!!

Good-Night Nurse!!

That sucks, the medicine ball swat reflex only kicks in during our fourth hour out of the womb.

I recognize that last line. It comes from the world's worst health insurance plan.
