Sometimes it's meaningless right at the start and pretends to mean something through repetition.

Some time ago, it was "uihhh", or "you know"

Now, it's "basically"

Clock.

I remember being up at 3:00am reading an Intel databook, specifically the section describing the clock signals and all the ways the various clocks interacted.

Clock.

And then, in that epiphany that comes to one reading a technical text at 3:00am, I realized "I just read 10 pages, every word of it, yet I have no idea what I just read."

Also, clock was no longer a word. It just couldn't be.

Clock.

I hate it when crap like this is posted. Absolutely hate subtard with a hate that could fuel a hate sun for a thousand hateful years of pure, unadulterated hate. I shed hateful tears of hate. Hate you so much that hate itself is amazed at my hatred of you. Hate. Hate. I hate. I hate you.

Hate is only four hateful little hate filled letters.

"Don't say a word"


"....Fergulus."

"Shawn, I said no words."

"Oh, I see how it works. Two weeks ago we're playing Scrabble, it's not a word. Now suddenly it is a word because it's convenient for you."

I read a book on management that was supposed to be by this guy who was a great manager.  I literally couldn't get through the first chapter.  Every page had the word "paradigm" 4 or 5 times.  It was used so much it became a paradigm!  The book was a complete piece of shiat.  It makes my head hurt what some people can write and be called an expert.

"Anxious." Everyone keeps using anxious when they mean eager. Anxious implies a level of anxiety. If you're looking forward to something, you're not anxious about it, you're eager or some simile of it.

This is what happens when you say "Fish dicks" a whole bunch of times.  After a bit, you want to go out and buy some fish sticks.  Oh, wait, maybe it's the other way around.
