    Default The Demise of the English Language

    Anyone else here really getting sick of the extreme overuse of "like" and "you know"? It's getting to a point that most of our youth can not put a coherent sentence together without saying "like" for every other word. I even heard the use of both these two phrases seeping into the main stream media. Supposedly highly taught individuals in the correct use of the english language.

    For crying out loud, if you're actually telling me something you think that I already know, then why the fuck are you wasting my time telling me about it, you know!

    I truly feel that "like" and "you know" are the least of our problems at this point in rgeards to proper English... Besides, if you are looking for proper English on the internet, faghet'bout'it... Current IM'ing is dumbing down the current tweener generations faster than you could say Cable TV in 1983...

    The question is not, "Does love exist?"
    But when she leaves, where she goes?
    I got the feelin' she don't know either
    Wait like the wind, watch where she blows
