Oh, didn't you hear?  All that sh...  stuff was made up by the Satan-worshipping
fake scientists.  Fer real.  Actually, G'd made Adam and Steve Eve, and since
they got evicted from Eden, we've all been immigrants ever since.

German, Irish, French, and a couple of folks named MacDuffie and Graham...
Not quite sure where those last two came from.

well the Celts originally came from India and Central Asiabefore expanding into europe, and our very early ancestors started out in Central Africa.....

If this isn't a word (and I'm pretty dang sure it ain't), it should be:

dreckage: what you have when something that was shit to begin with gets completely trashed/ruined.

I'm too lazy to go through all of these to see if it's been before but the one that gets me is:

People saying crips instead of crisps.
I always feel like yelling "ARGH you are eating crisps- a potato snack- not a powerful and dangerous gang!!!"

Crips-I hear adults asking their kids if they want 'crips' instead of 'crisps'. Adults! GRR-these kids have no chance.

What also gets me is people saying Skellington instead of Skeleton. ARGH.

Well, we do not have crisps here in US, but Skellington vs Skeleton most definitely comes from Nightmare Before Christmas.

Alright should be all right, no?

All right is the only correct spelling, as far as I'm aware.  Even so, I much prefer to use alright.  Allright is also frequently used, but it just looks so wrong.

But - today - I wish to bemoan the fact that adverbs appear to be going the way of the dinosaur.  Extinction of this noble and reliable part of speech is imminent, so enjoy them while you can!  Ex:  Newspaper sub-headline:  "Tips on how to go back to school safe."  And:  "We played bad.  We deserved to lose."

Obama might be an elitest, but when his children where asked how their mommy did, they (or at least one of them) said:  "She did good!"

I might also rant and rail against "infact" (and the like) and "un-characteristically"  (and the like) and its corollary, "make shift", "high way" etc, but I'm afraid it's too late to stop these cringe-inducing trends.  I will allot no demerits for anyperson who says "alot" because, well, frankly, there's been a lot of water that's gone over the bridge by now and it doesn't take rocket surgery to know that "it's here - get use (sic) to it!"

And finally, please, once and for all, it's "definitely".  It's easy - even furreigners generally know how to spell it.

My Webster's New Universal Unabridged Dictionary ("fully revised and updated" 12 years ago)
says alright is an acceptable word, but that all right is used in "more formal, edited writing".

Haha.  Oops!  I'll also have you know that I spelled "your" as "you're" in an IM yesterday.  After reflecting upon this horrendous snafu, for which I was completely aghast (as I am for the above indefensible errors) I decided (together with Jennifer) that "fuck it - were not using apostrophes any more - theyre just too much work."
