Also, I hate hate hate it when people use "genius" as an adjective, instead of "ingenious."

Suffix lesson:
-ous = adjective
-us = noun

I hate "utilize". People say it instead of "use" because it sounds all big n'stuff. "Utilize" means to use something in a way in which it was not intended- if you take a butter knife and utilize it as a screwdriver, for example. MacGyver utilized the heck out of all kinds of stuff. Your average Mr. Bighead Suit does not utilize anything.

OMG and don't get me started on commercials. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
