    I've always hated the phrase "At the end of the day...", when summarizing the consequences of one action or another. It's lazy.

    The formafication of unnecessary words is a wastification of time-flowation.

    At the end of the day I think the word ideation is pretty silly...

    Sorry bad joke... I'm not a big fan of the word ideation either. When I first heard it I didn't think it was a real word, and someone just made it up on the spot. *shrugs*

    "Pretentious" is a word I have a healthy dislike for. I keep seeing people throw it around without actually knowing what it means.

    i've heard someone else say that before actually. i thought the word is simple, and usually makes sense the way I've heard people use it. What does it mean??

    hahaha Irishdrunk, I was going to say that at first

    Merriam-Webster says:
    1 : characterized by pretension: as a : making usually unjustified or excessive claims (as of value or standing) <the pretentious fraud who assumes a love of culture that is alien to him — Richard Watts> b : expressive of affected, unwarranted, or exaggerated importance, worth, or stature <pretentious language> <pretentious houses>
    2 : making demands on one's skill, ability, or means : ambitious <the pretentious daring of the Green Mountain Boys in crossing the lake — American Guide Series: Vermont>

    Definition 1 is the one I'm more familiar with.

    The use of the lowercase "i" is really getting out of hand through the internet.

    While in a position to hire people, I actually received a resume that employed the lowercase "i" as a usage device.

    Guess who didn't get an interview?

    You mean 'shlick', since 'sh-click' makes no sense.

    But yeah, I hate it too.

    no, I mean "Shclick", and it makes perfect sense. "Shclick" sounds different from "Shlick", and its about ten times more disgusting.

    But if it's onomatopoeia for you-know-what, where does the 'click' part come in?

    Now that I think of it, it might have been "schlick" instead.

    Dismissing events with "Only a footnote in history" drives me crazy.

    Also the silly use of "Speculative Fiction" Dumbest thing I have ever seen. By it's very definition ALL fiction IS speculative. This is like saying the book is Fictional Fiction.

    I hate the term "concept art". "Concept" is just a fancy pretentious word for "idea". We should just call it "idea art". Or maybe, "ideation".
