    Yes, I tried saying supercalifragilisticexpialidocious backwards. Still can't do it. Damn that Mary Poppins.

    How about, "I"? My ears are sore hearing, " I did that...I own this...I want those...I bought a boat...yada yada". My neighbor bores me to death with the, "I" word.

    Ban it! Then let people buy a portable hand held mirror. They can point to the reflection when they wish to bring attention to themselves

    "Tons" - of people.
    "Massive" - holes.
    "Awesome" - anything that's barely adequate.

    I would just ban giving weather a person's first name.

    Kevin didn't cause the flood, rain did.
