What's the criticality of that word ? We'd better socialize on it and see what synergies develop.

I will say that I STEP on the misuse of the word "Verbiage" quite brutally.

Boss: "Can you add some verbiage to this ?"
Me:" You really want me to add useless words to the document ?" (includes link to actual definition of the word)
Boss:" Oh."

'constrievence' - is a word that was made up by my mother's family to mean whatever you want it to mean. I've used it many times and have never been challenged.

Are you sure you don't have the bandwidth? Surely you can devote some cycles to the project!

Well, at least the boss says “verb-i-age.” Guess he doesn’t work for ESPN or the NFL, where something known as “verbage” reigns supreme.



My life goes smoothly and in regular intervals

How do you spell "verbose"?
W-O-R-D-Y



San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

Serves them right for completely reversing the meaning of the word “sick.”

(Although our generation did the exact same thing for the word “bad.”)



It is what it is.

They're just trying to sound "eriudite."

Yeah, it's going to be epic!

Groan. That’s another one. Another annoying trend is that “happen” has fallen into disfavor. Everything “transpires” now.

Sadly, it's not only ESPN and the NFL.
