Man -- patience sammy! Brenda Strong -- that's right -- I DID know her name, I just forgot it. She's BEYOND popular! She's that face you just see everywhere and it never registers. She must have made a FORTUNE!

Isn't it wrong for a used cars lot to describe a car as "pre-owned"?

"Pre-" means... *looking up in dictionary* ...here it is...it means "before."

So how can they take a car, which has already been owned and driven by someone else, and label it as "before-owned"?

Doesn't that imply that it's new?

Here's another one...why do people CONSTANTLY say they "could care less" about something? That means they DO care, even if just a little. I believe the correct saying is: "COULDN'T care less."

Lastly, why do I have to wear pants?

I don't know but you used to be able to get the particle chicken patty as a value meal and you can't do that now. That's been since last fall I think :noclue: Maybe last spring? I wouldn't know -- i don't really eat fast food :giggle:

Alright, here I go. This "what else is new" phrase pisses me off. Ok, example time--

Say, for instance, Patty misses the net on a slap shot during the power play. I mean, well, it happens all the time, doesn't it? Well, if Patty misses another shot on the powerplay, someone delightfully adds "What else is new?". Why is that acceptable? I mean, it isn't 'new' if it happens all the time, right? So shouldn't it be, more or less, "What else is old?". Y'know what I'm saying? Help?

It's acceptable because "What else is new?" is, for the reason you mention, meant to be a sarcastic utterance.

My dad can't stand "Do you see what I'm saying?"

NO... do you think you talk in comic strip bubbles? I can hear what you're saying, I understand what you're saying - but i can't SEE what you're saying <_<
