Well, you folks were no help...but now I understand why. She wasn't as popular as I thought she was.

I had to use my googling powers to find her but I did.

It's Brenda Strong.

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?

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

Well, after watching almost an entire L&O episode, the ad finally came on. I am even more clueless now.

Do you have an inkling if she is a film or TV actress?



OK -- she's first off the chick on Seinfeld who Elaine hated who wore the bra for a shirt... she's been in a MILLION commercials and she's the chick who's dead on Desperate housewives. I've liked her for a while. she's guest star on all those Law and Orders and all of that. She always reminds me of what Marcia Cross would look like if she was pretty (or MY idea of pretty). She's one of my favorites that I've watched for about 15 years -- maybe 20 :noclue: She does have a bitchy smartassy persona - or an annoying victim mom type. I DON'T know what her name is though... and now I will read the rest of this thread to see who it was that probably told you what her name is :giggle:

I believe they use the term pre in this case as short for previously....although it does give the wrong connotation if you look at it the way you did...

secondly people constantly use this phrase improperly...it should be: couldn't care less...but people, in fact, are morons and consistently butcher the English language... :)

lastly, no one wants to see your wang doodle...nor the implied size and/or shape of your wang doodle due to your tighty whiteys :D

Well -- if you don't buy into Underdog's explanation here's another one... sometimes the order of things don't make sense -- as in the word aforementioned... that doesn't mean before something was mentioned it means something that was mentioned before -- pre-owned -- the suffix pre makes the word mean owned before.... not before owned.... so really your question/vexing situation is the whole rules of grammar thing -- no one can help you with that one -- it always comes down to "because that's the way it is" and "you'll get used to it and understand after a while" .... :doh1: so annoying!

So why don't people say "I could care more" :noclue:

and why did anyone even START to say Irregardless? and why did so many people follow suit?

and as for the pants -- you could wear a kilt if you're not so keen on Don's option. My husband has one... my brother-in-law does too.

Well I thought someone would figure her out right away so I had a lot of patience. I dunno if she's "BEYOND popular" but she does seem to be in everything.

Oh, and CroMag: Utilikilts


Indeed, c'mon, lets keep this thread clean.

There used to be a guy who wore one of those where I worked. Everyday.

Great just another kick in NLDs crotch


Whaddya know about NLD ya late comer you! :P

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?
