Not just on that show. It's suddenly ubiquitous.
So what are you sayin'?
I'm saying Miles Davis started it. I've always heard his band just wanted to call it What. This is ironic, since Miles always said it's the note you don't play.
That WAS me being a smart-ass.
A popular sandwich chain promises that their food is made from "100% clean ingredients". WTF does that mean?
You won't find a live caterpillar in your fresh spinach?
^^Yes, that happened to me once, back in the 80's, except it was a spinach and cheese omelette.....
People that poke along in front of you and as the light at the intersection you are coming to turns red they floor it and run the light leaving you now behind 30 cars that are pouring in from the side street.
Or, you're waiting at a stop sign to turn onto a main road and an oncoming vehicle floors it so you can't go, and then when they realize you aren't going to go, they slow back down.
Ah, the aggressive "there is no way you are getting in front of me" move. I get the similar one all the time where I'm going 70 in the slow lane and a car is multiple car lengths behind me doing 68 in the fast lane; as we close in on a vehicle doing 65 in the slow lane the car behind me speeds up just enough to keep me from getting over to pass the slower car.
That is why I dread driving I5 through California. It is a non-stop chain of a vehicle 'passing' one that is going 1 mph slower and a huge line of cars waiting to get past both of them. And all the idiots that fly up the right hand lane and shove their way into the barely a car length in front of a car that has been waiting for miles for their chance to get around the big rig.
And how about when you're driving at 70 in the slow lane and somebody wants to hang in your blind spot in the passing lane.
CBS putting those large banners at the bottom of the screen during their prime time shows. I'd guesstimate they take up maybe 15% of the screen.
As a former brewery employee:
Draft is typically sent to the keg straight from the fermenting tanks with only filtering and specific gravity correction. Maybe some UV treatment. It stays cold until you get served (at least it should remain cold). Bottle and canned beer is Pasteurized (heated up) after filling.
That's why canned Coors used to taste good. Cold bottled/canned and shipped cold. It tastes like dishwater now...maybe they changed things in the last few decades.

We all make errors writing or posting in forums. The English language is complicated.
Taste buds change, too.
All the hipsters whose every 2nd/3rd word outta their moths is "AWESOME !!!" No you Dingleberries, a new kitchen sink, house windows or milady's smock are NOT "AWESOME !!!", but the USS Enterprise, the Queen Mary, a747 or even that dreadful Airbus 380, ARE "AWESOME !!!" Can't you small-minded lot find some other descriptive appellation to run into the ground ? Hay-Zoos. Another thing that flies all over me are parents who will not make their progeny BEHAVE in hospitals, restaurants, other public places. No, you horse faced harpy, your idiot spoor running at full tilt amongst the tables is most assuredly NOT the cutest, most adorable child that ever was-Especially when he/her/it launches into the "Whistle Register" that ALL tykes apparently MUST do nowadays. OK, I could not do that when I was a tadpole, even then my voice was too low. But if I HAD been able to do it, I would have been snatched up forthwith, taken to the bathroom facilities by one of my parental units, & I likely would NOT have been able to have sat down comfortably for a day or 2 My dad would be replacing the skinny belt in his trousers, & my mom would have been apologizing to EVERYONE in the whole joint about how bad her child was, but THEY wouldn't have to worry about him, 'cause I wouldn't be coming back there till about 1980 or maybe even later. Oh, it wasn't THAT bad, I never got Keelhauled THAT badly, but the threat was there, & I never called their bluff. I DID do my best Whorf from "Next Generation" imitation-Growling angrily at this one young Beauzeau who kept kicking my chair in this one greasy spoon... Little shyte finally quit & I ended up making friends w/him. But I think he figured I was about ready to eat him-Which was EXACTLY the reaction I wanted... (Grin)
I am with you on this.
I made this point at a recent meeting I was at. Once , the Sunset or the Universe or spectacular Waterfall would be described as Awesome. Not an icecream or some pop stars video
My biggest peave is seeing vintage Altec 19s with a $3 houseplant sitting atop 1 speaker and the other has an incense holder burning away atop The speaker ,that's when I wish I was Darth Vader and could choke somebody via video monitor .
Yes, but was it a clean caterpillar?
