Saying "I could care less" when you mean that you couldn't. If you could care less, what the hell are you complaining about?

I say "I could care less" on occasion. The clear implication of the phrase is, "I could care less ... but not much less" or "I could care less ... but it would take an effort." I actually prefer it to "I couldn't care less" because it has a little more nuance ... because, see, you could care less if you care enough to mention it.
Discovery is not your parents' Star Trek. The problem is, it's not yours, either. It's the Star Trek of your asshole nephew and slutty niece.

I feel that way sometimes when reading fan-fic. *L* (Because the image of Miss Piggy cheating on Kermit with Grover will totally be burned into my brain forever.)

Fic ahoy!

Also I find the phrase "Oh my God" to be wildly overused. I may not be religious but I find it absolutely distasteful to speak His name in vain. Plus you hear it so very often it's plain annoying.
Life is very similar to boxing. Defeat is not declared when you fall down. It's declared when you can no longer get up.

Some people just want to watch the world burn... not because of the pretty colors but because after the fire, there comes rejuvination.

Yeah. Makes me categorize whosoever does it as "dipshit."
