I hate people that don't know what "literally" means.

"There were literally like, a million of them."

No there weren't, exaggerate if you're going to, or be literal, but try to combine them and you sound like a retard that uses words they don't know the definition of. Which you are.

Which one of you guys did I have this argument with in SD?  I think it was Burrito.
That was me, again.  I checked on that, last time I remembered it, and it's apparently within the definition of the word to use it for hyperbole.

"Virtual" can be the definition of "Literal"? One second.

This seems like literally an overtly simplistic interpretation.

A theory is a phenomenon that has proven to be repeatable.

Never heard that technical definition before. It's a good thing I don't get pissed at people for using imprecise definitions (anymore).

Oooh oooh! I thought up some more.

I've never seen a character in film or television tilt their patient's chin up when giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. I actually yell at the screen over this.

When I'm serving a customer who is getting something for their child and they tell me their child's gender. I don't care if you gave birth to a mayonnaise monster, lady. I'm writing on your cake with red icing.

...Bears noting, given the thread, that you just used "they" as a singular, three times.

Yeah, that's another one of those things given general mainstream acceptance, but apparently so is "literally" used to mean the opposite of "literally".

I support the use of 'they' as a gender neutral singular pronoun.  :LISTENU:

I support the use of "he" as a gender neutral singular pronoun and females who complain should shut the fuck up because it would mean they have their OWN PRONOUN, ALL FOR THEMSELVES.

I acknowledge endemic sexism in the language, but I'm not going to go around saying "theirstory" instead of "history".

I try to alternate male-female singular pronouns when speaking of hypothetical people.  I'm sure I'm not always successful at it, but using "they" as a singular just creates awkward, confusing sentence structure.

Me too.  For instance, if I'm referring to a war hero, I'll use "he," while if I'm referring to an awful driver, I'll use "she."
