I can't stand "YOLO" (You Only Live Once), at least how it is being used in pop culture.

I am learning a new vocabulary reading this thread.  I have never heard of some of these words.  Guess I'm kind of lucky on that.

YOLO is thug-tard for "hey, y'all watch this."

"Catholic Christians."

It just sounds so strange because it's redundant.

I still prefer it to "protestant Christians".

What really irks me is "Catholics and Christians".

The abuse of "actually"-- e.g.,

     "What have you been up to today?"

     "Well, I actually had some oatmeal. Then I went for a run."

Unless the eating of oatmeal is surprising in some way, "actually" doesn't fit. Listen for that "actually" business; you'll hear way too frequently.

Same with "literally." "My head is literally pounding" -- against what?

I lament the rising use of "on accident" instead of "by accident." It's "on purpose," but "by accident" -- right?
