Words are never enough, just cheap tarnished glitter

The word 'extreme' has lost all meaning. I was shopping a week or so ago and noticed that the peaches had stickers on them declaring them to be "Extreme California Peaches". What in thename of all that's real is an Extreme Peach? Marketing is destroying language. Not just in the US, and not just english. Marketing is destroying all language.

Words cease to have meaning when they've been so abused. Do your part. Do not use impact asa verb. Do not use words like "webinar" or "efrastructure". Stop saying paradigm unless youare actually talking about a model. Understand the words you use. If you use any of the words here regularly, please stop.

Have a good weekend.
