"grammar nerd" hot take/rant 

standard grammar and usage is dull, uninteresting, and mostly derived from rules made up by stodgy old white dudes out of nowhere, so no, i'm not interested in the "difference" between lay and lie, or less and few, or nauseous and nauseated, or whether or not "irregardless" is a word, or your opinion on double negatives, or whether or not we're allowed to end sentences with prepositions.

in conclusion, strunk and white can fuck off.

regarding lady gaga's "bad romance," a friend asked me "shouldn't the line be 'you and *I* could write a bad romance?'" and i was like, that's the most boring question about lady gaga that i can possibly imagine.

@Garrison So, so, true.

@naga @Garrison remember: i before e, except when nobody gives a shit about your pedantry

@squeedoodle @naga a friend of mine on facebook the other day posted a meme about the "difference" between a podium and a lectern, and i was like "first of all, no, and second of all 😴"

re: "grammar nerd" hot take/rant 

@Garrison @naga huh. I didn't know they were different things. Another useless fact for my brain meat. The more you know, the more you something something.

re: "grammar nerd" hot take/rant 

@squeedoodle @naga they're not (anymore), which makes it even worse
