God, I love semantics.

This link is to the annual Lake Superior State University's List of Words to Be Banished from the Queen's English for Mis-use, Over-use and General Uselessness. I love that "going green" is making more than just me nauseated, as well as the word "Maverick." I used to like that word. Such a shame.

It's kind of funny, though, that the list comes direct from the U.P. (this must be said with a very heavy Wisconsin accent for effect), as they say Yah instead of Yes. But whatever. The list is something I find interesting, and people in the U.P. are really pretty cool for the amount of cold they have to endure.
