Mike Reiss reminds me of Baby Yoda.
He did his Sunday piece.
Just checked and he's done 5 Pats articles since Sunday.
Hes on Fox Sports now.
Noticed that he wore a turtle neck and suit jacket with Gucci loafers.
I challenge you to go on twitter and see for yourself
You’ll see “you LITERALLY just made my point” over and over again. Maybe most don’t notice it, but it bugs the crap out of me.
THAT’S IT!!!! Do people not hear themselves?
Definitely a pet peeve of mine.
Not like pats fans dot com, a bastion of humanity's finest
Because it’s often completely misused?
It's used figuratively, but the fact that you can use the word "literally" figuratively bothers people for some reason
It's kind of like having to many credit cards.
Yes that drives me crazy. Someone says "I literally looked everywhere" or "that is literally the dumbest thing I've ever heard".
It bothers me more when it’s used but adds no value. For example, “You literally just made my point” really should be “You just made my point”.
The use of literally added zero value. I’m assuming many believe it emphasizes their point, but it doesn’t at all. Never mind the fact said poster already used the word literally in his 5 previous posts!
Hahaha. True but the word is lyrical but seems to be added for emphasis.
The dictionary actually changed the definition of “literally” to include “figuratively” because it was being misused so often. Sad!
Dictionaries include definition of literally that isn't literal - CNN
Goddamn millennials have control of our dictionaries!?!? Is literally nothing sacred? Wtf is next? Taxis?
My head hurts.
You literally have no way of knowing what people mean when they say literally.
Perhaps “they” mean to use the word “liberally?” I mean it’s pretty much a laissez-faire attitude. In fact, dictionary.com translates the origin of laissez-faire: “French, literally ‘allow to do.’” Hilarious.
Separate names with a comma.
