    Yeah, and soon enough I won't notice anything anymore. Not the most desirable development, in my opinion

    City lamp-posts - especially the ones with parts hanging over pavements

    When fork and knife scratch over one another when u eat - the sound - God should be fired for inventing it

    Sweet (candy like) smelling men - blah

    And finally rooms full of machinery - when computers develop conciousness and start rebellion we r in big trouble

    Finding an empty cup on a shelf less than 10 paces from the nearest trash can.

    Finding out said cup contained...a mouthful of chewing tobacco. With saliva.

    Having to hold back the urge to barf while taking the...the THING...to the restroom to clean it out before throwing it away.

    My number-one reason to NEVER EVER EVER EVER take up chewing tobacco.

    When people don't properly nest their tags in their code.

    Having to fix this when they suddenly wonder why they're having difficulties getting their site compatible with KHTML.

    Really bad English dubs.

    People who fail to recognize or ignore the existence of informal fallacies.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Phony greetings at work, such as, "Hey! How was your weekend?" when the person clearly doesn't give a shit how your weekend went.

    On a practical and intellectual level, I understand the utility of these kinds of greetings, but I don't know if I will ever be fully comfortable using or receiving them.

    Low "Fe", maybe? I don't know.

    I only use them when I actually mean it, which makes some people think I'm cold and unfriendly.

    Crap. Maybe I do that.

    I take a lot of liberties with language.

    What would be an example?

    When one is modifying a VERB, one should use an adVERB. In this instance, "fast" is an attempt to describe the verb, "runs." However, fast is an adjective. A more correct sentence would be "she runs quickly," or "she is a fast runner."

    Adjectives modify NOUNs and proNOUNs. "She is fat." In this instance, "fat" is describing the pronoun, "she."

    As you may have inferred, the most common misuse of adjectives is at the end of sentences where, if the sentence was modified slightly, they would normally be appropriate but are not.

    Oh. I see.

    Yeah, I do that all the time in casual conversation.

    I only use precise language in formal writing and when I'm having an inferior Te conniption fit! --LOL

    All languages evolve for the sake of economy. As far as 'not appropriate', you are correct. But not colloquially inappropriate. Eventually the rules will most certainly have to catch up with the nature of communication. As it stands now, there are many new symbols/words that articulate an idea far better and much more efficiently than what the rules will allow. Example: "He got schooled." Articulate the idea behind that phrase while implementing the rules. Go ahead Compose it's equivalent while following the rules.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?
