Bullshit language.

Anyone else tired of bullshit language? Let me give you a couple of examples.

"Virtually"

This is some kind of marketing bullshit speak that really means "Almost". In most cases no one wants to say Almost so they say Virtually. Like "Virtually Fat Free" or "Virtually 100% Effective!".

Try this next time you're at the store. Find products that have the word "Virtually" somewhere on them. Read the text and replace "Virtually" with "Almost" in your head. Try it.

Here's another. "99.99.99.99.99!"

How annoying. Why end prices with .99 or .95? What a load of crap.

It's a gimmick to make you think you're getting a better deal than what you are. Apparently 299.99 is a more satisfying price to most people than $300. I'm not exactly sure why, but that seems to be the case. Or least enough people think it's the case to see these kind of prices EVERYWHERE.

That stuff pisses me off. You know what DOESN'T piss me off? Punk Kittens that's what.
