More than a word, but:
"Can someone forward the link to the Mousesavers secret code?"
"Is ____ worth it?"
"Split stay"
(when addressing me) You're wrong

Like.

I mean, like, most people can't complete a sentence without saying "like" like 42 times.

Mine would be "+1", or "where's the like button". This is not Facebook or twitter or wherever the heck that comes from. Please keep it there.

As for definitely, I can not spell that word to save my life! I can see how people spell it wrong. All I can say is thank goodness for spell check.

I only recently figured out how to spell definitely. The way I do it is that I know the E comes first, then it is I, I, then E. So it's eiie. Works for me.

Not the word, but the definition of the word, or as it's used here, the wrong definition.

On the Budget board, "budget".

Budget does not mean spending as little as humanly possible, or being broke, or being as much of a cheapskate as possible. Budget simply is setting aside an allocation of something, whether money or time or something else.

The recent comments "I can't believe people are saying they spend $1000 on Christmas, and this is on the Budget Board?" definitely comes to mind (sorry, I said definitely, which has been mentioned as an overused word, but I did spell it correctly )

I would say that 99% of the Budget Board content is wrong for a board titled as "Budget..."

It is like {ha, see what I did there} this is a new word and everyone here is using it for the first time.

YES, YES, YES.

95% of the content on the Budget Board should read: "How can I XXXX cheaply?" or "I'm cheap and want to know if the quality of XXXX is even too cheap for me" or "how can I find cheap knock-offs for my brand-obsessed kids who should be getting a smack in the face rather than presents" or "I can barely afford my lavish vacation trip that I probably shouldn't go on at all, but I *deserve* it, and now I will ask for ways to be cheap while being expensive."

EDIT: Maybe we can petition to give the Budget Board a subtitle: "Cheaper than a million flocks of birds flying over Kmart, Big Lots, and Walmart". LOL

How much of a person's brain power is wasted learning mnemonics instead of just actually learning the material?

What difference does it make how the brain power is used? If learning the mnemonic helps you, then the outcome is the same as if you learned to spell the word.

NONE.

The brain is a pretty remarkable thing with a vast capacity. I don't believe using it to learn a mnemonic device is a waste of its power. Some people learn differently than others. As long as the material makes it in and sticks!

#1 on my list isn't just 1 word, but 3......

"Wow. Just Wow.

This is also way overused . Not to mention most of the time I am pretty sure people are using it as a substitue for calling someone an idiot.
