A north country favorite that is frequently used here- if someone has skinned their knee/elbow, it wasn't skinned, it was skunned.

How do you post kids? Nail 'em to the post? Or just lash them to it with a rope?

You stick a stamp on 'em and put 'em in the mailbox.

"Irregardless" makes me want to drop a nuclear bomb on their house.

Probably because the worst person I've ever met (my freshman year of college housemate) said it daily.

Another one that drives me bonkers is "orientate."
Aarrrrrrggghhhhh!!
For fuck's sake!
The word is "orient."

Ride safe?

Safe is an adjective. Safely is an adverb.

I ride safely.

It shits me! There's no such word!

Irregardless of how you orientate your viewpoint, you guys are overexaggerating how badly people misuse the words and I really could care less.

That sentence is going to make some of them twitch in frustration....

Can we just accept that language evolves over time and move on with actually discussion motorcycle related topics?

Me too, no sports bikes, no cops specifically targeting bikes. Not that I'm deliberately speeding in the rain, but around here it's possible to just enjoy the ride rather than keeping one eye on the speedo.
