i don’t want to live in a world where i’m not allowed to enjoy both Shakespeare and Ke$ha.

Wake up in the mornin’ feel quite Hamlet-y

Grab my skull, I’m out the door, I’m gonna act real shitty

Before I leave, overthink if I’m on the right track

Cuz if I kill my uncle tonight, he ain’t comin back

Cliche Phrases That Drive Me To Silent Yet Near-Irrational Fits Of Rage, #18 in a series

dduane:

"…razed to the ground…"

Seriously. (invisibly and silently tears hair) Are you living in a place that has a gravitational field sufficient to hold you down? Yes?

Then why is it surprising to anyone that when you raze a building, or something similar, it falls down on the ground? There is nowhere else for it to go. It falls down. ON THE GROUND. If you want to pick the pieces up and take them somewhere else afterwards, fine. But they fell on the ground first. (Or tried to, and just fell on each other.) Why should the word need an effing qualifier?

(Yes, I know that this started happening in English in the 1780s. [Gibbon uses it first in print, to judge by the OED.] I still hate it.)

(sigh) …I said it was near-irrational.

Well I assume it’s supposed to emphasize that only level ground remained where something was once standing, as opposed to for example leaving banged up ruins of a building in place.
