Some tart on Bloomberg TV has used a word that really gets my goat: Scarifying.
As in "those debt figures are really scarifying".

Damn it woman, use frightening or scary. :spank:

:tantrum:

Isn't scarifying something you do to your lawn?

simple logic suggests to me that scarifying is a mix of scary and terrifying - I don't see where frightening gets into the picture.

But that is probably just me.

People who use 'transition' as a verb really annoy me.

I worked on a very large project, we quite often had to guy who did the "help" for the application, come to the office shouting "stop making up words" or “every word does not use ing at the end” after receiving the latest batch of documentation.

Even more annoying than "scarifying" is "incentivising". FFS it's "encouraging".

Bloody Yanks.

I remember driving overnight somewhere and something happened in Iraq, when Bush was in. He was to make a wee speech and the radio station went over 'live' to broadcast it.

Now I can't remember the context but Bush definately referred to the the 'Iraqis' as 'the Iraqi-asian people', I totally pissed myself. All subsequent broadcasts edited that bit out. (Bush's wordplay, not me pissing myself...)

And 'to burglarize' - what's all that about?
