There are some words and phrases that have been making my spine convulse involuntarily recently..the worst offender is the word

Random

As in entitling your not so random folder of BEBO pics of you and your mates mugging down the pub as random

As in referring to a person who wears bobbly hats and wack t-shirts as random..referring to single individuals as random is the most luidicrous misuse of a word I have ever encountered, worsened by the fact that the word does have the associative power through its now common misusage for me to divine the underlying meaning signified by such an application...ie. it invokes an image of the sort of total spanner that refers to themselves as 'mad' case in point big brother contestants..who really abuse the word random.

As in the worst phrase of all..random, prefaced by..That's soooooo

So, ignoring its mathematical and scientific importance, if I could consign one word to Room 101 it would have to be random...
