Like, I Don’t Really, Like, Like Like

Standing in the hall, waiting for the preceding class to vacate:

Rachel: “Like, what did you guys do this weekend?”

Ashley: “We, uhh, like went to this like bar, where there was, like, a band and we kinda, like, hung out there for awhile, and then we, like, you know, went back to Bill’s, like, apartment.”

Rachel: “That sounds really, like, cool.”

In the classroom, as a question is asked:

Constance: “Professor C******, is there like any relationship between, like, Hinduism, and, like, Christianity? Because, like, it seems that there is, like, a common theme between, like, Vishnu and God.”

Like, when will this colloquialism finally die the death it so richly deserves, and most deservedly needs? I don’t like it……..

“Life’s hard, son. It’s harder when you’re stupid.” — The Duke.

Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament.It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage. - Joseph Addison
The term informavore (also spelled informivore) characterizes an organism that consumes information. It is meant to be a description of human behavior in modern information society, in comparison to omnivore, as a description of humans consuming food. George A. Miller [1] coined the term in 1983 as an analogy to how organisms survive by consuming negative entropy (as suggested by Erwin Schrödinger [2]). Miller states, "Just as the body survives by ingesting negative entropy, so the mind survives by ingesting information. In a very general sense, all higher organisms are informavores." - Wikipedia
