I'm too busy directing my hate towards their word "snog" to worry about whilst.

The Cure fucking own.

Anyway, I hate when people say 'could care less'. This implies that you COULD care less than you do.

Couldn't care less = there is no room left for caring.

Don't worry Craig, she wouldn't cheat on your dad with you anyway
Being from Canada I should do one of those videos for the Brits use of the word brilliant and refusal to use the words isn't it, I fucking hate when people say idit.

Since this is the rant forum, I want to go ahead and rant that this misconception really annoys the shit out of me. American English diverged from British English at a time when there were no set "official" standards or rules. Considering the U.S. is the only English-speaking country that was part of the British Empire to ever declare independence from Great Britain, it's natural that the rest of the English-speaking countries would follow British trends when deciding on what constitutes "official" English spellings and language (though American spellings are not uncommon in Canada). There was no generally accepted dictionary in the 1700s, but the publishing of two would shape the lexicons of British English and American English forever, those being Johnson's Dictionary of the English Language (British), and Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language (American). And the thing about those dictionaries is, they were basically just collections of the authors' OWN PREFERENCES because there WERE no standardized ways to spell things. Prior to the widespread circulation and acceptance of the Oxford English Dictionary as the primary source of language in the UK, many of what are now considered "American spellings" (or butcherings), were IN USE IN ENGLAND TOO. There are even some instances in which American word spelling/usage is the historically correct usage prior to the declaration of independence, and Brits have altered them since then.

In short, do some fucking research before accepting this kind of BULLSHIT at face value so you can rub it in people's faces on the internet. What, did you think we just decided to CHANGE the spelling of a bunch of words for no fucking reason?

True story.
In the UK an estimated 60.8 per cent of adults and 31.1 per cent of children are overweight. According to figures from 2009, almost a quarter of adults (22 per cent of men and 24 per cent of women) in England were classified as obese (BMI 30kg/m≤ or over).

Anyone else sick and fuckin' tired of seeing the word "whilst" being used repeatedly on these forums at all?

No, but what is annoying is people stuffing sentences with big words and/or old fashioned words, especially when their style of communication is neither cogent nor smart.
