Life and deaf? Seriously? People SAY that? Sheesh. That's worse than "supposably".

I'm completely serious. You get exposed to a lot of this when you live in Columbus, Ohio, a blue county in the middle of a mostly red state.

Yikes, you have my sympathy. Fortunately, people in England appear to be better spoken than many others I've been around. The ideas aren't necessarily better, but at least I don't get exposed to as much "orientate" or "supposably".
