    "I'll hold the fort down", instead of "I'll hold the fort".
    "I could care less", instead of "I couldn't care less".
    Swag and Game. As in, "Who's game for ... "
    But what if the fort flies away, then who could care less? :eek:

    When people say 'on route'. Ugh, it's EN route!

    The amount of people on my Facebook who say this ridiculously high.
    It's pronounced 'on root'.

    'Union Jack' is a perfectly acceptable and historically accurate term to use.

    No it's only the Union Jack officially when flown in the bows of a warship
    At any other time it is the union flag

    It was called the Union Jack centuries ago, whether on or off a 'warship'.

    Okay, will do.

    The Flag Institute, the vexillological organisation for the United Kingdom, say:

    It is often stated that the Union Flag should only be described as the Union Jack when flown in the bows of a warship, but this is a relatively recent idea. From early in its life the Admiralty itself frequently referred to the flag as the Union Jack, whatever its use, and in 1902 an Admiralty Circular announced that Their Lordships had decided that either name could be used officially. In 1908, a government minister stated, in response to a Parliamentary question, that "the Union Jack should be regarded as the National flag".

    There we go then.

    Last night, a classmate replied to a teaching assistant's email (accidentally clicking 'reply all') and addressed him as 'Hey Bro'. He also referred to the library as 'lib'.

    I was dumbfounded.
