    When people say pottery shards, its sherds people its an E learn to pronounce words correctly. (also its milk not melk).

    When students act like I dont see them text messaging under the table.

    When people have a bad disposition for no reason.

    Shard IS a word. A language isn't always set in stone and will change over time. Besides, it sounds a lot better then sherds anyway. Also my computer thinks sherds is not a word as well. I also hate the word fishes even though its a word too.

    Not to derail the thread, but the Shamwow guy (Vince) is hilarious. Have you seen his "SlapCHop" ad? Pure Gold - "You're gonna love my nuts!" and "fettuccine, linguine, martini, bikini!".

    The shamwow does work. I've never used a "Shamwow" but I was a diver when I was a young lad and we used "Shamees" to dry ourselves off. They were amazing. Of course, I didn't just set it on a piece of carpet with coke spills to see if it sucked up half of it with no pressure, but if it is on TV, right?!

    I think we got Shamwow before, or something like it. They lied, it actually moved the water, it barely picked it up! Anyway

    The sound of a beating heart.
    When people wear HUGE shirts and shorts that reach their ankles to look "gangsters".
    People with more bark than bite.
    When people think all stars go supernova. There's also just regular novas... (not trying to direct this to you, Carn)
    When people think the Sun is a billion degrees on the surface. No.
    Paired up with slackers when doing projects or something, I do most of it.
    When people laugh at the word fart and poop.

    -colorful clothing
    -Capensis calling me out
    -waiting for my plants to arrive
    -waiting for something exciting
    -Bad graphics
    -grade 5 kids that just had a science lesson about chem and think they know more than a grade 11 chemistry student
    - People who talk in slang
    making errands for someone else, and they complain because it wasn't the brand or type they didn't specify.

    Shard is a word, but it does not refer to broken ceramics. Those are sherds. Also your computer probably thinks archaeology is spelled wrong if you include the extra a, however, the standard in both N. America and Europe is to use the extra a after the arch, so your computer isnt always right. I don't even want to get into the dynamic nature of language. This fact however does not change the fact that broken ceramics are known as shErds and saying shards is a misuse of the word.
