The thing I can not fathom out is whilst spurting out every buzz word , term and sentance is what the f**k is all this secret sign language the hands are doing :lol:
Politicians are great using it , blair was the first I think / maybe major ?
Even the 2 guys who own the engineering firm I work for spoke to you with their hands in their pockets 15-20 years ago but now have since discovered this secret sign language and use it on every communication which now takes place :lol: :lol:
Nothing like finishing with a flick :lol:

The other p*ssboiler is where they create new words by combining two existing ones together. E.g. Synergy (synchronised energy),what a clusterf*ck.


Synergy is an actual word stemming from the Greek words, 'sun' meaning together, and 'ergon' meaning working - Synergia 'working together'

The irony of the thread is the 'English' language is a wild concoction of languages we've inherited from everyone else.

However, I will agree that the use of words such as synergy has become cringeworthy.

Great topic reminds me of the mid 1970's when a colleague had one of these aerosols on his desk! Other makes are available.
