I was just thinking about this on my way home; what are people going to be saying in the far future ? are we gonna hear some that will sound completely ridiculous to present day?

Example: "Do not defragment your harddrive when it's empty" - potential meaning; Do not needlessly complain and unload your makebelieve trouble on others

Defragging your harddrive is basically the equivalent of cleaning up your place.
Your hdd accumulates a lot of infomation that just sits there and eventually slows down your pc, hence why you need to defragment it so it can perform at maximum potential, much in the same way you clean your place so it doesn't get too dirty.

Okay that got a little longer than I wanted it to be, but I hope you get the idea.
Let me hear your creative take on what could be a future figure of speech, I hope you are more creative than me haha.

"we have a security breach in our network" (there's a 3rd person trying to butt in on our chat)

I was watching the show "Criminal Minds," and the kids kept saying "Gosh Mom, don't be such a tyrant." Who compares their Mom to people like Hitler, Stalin, and Kim? I'm hoping the writers had a satiric motive when writing the dialogue for the kids. It had me giving my TV some undeserved sass.

I hope we all would have moved on to cheap SSDs in the future.

Tvtropes has a page on a similar idea: Hold Your Hippogriffs


This jackass just said that something can go "through a ferrocrete bunker like a neutrino through plasma." I get it, man. It says Star Wars on the cover. I know I'm reading about Star Wars. It's like, do they not have butter in space? Or hot knives to cut it with?

"Hit Deborah Cliff with your head to make a hole."

Meaning; don't believe everything you hear.

The English language is already mangled enough as it is. It doesn't need to be helped along.

Well look back at the past ten years or so and you'll see a trend.

"Just google it"

"Just tweeted it"

"I instagrammed it"

"I Youtube'd it"



See what Im saying.
