Moratorium on the word “Fact”

I’m convinced there needs to be a moratorium on the word “Fact.” The word has become so misused that I assume people are trying to mislead me when they say it.

Further, there should be a fine imposed on the use of it until sufficient time has passed that it can be used to full efficacy. Just like the 10 cents when you forgot to buckle your seat belt, you’re going to have to drop a quarter if you use the word fact. A whole dollar if you use it with something that isn’t factual.

  1. While you’re at it, could you also please impose a fine for misuse of the word “literally”? People seem to substitute that word for “really” in order to intensify their statements, and it literally drives me crazy.
