I have decided I hate the word "hyperbole" and all of its various mutations: hyperbolic, especially. I think that's due to its association to trigonometry, although apparently it also means: extravagant exaggeration. I just want to say, that word annoys me, especially when people use it in a question as a comment to something you have said. Ex.: "That's just hyperbole, right?"
Irritating.

  2. Hyper bowl sounds like a good name for a bowling alley.
