This is a question Annoying words and phrases

Marketing bollocks, buzzword bingo, or your mum saying "fudge" when she really wants to swear like a trooper. Let's ride the hockey stick curve of this top hat product, solutioneers.

Thanks to simbosan for the idea

"That's so random!"
This truly annoys me.

One of the best things I ever saw when I was at school occurred when Mr. Barnett, a curmudgeonly yet quite evidently quite intelligent maths teacher overheard a bunch of chavvy, moronic year 8s describing things as 'random'. Cue a group of slack-jawed kids stood around while Mr. Barnett explained the notion of statistical randomness. It was like Einstein trying to explain himself to a handful of ants.

I still take Mr. Barnett's side on this. It's really annoying.
