In a Word: Irregardless

You may choose to do some things without regard for the consequences if you absolutely must, so long as your actions bring no harm to others. After all, it's your life. But you may never, ever do anything irregardless of the circumstances. That is not allowed. Not now, not ever.

People have died from saying irregardless. Seriously. And it's no quick and painless passing away, either. It's a horrid, vomiting, blood-gushing kind of rotting death that goes on for days and days. So please don't ever say that word again, regardless of how often you might hear other people saying it. Be a leader. You might just save someone's life — most notably your own if I happen to be nearby when you say it.
