Apparently everything is “incredible.

(Not awesome, as I had begun to believe.)

What is this newsworthy incredible stuff? I mean, are all their breaking stories “incredible”?

Should we even believe them?

News stories, football games, presentations? Even our gossip? We have not yet really done away with “like”, or “I mean”, or “y’know”, or “absolutely”,or “totally.” “Awesome” will stick around until the masses find another totally primo word meaning “HUGE”.

But I am incredulous at the amount of “incredible” data being transmitted as truth these days!

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
