Irregardless
Why do people think this is a word?
Beacuse essentially it is one:ir·re·gard·less ( P ) Pronunciation Key (r-gärdls)adv. Nonstandard Regardless.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------[Probably blend of irrespective, and regardless.] Usage Note: Irregardless is a word that many mistakenly believe to be correct usage in formal style, when in fact it is used chiefly in nonstandard speech or casual writing. Coined in the United States in the early 20th century, it has met with a blizzard of condemnation for being an improper yoking of irrespective and regardless and for the logical absurdity of combining the negative ir- prefix and -less suffix in a single term. Although one might reasonably argue that it is no different from words with redundant affixes like debone and unravel, it has been considered a blunder for decades and will probably continue to be so. irregardlessadv : regardless; a combination of irrespective and regardless sometimes used humorously

I hate it when people say, "AK, one of my 3 favorite hands." No shit.A favorite hand shouldn't be in the standard top 10 list. 10/Js shouldn't be a favorite hand.Some crap hand like K3 or 10/4 should be considered a favorite hand.Having said all of that, 66 and 10/Js are my two favorite hands. :!:
