Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls
Cactuses and cacti are both acceptable. Look in the dictionary. Same with octopuses and octopi.
People who say "cacti" or "octopi" in a holier-than-thou manner are definitely douchebags.
People who make broad sweeping generalizations about broad groups of people being douchebags are themselves douchebags.
The pilgrimage is not perfected save by copulation with the camel.
While I agree that 'cacti' is the more accepted word, I also find that the notion that English speakers have to follow Latin pluralization rules for certain borrowed nouns is itself idiotic. And probably traces to some class-division concept of old England.
Latin pops up everywhere. The fact that there's little rhyme or reason to it is the excessively idiosyncratic nature of American English. As far as I'm concerned, when you're talking about a species, science should matter a little.
I guess I'm a douche bag.
Jesus Amy you aren't a douchebag.

I HATE "jelly", especially when it's used by grown adults.
Basically all the shortening of words. Particularly "obvi" instead of obvious, "presh" instead of precious, etc.
Also, "nowadays" is douchey.
Oh look it stopped snowing...
