How is this even a real word? It makes zero sense. Regardless already means without regard. Adding "ir" in front of it sounds like a double negative to me so how does it actually work because obviously I'm wrong seeing as it's a word in the dictionary. Why isn't irredeemless a word then?

    Any good dictionary will note that it is “nonstandard.”

    Yeah. I was supposed to hang out with Nevada tonight but he cancelled and went to bed early now I have nothing to do.

    I still don't understand how this was ever an acceptable and real word at any point in history.

    Oh no...another one of these threads.

    "I could care less." Really???, there is a margin of care below your current state of care?

    "I know, right?!?" Do you know, or do you NOT know? Don't invite me to join you in your ambiguity.

    Foodstuff and foodstuffs. What's up with that?

    "X" needs cleaned. "X" needs fixed. What happened to the words to be?

    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Why not? Look at all the deviant garbage that's acceptable nowadays.
