The most annoying and irrelevant phrase that people feel the need to say all the time. It often doesn't make any sense but they say it to make themselves seem smarter than they really are, as well.
Person1: Did you see that fight at school?!
Person2: Oh darn, I missed it as well.
Person1: Ummm. ok... *walks away*
Currently, a popular filler (first observed to be popularized by ABC news c.2000) in spoken media.
Often used at the end of sentences by paid "news readers" to fill airtime, while adding no value whatsoever.
ANY sentence with this ending can be said without it and the meaning remains unchanged.
Correct - "The house and barn were destroyed"
Incorrect - "The house was destroyed, and the barn was destroyed as well ... over to you, Kathy"
