A word used subconsciously by most teenagers, to denote that what they are about to say is probably inaccurate, exaggerated, or estimated; it was thought up on the spot, and while it should be considered, it shouldn't be taken entirely at face value. The word becomes embedded in your vocabulary at around 12 and it takes a lot of thinking to really understand why you say it.
"...and then he banged on for, like, half an hour about God and the Bible and stuff..."
"Sam's such a nerd, he wrote like five pages for his essay."
"He's a lot older than he looks, he's like 60 or something."
"...and then he, like, hurled Ben's shoe up into the tree, and it got stuck. Then Ben went mad on him, he must have like broken his nose or something."

A term overused mainly by many teenagers in high school, mainly abused during public speeches because of nervousness felt by the user. However it is sometimes abused when talking to friends..either way...its abused, and people need to learn to say other words other than 'like'
Like i went to the store? and like....i bought some stuff? and like..like...like i drove home after that..then like...like..like like - i forgot.
