Abbreviated version of "totally." All words that "totes" modifies should be abbreviated if at all possible; some exceptions apply.

Original usage is "totes obvi" and should never be used by people who actually use "obvi" in conversation.

A shorter more convenient form of the word: totally. This word is most commonly used by teenage girls.

The most obvious advantage of using this word is the time saved. Data collected at a prestigious university found that every syllable spoken takes approximately 0.14 seconds.

The same prestigious university also found that the average valley girl says the word totally around 190 times a day.

If you do the math, the average time saved by using the word totes as opposed to totally would save 26.6 seconds a day! Over the course of a year that adds up to 2.7 hours!!

TOTE
The... trap of technical excellence TOTE
Sometimes the focus within creativity can be fixated upon technical excellence to the detriment of the idea and creativity, causing a creative person to fall into the trap of technical excellence.

A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault. ~John Henry Newman.

Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing. ~Harriet Braiker

Have no fear of (perfection) - you'll never reach it. ~Salvador Dali
