One of my pet peeves over the years -- one I share with some of my colleagues at Cricinfo -- has been how people keep misuing the term "literally." "I literally shat in my pants," someone will say, an assertion not backed up by the state of the trousers in question. "I literally ate my words," someone else will state. And people literally play out of their skins, or eat ice-creams that are literally out of this world.

So naturally, I am delighted to find a blog that documents just this kind of misuse. Do check out "Literally, A Web Log."
