@nodakai: Sounds like a reference to Douglas Adams, where he describes how to fly.

comment “Must of ” vs “must have”
Using of in place of have (especially in "should've") has likely crossed the threshold in British English already. I don't have it in front of me right now, but I believe the dialogue in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone uses of exclusively. (It's global-searched-and-replaced to -'ve for the American Sorcerer's Stone.)

comment What's a parallel for 'mitigate', for worsening a good situation?
The only piece of this answer that is even vaguely in the spirit of the question is worsen. The "justification" for suggesting exacerbate and aggravate completely misses the point.

comment “In general,…”: do mathematicians use this phrase oppositely from everyone else?
You will find many, many cases where the language of mathematics differs from English (or any natural language). For me, it's reason enough that mathematics needs language that is precise and unambiguous. Natural language evolves organically and is used for a great variety of purposes, from basic communication to art, and serves a great variety of users, with varied backgrounds, skills, and sensibilities.
