comment “Literally” and “Decimate” misuse
The English language has recently been bent out of shape by this particular usage. It seems that those ridiculous uses you mention (and many, many more) are now to be tolerated. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23729570

comment What is the etymology and literal meaning of 'Cock a snoot/snook'?
Somewhat randomly the other weekend, while on a visit to a farm with my five-year old, it occurred to me that the 'cock' part of 'cock a snoot/snook' might refer to the similarity between four wiggling fingers and a cock's comb. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comb_(anatomy)

comment Proper answer to “excuse me”
I think these things are very much context-dependent. Here in the UK it would be seen as a dry and gently humourous riposte, far removed from a 'chick-flick' or the typical Richard Gere film. hitchensblog.mailonsunday.co.uk/2010/03/… britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=714185
