Why tie your shoes fast?That's what velcro is for...:-)

this may seem a bit of a quibble, but is "fast" really the correct word to use?i realize that some of the newer dictionaries permit its use as an adverb, but it always sounds horribly incorrect to me akin to saying "he talks good".fast morphing into an adverb would hardly be the first vulgarization of english to make its way into grammar guides, but i'm just never going to be able to hear it and not hear "he talks good".shouldn't it be:he runs quicklyorthat was a fast run?making fast into an adverb because so many people use it incorrectly seems the wrong way to go.am i the only one this bothers?
"am i the only one this bothers?"...No morganovich you're not the only one...Then again considering how many teachers in public school have no problem using the word, 'dissing' or 'dissed' I guess I shouldn't be all to suprised by the misuse of words...Apparently diagramming sentences is a lost art to the modern education system it seems...
"How to tie your shoes fast."Could this instructional video may be about tying shoes securely rather than quickly?
Why do you need to tie your shoes fast/quick!
