SATURDAY NIGHT OPEN THREAD

Our theme tonight is: Things people say that don't seem to actually mean anything.

Consider, for example, the phrase "that being said." We have never understood the point of saying it. Of COURSE whatever you just said has been said. Why do you need to SAY it has been said? That being said, maybe you have some other examples.
