Use "I" when you're the subject of the sentence. Use "me" if you're the object.
Same for "we" and "us", "he" and "him" ("she" and "her"), "they" and "them"

"Myself" is not the same as "me". e.g.: "If you're interested, send email to Godzilla or myself" is wrong. see this or this.

If you don't know what a word means, don't use it. You just sound like an idiot when you say something like "big minority"

"lay" and "lie" are not the same word. They are not interchangeable. One takes an object, the other doesn't.

If someone asks you an "or" question, (e.g.: "Do you have a storefront for showing items, or is it for post purchase pickup only?") "yes" or "no" are not answers. That's noise. An answer would be something that provided more information to the listener (reader) without him needing to read your mind. If you're smart enough to use a computer and sell shit on the int4Rt00bs, you're smart enough to do cursory proofreading of your own writing.

If you don't know where you're going, get the fuck out of the way. Figure it out on the side of the road.

Hang up and drive. I actually saw a girl on a scooter trying to dial her cell phone, weaving all over the road, blocking traffic, etc. When I shouted at her to don't do that shit 'cuz it'll get her killed, and I should know, I ride a motorcycle, she looked at me like I'd reprimanded her for wearing white after labor day. No, that's not fair. That would imply that she had any clue at all what I was talking about.

Styrofoam peanuts suck. They go on the "worst of...." list.
