adverbs

What is it with people today not knowing how to use adverbs??

For example (as heard on Smash Lab - a new show on Discovery): "That test ran perfect"

No, dear. The "test ran perfectly." You're describing ran, not test.

It's driving me CRAZY. I think it all started when people started using "good" instead of "well" and now it's snowballed out of control and I may have to place a call to the grammar nazi very shortly. (See, use of adverb, not adjective)
