Many redundancies crop up around “personal” or “personally”:
“I personally think that….” There’s a double.
These two are triples:
“I myself personally think that…”
“It’s my own personal opinion that…”
Einstein said, “Everything should be as simple as it can be, but not simpler.” (Aren’t you glad he didn’t make the theory of relativity more complicated?)

HANGED is used for executions or suicide: “The criminal was hanged.” Sometimes you see “hanged to death” along with “strangled to death” and “starved to death.” Those are all redundancies. If you’re hanged, strangled or starved, you are dead.
HUNG is used for decor: “Angela hung the picture of the well hung model on her bedroom wall.”
