    What the shit, just found out "anyways" isn't a word... What the hell do I replace it with now when I wanna start off a separate conversion/paragraph?

    Besides? <- doesn't have the same "anyways" feeling...

    However is however, not the same type of usage.

    Oh wait, I guess... somewhat like it? Still not there yet.

    By the way is good, very tempted to use BTW instead.

    I always felt "anyways" had a sarcastic tone to it, no longer acknowledging the previous conversion, likely due to disagreement/not wanting to argue further.

    What's wrong with "anyway". "Anyways" is just a conserved Middle English genitive form of "anyway", so why not use the correct version?
