  1. Something that has always annoyed me is common phrases we use to either be inspirational, or convey a point that when you really think about them... Have no real meaning. I mentioned it before in a blog about phrases that I find stupid because they don't actually mean anything and when you apply them to a lot of situations they are not really helpful. The example I originally used being "dress for the job you want, not the job you have" because if you do that, you usually get fired for not following uniform protocol, that and the job you want may not be something that you can dress for at your current job. Most people I imagine would rather not have a job at all and just get paid to sit at home, and I'm pretty sure you can't show up to work in your PJs. But there's tons of other stupid phrases like this that annoy me as well: "It's not about how others see you, it's about how you see yourself." - I'm pretty sure if I see myself as a doctor that it does not allow me to perform medicine. I am also pretty sure even if i was a doctor people need to recognize me as a doctor for me to make any headway. Hell at any job where you are seeking a promotion you could see yourself as a the best person there, but that doesn't mean crap if other people don't see it. This saying only applies when the situation is something like someone thinks you're a douchebag and you know it isn't true. However from my experience usually the worst people think higher of themselves than they deserve. Pretty sure Hitler thought he was pretty great. "It could be worse." - Yeah, I know that jackass. I know there is always the possibility that a rabid monkey could run into the room at this exact moment and throw feces at me, and rip my fingers off, but that doesn't make the situation I find myself in currently to be any better, nor does it bring anyone any comfort, ever. I don't remember the last time I was told this and said "Gee! Now I feel so much better about the current situation!" It's like the rudest thing to say to someone who is having a terrible day. "You know how it goes..." - This is almost always used for explaining something to someone that you don't have the energy to explain but a majority of the time is such a complex story that there is no way that they know what happens without you explaining it to them. So no, I do not know how it goes. "I'll pray for you." - I get that this is meant to be nice, but generally it doesn't help the situation anymore than saying "that sucks". I just had my car break down and it costs $800 to fix it and I am broke, but the best thing you could say is "I'll pray for you". Is God going to throw $800 from the sky? How about you donate to helping me fix the car or be honest and tell me you don't give a crap enough about my problems to do anything to actually help. "Honesty is the best policy" - No it isn't. 9/10 people would rather you lie to them than tell them the truth. How often have you filled out a job application and see the desired pay slot and put some crap like "negotiable" or some lowball number? When have you ever put you'd like to make $1,000 an hour or whatever the boss is making? Because that's how you really feel. Or how often have you put that you left your last job because you want more cash in your pocket and was hoping this job would offer a little more? Hell when's the last time you just wrote "I honestly don't want a job at all, but they won't pay me to sit at home and play video games yet, so here I am." This one is especially not true to those of you who have friends who ask for your opinions on things. Trust me, sometimes people do not admire your honesty, in fact rarely do they do so. Most of the time they are pissed off because they are being told what they don't want to hear. The saying should be "be honest when it doesn't make people upset, but the rest of the time, lie when it's convenient." "YOLO" - I think a lot of us hate this one. Mostly because it's used as an excuse to do something incredibly stupid. "You only live once, so might as well do something stupid to make sure that life is as short as possible." What about you guys? What are some phrases you hate/think need changing/should stop being used?
  2. This is a topic I was discussing with some friends the other day, comparing how much we all weighed when we were born. One was 5 pounds 8 ounces, while another was 10 pounds 3 ounces. I was 7 pounds 9 ounces. But what about you, how much did you weigh when you were born?
  3. Hi I have been learning to belly dance and really like it? How about y'all? What do you do?
  4. So who would you say, you feel more passion to, a Special SomePony or a friend?
  5. In context of Eye Vision, are you more far-sided or near-sided?
