A Thread for Random Musings

Recommended Posts

I feel the need to spew random thoughts onto a public board from time to time so I thought I'd start up a thread to do it. Of course everyone else is welcome to spew here also--the only rule is that you cannot reply to someone else's post. Each post should have as little to do with the others as possible.

I've learned to hate a new phrase: "I know you're really busy, but..." I got that three times today. Does it make you any less of a dick to precede your request with that line? No. In fact, it makes you more so. Maybe if you didn't know I was so busy then I wouldn't resent you for dumping more of your work off on me. But you did.

don't reply he says, okay

 

Did you ever think that sometimes, the most 'openminded people' are so set in their ways it's scary in that it borders on zealotry?

------------------

I wonder, if everyone decided not to celebrate Christmass till Spring, what would it do to the country. Part of me smirks at the chaos that might ensue simply because people got tired of the marketing gone amuck.

 

-------------

Life's not fair, got that. Why aren't people? Unlike "life" people have a choice. Too many excuses to be jackasses. If you're going to be one, be one, but don't try to rationalize it.

If you say you've forgiven, but not forgotten, have you really forgiven?

It's the little battles that leave the biggest scars, the small stuff that builds up and breaks you.

If I look like #$$# or seem in a bad mood, please do not walk up and say "Cheer up."

 

It is the WRONG thing to say

First of all, you have no idea what's got me down. Probably something small, but it could be that my dog died or I found out I have cancer. Until you know...kindly keep that comment to yourself.

Secondly, I don't like being ordered on how to think or feel, and however you mean it, that's how I'm going to take it. While I'm normally too polite to snap vulgarly, don't be surprised if I do respond with a " Don't have to, not gonna, Welcome to America you #$#$#$!"

 

Thirdly, do you really think it's just a switch that I can turn on or off? I wish. Now I can FAKE Cheer, but that's not what you asked, is it?

Please.

Amen. Just today I was stuck in the left turn lane behind some twit talking on a cellphone. When we finally got an arrow, I had to honk three times to get him to move- plus the little jerk had the nerve to turn around and give me a dirty look.

Whooop... rulebreak alert.

And yes, the irony of responding to your post with this and thereby breaking the rule as well didn't escape me ;)

I bitch and moan a lot, about a lot of things, especially here. But in spite of the fact that I am hopelessly overworked and stressed out both in the office and at home, I can't think of anyone I know who I would be willing to trade places with. And the world, for all its problems, is an okay place to hang for a while.

If you are maori it is ok to pipe out racially offencive stuff, if you are a single white male argueing with the racism just makes you look like a racist.

 

My freinds mum is a femminist and she and her freinds have "inadvertantly" beat it into his and his brothers heads that men are crapper than women. I once mentioned that and was labeled by my freinds (also femminist) sister in law as a misogynist.

 

I get angry when people live up to the steriotypes, it frustrates me to see people just living up to their stupid bad points and knowing that they will go and purpetrate something that is meant to be a myth. I think it pisses me off that steriotypes are steriotypes because they are true.

 

THe double standards are really getting me down.

Recently I have been looking at my "christian faith" and I have realised that 90% of what I believe has been influenced by stupid culture purpetrated by stupid little people who don't know better. The guy who is meant to be the leader comes up and tells you that "God has put something upon his heart" what he is doing when he says this is: "I have a direct link with God, listen to me or sin against God, I know whats right." I tried raising this point with him one day and he was puzzled, it was then I realised that he could never actually understand it. Church culture is often stupid, and you are told that you must go to church for fellowship. when you go to Church you have to operate with in their culture, and that is so filled with hypocracy its not funny. They talk about getting people to accept God using Free will and then use Emotive BS to trap you into it, one of the guys admitted that he uses the "Get em while they're young technique" of converting 10-12 yearolds with the idea of burning in hell forever. Makes me sick.

 

Back to emotives, I have been going to this "Night Church: Real Ultimate God" thing for the last 3 weeks as one of my freinds has draged me along. This service pisses me off. They say it's a powerful learning experience, but looking at it theres some pretentious pop worship at the beginning of the service and then a guy stands up and talks for ten minutes on some topic. He gives 3-5 verses (Thats not a meal of scripture... thats not even a snack.) and thinks thats enough fact, he will then emote for a further 15 minutes on this thing trieing to convict the listeners in their hearts that he's right. Ofcource the people who don't realise this fall for it and then can't comprehend when you argue with what the "teacher" has said. we then break into "discussion groups" and discuss this "sermon." Usually it is more emotives followed by the same verse. 9 times out of ten the answer is something like "Because God loves us", "with all our hearts", or "no".

 

Man religion pisses the crap out of me.

Bored at work. I have to stay here for 8 hours to get paid, but I've got maybe 30 minutes of work to do.

On the other hand, I've got many, many hours of work I could be doing at home. By the time I get home, I won't have the energy. Blah.

The letter H quite possibly encompasses everything that is wrong with the English Alphabet. Just say it outloud a few times. H. H. It's wrong!!! Every other letter in the alphabet ends on a semi-soft sound, but not H. It's right there being all obtrusive and hard consonant sounding in your face attitude.

 

I've got my eye on that letter, and it'll screw up one day, and when it does BAM! I'll be right there to escort it RIGHT out of the alphabet.
