And there we go again, insulting the weird kid, expecting him to snap and go on a mass killing spree. Why? WHY?
And also, way to go stereotyping the weird kid as a guy. I mean, I suppose I’m the closest you’d get to a weird kid in our class, and I’m a girl – at least, I was the last time I checked…
hey wannabe……would you like a snickers? i think it’s totally wrong that they stereotype too. i totally believe that you’re a girl.
and in a situation where the gender of a person is not explicitly mentioned or known then it’s correct to use one’s own gender to refer to said person until it is made known to be otherwise…not that i’m defending them or correcting you i was just jogging your memory just for you
I once wrote an entire paper on the whole he/she/they thing and it gets super complicated because they is technically plural and because people are mean and picky. Apparently, grammar is an opinion and not a fact.
Also, I looked up the dinosaur group and was amused to find that there are many groups about god bringing back the dinosaurs and they all claim different amounts of fan numbers that are needed in order to bring back the dinosaurs. Why join the group that requires 65 million fans when you can join the group that only needs 10 million?
Me and my group of friends (I know, incorrect sentence structure. Spare me the grammar lecture.) befriended a boy we named Chompy for the exact same reason. Looking back, I think if he were to snap, he’d go for us first. <3 Chompy
Juliet a slut??? All Because she had sex got married and died… isn’t that what we do, only for some people it takes longer to die after marriage and for some they just wish they would die right after marriage
I don’t think Juliet was a slut, exactly, just one of those kids who think they’re ‘in love’ – and look where that got her, dead as a doornail. Juliet, I salute you for making all the right choices in life.
OMG! Juliet, you got married and then died. You SLUT! Some people are so weird.
Personally, I’ve always thought Romeo and Juliet was kind of stupid. Not because I care how long it took them to have sex and die, but because they saw each other at a party, and knew nothing about each other, yet were willing to throw everything away, basically because Romeo thought Juliet was hot. I suppose I’m just not a romantic. I’ve never been accused of being one.
I hate to break it to you but ‘become shallow’ isnt quite right… we are animals and just like animals we use traits to determine best mates… in birds the prettiest males attract the females, bucks with the best rack and battle skills get all the does, giraffes with the longest necks get to breed the bitches and the hotest human guys get to fuck all the chics… its been like this for quite sometime
Animal nature to want to have sex with someone you are attracted to. Yes. But to throw your whole life away over it? I’m not so sure. Not to mention, we do have a little higher criteria in mate choosing. I once tried to date an incredibly stupid guy when I was a teenager. I just couldn’t take it. After a month or so, I wanted to push him off a bridge. And I’ve noticed if an ugly old guy has lots of cash, he seems to have little trouble attracting a mate. So, it’s a bit more complex than just who has the shiniest abs or prettiest eyes.
slimjayz – and I thought I was the pessimist here! If humanity hasn’t become shallow, then it’s always been shallow. Because the hottest human girls are almost always the most insecure ones with all the self-issues, eating disorders and all that crap. They either don’t have much of a personality or are scared because their opinions might not always match those of the public – why can’t they see that it doesn’t matter? That people would respect them all the more if they just had one single opinion that was all theirs, that they stood up for?
ALL through school I was corrected on papers for writing “they” and it used to confuse the hell out of me. My teachers would actually write “his/her” and cross out “they”, and I always though – I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S A HIM OR A HER – THAT’S WHY I WROTE “THEY”!!! And I still don’t get it… if I don’t know the gender am I actually supposed to write “him/her” ?!~? I had terrible schooling…
You were probably using “they,” which is plural, when your sentence referred to the person as a singular. For example: “If a person loves their job, they are generally happier.” That is incorrect. “A person” is singular, yet you start to refer to the subject as plural with the use of “their” and “they.” The correct sentence is: “If a person loves his/her job, he/she is generally happier” OR “If people love their jobs, they are generally happier.”
wannabe, you are so far off the beaten track, the best GPS device will never get you home.
That is the most ridiculous generalisation I’ve heard in a long time.
You have no fucking clue, and if you knew me for an example at all, you’d be eating up those words right now.
Shame on you.
I befriended the weird kid and it went fine at first but then he got way too clingy and he wouldn’t respect my personal boundaries and, well… it got weird. I was really uncomfortable and had to end the friendship, but I was afraid that would be the trigger that caused him to snap.
hobbette, not making fun of you, you just reminded me of a similiar experience My friends and I named this weird stalker kid Mr. Bean (we never knew his real name), and yes we were just waiting for him to kill one us. Totally joining that group
I assume you’re referring to the play and not the actual characters (although possibly them too). Anyway, the reason you said you always felt it was kind of stupid was kind of the point. It was intended as a cautionary tale, not a romance.
@wordpervert, I might have to say that I am, for now… If all goes well, I will redeem that.
What I don’t get, though, is how can the fact that I like the Mortal Instruments series make someone ‘lost’ all faith in me?
The animal kingdom is awash with examples of species gettin’ jiggy before kicking the bucket:
“Animal nature to want to have sex with someone you are attracted to. Yes. But to throw your whole life away over it? I’m not so sure. ”
Well get sure: Some bees’ genitalia explodes inside the queen, killing them and making her stronger, in fact her survival depends on how many drones she murders, now THAT’s a slut.
When Black widow spiders were so named, it wasn’t a misnomer. Insects do it at an alarmingly high rate.
The Red-tailed Wambenger, an Australian marsuipuial mouse, bones ’till it can no longer, I’ve seen the killing fields, dead rodents piled on top of each other, with little smiles on their faces.
But I should stop regaling you all with my intimate knowledge of critters that fuck then die, I scare myself sometimes.
Humans fuck then die, slowly, we call it a honeymoon.
