Nothing but L L o v e for this incredibly unique piece of humanity. Contrary to popular belief and pedantry, typing in the (more generally) accepted precepts does not, in fact, make you any more fun. Or good. Or smart. Or *insert other positive adjectives here*.
Well, obviously OCD is one of those ‘cool’ illnesses a person can self-diagnose after being distracted by something one time and then feel special. You know, it’s like how it’s only people who aren’t bipolar or schizophrenic who use those words as nifty adjectives.
If she was really OCD, she couldn’t bear to have those spaces between the punctuation and the random letters capitalized but not the “I”s. My dad, who has been diagnosed, would probably keel over and die before he could produce something that looked like this.
Then again, that might be true without the OCD as well.
No, I wasn’t being ironic, I was being drunk. There’s a subtle difference, about the same order of magnitude as the difference between what you mean by slinging around irony as if it was sarcasm, and what irony actually means. Is English your first language? Before you get all into deep conversations about yourself and how it’s not, it was just an excuse to raise the point that it’s not mine. I’m from Brazil, first language Portuguese (for those who were about to start talking to me about “Brazilian”).
Conor, in plain old simple language, I was sticking up for you (and everyone else) and your right to speak and type however you want.
Nah, it wasn’t your grammar, inability to use the pluperfect correctly, or the fact that you seriously think people keep thesauri nearby to write lamebook comments that stood out the most.
I just keep noticing that you say vague things that make little sense. To just stay within this thread: go look at that ‘demon’ comment… (?)
But on the topic of Judaism…You heard about what’s goin’ down in Egypt? Hmm…I think Israel should’ve taken Hamas and negotiations with Palestine a bit more seriously, ’cause whoever comes after Mubarak ain’t gonna be a US/Israel puppet. Have fun with those settlements in the new neighborhood. Wonderful idea. Hmm…
Pep, iI think you’re winning me over to Vincent’s team. Take all my comments from this thread with a big crystal of NaCl, I <4 you really. The mention of the demon concept in particular was what sealed the deal…
By demon i meant that a human cannot be random, its her self conscious that does all that ‘random’ stuff. So if she was possessed by a demon that would control her actions and would be random for her. As Pep said earlier about all the teenage girls being random, same gist more or less
Yes Sandcat, its my first language.
Political commentary in the comments…… right. I think we should build an oven and just have a gas time and cook.
Also who even has a physical thesaurus these days, thats what google is for.
No no, I get it. Seriously, I do. Both of you. (By the way, it was Pep who asked if it was your first language.) If we’re to believe the facebook hype, French is your first language Pep (I don’t believe it, but let’s just run with that for the sake of entertainment), but I was throwing your suppositions back in your face by mentioning the language; in fact English IS my mothertongue, although I was indeed born in Brazil. All kindsa meta-sarcasm going on here. Shit I bet you feel like The Riddler when he first meets Bruce Wayne right now, not that I don’t have better graphic novel analogies to make, but I use this one because it’s one you’ll get (and when I say “get” I mean easily from Google).
Conor there are roughly six things available to me withint 100m2 that I’d rather have dissolving in my rectum right now than salt, although Vince is a bit further away probably. Salt is good the next day though.
No, there isn’t meta-anything going on here, you’re just jumping back and forth. And no, I didn’t use the word irony incorrectly. You ever actually look in a dictionary? There are multiple uses of words, for multiple contexts, so the connotation you’ve developed for ‘irony’ in relation to strict literary use means nada.
Oh whoops, that’s the OED. In case you’re too retarded to figure it out, here ye’ go:
‘A figure of speech in which the intended meaning is the opposite of that expressed by the words used; usually taking the form of sarcasm or ridicule in which laudatory expressions are used to imply condemnation or contempt.’
Yes, that’s right. It says what the word IRONY means, not what your cool friends on the internet bitch and moan about because they don’t like that one song by Alanis Morissette.
I accused you of speaking ironically, because I couldn’t believe you would actually mean what you said in the first two messages you wrote in this thread. You know, I said I hoped you were saying the opposite of what you meant, via IRONY. Remember, my drunk friend?
Bed didn’t quite work out, but that’s the exact thought I had about you (it took me until now to realise that you, too, are Irish). Let’s hear it for free laptops, and bail-outs by the IMF and the English! Also alternating typing with drinking and hitting refresh.
Comment section is reserved for angry comments and a place where people can come to hate the English for 800 years of oppression rape, pillage and tyranny. They also stole our spuds in the famine
I ran out of sleepy time tea, so I figured I would stalk Lamebook and read the comments. But, jeebus, these were atrocious. Bleh.
I just don’t understand why this girl felt the need to show me her tracheal area while also listing a bunch of useless information that is definitely not going to win me a round on Jeopardy.
Maybe if she starting using her mighty tongue and so thoroughly cleared throat to put penises in, we wouldn’t have to suffer her spawn’s wrath 15 or so years from now . . . Oh, the irony. (I use that word how I want, bitches.)
I really think this “6O day chaLLenge !!” that lends the album its name is an impersonation of sorts, and Kia is actually rather smart and acting fully out of sarcastic (or, as rightly put above, ironic) intentions. But that’s me.
@MsBuzz…Took me a bit to figure out what historyprof was talking about. It appears that what is written is 42O (with the letter “O”) not 420 (with the number zero) – it’s subtle though and is one of those WTF moments as in “How the fuck did you notice that is was the letter and not the number? And why would you think she meant anything other that 4/20? WTF”
As for “based”…I have heard of the Based Gods, so it’s probably that. But Urban Dictionary lists several definitions – two of which stand out:
Though I know not for certain, I shall graciously and modestly assume that sandcat alleges my not really being French on account of my voluminous and capacious lexicon in English. Being Irish, he has probably not studied any real foreign languages, just that loogie-ridden Gaelic stuff, and is therefore unaware of the fact that all native romance speakers, especially francophones, find it easier to reach for the polysyllabic and latinesque terminology in English over the more common and simple anglo-saxon words. If one need ask why that is, I shall merely curse that person’s darkness and laugh in his/her face.
Oh, and I think we’re just supposed to presume that sandcat’s mommy and daddy are rich landowners and he’s had a jet-setting life, not that he has actual roots tying him to Brazilian culture.
@ Pep – I feel you (the part about the “reach for the polysyllabic and latinesque terminology in English over the more common and simple anglo-saxon words”, although you make it sound so pedantic when it’s just natural.
@ Conor – them Americans. Gaelic is sexy. Keep it up
Also, I like brazilian (the underwear, not the tongue)
@ccrashh You realise that the only place that writes dates month/day/year is the US…so if historyprof is from anywhere outside America the 4/20 wouldn’t even be a date – thus he would wouldn’t automatically translate that to 20th April.
