If Colin’s friend is already dead, how does he know that he wants him to talk to him when they pull the plug? I think Colin is blowing smoke up Krystalynn’s ass because he’s mad she made him look like a puss.
Krystalynn is a rotten bitch. She gets to dictate what half the population gets to cry about? GO TO HELL YOU STEREOTYPING WHORE! Go find yourself a trailer park hound who smashed beer cans on his head and uses his balls for sandpaper and make him sammiches.
UGH! Do you know how many women I know that deal with these “man-rule” fuckers because they think that’s all there is out there? I hate men like this and I hate the idea that they are some how better than men with brains and individual identities that aren’t wrapped up in dick’n'balls.
3, 4, 5, and whoever else, time for me to rant. I swear to God some of you are fucking retarded. People call “fake fake fake” on every fucking post and it gets on my nerves. Lighten the fuck up! The comments on this site used to be funny but now it’s just a bunch of pussies bitching (like I’m doing now). And for the record, have none of you ever spoken in present tense when telling a story? Colin isn’t literally saying that some dude is dead, yet still magically asking him to pull the plug. He’s telling the story like when it happened. Ok I’m done. Please put more effort into making your comments worth reading.
Chaz – wait…do you mean she’d kick your ass if you were a trailer park hound who smashed beer cans on his head and used his balls for sandpaper and told you to go make you a sammich? Or if you acted like a guy with brains and with an individual identity and you aren’t wrapped up in dick’n’balls?
Nope. I have never even tried it with her…..plus I know I would be sleeping on the couch. She doesn’t put up with the whole “man card” thing. Her brothers try pulling that shit and it pisses her off and she lets them know.
At a memorial service on Vet’s Day back in the 80′s a reporter talked to my little sister. Apparently she gave him the impression that dad died in Vietnam and he ran a piece about how strong she was being raised without a father. I don’t see how he was confused considering she was 6 and it was 1987.
@Ms. Terri, Penny Lane, and others who don’t like Krystalynn:
It’s pretty much an unspoken rule in my home that if I don’t find something worthy of crying over, my husband certainly shouldn’t. And tv is really one of the last things I would be sensitive to. For God’s sake there are REAL problems in the world and this guy cries “like a baby” at a nice moment in a tv show. I bet he wouldn’t cry at the same moment in real life. But really, the point is that he says he cried like a baby – a frickin’ baby? Really?
That said, it’s not Krystalynn’s place to instruct when it’s appropriate to cry.
“It’s pretty much an unspoken rule in my home that if I don’t find something worthy of crying over, my husband certainly shouldn’t.”
You have got to be kidding me.
“And tv is really one of the last things I would be sensitive to. For God’s sake there are REAL problems in the world and this guy cries “like a baby” at a nice moment in a tv show.”
It actually makes sense to cry at a TV show more so than a movie or real life and I will tell you why.
TV shows become a weekly part of a persons life. They see the same characters go through story lines and plot twists for years. So when Dr. Green died and cried like a baby for 20 minutes or when Billy died on Ally McBeal I didn’t feel stupid, I felt SAD that they died. It’s socially ok to cry at a book or a movie, things you spend a minor few hours on. But a TV show that you spend YEARS with, it becomes stupid.
And, if we all cried at every sick twisted fucked up injustice we see on the news our society would crumble upon itself. People wouldn’t be able to go to work, feed their kids, shower themselves. We HAVE to numb ourselves to real life…because real life is sick shit.
“That said, it’s not Krystalynn’s place to instruct when it’s appropriate to cry.”
For Colin to admit to crying over an episode of Glee is bad enough. Even worse, though, is the fact that it moved him to tears, but he neither knows “that lady’s” name (it’s Sue) nor that the woman she was reading to wasn’t her mother. It was her sister.
If you’re going to display your lameness to the world, don’t half-ass it.
Annnd I concur with the sentiment from before that a lot of the comments on these posts are just bitchy and juvenile. Not worse than youtube… yet. Perhaps worse relative to how long this site has been around.
Krystalynn’s list of reasons why men should cry rocks! Colin definitely made it sound like he was just crying over Glee, so how should she know his friend died?! At least she acknowledged it at the end.
Gina did kind of make it sound a bit like an obituary. Better than the other way around.
Colin…what a puss. just pissed off krystalynn called him out on it, so he tried to make her feel bad by just saying some fucked up story that makes no sense hahhaa. plus it’s pretty amazing this his good friend died earlier that day (supposedly) and he’s just on facebook jokin’ around about crying at a TV SHOW. dumbass
You’re an idiot and what is wrong with America. Books are poignant, timeless, and teach people how to write, speak and expand their vocabulary. Identifying with a character on a television show thrown together in sometimes weeks is stupid. Period. Did you also cry when LC and Brody broke up? Go listen to “Fever Dog” and get a clue.
Shana, This thread is for all 3 posts pictured above, so Paul IS posting on the correct one. He is also correct about the SFC, either that girl’s dad lied to her, or she meant to put Chief Petty Officer.
actually…. noam is right greg… u take out the other members of the sentence to see if it makes sense so..
“asked karlee mandy and i to pull the plug” becomes “asked I to pull the plug”
“asked karlee mandy and me to pull the plug” becomes “asked me to pull the plug”
u do use “and I” when i would be the subject of the sentence… for example “karlee and i want to go to the store” becomes “i want to go to the store”
but “karlee and me want to go to the store” becomes “me want to go to the store”
i never really kno offhand so i always use that trick
I’m not saying this is what happened, but people do have living wills. Or maybe the “friend” that Colin is going to pull the plug for has been deteriorating over many months and this request was made when they were still coherant enough to make requests.
There may be holes, but that doesn’t mean it’s fake. They may all consider him “dead” now, with the body being forced to breathe with machines.
I don’t know the facts, obviously, but just because the face value of the statements doesn’t make 100% sense doesn’t mean the situation itself doesn’t make sense.
Since when is nationalism a problem? Why should I not be proud to be an American? Nationalism is not the word you are looking for, it is jingoism. Stop wasting so much time watching TV and learn something. Oh, and arguing doesn’t always involve formulaic point/counterpoint discussions with emoticons. See, I can pick one thing from what you say and use it to destroy your entire argument.
Also, arguing for the sake of arguing is called debate, and its as old as time.
So, in conclusion, you are an idiot who uses TV as an escape from your pathetic existence. Put down the remote and get on a treadmill, or will you cry when you lose your cellulite too?
I second what Pat said. you’re a dick. “Oh, and…”, why don’t you fuck off. Stop talking about “pathetic existence” when you’re posting on lamebook. And nationalism can be a huge problem, especially when dumb people get hold of it.
Yeah, and when nationalism becomes a problem it is called jingoism. When will you understand that words have very specific meanings and, like nationalism, when wielded by ignorant fools such as yourself can be very destructive.
Pat, you aren’t worthy of my time. You are making a self-defeating, thus fallacious, argument. “Probably because you are”? OOOHHHHHH, MY HEART!!!!!!
Zoned, you have missed the bus and are left behind. My entire point was that identifying with television is stupid, so I would not be turning Grey’s Anatomy back on (learn to use an apostrophe, its called a possessive noun, dipshit) unless it was to MAKE me want to kill myself.
All of you need to stop projecting all of YOUR problems on other people. It isn’t very becoming.
I don’t think it’s stupid at all to let a TV show or other medium (including books, film, and other art) touch you emotionally. Some of the best movies in my opinion are ones that make me feel something, sadness and elation alike. I mean, that’s kind of the point. Filmmakers, writers and the like want their audience to have an emotional reaction to their product, if that is in fact their goal. If you really don’t get that or think that’s “what’s wrong with America”, you’re missing the point and missing out. Yes, there are things more important than a TV show, but if you’re making that comparison, you’re actually the one ironically putting something like homelessness and Glee in the same category. Please don’t let the world see that you’re even more of a douche when you can’t differentiate between entertainment and real world issues.
Really, Ben? First of all, it’s weird that you have that stance, yet know who Brody and LC are, not to mention the fact that you said “LC”. Secondly, next time you try to come down on people for their feelings about characters on a TV show, try to hide the link to your blog that chronicles you jerking off to your obsession with your favorite sports teams.
Actually, one of the meanings of ‘nationalism’ is ‘excessive patriotism; chauvinism’.
‘Jingoism’ can be defined as ‘bellicose chauvinism’. ‘Bellicose’ being ‘belligerant’.
So, really, ‘nationalism’ and ‘jingoism’ CAN BE more or less the same thing.
Furthermore, note that I said ‘one of’. Words have various and rather unfixed meanings. They change over time, and also with how they are used. Language is an ever-evolving medium, and is continually used in different ways depending on the society that is using it and the demands of the culture. I’d suggest looking in to the history of how the first truly descriptive dictionary of English was created – The Oxford English Dictionary – it’s a great example of how languages can be living, changing things. They got people to write words down with an example of where they had seen them and how they had seen/heard them used on citation slips. Words and meanings are added to the dictionary every year (have a look at an etymological dictionary if you like).
Finally, while it is not necessarily in a dictionary definition, it is also possible that the word ‘nationalism’ is being used as an ‘-ism’. Much like the word ‘racism’.
In making myself look like a complete know-it-all twat, hopefully I have demonstrated how much of a twat you look. Don’t make assertions without evidence to back them up. And learn to check a dictionary before you make an argument based on the meaning of a word.
I’ll ignore the previous comment as it was clearly written by an idiot. The guy who called his Hamster Beetlejuice was just asking for it, the first lass is just retarded for writing her status in that way and the last comment just shows how sexist women can also be towards men.
Not checking the date on the first one, I think the only thing lame about it is that it’s on this site. I mean, yeah, you normally put the years of the person’s life down when writing of their passing (and not the length of their military service), but it’s still rather ambiguous.
