I hate it when people use big words just to make themselves sound perspicacious

In answer to the question whether I get much spam, no, fortunately, not much, although it is about equal to the amount of legitimate comments that I get, so not sure if that is a good thing or not.

 

I have been seeing this a lot, lately, and I don’t understand it. Can anyone enlighten me as to the origin and/or meaning of the expression  “sticks my leg out really far”. Even Google was no help. Every reference to it that I see just seems really pointless. And dumb. But, then, 70% or more of the stuff on even a lot of the sites that I follow seems pointless and dumb.

 

Pokémon Go has been out for, what, not even 2 months, now? And usage is already significantly declining. So much for being the next big thing.

UGH! Who thinks these combinations up? I have absolutely zero desire to try most of these items. Why not just grind up entire meals and eat everything at once?

These kinds of popups are one of my pet peeves, so I applaud this move. At least let me read the article I clicked on the link to before you start harassing me about your stupid newsletter. After all, I found the story without it.

What makes some people so rude? And what difference does it make who serves your food? These people don’t seem to realize that, by merely eating at this restaurant, they are supporting the management’s decision to hire this woman.

Lying down in front of a car for any reason is a pretty stupid thing to do.

This guy should lie down in front of a car. How nice of this judge to allow a rapist to look forward to a life without the burden of being a registered sex offender. Yeah, he has some conditions to adhere to, but they aren’t very strict.

So many people are just jerks. How can anyone really believe in things like “Lucky pennies”? Just keep your garbage in your pockets.

This sort of creeped me out when I first saw it. Great craftsmanship, though.

I say this is just as much the fault of the viewers. If they refused to watch, and/or protested the airing of “reality” shows, you can be sure they would have stopped making them.cool-Mtv-story-ignorance-arrogance

A young family moved into a house next door to a vacant lot. One day a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot. The young family’s 6 year old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and started talking with the workers. She hung around and eventually the construction crew – (gems in the rough) – more or less adopted her as a kind of project mascot. They chatted with her, let her sit with them while they had coffee breaks and lunch hours,and gave her little jobs to do here and there to make her feel important. At the end of the first week they even presented her with a pay envelope containing a dollar bill. The little girl took this home to show her mother who said all the appropriate words of admiration and suggested that they take the dollar to the bank the next day to start a savings account. When they got to the bank the teller was equally impressed with the story and asked the little girl how she had come by her very own pay check at such a young age. The little girl proudly replied, “I’ve been working with a construction crew building a house all week”. “My goodness gracious”, said the teller, “and will you be working on the house again this week too”? “I will if those assholes at the lumber yard ever bring us the 2 x 6’s and the damn bricks”, replied the little girl.

 

Each evening bird lover Tom stood in his backyard, hooting like an owl – and one night, an owl finally called back to him. For a year, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. He even kept a log of the “conversation”…
Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife had a chat with her next door neighbor. “My husband spends his nights … calling out to owls,” she said. “That’s odd,” the neighbor replied. “So does my husband!”.

 

“>Two guys are talking about fishing.  One says to the other “I am NEVER going to take my kids fishing with me, ever again!”  “That bad, huh?”  “They did everything wrong! EVERYTHING! They talked too much, they made the boat rock constantly, they tried to stand up in the boat, they baited the hook wrong, used the wrong lures, and worst of all, they caught more fish than me!”.
