A few things I've been wondering about lately:
    #1475192 - 04/20/03 02:00 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Cliche's. They are unavoidable, but still they annoy me.
Sports cliche's are especially annoying for some reason.

Right now, the one in vogue that I don't get [and maybe somebody can help me out here] is where some announcer inevitably says during a ballgame that so-and-so does such-and-such "as good as anybody in the league." They always say that as a compliment, but it is really? I mean, anybody can be ANYBODY right? There are LOTS of players that absolutely suck at any given task! Is it a compliment to say that a player is only AS GOOD as them?? That's like saying Michael Jordan is "as good as any player in the league" in scoring. Yeah, he's as good as, and a HELL OF A LOT BETTER, than 99.9999 % of the players who have ever played in the NBA! It's not a much of a compliment at all when you think about it.

I could come up with more, but I'm sure you have some examples that are as good as any I could come up with.

Also, why do we park in a driveway, but we drive in a parkway?

looks like you stumped everyone..

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

Also, I hear people saying "I could care less about that". Shouldn't that be "I COULDN'T care less about that"?

That pisses me off.

It sounds like you got these from some corny Internet spam mail. I've heard the drive in parkway, park in driveway. I'm on to you lamer.

What color does a Smurf turn when you choke him?

Is baby oil made from babies?

If you throw a cat out of a car window, is it kitty litter?

Revelation, that one pisses me off too!! heh!
I'll think of more later after I've had another beer or two.


Also, I hear people saying "I could care less about that". Shouldn't that be "I COULDN'T care less about that"?
