I think colds should be taken more seriously.
Yeah, it's just a snotty nose and a headache, but you know what? This virus is trying to KILL me. My body is currently saving my life!
However, if someone asked why I missed college, and I tell them that I have a cold, they'll think I'm a pansy.
But you know what, I'm DYING here! Dying! And no one cares but my immune system...
Why do people act like these stupid phrases are 'normal' things to say?
"Looks like rain to me": Example of a stupid phrase. It actually looks like clouds.
"It's trying to rain": Example of a stupid phrase. It is either raining or it isn't.
"The sun's gone in": Example of a stupid phrase. It hasn't 'gone' anywhere.
And they're just about the weather... There are loads of stupid phrases about, but we all just act like they're completely normal and sane things to say.
How can a phone number be OUT OF ORDER?!
Argh! I need to get a replacement birth certificate! Argh!
When people's tongues get stuck to something cold...
... why do they pull it off really quickly, thus hurting themselves, instead of just waiting for it to melt?
Why is the game where if a contestant gets a question wrong, or doesn't score a point or whatever each time, called 'Sudden Death'?
It conjures up images of someone just being smited by Zeus... a tad over-dramatic, don't you think?
Got a cold? That'll be £20 please!
Isn't it funny that we have to pay for basic human rights, like health?
I mean, sure the NHS is free over here (most of the time), but I know in other countries it isn't. And we pay for things like painkillers over the counter and stuff. Surely if our health is a human right, we shouldn't need to feel like we can't afford it...
Also, WHY DO I PAY TAX ON MY TAMPONS?!
If the Moon was made of cheese, would we be so interested in sending stuff up there to 'probe' it? And, would we eat it?
Sorry for the crap post, I just thought I'd get myself into the habit of posting again.
Did drivers of public transport get a pay rise after the terrorist attacks?
I don't think they deserve one, bastards. Their job is just as dangerous as it was before.
Why don't we eat sheep?
Seriously. Think about it. We eat lamb and we eat mutton (when the sheep dies naturally), but we don't kill sheep to eat them. Why?!
We eat most other animals, even if they give us other products (like cows give milk/leather, chickens give eggs etc), but we don't eat sheep!
"We're back, just like we said we'd be back..."
Pah. I hate it when people refer to themselves as 'we', it's so pretentious. Anyway, exams are over, I get the results in March, so just now I have coursework and stuff... Which isn't so bad.
So yay anyway.
