    I cannot stand the term "free food" ex. When the average person says "Alright! Free food!
    To me it sounds like they have no respect for their body and will put anything in it that is free. My mom shares this pet peeve; she says it makes people sound as if they are gluttonous cheapskates....hehehe. I hate to label, but I agree.

    P.S. Before anyone lashes out at me and says, "what about poor people?" That's different; I'm talking about your average person. However, I must say my friends' mom was on welfare and she used her check from the state to buy really nutritious organic food for her and her kids!

    littlelily, I know what you mean...

    I think the only saying that bothers me is when people say "Like" as in every other word. I find it irritating.

    um...

    You got lucky. Give the person credit. Saying you got lucky is basically saying that you had no skill or planning involved, but by chance you have reached a positive result.

    romantic simplisticsm bothers me in and off it self, because like belief, it too often substitutes for honest objective analysis. and the problem with that of course is precisely that just about all the suffering and real harm that there is, has it's roots in (usualy collective) thoughtlessness.

    that being said, like anyone, there are a few i too am fond of.
    those in which my own axes to grind find humor generaly.
    which i suspect is the case with most people with their's

    I hate hearing people use the word gay as a derogatory term, though I'm no better with my constant use of the word "retarded." I actually work with three people with mentally retarded family members, and so I've really curved it, I'm proud of myself.

    Free food is good food.
     
  12. The only thing better than free food is free sodomy.

    When was the last time you actually paid for sodomy?
     
  14. Okay, fine, a revision: The only thing better than free food is sodomy.

    I hate the saying
    "Two roads diverged in a wood, and
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference"
    because most ppl misinterpret the poem...
     
  18. I hate it because it's boring, dreadful stuff. Same with Thoreau.

    It is completely impossible to misinterpret a poem.

    "You can't have your cake and eat it too."

    Why the hell not? What good is having the cake if you can't eat it too?

    I think what they mean is "You can't eat your cake and then still have it sitting before you."

    That is unless you throw it back up immediately...

    hmmmm...
