    When I was in a store's restroom today, a woman who is washing her hands by me says "God's really showing us how much power he has!" I'm like, "HUH?"
    To which she responds, "the wind. he's really showing us how powerful he is."
    Of course, she pronounced wind with 2 syllables, we-und.
    No wonder the rest of the US thinks the south is full of idiots!

    Just wow. How does someone respond to shit like that? She probably made perfect sense in her mind's eye, lol

    Replace "God" with "Nature" in that statement, and it sounds like a stereotypical hippie phrase.

    That's true.... there have been much more ingnort things said... I'm sure of it... and that really doen't compare... that at least comes from some type of believe... and isn't just plain stupidity.

    That's my point... it's beautiful to see people acknowledging something like the beauty of the wind through anything... it being God, nature, imaginary antelopes in their head, anything! At least they are acknowledging it.

    What she said was not stupid, it was closer to beautiful.

    Yeah, maybe a bit :p

    But... I used to be a militaristic athiest when I was in high school, and honestly... as cliche as it sounds...throughout the years I learned tolerance is a very easy thing to practice, which truly doesn't hurt.

    Honestly... the original poster wouldn't have had the same negative reaction if the lady in the bathroom used the word "nature" instead of "God"... yet, they are fairly interrelated, or even the same thing for some people. There is no true "right" and "wrong" in such trivial matters as religion... people need to understand that.

    I agree mate. It she stated 'nature' then it would be slightly easier to digest... but in a store restroom? :D Yarrow Sun might not be into that God shit... which would make that a huge WTF moment... yeah

    I always say the most random of crap to strangers, it's one of the fun parts of life.

    Yesterday I was buying groceries and I started to talk to the girl at the register about how the store should put smiley faces on meat in order to persuade vegetarians to buy it.
    She agreed.

    antithesis Hello

    I don't think what she said is all that stupid either... I don't know why people get worked up over harmless religious statements that don't hurt anyone.

    For something really stupid that someone said: When I worked at a national park giving cave tours, we were an hour into the tour and I had just explained how we were in the deepest part of the cave and some girl asked me if we were underground yet. Now that is stupid.

    That's wonderful... although, I have to say, I think something might be lost in the delivery due to your accent.... you dirty immigrant you...

    Probably, I learned to talk really slow at first though... but then I speed up without noticing it.

    It's amazing how my co-workers understand my Spanish... I tend to talk really fast when I start arguing about the Magic with my boss.
