Actually we need to eat meat for a few reasons, but anything and everything is better in moderation.

Yeah, like murder!

 

Sorry to be a buzzkill, but the statement "everything in moderation" irks me :P

I was only talking about food :P

It's perhaps one of the few points that I can fully agree with you. I've never liked that phrase, and there's always the obvious exceptions like rape/murder/slavery/terrorism.

When people say everything in moderation, they don't literally mean everything.

Then why say "everything" if you don't mean "everything"?

 

EDIT: I know I'm nitpicking. I just dislike it when people say things they don't mean.

I actually see that as a good thing. Even if this whole Kony campaign is questionable, you've suddenly got a large volume of people who have been inspired to educate themselves a little bit about the country and (probably) Kony as well.

I've always taken the phrase 'everything in moderation' actually mean 'no excesses'. Essentially, realize that you can have too much of just about anything, and that you should have some balance in your life.

 

People really think that phrase is meant literally? A phrase is "A small group of words standing together as a conceptual unit, typically forming a component of a clause.". It's short hand for a concept. Rather than have to explain the whole concept every time in full detail, we just say "everything in moderation".

I think it would be clearer if it was stated rather than implied, unless it was clearly a figure of speech. It's completely plausible to be a literal principle, which is why I have a problem with the phrase.

Yes, because people aren't telling you you shouldn't eat too much cake, they're telling you to go out and rape a few women, as long as you don't rape too many women.

 

Since when do we have to say everything literally? What happened to figuratively speaking? Are we supposed to change that sentence to "Everything is better in moderation, except for things like rape, murder and slavery, which are always bad."

Yeah really. I've never seen anyone go at that phrase like that. I'm pretty sure everyone knows and would get what that phrase means...

Three months banishment to 9gag is something i would never wish upon anybody, not even my worst enemy.

Spiders.

 

 

More specifically Spiders who makes webs on the side mirror of a car door, hide in the back of the mirror and even when you shove a hose into it and wipe it all clean, he comes back and spins a web on your mirror all over again just to troll you.

 

 

Going to hit him with a power hose next time I wash the car...

You my good sir, should never get a motor cycle. Apparently spiders, along with other insects like wasps, just love motor cycles. Read the first entry of this article for a good laugh.

After reading halfway in the spider bit, it was enough for me to not want to ride a motorcycle. Once it got into the wasps, there is no way I am sleeping tonight. Thank you for another tacking another sleepless night as a result of the internet with that link, Randox. :sad:

Humph. I hold that as one of their best articles ever (right after my favorite, which also starts with a spider). I laughed pretty much the whole way through that one when I re-read it tonight (been a while). I also hold you slightly responsible for seeing an entry named spiders and not turning back if they bother you :razz:

 

You should not read my favorite article (though I feel like you already have), or that one about insects that I can't remember the name of.

 

In recompense, I offer you a link to this, about zombie survival tactics that will get you killed. No spiders, but there is a great picture of an angry squirrel with the best caption ever (in context). This article shall be my bedtime story tonight.

 

 

And I hate how long clothes take to dry.

I never said I disliked the article (in fact, I can agree with you on how good it was). It was the bit with the wasps what disturbed me the most since I was stung by them often when I was a little child, which sort of justifies how I cringed hard at the imagery of going down the interstate and fighting off a horde of those abominations. Have you also read this article by chance? It's one of my top five favorites, even though I cannot get certain zombie fanatics I know to agree their logic about zombies is faulty. As for the article you linked, I've seen it before.

 

Clothing, oh boy. I find it worse how it's always my favorite pieces that get ruined within in the first two washes done on them no matter what. It makes it more concerning how I have ordered a $25 shirt (including ship costs) being shipped to me, so it would be leave me miffed if it gets ruined within the wash.

Bugs/insects annoy me. And in some cases, scare me. Makes me glad I don't live in Australia or Africa honestly... even though I have no idea where these bugs are located. (Australia is my best bet... everything tries to kill you there.)

It looks to be Brown Recluse considering the color of the spider displayed. and how damaging its bites are. It ranks next to Black Widow on one of the spiders I never want to encounter.

What I've been doing lately is making sure to hang dry all of my shirts that I really like and don't want ruined, especially long-sleeved. Makes them not shrink and last much longericon_thumbsu.gif
