How to stop being an idiot
There is a reason why clichés exist and most of them have to do with humans being an unimaginative specie.
Another reason for them to exist is that we constantly seek comfort and we think that repeating those popular phrases will create the illusion of intelligence.
It is up to you keep being an idiot or start being a person who speaks what creates inside his mind.
The exception that proves the rule
The exception that proves the rule is a Disneylandian jump into twisted logic.
Claiming that something that breaks a pattern merely reveals the existence of a pattern is not only untrue, it’s also crazily illogic.
If something doesn’t follow the rule is exactly the opposite of proving the existence of that rule.
Whatever that is breaking the pattern is actually a proof that there is no such a rule.
Too long. Didn’t read
There are lots of internet cliché like ‘Fail’ or ‘Dafuq’ for example but the most overused by idiots is TLDR.
This one it actually do fail in its own execution.
Even in situations where the term is appropriate because yes, some things are too long, in order for you to figure that out, you have to read it.
Only then you can say whether the presentation lasted longer than the idea.
Too long wish I didn’t read TLWIDR would make much sense.
Before you all smart internet commenting explain it to me, yes, I know you can look at some text and decide not to read it because is long.
But the trollish use of TLDR means that something is not worth reading.
Everything happens for a reason
This one wouldn’t bethat retarded if they take it literally.
But no, they believe they are part of some mystic unseen hand that controls the universe in their own favor.
Yeah sure, you are fat, ugly and bald because God has better plan for you.
This formula insists that happy endings always exist.
You see, they would never find how amazing your blood color is if that guy wouldn’t shoot you in the abdomen.
Or if there is no happy ending then your suffering benefits another people like
Aw don’t be sad that you were fired from your dream job, think about the great opportunity you gave to that woman that is now taking your place.
I agree that not every suffering is pointless or that nothing good can ever come out of a bad situation but the arrogance that comes from the belief that tragic events are always justified as part of a larger plan is just intolerable for me.
Good always win
Do I have to explain this one?
I guess yes because people keep saying this all the time.
There are a lot of good people that have a great life and are winners in life but being a winner itself is not the test of greatness.
Let me give you an example.
In 1969 the Beatles release Abbey Road.
During that year you also had Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin on the peak of their careers.
Do you know what the number 1 song of 1969 was? Sugar Sugar by The Archies.
Good always win?
Maybe that one was the exception that proves the rule.
the world must know the truth!
