That's not what I meant. I can see how my sentence was misconstrued though. What I was getting at was "sticks and stones can break my bones but names will never hurt me".If the words don't hurt, why do you want to shoot him in the foot?
I gotcha. Fair enough!That's not what I meant. I can see how my sentence was misconstrued though. What I was getting at was "sticks and stones can break my bones but names will never hurt me".
People get "hurt" all the time, yet it doesn't require a trip to the ER, or a band-aid even.
I have no desire to shoot anyone in the foot.
This is very true.Words can and do hurt when directly aimed at someone.
I've been scarred by words. Who hasn't?
That's from Paul Giammatti as Limbo, the human salesman in Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes.Genius!
As for rule #1: For every 10 people that think you are being a dick, there are 10 others that agree with you wholeheartedly. Ergo rule #1 self negates.This is very true.
Most of the time, what is denigrated as being "PC" just boils down to trying not to be a dick. (Rule 1: Try not to be a dick.)
As for all the wailing about free speech, freedom of speech is the right to say what you want without being imprisoned for your opinions. Nothing more, nothing less. If you are transgressing rule 1, expect to be shouted down. If you are being shouted down, you prolly transgressed rule 1. If you haven't been thrown in jail despite transgressing rule...you are enjoying freedom of speech. Freedom of speech does not mean that anybody's opinion (not even mine!) has to be listened to or even tolerated.
Pfffttt.... old people. Who cares what they think?Good idea! Then maybe I can afford some geezer gear. Oh wait, was that offensive or no?
This is just lame and demeaning. A lot of this discussion reinforces how homogeneous the demographic of active users on this forum seems....with chicky-baby stating that the drummers are usually the person in the band who gets paid the least, you don't really see the drummer; just a bunch of misconceptions regarding drummers and it stated as matter of fact by someone who has never played a musical instrument outside of a car stereo
