Also by cheshire_cat+18For all the grammar Nazis out there, you can critique posts as much as you want (because we all know you need to so that you can feel good about yourselves) just don't do it anonymously. If you're so tough that you can post about it, you can at least have the balls to own up to it, amirite?
Also about News & Current Events+67You can't tilt a sphere, amirite?
Also by cheshire_cat+103It's always great when you find money you didn't know you had, except when it's the money you were supposed to use for rent last month, amirite?
Also by cheshire_cat-18When you think about it comfortable is actually kind of a hard word to spell, amirite?
Also about News & Current Events+65The Epoch Times is an alt-right news source and unreliable, amirite?
Also about News & Current Events+5The WORST news of the decade. Typical leftist communists removed Mr Potatoheads balls. This is going to destroy society. What
are we going to do without without balls?? I
loved his balls so much and miss them so much, amirite?
But if you win by forfeit though it definitely kind of sucks.
Winning by a mile would seem a lot more satisfactory.
And it would be pretty crazy if that happened in a swimming race!
Let's stick with a race as an example: If the other guy finished in 30 seconds, what's more satisfactory, finishing in 15 or in 29.9?
Yes, great job on the tautology post, but all wins aren't equal. Each situation in every event is different, and I don't know why you would say that the circumstances of the win don't matter.
The numbers don't matter. The point is, a lot or a little? You could run/swim/whatever at a torrential pace, setting world records, obliterating the competition and establishing yourself as the best there is, or you could participate in a close race.
Honestly, yeah, despite my wording, both have rewards. And the result of both is the same. But regardless of which you prefer, they're different in so many ways. And there are countless other possible outcomes in every sport that can't just be summed up as "winning is winning."
I agree. It's not fun/exciting if you totally blow the other person away.
There's a huge difference between losing by an inch and losing my a mile though. If you lose by an inch you are probably harder on yourself because you know that you could have won..
Yes, but if you lose by a mile you feel pretty worthless and lousy.
That's true, but I think I would rather lose knowing it was close because it's more satisfactory knowing that you could compete with them. When I play softball losing 3-2 feels better than 8-2 because you know it was a good game.
But at least you know that you clearly lost to someone better than you
Well yeah, I guess if you're discussing whether or not he won.
There's our golden Chad.
While I was reading this, the commercial about Michael Phelps came on and said, "he won by just one hundredth of a second!" Haha

No, he beat that Lochte guy and won gold. He was trolling earlier.
