Antique Roadshow is extremely interesting, amirite?
Crime-fighting shows don't seem to understand that pictures contain only limited information, and thus cannot be infinitely enhanced with a simple button push in order to reveal detailed, crucial information, amirite?
It's weird to think that the world could have been created 5 minutes ago and all your memories are all fictitious and you would never know, amirite?
@Statefarm Motherfucker, this shit just got real.

Try explaining the idea to people. That's when shit REALLY gets real. I told a some of people about this a couple of years ago because I thought it was interesting (albeit not exactly plausible), and I got a lot of strange reactions. Some people were like "Yeah, wow! That makes so much sense", others just nodded and chuckled like they were simply humouring me, but some people freaked the fuck out. Like, they got really angry at me for no apparent reason. It was as if I was telling them their entire lives were just a series of lies, even though I let them know that what I was telling them was nothing more than a hypothetical situation.

You understand and are alright with the fact that you are part of a demographic thereby causing people to make ads that appeal to you without really showing you why their product is good, that's just how marketing works. But you still don't bother watching almost any advertisements, on T.V. You just don't pay attention, maybe grab something to eat and on the Internet you just skip them as quickly as possible or ignore them (if they're on the side of the screen or whatever), am I right?

Sometimes I feel bad and let the entire add run before a YouTube video or something. I just imagine the marketing person sitting in a corner and crying softly because he knows he's just paid a crap load of money just to have people zone out and then click "skip" after the required three seconds, and I want to make him feel as if he made at least a small difference.

There are some people who cuss way too much, and it just doesn't suit them at all, amirite?

Thanks to taking on classes I couldn't handle, joining too many clubs, and just being generally far too lazy of a person to not procrastinate on all of my responsibilities, I was kind of pushed over the edge last year. Luckily for me, getting "pushed over the edge" doesn't mean drugs or anything. I just got into the habbit of saying stuff like "This is due in ten fucking minutes and I'm not even fucking CLOSE to being done and FUCK EVERYTHING I HATE MY FUCKING LIFE. SHIT."

Unfortunately, since I'm so small and unthreatening, everyone laughs at me when they hear it. :(

The Big Bang Theory isn't intelligent humour, people just think it is because of the intelligent main characters and the random bits of useless information that precede each childish joke, amirite?

It's definitely not intelligent humor, but for some reason I like it anyway. I know a lot of the Internet is pretty anti-BBT, though (I'm looking at you, Reddit).

When I play Zelda, I save obsessively. Every minute, I stop and click save. It's become a sort of subconscious habbit; I barely even notice that I do it, because I'm not consciously thinking about it. My fingers just instinctively go through the motions of "kill those keese, now flick that switch, now press start and save, now check the map . . . ".

So, my biggest fear is that, after getting killed, the "Game Over" screen appears and instead of pressing "quit", I press "save". And ruin everything.

You can only imagine my paranoid terror as I stare at the screen and veeeerry carefully lower my finger onto "quit", internally freaking out that something may happen and my finger might slip and accidentally press the wrong button if I'm not careful, and then I'd have to start all over again. And probably cry a lot.

TL;DR Saving is serious business.

Everone says Romeo and Juliet is the most romantic story ever, but it's actually kind of creepy. I mean, Romeo is 18, Juliet is 13 and they're in love. Ew. Plus, Romeo stalks Juliet and talks to himself outside her house. He's actually really creepy, amirite?
@rowanne People who continuously like to point out the 'flaws' in Shakespeare's works obviously aren't really experiencing...

I understand that. I am a fan of Shakespear's work, but Romeo & Juliet has never really appealed to me. I see the beauty in the literature itself, but I simply cannot connect with any of the characters. I can appreciate that it's a great tragedy, but I just don't like it.

Not to mention the entire love affair took place over the course of a week, and all of the characters are extremely melodramatic and stupid. And honestly, Romeo just wants to get it in.

If the teacher weighs over 300 pounds, I think they shouldn't be teaching P.E... Amirite?

I had an overweight PE teacher in middle school. She would tell at us about the poor quality of our push-ups while she watched and ate doughnuts.

Girls: if you owned a time machine, you'd go back to a time when guys were chivalrous..when they held open doors for you, when they stood outside your window quoting Shakespere, when they wanted to be with the girl they liked and not the one they wanted to get into the pants of. You'd go back to the times when romance novels were all around you in you very own life... amirite?

I'd love to go back the Shakespearean era, but only because I'm a sucker for cool dresses. Otherwise, hell no. Your post is nothing more than a romanticized fantasy, I'm afraid. That time period was full of violence, corruption, religious turmoil, extreme racism and sexism, and on top of all that even those awesome dresses would get pretty uncomfortable after a while.

Also, fuck being treated like a dainty flower just because I'm a woman. If I were in a relationship, I'd want to be an equal.

Kid in Maths class: “When are we ever gonna need this in real life?” Yeah, you may not need to know anything other than basic addition when you cash your welfare check, but the rest of us want to learn this, amirite?
@name the smaller questions take longer on a calculator :P i dont have long division questions really, just occasionally...

I meant the longer long division problems. I understand why you would do that for the smaller ones.

But yeah, I usually need my calculator for Log functions (or, at least, the more complicated ones), but then again, how often do I need to use Log functions in real life? Not as often as long division, that's for sure.

@name nope, i just use multiplication actually. i guess an answer then see how close it was, then depending on how far...

That actually sounds more complicated than simply doing the long division in your head, but whatever works! But why would you do all that if you had a calculator? You just said you usually do the more difficult long-division questions on a calculator. (Thus using long division, even if you're not working it out on your own)

@name i can do most simple division in my head, but when i cant there is a calculator around

Ah. But you're still using long division, even if you aren't doing it manually or mentally.
