In cultures where text is read from right to left, when someone from that culture pictures time on a linear scale, the past is on the right with the future on the left. In languages with masculine and feminine pronouns, a natural speaker of that language is more likely to point out the aspects of that object that are generally associated with the pronoun's gender. The effect that language has on how we perceive the world is astounding. amirite?

In Spanish, the word for "plug" is male (el enchufe) and the word for "socket" is not only female, but it's also a synonym for "female" (la hembra).

If you get my drift.

Don't you hate it when people ask you "Are you Ok?" when there's absolutely nothing wrong with you, all you were doing was looking down or staring out into space and now you're suddenly "Having a sad moment", You keep telling them "I'm fine, I'm fine", yet they insist you're not fine, which actually makes you infuriated. Amirite?

I get this a lot:

Stranger: "Are you okay? You look really sad/tired."
Me: "...That's just my face."

You have at one point wondered if every other human in the world wasn't alive, and that they were activated by your presence somehow; that you were the only person truly experiencing consciousness, Amirite?

Soliloquy of the Solipsist
by Sylvia Plath

I walk alone;
The midnight street
Spins itself from under my feet;
When my eyes shut
These dreaming houses all snuff out;
Through a whim of mine
Over gables the moon's celestial onion
Hangs high.

Make houses shrink
And trees diminish
By going far; my look's leash
Dangles the puppet-people
Who, unaware how they dwindle,
Laugh, kiss, get drunk,
Nor guess that if I choose to blink
They die.

When in good humor,
Give grass its green
Blazon sky blue, and endow the sun
With gold;
Yet, in my wintriest moods, I hold
Absolute power
To boycott any color and forbid any flower
To be.

Know you appear
Vivid at my side,
Denying you sprang out of my head,
Claiming you feel
Love fiery enough to prove flesh real,
Though it's quite clear
All you beauty, all your wit, is a gift, my dear,
From me.

It's weird to think that if you died tomorrow that all of your onlline accounts and affairs would just remain as they were, without your online friends even knowing what happened to you, amirite?
When someone asks "What is the one thing you'd get rid of on Earth?," the best response is "nothing" because removing even that one thing can soil everything up. They say "be careful what you wish for" for a good reason, amirite?

People who save seats in crowded lecture halls.

When baby sitting if the child survives you've achieved your mission. Amirite

I can't tell if you made a mistake and meant "babysitting" or if you actually meant "sitting on babies".

There is no struggle quite like choosing a pronoun to refer to an androgynous person with a gender-neutral name, amirite?

I actually don't understand how someone can be offended if they get mistaken for the wrong gender. I get mistaken for a boy all the time – but I've seen myself in the mirror, I know I look kind of boyish, and I take the opportunity to relish in the awkwardness that ensues when someone make a mistake and I "take offense" call them out on it.

You get a special feeling when you're listening to a song and one of the song lyrics says your name and you're like: "Yeah, this song is about me.", amirite?
@I_Predict_A_Riot :( no song has my name in it

Liar. What about "I Predict a Riot" by Kaiser Chiefs?

Proper capitalisation is the difference between "fingering A minor" and "fingering a minor", amirite?

And the classic, "I was helping my Uncle Jack off a horse," versus "i was helping my uncle jack off a horse."

Calling someone by their initials doesn't sound right unless one of their names starts with a "J", amirite?
It's extremely frustrating when you want to say something in a foreign language but you don't know the words, so you have to try to find another way to say it using words you do know, amirite?

If it's Spanish, I just add an "o" to the end of the English word.

ex. "¡Esto es frustratingo!"

Yeah, I'm fluent.

Sometimes it seems like animated characters resemble the actors/actresses voicing them. amirite?

At first I voted no because of Shrek and Donkey, but then I saw this picture:

You always use the Oxford comma and get slightly angry when other people don't, even though you know it doesn't matter, amirite?

With the Oxford comma:
We invited the strippers, JFK, and Stalin.

Without the Oxford comma:
We invited the strippers, JFK and Stalin.


It's kind of weird that the prince kissed Snow White. He had only met her once and didn't know that she would wake up from the kiss. Is it normal for him to go around the woods kissing corpses? amirite?

Even worse: Snow White was only 7 years old in the original tale.

If everyone read fanfiction, the world would be much more open-minded, amirite?
@ProudMary I fail to see why a talented writer (talented enough to keep a good prose and plot) would waste their time with fan...

Because it's a good way to get practice. Take an established set of characters and focus on plot development and writing style. And if both the writer and readers enjoy it, how is it "a waste of time"?
