Life isn't actually short in terms of amount of time alive. It's just that we're expected to figure out in the first 20% how to spend the rest 80%. The only time we actually get to enjoy life purely for the enjoyment of life is during those 5-6 years before starting school. We're rushed through everything so much that the amount of time we spend actually "living" life is incredibly short, amirite?

This reminds me of the John Green quote from Paper Towns:
“Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the average life span was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement, There was no planning for a career. There was no planning. No time for plannning. No time for a future. But then the life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future. And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for the future--you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job so you can get a nice house so you can afford to send your kids to college so they can get a good job so they can get a nice house so they can afford to send their kids to college."

Virginity is more of an accomplishment than a failure. It's not hard to lose it; there's always some promiscuous or drunk person who'll have sex with you. It's so much harder to contain your hormones and emotions and maintain your integrity, especially if you're with someone you really like, amirite?

I don't understand how this post has such a positive score, when it's essentially saying someone who chooses not to have sex is stronger in that regard than someone who chooses to have sex. When is it ever okay to judge people by their personal, sexual lives? Virginity isn't an accomplishment. It's an abstract concept that some people choose to put value in.

It's not easy, explaining vegetarianism to starving African children, amirite?

I have to imagine it would be a lot harder to explain that we're using the overwhelming majority of crops grown in the country to feed livestock. Factory farming is the biggest waste of food in the world. The amount of crops necessary to produce a single eight ounce steak could feed about forty-five people.
World hunger could be eradicated if factory farming were to end. By consuming meat, you're funding the primary reason that those African children are starving.

You still have a lot of unanswered questions about Harry Potter, like who took Voldemort's body after he killed James and Lily, where do Hogwarts teachers sleep and shower or why no staff member seems to be married, amirite?
@StacytheHarlot Yeah, but BEFORE she revealed him to be gay, I think a lot of readers expected them to get together someday...

Not me... I always saw him as sort of solitary and celibate, which is really what he was after the whole Grindelwald heartbreak. Coming to terms with the fact that the love of your life is evil as you're watching him torture your brother, possibly kill your sister, and attempt to start a genocide can really make a man give up on the whole idea of "romantics".

Practicing homosexuality is not a trait a person is born with, you don't see a 10 year old talking with a fake gay lisp. amirite?
If a single living cell was found on a distant planet, scientists would exclaim that we have found life elsewhere in the universe. So why is a single living cell found in the womb of a pregnant woman not considered life, amirite?
@Pug I took a genetics class. The teacher gave us a senecio and asked us if the baby should be aborted. The baby would...

Your teacher could've just as easily shown you Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer. The point is that it DOESN'T MATTER. The fetus has just as great a chance of being a horrible person as being a good person, so that shouldn't even be on anyone's radar screen. It's honestly a stupid discussion to have, and your teacher's presentation was biased, manipulative, and just plain dumb. Abortion shouldn't have anything to do with what the future of the fetus might look like in the decades to come; it's about the here-and-now situation of the mother.

Too bad all burglaries can't be like the Sims where the burglar always wears a striped shirt, can't get in through anywhere but the door, and points and screams at the alarm until the police arrive, amirite?

Yeah, but it would suck if fires were like they are the Sims where if you forgot to buy a smoke detector, you've basically condemned your entire family to either death or misery, because you can't stop screaming at the fire long enough to call the fire department or get your baby out of the kitchen. Pools also suck in the Sims. I have a two year old cousin who can hoist himself up on the side of the pool, but heaven forbid a Sim at the peak of his physical fitness doesn't have a ladder...

sometimes you wish there is a crying room in your school or college, a place where you just go into to cry the shit out of yourself, then get out as nothing ever happened. amirite?

It'd be awkward if you walked in and there was someone else in there crying though. How would that work? Would you awkwardly back out and wait your turn? Would there be a line outside of the 'crying room' full of people frantically gulping and blinking, or would there be people on all sides of the room breaking down into tears? How about stalls? Would there be plenty of tissues and a mirror so we could touch up our makeup?
These are the questions...

Virginity is more of an accomplishment than a failure. It's not hard to lose it; there's always some promiscuous or drunk person who'll have sex with you.

@Rocky Actually, it is being weak in a way. Lust is a really strong sensation and very difficult to resist. So if you DO...

Not doing something that makes you happy in the face of opportunity for the sole reason that you want to be able to say that you resisted it is stupid, not strong. There are plenty of legitimate reasons not to have sex, but it doesn't make you any stronger than those who do.

When you're alive it's almost as if the world is built up around you. When you talk to someone, or when you see people walking about, 99% of the time, you don't ever take into consideration that they have their own lives, and thoughts. It's probably because we've only seen the world through our own eyes. It makes your head hurt that there are 7 billion other worlds around you, amirite?
There's nothing wrong with being a vegetarian, amirite?
@ThisChick I like to help animals. I have saved them before, like nursed them to health. And I want to help in a shelter, but...

One: You're not a carnivore. You're an omnivore.
Two: Yes, you can be an animal lover and still eat meat. It's wonderful that you've saved animals in the past. However, there is hypocrisy in the fact that you love animals, and yet you continue to pay the companies that force mass amounts of animals to live short, miserable lives before savagely murdering them.

The drinking age in the U.S. should be lowered to eighteen. Twenty-one seems outrageously random to me, and I think all legal adults should be allowed to drink; that's the way it is in the vast majority other countries. Not all that controversial, but I can't bring this up with any adults in my life because -obviously- my stance means I'm a drinker.

Excluding sexual perversions, it's generally understood that a person's sexuality should not be considered a character flaw. What goes on in someone's bedroom is his or her business alone. But most people seem to only apply this logic to gay people and they continue to bash promiscuous women. That should really stop, amirite?

If a "promiscuous" woman likes to have sex, there's nothing wrong with her going out and getting laid. Like really who cares? As long as she's safe and not getting in the way of anyone's relationship, it's really fine.
Why are people so invested in each others' sex lives? Whether they're fucking someone of their own gender or just fucking a lot, it's none of your business. If your biggest issue is with someone you don't know doing something that hurts no one, you need to go out and get yourself a life.

You shouldn't die a virgin because then you might have to have sex with a terrorist in heaven, amirite?
@Expelliarmus Does Voldemort count? That sexy thing; and he's a virgin too

How do you know? Tom Riddle was pretty handsome in his day... I bet he knew how to get down. hello smilie
