Smacking is necessary, if a child runs into the street, you would not wait for them to be ran over by a truck and say "you deserved it" to their lifeless body. You would intervene and discipline them in a tangible way. In essence, you give the child a little bit of physical or emotional pain now to avoid a lot of pain later. amirite?

..why was this changed to "smacking?"

It's almost disgraceful that there is a point in a lack of physical attraction people will tell you you're beautiful out of pity, amirite?

what bothers me is that we put so much emphasis on the need for beauty. why can't she be brave, intelligent, and kind and that's enough? the fact that there even is a debate about her looks means that it's still something that defines a person.

so what if she's not physically beautiful? so what if you're not physically beautiful? what about all of those other great traits you have?

that's why i hate the phrase "everyone is beautiful." fine, everyone is beautiful to someone, i absolutely agree, but making it such a statement for everyone to follow is only encouraging the idea that beauty matters so much.

this isn't a rant towards this post or anyone who commented btw, just a general observation sparked by the post

honestly, yes. i'm spiritual in some regards and would love to have some version of life after this one. i don't want another "life" like i've lived while on earth, but maybe a drained version? i don't know if i wanna use the word "heaven," for some reason i just like to avoid that word.

but i've heard from so many people that they have vivid dreams of people who have passed coming to them and telling them very meaningful things, and my cousin even claimed to feel his brother who has passed touching his face. i think it would be nice to have another life in that sense - helping out those who are still on the earth with whatever they need.

but that also makes me think - what happens when every single person i ever knew on earth is also gone? a hundred years after i die there will be no one left for me to help, so maybe then is when your after-life ends as well.

idk, i think about this stuff a lot so i wanted to contribute

A fresh, natural look on girls is so much more attractive than a girl who is caked in makeup, amirite?

This is this. Better than amirite?

It's pretty sad and kind of scary that "90s Kids" reminisce about the TV shows they watched during their childhood, rather than the things they did during their childhood, amirite?

As a 90'schildTM, I definitely understand why people refer to TV shows & such to define the childhood. I wouldn't go as far as to say "you didn't have a childhood if you didn't watch __," but thinking back to my childhood, I remember waking up early to play Spyro, Crash Bandicoot, watch cartoons, etc. I also think about playing outside and having a life, but these shows & video games entertained me soooso much and therefore made me a happy child, so I do refer to them. Ya know?

It's weird how shampoo can be used as a verb (I shampoo my hair) but conditioner can't, you can't say I conditioner my hair, amirite?
@thatguys Yea I agree with anon. If you were unaware that some nouns can be used as verbs while others can't (such as shampoo...

i assure you as somebody who has taken a shitload of english and linguistic classes, i'm pretty good in that area. this truly was just a random thought that i decided to make a post, even though it's not a quality idea at all, haha

It's weird how shampoo can be used as a verb (I shampoo my hair) but conditioner can't, you can't say I conditioner my hair, amirite?

lol @ everything about this post. i made it 2 years ago, i was in the shower and happened to think it was funny that you say shampoo exactly the same way for both noun and verb form, but conditioner you have to remove the "er." i KNOW that it's just a different form, i just meant the exact word for what it is. i also know that this is quite a dumb post, but hey, we can't always win

If Beethoven heard Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber's music he would probably be shocked, not because the music was bad, but because Beethoven's deaf. amirite?

wobbuffet!

Sometimes out of the blue when you're looking at your sexy self in the mirror while washing your hands or something you'll start doing weird shit like smiling creepily or waggling your eyebrows, and then stop suddenly when you realize that stuff like that is probably why you have no friends, amirite?

only always

Imagine if you could live a different person's life every day for a week. For example, one day you'd live a day in the life of an Olympic gold medalist, the day after in the life of a researcher in Antarctica, after that a day in the life of a child living through poverty in Africa, then a day in the life of a billionaire, etc. It would really put your own life in perspective, amirite?

i think even switching lives with someone who isn't living an extremity would still give you a new perspective

Every time someone asks you what your favourite movie is, you forget every movie you have ever seen in your whole life, amirite?

i mean, my top 5 movies i'll always be able to recite perfectly, but this definitely applies to movies i love in general

If all of the current amirite members remained active users for the next twenty years, there would be a shift in the age demographic, and it would be cool to see how the posts, comments, and site would change to appeal to thirty and forty-year-olds, amirite?
@YouWouldBeThatGuy It's only been two years that I've been a member and I already feel like the posts I made when I first started...

110% agreed. especially since 2 years ago i was pre-college, now im halfway through college, so the way i think has changed drastically. some of my first comments too i'll read and think "dear christ please tell me i didn't actually say that"

If you think about it, just driving to the grocery store, you pass hundreds of people you've never met before, that have their own stories, their own dreams, and their own problems. But, we may never know anything about them. It's miraculous to think that the random stranger at the mall that you accidently make eye contact with could one day be a very important part of your life, or nothing at all, amirite?
@For some reason, this POTD reminds me of the one from 2 days ago.

the only reason i know this is because i replied to that comment, haha
