Why are we so concerned with exploring the solar system when we haven't even explored the entirety our own planet yet? amirite?

Because Americans have a really short attention span.

I'M SPARTICUS!

Based on footage of robberies seen in news stories, you'd think security cameras could be slightly better quality in this day and age. I mean, you can barely see anything, amirite?

It takes up a ton of memory space to record decent quality video, so to prevent having to buy some massive memory drive, they use low-quality video.

No matter who you are, no matter how you're raised, no matter what, everyone lies and that's the truth, amirite?

House says so, so it must be : )

It's annoying how every post on this site exaggerates, amirite?

EVERY post? : )

If you repeat any word to yourself enough times, it starts to sounds foreign, amirite?

Darnit the "save edit" box went away. sound

It's weird to think how people kept track of dates in B.C.E. Assumably, people wrote down the year on documents, but what did they write? Did they pick a random number, then count down the years from there just knowing when Jesus would die? And then they got to 0 and figured it would be a good time to start counting up?... amirite?
@...you mean B.C.?

ahaaa thanks... it's weird to think how some people who get 3 hours of sleep can function, while others writher in patheticness...

Men: You would like to feel the pain of child birth, just to try and disprove women, amirite?

Actually, it would probably be REALLY satisfying for a lot of woman to see that.

And yeah, pushing a practical bowling ball out of your pelvis is all daisies and sunshine...

@somewhere_I_belong Americans aren't the only country interested in exploring space.

Not saying they are at all: just in general, the American public has a short attention span. For instance, when there is some scientific discovery, it's in the news for about 2 hours.

It would be interesting to know what the heck the first person who tried an egg was thinking, amirite?
@Probably "Wow, I'm really hungry!".

"So let's crack open this white, shiny thing that just popped out of that bird's ass and eat it!"

Spain declared war on the US in the Spanish-American War, not the other way around, amirite?

OH, OKAY, I SEE HOW WE'RE GOING TO DO THIS. YOU'RE GOING TO POST IT ON AMIRITE. THAT'S A SIGN OF WEAKNESS. BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THAT THE U.S. DECLARED WAR ON SPAIN! AHA!! : P

I guess it seems somewhat contradictory when the paparazzi obsessively [and quite ridiculously actually] flock towards celebrities for weeks over tiny things, while the Haitian earthquake was in and out of the news. All in all, it seems like this is a matter of opinion, and I entirely respect yours. And for that matter, I don't even disagree entirely with your original statement. Just thought it was a thought-provoking statement, so I applaud you on that.
