Wesker's line in RE5 i'll see you dead is really dumb, whatever happened to good old fashioned i'll kill you or prepare to die.

Wesker's line is the worst line in RE since those famously bad lines way back in RE1.

"So, does snow hover over sand?" << coming from an assistant manager. She must have seen my expression as she quickly tried and failed to make it into a joke.

A former friend of mine told me he lost a coin down a drain and waited 7 years to go and look for it, i was :confused: why wait 7 years to look for it.

One day at school i overheard someone say when i grow up i want to be a frying pan.

A girl in my class when I was 18 once said "Is China called China because that's where china comes from?"

A Finnish politician opposing same sex marriage in Finland:

"What next? People want to marry their dogs soon too?"

mepsipax 26-06-15 17:42

^ That's like a public figure here in Ireland, coming up to our referendum, said (as an argument against gay marriage) "Gay people already have it good here. They're getting put to death in other countries!" :rolleyes:

Vinkula 26-06-15 17:43

What the hell :confused: That's like a threat or something :eek: Sounds that way anyway

Tyrannosaurus 26-06-15 19:28

I also hate it when people use the phrase "based off of" instead of "based on".

This. :pi:


Oh, and when people say "YOLO" as an excuse to act like an idiot.

scion05 27-06-15 18:26

"For all intensive purposes" - You'd have to pretty dumb to actually say that. The sad thing is some people will be reading this and wondering what is wrong with that sentence :(

I'll never forget overhearing an older lady talking about how she was taking her cat to the vets "to get him orchestrated" :D

I think my favourite is "Groinacologist" - They get the matter sort of right, and they successfully make it sound so medical... but also so perverse :eek: :vlol:

Mr GaGa 27-06-15 18:46

When People say "I Love You" such a disgusting and horrible thing to say to another human being :(

scion05 27-06-15 18:51

Oh dear, someone been burned?

I love you is a wonderful thing to hear providing the other person means it :tmb:

When people tell type 1 diabetics at least it ain't cancer.

scion05 27-06-15 19:04

^How rude, I've worked with diabetes much in the past, and completed a diabetes management course. It's hardly a blessing.

That's just it, alot of people don't mean it :( , so much power is in those 3 words. I prefer people just don't say it unless they are family ofcourse

scion05 27-06-15 19:28

Well I've had someone declaring love for me over the phone for the last month. But he's a psychopath, and we're through :tmb:

Tell me about it. Type 1 diabetes ain't as bad as cancer but it's still pretty bad.

scion05 27-06-15 20:54

The complications can be equally as bad though, and the detriment to quality of life can be equally as horrendous too.

Paddy 27-06-15 23:00

People who say **** like someone always has it worse off than you when you admit to having depression/anxiety.

While someone may argue it is true, the fact is no one's circumstances are better or worse just different and to downplay things because someone else might be worse off just grinds my ****ing gears.

People like that seem to think that misery is a competition, where if you aren't winning, you don't get to be upset about anything.

Take a woman whose entire family died and she was then raped by a gang of gorillas who then gave her AIDS. Whoooops! There's a colony of people just like that in Madagascar, but they are starving, too! You just had lunch, missy! :mad: You don't have room to complain ;)

Yes exactly.

Just no.

"Gingers has no soul"

*me looking at a beautiful black lady and a woman next to me said "If only she's white, she'd be prettier!". :facepalm: To which I replied: "She's pretty as she already is!"*

"Asians are nerds"

lol @ Gingers having no souls. Cartman always says that :D I can't imagine anyone who has ever said that really meant it.

If only she were white? Whoever said that is a seaward.

"Asians are nerds" is attributed towards the high pressurized culture many Asian countries have instilled on education. Smart people=nerds, I guess.

I don't think there's anything dumb about personal taste. I'm pretty much the same when it comes to which women I find pretty and I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who prefer darker women. The only dumb thing is saying it out loud in front of them because it's obviously rude.

Paddy if you're referring to my post, I apologize, it came out a bit dick-ish.That wasn't my intention.I meant to say that I can relate:)

I take depression very seriously.Society does not, which is why doctors just push a pill towards you and baptize you cured.

My friend has said all of the following:
The capital of China is Japan, right?
Wait, Japan is a country?
But Africa is a place in America so it doesn't have countries! I'm learning!
Where is Europe?
Is Ireland a continent?
And my personal favourite:
What's Asia?

Trenton 28-06-15 22:25

^Is your friend a three year old? :p

Newraider75 28-06-15 22:30

Add 13 years.
Apparently she gets consistent B's in Geography :pi:

Orionvalentine 29-06-15 10:25

This reminds me of that member who made a thread asking about the different seasons in southern hemisphere vs northern hemisphere, then one bright spark actually asked if we called our cold weather summer and our hot weather winter, to line up with the rest of the world...


Then you get the brain dead idiots who say Australia is not a continent.

Lara_Fan1 29-06-15 11:58

I once said to my father.

Who invented dogs? I was meant to ask, what did they evolve from/how long have dogs been around but I came out with that question. What was worse, was I was 19 years old when I asked.

Skip forward a year, so I was 20. I was watching my brothers fish in the living room and without thinking proceeded to say; Do fish drink air? The way we drink water, is it like, the opposite for fish?

Skip to a few months ago (now 21). Me, brother and father were testing our knowledge (if you haven't gathered by now, I have none). My father said; Lewis, where is Hungary? to which I replied; It's in Germany, I think everyone knows that!.

So yeah, I'm as thick as pig **** sometimes :facepalm:.

I've also had people argue with me that Antarctica is the largest continent! Just because of the way it looks on a flat projection map! Don't these people realise the earth is round? :D

Paddy 29-06-15 12:06

''You don't look like you have Aspergers''

Yeah I've been told that by some ignorant dumb ****s. lol Anyone saying **** like that deserves a smack over the head hard.
Context is implying because I don't look to have it in appearance it means they don't believe I have it.

This is the one I can't get over. I'd be flabbergasted if a 16 year old asked me this. We're barely even a speck on the world map. :pi:
