A place for rants, raves and mad gibberings.

Don't really have anything interesting for this at the moment, so here's my opinion on a moronic idiom

Apple of ones eye. Something that is adored; a cherished person or object- a cliche. Chuck is the apple of his mothers eye. (Charles mother adores him more than anything else)

How the fuck did someone come up with an expression like this? Sure it makes sense to have a concise way of saying there is something that someone likes maybe a bit too much, but apple of the eye? It doesn't make sense, you can infer that it's a beauty in the eye of the beholder kind of thing but I've never met anybody (that I can recall) who looks at apples in such a way, or even a person who said the apple was their favorite fruit. It's the kind of fucked expression that no-one ever thinks about too deeply or at all because as soon as you do it falls apart.
It supposedly started with the bible but there is never any explanation as to why it's apple of the eye and not focus of the eye or focus of their affection. It's easy enough to look up what it means and where it came from, but I can't find any explanation as to the why

Fucking words...

This whole society view on dating pisses me off. The stereotype that guys have to be the one to initiate, the games girls play, the bullshit involves, the lying, being blown off, cheating, morality of it all, all of it. I'm so sick of this shit, why can't woman have the fucking motivation to initiate a damned conversation, or at the very least show some fucking obvious interest, I wonder how many couple could have been because of fear of rejection. Hell, even the anti-homosexuality views most of the world shares pisses me off as well, why does love have to be gender defined, it is bullshit. All of it is bullshit. If you like someone, GO FUCKING TELL THEM, if someone tells you they like you and you don't know them, talk to them, don't go all "AWW THATS CREEPY AS FUCK YOU CREEPER GTFO", fuck it all.

People who try to profit from the misfortune and tragedy of others need to just shoot themselves in the face and save everyone a lot of trouble from them being around.

This past weekend, there was a fire down the street from me, that killed a little girl that i had known since the day she was born. An extremely sad course of events that has devastated an entire family and shaken the entire community. The family needs a lot of support right now,emotional and financial. The community and even people as far away as California have been donating money, clothes, and furniture to help this family get back on their feet. A cousin of mine is taking care of collecting all the donations and making sure that they actually go to the family. Yet one community member 'volunteered' to help handled the donations as well, and stated that she required a 25% cut of all monetary donations to cover the time she would be taking from her schedule to do such a thing. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? These people need help,and you offer to take the money that people are donating to them? People like this make me sick. They also make me want to kick them in the face. A family just lost a daughter/sister and you say you will help them for a charge? NO! You need to go die before you do anymore harm to this family.

That woman is a genuine scum bag. The idea of taking a cut of donations/charity is the very definition of abhorrent behavior and though I don't believe in karmic justice things like this make me deeply hope that it exists.

at least she was direct in her scummy ways. how many charities out there do you guys think are actually legit? how many religions and churches do you guys think are actually legit and not just big moneymaking machines?

i saw an actual ad selling a church with 150 members - pretty big racket, and that's not even the pinprick tip of the racket iceberg.

If I didn't care about what I do throughout the course of my life having meaning and all I cared about was money or power I would go the route of politics or religion. For the religion route either to take over an existing church, to start my own tax exempt religion or through televangelism.

"I gotta tell you the truth... When it comes to bullshit, big time major league bullshit you have to stand in awe of the all time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims; religion. Think about it, religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do every minute of every day and the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things he has a special place full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever til the end of time... But he loves you and he needs money, he always needs money. He's all powerful, all perfect, all knowing and all wise but somehow just can't handle money. Religion takes in billions of dollars, pays no taxes and they always need a little more"

One of my favorite George Carlin Jokes.
