Substitute Words

words-substitute-

I just don’t understand.  Why do people make words up, or substitute words when they don’t know what they’re talking about?  Hell, if I don’t know something I’d just be honest and admit that I just don’t know, and try to describe what I’m talking about in simple terms so that I don’t confuse or complicate matters even more.

I hate people that use (or try to for that matter) complicated vocabulary to try to cover up that they have no clue what their talking about.  It would be much more simple (and less arguments) would take place if people were just honest and admit that they have no clue what their talking about.  I’m more impressed by someone whom admits that they don’t know than someone who tries to cover it up with fancy words like a damned politician.

If you’re afraid that you’re going to make a fool of yourself when talking about something that you have no clue what you’re talking about, just be honest and admit that you have no clue what you’re talking about.  Think about it, if everyone knows that you don’t know, but trying to learn, people will be more open to teach you.

PSA: Leggings are NOT pants

I’m a guy, not that I don’t like seeing stuff like this on the right woman, but there’s a fine line that I don’t think that anyone should cross.  I can understand if the gal is trim and fit, and the leggings weren’t so worn that you can see right through it, but many times when you see a lady in leggings, it’s not a pretty sight, and the person wearing the leggings seems to be oblivious to the world that what they’re wearing is so wrong.  For many men, a trip to the mall is like going on a safari: they get to see camel toe in leopard print.

When you see things like what’s pictured above, it’s tasteless and rather disgusting.  A woman shouldn’t wear clothing like that if they don’t have the body for it.  I understand freedom of expression (and if looking at it from this prospective the freedom should have a gag order).  Yeah, yeah…  I can hear many people saying now: “Well then, don’t look”.  My take on that is, it’s hard to miss if they’re bending over in front of you and shoving their butt in your face.

As I’ve said often in the past, there’s just somethings that a man just shouldn’t see.  And this is one of them.  So please, please, please remember that leggings are NOT pants!

Thank you.

Challenger Disaster 30 Years Ago Shocked the World, Changed NASA

Crew of The Space Shuttle Challenger mission STS-51L

Thirty years ago today, NASA suffered a spaceflight tragedy that stunned the world and changed the agency forever.  If you wish to learn more about the Challenger tragedy, I have a source page below, or at NASA’s website here.

Please take a moment to remember the brave souls whom lost their lives on this fateful day 30 years ago with a moment of silence.  Without brave astronauts who risked their lives going into space, we wouldn’t have many of the things that we take for granted today.
