Price is an idiot that does stuff like this all the time. :-P
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

That's one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.


Although to play a slight devil's advocate, when you're talking about non-scientific terms, it is weird how often "dark" and "black" are used in a negative connotation and "white" is more pure and innocent

(obviously not talking about a black hole, because, well, that's just what it is.)


Just something to mull...

I have a Japanese friend who once got very offended when I commented that it "felt a little nippy" outside.

He when back inside and the weather brightened considerably.

No, but a friend of mine did tell me to see it. I have no idea what it's about though.

Break it down for me man!

Nice. Took me a while to get the "nippy" reference, but that's a first for me to hear a Japanese person get offended by that term.

I also used to work with an Indian guy who used to curry favour with the boss. He got offended when we called him a brown-noser.

And then there was this Australian Dodger fan that I knew. He was a jerk.

Basically, light and the color white are usually associated with "good" because of the sun. Darkness and the color black are usually associated with "bad" because of the night. You'll find the same archetypes in most societies throughout history because of the fear people have with darkness.
