rage-tastic

Non-answers kill me. I've been known to give a few myself but what the hell is up with people in law school speaking pure nonsense and everyone else nodding knowingly??? Overheard today:

"Individual consumers, you know, just contribute to this marketplace of ideas, and at the end of the day, that's how it is."

"Everything we've discussed here, this whole theme, is uniquely American in principle."

"Well, politicians are always treated differently, and that's not going to change, and it really just depends on whether you like Democrats or Republicans better, you know?"

"Are you not making my point? That's exactly my point, on another level."

"I don't necessarily know if we can trust much of anything, in my opinion."

These are all code for "I've been playing Solitaire for the last hour and am going to offer up a non-opinion opinion to act like I am particularly aware and nonchalant when really I'm kind of a douche." I love it, and I can fake it with the best of them, but COME ON. Everyone must've watched this and taken it to heart:

Thanks for translating these non-answers, as my head hurt reading them. And yes, Jesus was a great Merican. Thanks for stopping by.

I agree with everything you said.

i just feel that my experience as a human gives me a different perspective on your experience as a human.......

are you sure the people in your class aren't also taking education classes at westminster? they sound familiar.

Aaron Schaefer said...

wow...the synergy of your statements has really opened my eyes and made me think bilaterally

AlliSMiles said...

do you take notes on people's stupid comments? or do you just attract them. seriously, you hear the funniest things.

Jay and Jess said...

Are these quotes from your class at the U? They really sound like they are

KT said...

That is hilarious. Since I know my vote won't count in Florida anyway, I'm definitely going to take a nap in my car.

Hmm, I experienced the same thing (on a different level) in nursing school...maybe it's just BYU...?

Where are the posts? Too busy with your side project? ;)

gurrbonzo said...

What's that supposed to mean, anon? You consider my baby a "side project"? hehehehe...

Erin said...

what's great is that the non-answers will carry over straight into the legal profession. they don't end in law school. don't even try hoping for that.

I loved that clip. It really will help me come November... :)
(And that almost came out really dirty, but I think I stopped it. ooops haha.) And really, nothing in your vagina? Couldn't they just say, no sex or tampons? Ewww.... That just inspired me even more not to have children.
