Life is short.....

I'll move this brilliant post over here from the just closed personal thread of another "poster".

Some people don't like advice, either. I have lots of good advice, but I've been told to just listen to what they say and not give them my advice. That brought on a momentary silence, believe me.

Not long, but momentary.​

I been thinking about this a lot of late. Wondering why people have to be so picky...so touchy. I see it all the time. People have their say on social media and then pitch a fit if you dare to give them a piece of good advice. Is everyone so enamoured with themselves and their own opinions that free speech will not be tolerated?

Yep, it'a a plain out and out attack on free speech. Scream and yell in their face to shut them up, or unfriend them, or kick them off your thread.

Little people living in little boxes. What a shame.


I'm wondering how long it will be before we cannot even freely gather on the streets. We certainly can't now if we wear certain hats or are overheard saying certain things.

Don't be afraid of hearing advice. You just may learn something new. Life is short.

It’s already a fact of American life.
Check out “Free Speech Zones” or “Protest Zones."

Love you back, little Tex. ;)


You know, don't you, that we can only say, "A Person of color", or "A Person of small stature", or "A Person of little intellect"?

I've been being schooled on those things from a psychologist friend of mine.


Not sure about you, but the task is too great for this "Person of the Old School". :dunce:

Are you KIDDING me?!? If you walk on eggshells: someone is bound to complain about either the crunching noises are making their skin crawl or you're being cruel to animals by stealing their young to eat.

I already learned words for all that, and they take up a lot less room.

You could really frustrate that friend by always saying, "This is not about me".

When they complain, serve them scrambled eggs.
With bacon of course.

There's a line, and maybe a fine one, between constructive criticism /advice, and just being a crank, and that line belongs in the eye of the beholder, no matter how unjust that is. They get to decide whether we're just being cranks, no matter whether we know we're being cranks or not.

The only line is between common sense and nonsense.

Life is too short to allow a big frog in an itty bitty puddle keep me from voicing my opinion.

It's too bad Tam's thread received the kiss of death because one member insisted on making himself the focus.

Life is too short, folks.

I was enjoying my participation in that thread :(

It was a good thread...even had a "case in point" example staring us in the face.

Triggered by a simple word while real mockery goes unnoticed because it's so couched in flourish.

Hey, it was even boasted about. Did you notice?

"So mote it be" is a ritual phrase used by Freemasons, in Rosicrucianism, and more recently by Neopagans.

In that usage the context is a mocking ritualistic formality.
