Three things that I often see in online discussions, all of which have an inherent flaw in the reasoning and thus aggravate my logic-gland. To be fair, this gland becomes very aggravated by pretty much anything online, not just these three things.
… and then she said she likes me as a friend!”
Oh you poor thing, did your life end?
You were nice to a person in hopes for sex?
And it didn’t happen, so now you’re perplexed?
Nice is the default, you sack of stupid!
Not for forcing the arrow of cupid.
But now you’re hurt and lie to yourself
“It’s her fault, I’m perfect, like a beautiful elf!”
Lying about your feelings and your intention,
Is dicky, to be fair, dicky. Pay attention!
… asking for it with the way she was dressed.”
The idiocy of this statement has me slightly impressed.
By the same logic, if you see someone
Wearing boxing shorts when going for a run
Means you can punch them out of the blue
And, although they can always sue,
“They had it coming, wearing what they did.
If you’re not ready to be punched, wear other pants kid.”
… is fake, but what I found, it just has to be real.”
Really? The other proof is cotton, yours is steel?
Just with the virtue of agreeing with your bias,
Its validity is raised higher than the Himalayas?
Maybe you should, for once in your life,
Be critical to things said during times of strife
By the people in your team as well? Eh? Maybe?
Not just nod and coo like an overgrown baby.
This might even *GASP* lead to a rational talk.
But that requires thinking, no wonder you balk.
