|We'll have to agree to disagree on that one.|
I don't agree to that.
|I asked a kid who kept saying "NO U" where it came from, and not once did he mention a picture of a Japanese guy with an arm coming out of his mouth.|
I don't get why that is of any significance.
I don't know if you've heard of it, but there's a show I watch called the Venture Bros. I love it. I find it completely hilarious. The thing is, half of the show is it either ripping off, parodying, or referencing some obscure movie or television show. I get some of the references, but I figure for every one I get there's at least 10 I don't. But it doesn't matter, the show is still hilarious.
My point by bringing this up is that just because you don't know where something originated doesn't mean you can't enjoy it or find it funny. So what if these kids don't know about duck rolling, does that really make rick rolling any less fun?
|It's like when someone constantly repeats a joke -- it just stops being funny|
Truth. I understand and agree with this.
Everyone has their own threshold for what is considered 'over used' though. Personally I never got burned out of AYB, and was sad when it started dying out.
Then again I didn't go around looking for it. I think I only saw 2 AYB videos.... the infamous one with the techno track, and some lame "I hate AYB" flash animation some guy named Mortis did way back when (and holy crap, his site is still up! That brings me back).
So I guess it all depends on what circles you hang out in.
|No. I didn't saw what you did there.|
I wonder if that is actually a grammatical correction, or if my statement was already grammatically correct.
Here vs. There seems to depend on your position vs. the person you're speaking to.
If there's a chair 5 feet away from me and you are right next to me, I would say "the chair over there" because the chair is about the same distance from either of us, and is not directly in my grasp.
On the other hand, if the chair is that same 5 feet away but you are 100 feet away, I would say "the chair over here" because I'm significantly closer to the chair than you, even though I may not have the chair immediately in hand.
How does this translate to text on a message board? If I drew an arrow to the line of text I was referring to, would that make it "close enough" to say here instead of there?
I thought the asterisk made it close enough to warrant the usage of 'here', but was I really incorrect?
