a sense of proportion

The haters just LOVE it when their perceived adversaries experience setbacks.  If their "enemies" are shown to think/be/do wrong, haters believe that makes themselves right.  ... Wrong.  ;-)  

The difference between a six-foot man gaining ten pounds and a five-foot woman doing the same is MASSIVE, pun intended.  If i gain five pounds, it can immediately be seen, but for my husband to do so is hardly perceptible.  The point:  SOME PEOPLE are NOT obese even if they've gained a few, but others still ARE, even when she drops a few (and i'm not talking about anyone in my family now).  I needn't name any names for conclusions to be reached ....  


Oh dear -- now i'm reminding myself of early twentieth-century popular culture!  First, "that's right, you're wrong," and now the kind of society-gossip-page journalism found in a lot of '30s movies!  But then, i've long been a sucker for AMC and TCM.

  4. I used to read Grashow's comments and think, okay, a bit curt and obnoxious, but the odd reasonable question nonetheless. Wow, this guy is turned into a complete asshole.
    Anyway, hope you're having a lovely time on the cruise!

  7. What if in a future we will see trolls getting their own blogs where they would be complaining to each other about the lack of democracy in a blogosphere and compare experiences of being mistreated by virtual tyrants?
    I think people should abandon places where they are not welcomed out of a self-respect.
