First of all, get over yourselves.
Why is everyone so quick to say “Do you know what the definition of insanity is?” and think they’re the brilliant first one to do so?
Tired of it.
I’ve heard that question, and the answer of “doing something over and over again and expecting a different result,” a million times. I’m not here for it anymore. I’m exhausted with you stupid, let-me-try-to-be-smart elitist shitheads.
Ya’ll always think you’re the first one to quote this. But I’ve heard it so many times now my ears ring.
You probably think I’m exaggerating. Unfortunately I’m not.
It’s like I’m in the company of Einstein or the Wright brothers, watching that entitled smile come across your face as you attempt to enlighten me with your inferior, smug, copy-cat education.
The reality is ya’ll heard it watching tv, or listening to the radio, or your favorite podcast, or some other method while you were solo. And, since no one else was around, you think you’ve just discovered something. Now you can’t wait to steal it, fire it off around others, and have them think you’re smart.
Forcing it into conversations left and right.
You’re a step or two below the people who ask and answer their own questions out loud to make you think they’re deep thinkers….Persuading you to believe they truly regret their actions. When in reality all they’re doing is slinging more of their own shit onto the pile.
“Do I feel bad about stealing that car? Yes. If I had it to do all over again would I participate in doing that? Absolutely not. Do I regret my actions? Of course. But I can’t live in the past, there’s nothing I can do about it now, what’s important is moving forward…”
All that shit is so obvious.
Yet people are constantly impressed by that sort of thing. Anytime anybody famous says something like that after being caught up in a scandal, the media and public are always quick to say ‘what a stand-up guy,’ ‘at least he owned up to it,’ ‘people make mistakes, I was glad to see he took responsibility.’
And you’re only slightly above the ‘that being said’ guy that hedges everything before blasting someone…”You know I really like Marcus, he’s a standup guy, does a lot of work in the community, and he has always been a man of his word,…that being said I can’t stand Marcus. He’s a piece of shit and if it were up to me he’d be fired.”
Stephen A. Smith is a master at this. Every time he takes a shot at someone he’s quick to compliment them on the front or back ends. This way he’s protected. The players still respect him, his viewers love him for taking a stand, and he gets to keep his lucrative job at ESPN, sitting at a desk spitting out asinine sports takes that have been recycled over decades.
Meanwhile he does nothing but present possible view points from each side while managing to not attach his name to any of them.
It’s something only intelligent people see, and many of them refuse to acknowledge.
Welcome to sports media, circa de 2k. Inventory and accountability be damned.
Which brings me back to the fabulous folks out there ready to throw the definition of insanity at you at every turn.
A couple of fundamental problems you face:
1) At this point it’s the equivalent of sayin ‘duh’ in the ’90s.
2) It’s not the definition.
In-san-i-ty: The state of being seriously mentally ill; madness.
In-san-i-ty: Extreme foolishness or irrationality.
That’s it. That’s the list.
Stay away from me with all your other bullshit.
I was all set to sit down tonight and merely write about how I can’t stand the people that use that phrase and think they’re smart.
I was possibly gonna write it off as merely a pet peeve and go from there.
Then I looked up the definition and lost my mind.
After all that, you’re telling me none of you motherfuckers have any idea what you’re actually talking about?
So we can just make up our own definitions to words in the English language now?
No wonder all these Vikings fans are out here (having watched the exact 16 games I did this year) saying the defense is young, talented, and full of promise.
The definition of young must mean constantly 5 yards behind on every play. Talented must mean doomed from having any potential career success in future NFL ventures. Full of promise must be defined as a defense so bad that their leading sack man at the end of the season was a guy they traded after 6 games.
The reality is Minnesota carved the maximum amount of meat out of the roadkill they had, but still ended up starving up front, and in that secondary, by the last 4 games of the season.
And they have no more frozen meat from last years kill in the freezer waiting to be thawed out.
To think otherwise would be, well,
