My tongue is firmly in my cheek. :) Oddly, nobody has yet posted that this article is a waste of time and that they have better things to do than read this rubbish. Maybe people are starting to realize what "Frivolous Friday" is all about. :)
I agree and actually love these little "time waster" articles, they break up the day when I have time to go through them and if I don't, I just come back later. Yeah, they're not all winners, but so what? I hate when people read them and. every. single. time. complain about it. People come on here and try to convince us of how important their time is by saying how much of it they wasted reading an article.
Whether this particular item is or is not is up to each reader to decide for themselves. What actually continues to amaze me is just how much 'stuff' is out there, some of which takes boatloads of time to consume- and then inevitably in the comments section, one (or many) will whine about it being what a waste of their time it was. Seems to me that a quick peek for five seconds should already give anyone an idea. Even sucker headlines that get you there in the first place are pretty obvious. So, if that's the case, why, at ones' own choosing, did they choose to waste their time, and then take even more time to b*tch about it afterward?
Would tell us what your time is worth: less than nothing, you pompous jerk. What do you mean, "they"? That has to include me, your not having bothered to specify condition or situation. Go on. Tell me all about the rubbish of my being. I clicked through every one of them. Your incomplete ass is what I live for here.
My actual post had nothing to do with either whining or b*tching. Please go back read it again. Slowly this time.
I was seeing if I could head off all the complainers who dis articles like this (after reading it anyway, which always makes me scratch my head). So you just read headings and then react with both feet? I guess you didn't have time to read the actual content of my post because you had used up too much of your own precious time looking at all the photos?
No need for name calling. They are being sarcastic. I'm sure that is what the "tongue in cheek" thing is about. Since we don't have a gender neutral pronoun, "they" is the correct usage. Sorry if I'm annoying, I just think you are being too rough. /k.c.
Arcturus909, I read your post. I also thought it was sarcastic and funny. "Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit." (you get it?) Apparantly, those who were supposed to pick up on your humor got it and those who didn't, well, they'll always find something to complain about even if they don't know what it is. ;)
Yes, belvedere64, you got that I was using sarcasm to try and head off all the people who spend time reading the lighter articles and then complain that their time was wasted. I quite enjoy the "Frivolous Friday" articles (as I call them) and read them if I have the time. If I don't have time, I don't read them. But I would certainly never complain that someone ELSE wasted my time. I am firmly in command of my own time and if it gets wasted I understand that it is *I* who have wasted it!
