Eventually I may come up with lists on things that please me. Until then, you’re stuck with this. You’re welcome.
♣ This could just be me; hell, everything could just be me. I find it pompous that when someone is using slightly silly examples on a topic such as literature to show how it seems to have degraded over the centuries, you have to point out that the examples are beneath the topic. So I chose Twilight, Hunger Games and 50 Shades. Does it matter that the authors of Twilight and 50 Shades are not “trained in the field” of writing? Does it matter that Hunger Games is a Scholastic, Inc. book made for young adults? No. Why? Because my point was that these popular series are what’s being put out by mainstream. Gone are authors like Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Harper Lee, etc. Literature has become all about pop-lit. Where did the art and intelligence go? Understand I am talking mainstream here, I know there are fantastic authors out there that are probably being smothered by the garbage coming out.
♣ Tell me it’d be best for me to change my stance on gun laws with only the reason that England has ¼ the homicide rate that America has. Don’t bother linking any actual data. This may or may not make a difference, but has it occurred to you that England is roughly ¼ of the size of America? Plus if you really want to break it down the percentage of guns used in our homicide rate, it is significantly low compared to other means.
♣ Tell an inmate on death row that you don’t believe humans should be executed. How, again, do you think he got on death row?
♣ Blame everyone for everything wrong in your life. You’re 32, what you suffer has everything to do with your choices as an adult. Especially talk a lot of smack about the person who’s done nothing but bend over backwards for you.
