I posted before I saw your answer. I agree I totally ignore their opinions but I also think their not very bright. Just a figure of speech of course.

So if you heard a Nobel Prize winner swear, you would think they weren't very bright? You must underestimate a lot of people if that is your benchmark for intelligence.

Also, how is that a figure of speech? Maybe you need to brush up on the definition.

Or maybe you should brush up on the world doesn't have to define things by your standards.

GAG ME! PETA is everywhere trying to accuse abuse etc in anything that has to do with animals. I think it is just to get publicity and make more $$ (donations etc). If they admitted there was nothing going on in a certain sport - no one would contribute anymore.

My husband and I are getting into raising bucking bulls. They were supposed to have some kind of demonstration outside of a PBR event - I forget how long ago. They have been INVITED numerous times to come and see how these bulls are treated. They have respectfully declined every time, yet they still point the finger.

They make me sick - they should concentrate more on going after the reports of animal abuse that go through the SPCA and help them investigate rather than make unproven accusations against specific sports as a whole. How many times have you seen a horse standing in a tiny pen in the rain with no shelter and mud with very little room to move??? THAT is where they could do some good.

lol, what?

Definitions are pretty standardly accepted as true... At least that's what they taught me in school :]

Along with good sentence structure.

What they taught you in school and sentence structure has nothing to do with the original topic. Or isn't that important today? But by all means bring up grammar and spelling a lot of people do when they have nothing else.

wow I didn't realize what I was walking into here - sorry to interrupt, I think. I only read the first page, I didn't see the others.

FYI I cuss like a sailor, yet I have a very high IQ

Lol. I mentioned sentence structure as I had a hard time understanding your previous post. Not because I 'have nothing else'.

I do believe you were the one who originally went off topic, talking about name calling and profanity in other threads.
