You are Not Special
The Event ^ | 08/05/2012 | Jay Pounder

Posted on 08/05/2012 1:52:03 PM PDT by jaypounder

You are not special…

America… here is ugly truth… you are not special.

You are not better than anyone else. There is nothing you can do better than anyone else.

Everyone is just like you.

You are not faster, smarter, prettier, or more special in the eyes man and God.

But somehow you still think so.

Check this video out...

Depressing huh? This young ladies parents are doing her a huge disservice. By telling her that she is good at what she is doing is actually really, really bad for her. It is a false sense of hubris.

I can't help but just cringe while I listen to this. She is absolutely butchering an important piece of our history, and her parents think this is just wonderful and special.

Come on over to The Event to read more...

You are not special…

Probably because I don't have a blog like you.

America… here is ugly truth… you are not special.

I know, only a few like you got to ride on the "Special" bus.

You are not better than anyone else. There is nothing you can do better than anyone else.

One day I hope to learn to pimp a blog as well as you do.

Everyone is just like you.

They all think you are a semi-literate blogpimp?

You are not faster, smarter, prettier, or more special in the eyes man and God.

Everybody sucks, and should write blogs about it!

But somehow you still think so.

Well, YOU think pretty highly of yourself, excerpting your blog and all...

Check this video out...

That's interesting, the video. You claim authorship.
So you made this video?

I can't help but just cringe while I listen to this.

I can't help but cringe when reading what you have written here.
God alone knows how awful the mess is at your blog.

Come on over to The Event to read more...

Hell no.

I won't even bother asking why you felt the need to excerpt.

I'd hide that crap too, if I wrote so poorly.

Against my better judgment I clicked on that pathetic mush of meaningless generalities. Embarrassing. I want that two minutes of my life back.

Shaking your admonitory finger at a country of 300 million people and addressing it as a single individual is the work of an over-generalizing dunce too lazy to think about the meaning of his words.

There is nearly no informed point of view that does not regard America as "special", for better or worse. Ask our enemies.

We used to be; but we didn’t just get here by ourselves, mostly from within...

But guess what, catsh!t, we can still come back when/if the sleeping/drunk/giant wakes up...then the catsh!t gets covered up—PRONTO !!!!!

Ya don’t wanna be around when morning comes, kemo sabe...

It won’t be pretty...

Semper Sound Ad-vice...

Just my opinion...

You are a fluke
Of the universe.
You have no right to be here.....
Deteriorata! Deteriorata!
Go placidly
Amid the noise and waste.
And remember what comfort there may be
In owning a piece thereof.
Avoid quiet and passive persons
Unless you are in need of sleep.
Ro-tate your tires.

Speak glowingly of those greater than yourself
And heed well their advice,
Even though they be turkeys.
Know what to kiss.....and when!

Consider that two wrongs never make a right
But that THREE.........do.
Wherever possible, put people on hold.
Be comforted that in the face of all aridity and disillusionment
And despite the changing fortunes of time,
There is always a big future in computer main-te-nance.
Chorus

You are a fluke
Of the universe.
You have no right to be here.
And whether you can hear it or not
The universe is laughing behind your back.
Remember the Pueblo.
Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle and mu-ti-late.
Know yourself.
If you need help, call the FBI.
Exercise caution in your daily affairs,
Especially with those persons closest to you.
That lemon on your left, for instance.
Be assured that a walk through the ocean of most souls
Would scarcely get your feet wet.
Fall not in love therefore;
It will stick to your face.
Gracefully surrender the things of youth:
The birds, clean air, tuna, Taiwan
And let not the sands of time
Get in your lunch.
Hire people with hooks.
For a good time call 606-4311;
Ask for “Ken.”
Take heart amid the deepening gloom
That your dog is finally getting enough cheese.
And reflect that whatever misfortune may be your lot
It could only be worse in Milwaukee.
Chorus

You are a fluke
Of the universe.
You have no right to be here.
And whether you can hear it or not
The universe is laughing behind your back.
Therefore, make peace with your god
Whatever you conceive him to be-—
Hairy thunderer, or cosmic muffin.
With all its hopes, dreams, promises and urban renewal
The world continues to deteriorate.
GIVE UP!

Reprise

You are a fluke
Of the universe.
You have no right to be here.
And whether you can hear it or not
The universe is laughing behind your back.

Obama, reader of "The Post American World." Obama, who doesn't believe there is anything to American Exceptionalism. So now we know Obama's FReeper name is jaypounder.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Since humblegunner hasn’t made it here yet, I’ll ask: why’d you feel it necessary to excerpt your blog?

I got this one, the pimp notification popped up as soon as he posted.

Thanks for the heads up, though. Be ever vigilant!

In Customer Servicespeak, Special is a pseudonym for “Problem”.

If we aren’t special, we aren’t a problem.

My Official Pimp Auto-Notifier was on but I was asleep after a hard day of being Saturday.

So Jay, you said you’d post your blog in full “in a heartbeat” if you could only format it.

Well, Syncro showed you how to do that, and last thread I did it for you. This begs the question - Are you too slow to figure out how we did that, or were you being insincere in your desire to post in full?

Don’t get me wrong, if I wrote like a third grader, I wouldn’t want it posted either. Come to think of it, I think I wrote better than this in third grade. (You know - I sure hate to dress you down in public, but you asked me not to do it on private mail, so here we are.)

I think there’s one big problem here. You don’t understand pronouns. *We FReepers* are special. ~YOU~ are not. (Except in the JRandonFreeper parlance of “Aren’t you Spay-shull?”)

As an after thought, I should congratulate you!

You posted this video -

I can think of no better analogy for reading your blog entries than having to listen to Harper Gruzins attempt to sing. Bravo! Superb choice.
