    Default What do you think?

    A friend of mine sent me the following. I heartily agree and I'm certain that there will be those on this forum who will concur:

    Why don't the 99% of us who aren't offended by everything stop catering to the 1% who are.

    What do you think?

    I'm 715.025% offended by the clown that impugned my math skills.

    I'm just not impugned. I have to admit. I was 100% absolutely no good at maths. English was my subject.

    Tut tut! It's a well known fact that 75.9% of people put a percentage point in statistics to make themselves look clever!

    A minimum of 3 decimal places for precise believable tomfoolery. Ask any politician that has their eye on your salt.

    I think that for someone who regularly posts about all the things they don't like, I find the implication that you're not offended by anything to be very dubious...

    because it's next to impossible to not make out you're offended if you disagree with someones opinion these days.
    Even if the person you're talking to is ok with just agreeing to disagree, there will always others to pick up on that and blow everything out of proportion, and it goes downhill from there.
