Does only your opinion count?

Of course I'm not offended. I would never be able to function if I spent all my time caring about the opinions of people who don't realize I'm right.

Perhaps I should have said sources for the facts.


No, the way you worded it was fine. I was just pointing out that not every opinion *can* be backed up by facts, that's all.

I enjoy Shingeki no Kyojin and the viciously insane fanboys/fangirls in the fandom all need therapy or a life. The same is said for the ones that dislike the show that say hurtful words to the people that like it. Not all fans are crazy/pricks though.


Thats my point. You can like the anime, and I can simply say I'm not interested without hurtful words. And people can respond with "Okay" without being rude.


i like this, there needs to be more like you on the interwebs (;-;)

Nope, I actually prefer it when people have different opinions.

Only thought-out opinions count in my book.

Why?

"Why" is an important question. People tend to get caught up in advertising, in peer-pressure, in all kinds of hype. I will hear out any opinion if it is thought-out. If you cannot answer the question, "why" or If you regurgitate bullshit , then your opinion does not matter to me.

In my daily life I hear bad opinions all the time. AR rifles, Obamacare, iPhones, hybrid cars, vegan diets -- almost all of these things exist because people believe in and follow along with stupid bullshit. Show me a person who can explain WHY iPhones are great based on personal experience and well-made arguments and I'll show you a person I'm willing to hear out.

I may not always agree, but if you think about "why" rather than regurgitating crap, I'll at least listen.

In the absence of authority, opinion is meaningless.

There is no authority when it comes to matters of taste.

That said, persuasion is the only method people have to synchronize others with themselves. Though when it comes to matters of entertainment the desire to persuade others is at base, an essentially useless endeavor. Our minds are isolated. Emotions of disgust, or joy, are neither shared, nor corrupted, by mutual agreement.

Question, what are AR rifles? augmented reality rifles? That sounds really cool.

I see, very informative, thanks.

Apple has exclusive parts and software in their products that make it easier to avoid viruses just because of their exclusiveness. (unless you jailbreak)
*note: not better parts just exclusive to apple.
Also I like apple because of their OS, personal preference, and I've been with apple products since I was a kid, dad bought the Power Macintosh and I just was amazed...

no problem, funny thing is
I did do my own research, I actually didn't know that was their slogan xD

Yes I also know that mac is like a dictator, yes I use mircosoft OS, also know that apple took out their firewire which sucks. I also know that you can get viruses on macs.

Also, I have a hackintosh because of the limitations on macs, I also run boot camp to overrun those limitations.

I'm lazy, I prefer having my computer be a dictator and do things automatically, but when I need control I just switch over to microsoft's OS

last thing, windows 8 sucks (7 rules) and I've never used an Ipad.

The same is true of hybrid cars which are WORSE for the environment due to increased manufacturing, shipping and disposal costs.


This is a highly common myth. There aren't any facts to back up this myth, only a vast number of editorials written by conservative morons espousing it to be true. Please understand that you do have a right to your own opinion, but nobody has a right to their own facts. That particular myth is a claim which is contradictory to a wealth of data which compares the tonnage of toxic emissions from hybrid cars to non-hybrid and diesel vehicles pulling the same amount of weight over the same lifetime of the engine. Furthermore it's also contrary to the reality of how little difference there is when it comes to the byproducts produced during the manufacturing of the components required for each.

I can't expect the whole world to see my opinion the way I do. The majority of what I do and enjoy isn't really widely accepted. The way I look isn't even accepted very well where I live.

I will go to lengths to discuss and try to help people see things the way I do though, but I'm certainly not offended if people disagree or don't like the things that I do, and it's not really worth your time to try to force people to see your side of things.

Opinion and fact are different. If somebody is flat out wrong I would probably go the extra mile to try to help them see sense, but otherwise it's all a bit trivial.

Oh and by the way, you all suck for not liking brutal death metal!
