On more than one occasion on this board I have pointed out that OPINION is not FACT. People don't get it. They go on CNN and listen to someone say something and take it as fact. MOSTLY IT'S OPINION.
Let me add also that most people, it seems, cannot put facts and opinions IN CONTEXT.
Most will NEVER read a transcript.
Most will not go and double check what's being posted to make sure it's correct.
Most will believe almost anything if it's THEIR GUY.
And Most think personal attacks further their argument. (They do not).
Most are not concerned with their CHARACTER, but more concerned with THEIR STUFF.
I could go on but. It's the world we live in. Go out and get AWAY FROM YOUR COMPUTER AND THE NEWS for a while.

During my few decades of life i’ve only encountered undesirable people. I don’t believe there is good people anymore. Everytime i talk to someone i wish i hadn’t.
I will try to explain o e thing i am sick of
People who speak opinions as fact. When i was very young i learned that if you aren’t 100% sure about something you should stress that. For example, you don’t need to eat everyday to stay alive. That is a fact and so i said “you don’t”. Before i knew for a fact i would say “i heard” that you don’t need to eat everyday. Basically showing that what i am saying is uncertain. Everyday i encounter people who would say you need, you should, you have to, you’ll die if you don’t etc. i can’t understand why so many people speak assertively with confidence when saying rumors or opinions and they’ll even talk down to you like youre stupid if you show uncertainty.
Another thing i’m sick of is people trying to control every conversation and scenario. Its as if everyone believes they should be the certer of attention and i should sit on the side as their fan and support them. Imagine people who speak opinions and rumors as fact trying to domibate every minute of your life. Thats what i experience everyday.
I’m also sick of trying to build up a good mood and having it crapped on by others. Everyday i will try to motivate myself and be positive but the people around will try to shoot down my truths with their rumors and opinions.
I’ve also noticed on dozens of forums that opposition to whats popular/trendy is responded to with deletes and bans. I’m sick of going to different forums, reading sonething interesting then going back later and the threads deleted.
This world seems to be a mess.
I just wanted to tell someone that i’m sick of it and have given up on humanity
