I swear if I read one more title that begs/demands for people to "Wake up" I'll scream.

people are awake dammit, regardless of what reality they wake to they ARE awake...I love the arrogance of the saying, really, as though the only person to be fully awake to the "true" reality is the poster.

Theoretically there are a multitude of realities and we pass through them daily, every time you cross paths with another human being you are entering their reality momentarily and they into yours...so how can one suppose to KNOW what is a state of truthful awakenings with so many people and so many realities all intermingling with one another? Each wakeful to their own state of reality.

There are other catch phrases bouncing around ATS that get a bit irritating but the "wake up people" threads are at the top for me as MOST irritating.

Thanks for the vent
now on to fluffier titles.

I hear you JG.

The way I look at it, there are two kinds of sheeple, those who accept everything they are told, and those who feel they have to go against everything mainstream without question.

The "Wake Up Sheeple!" crowd usually falls into the second catagory.

I think that was Alex Jones?

He deserves a good
IMO anyways.

Of late I would have to add "Channeled Message" and "Time Traveler" to my hit list.

Have a few on me:

"Genuine pix----no hoaxing!"
these photos are never something the poster took eself; just some crappy, wobbly video they found on youtube that looks like my toddler flushed my camera phone down the toilet.

"Why are skeptics so narrow-minded???"
because they focus on, like, the real world, you simpering wimp.

"Who are we to say?"
um, we are the people who post comments about the issue, that's who.

"it's a known fact that . . . ."
if it were really known, you wouldn't have to remind us. This is merely an appeal to an imaginary authority, we are supposed to sheeple-ly subscribe to.

"Get reel, peeple!"
are you encouraging me to film the proceedings in super 8, or to go fishin instead of arguing with the likes of you? Either way, i just lost IQ points reading your mundane thread, which was a repeat of a better, longer thread from last year, which itself was only a parady of one of plato's dialogues.



all the best.

I am so tired of seeing the phrase, "Wrap my mind around it".

Also the phrase, " This is not a one liner".

I've always liked the Whispers In The Dark which went around ATS for a while back a long long time ago.

Its something that should never be spoken of again.

PTB/TPTB really bothers me...I stared at my computer screen for a half hour trying to figure out what the hell that stood for the first time I saw it. That, and MSM. I hate abbreviations; you're typing in a forum people, there is no deadline! You can take the extra two seconds to actually type out "Mainstream Media" or "The Powers That Be"...it's not that hard! It actually makes reading a lot smoother to the newer folk who can't understand what the abbreviation stands for simply by the context of your posts! [/rant]

LOL That one drives me NUTS.

My personal most hated: 'Religion is just a method of control,' with all it's numerous variations. It's especially irritating when the thread is very issue specific but the parrots can't help themselves from saying that generic line in any thread dealing with a religious topic.

Edit: Oh, and '100% Absolute PROOF!!!!...' when it never, ever is. lol

Thanks deson!!! That's a hefty list going on there LOL

Seems there are a lot of "standardized" phrases and sayings here on ATS.

Another I saw recently was "pictures or it didn't happen" LMAO

*sigh* It does get tiring sometimes reading them and I've avoided a lot of threads just based on title alone LOL

I am going to add in comments along the line of "Just Google and you'll see for yourself!"

I'm heading over to the thread now to see the list.

I will leave you with another quote.
'wiki (or google) is your friend'

way to go with that advice.

Shadow watcher, justgeneric,

I have taken the liberty of splitting them and adding them into our master list as "Google is your friend" and "Wiki is your friend".

Skyfloating,
I'm checking out the thread that you linked to. ooog!

Edit to add: (89)

"pictures or it didn't happen" also added.

Skyfloating,
I've just finished reading the thread. My take?

:bnghd: :bnghd: :bnghd: :bnghd:

I agree.
