Anything you say may be used against you

Extracts from this document...


Anything you say may be used against you You talk seriously, they laugh. You crack a joke, and they look at you with a straight face. In the first case, you wonder if they misunderstood you or if they're just making fun of you. In the second, you're still wondering if they understood you or not, and worse, if you're just plain not funny. Whether you're speaking French, English, Spanish, Chinese, German, or Hebrew (like I do), or baby talk, the communications pipes between you and you interlocutor are not always clean. Language is an important tool. If you've got something to say, you need to know how to say it. If you don't know how to say it, then either you don't say it, and that's not very useful, or you say it and it doesn't quite come out as planned. In both cases, you're pretty much screwed. Whether it is at home, at work, at school, in a bar, in bed, with friends, with lovers, or enemies, the words you speak will carry you through life. They will determine the roads you take and the experiences you will live. You need to know the right terms to use, when to use them, and as many as possible ways to say it. ...read more.


that we want to suck on their nipples. The next big step is adolescence. That's when a whole new language naturally invades our body, soul, and mind. It is the international language of looove. That's when we've stopped sucking on our mom's nipples, now that she is fat and unattractive after 3 or 4 pregnancies, and start looking for new nipples. In the early stages, we start flirting with and courting the opposite sex (or with the same sex, whichever suits you. Gay activists, calm down please), and forget every single word in the dictionary in the process. Words are not that important when you hit on some blonde bimbo, since the odds are that she doesn't know any more words than you can remember anyway, so you'd be on the same level, but more often than not, knowing what to say is they key to hitting a homerun. You know what I'm saying? (Very clever reference to our topic, right there...) You need to make the girl laugh, and I think that's really all that matters at that age. A sense of humour is your arsenal's most accurate weapon, in the hunt for human flesh. If you can make a girl laugh, the deal is in the bag. ...read more.


I think every guy knows that. Sometimes, what you don't say is more important than what you say. You should just keep your mouth shut, look straight ahead, pretend as if you didn't hear her, and slyly change subjects as quickly as possible, because every word you utter, every facial expression you make, could be used against you. Dishonesty in women also manifests itself in the bedroom, whereas a man's sense of honesty truly comes out in the sack. While a man will express his discontentment without any sort of hesitation, women will fake the orgasm. Case in point. Words are powerful. The people who master the art of speaking, mostly, are usually successful in whatever they do, whether it is with noble goals or not. Language is also your identity, your image. The words you use, the words you write, determine who you are, and how people will perceive you. However, words can also be blinding, and hide your true self. Taking someone to the letter of the word can also be misleading. More concretely, if you take what I've written, up until now, you could very well jump to conclusions as to what kind of person I am, or you could read between the lines and see, up to a certain degree, who I truly am. What you choose to say leaves you out in open and you will be judged accordingly. Words make you powerless. ...read more.
