A FUN *RE-POST* from September of 2008........
I consider myself a “smart” person.
You know the type.
Seriously, it’s a problem.
My husband says - It’s a “Hulings” thing.
(my maiden name)
According to Dan - (We all think we are smarter than we really are)
And, it’s the worst when we all get together.
we all talk to each other
like we are SMARTER than we really are
in order to sound smart
in front of each other.
Dan hates it.
(Between you and me - Dan really has no idea how smart we REALLY are)
For those of you that are still reading,
Here is an example:
I WISH with all of my heart,
that I had been the one that wrote the following statement.
SERIOUSLY, I “COULD HAVE” written this.
(in fact, my brother may have written it)
'This Page Intentionally Left Blank' could be one of the oddest sentences in the English language. Found in instruction manuals around the world, it indicates that the page on which it appears has been purposely left empty of words or pictures. But once this phrase has been printed on the page, the page is no longer blank; in fact, it is intentionally not blank. Therefore, this statement is only correct when it has not yet been made. Once it has been written down, it is instantly wrong. By virtue of self-reference, the phrase is denying its own existence and contradicts itself.
Thank you to the genius that wrote down my exact thoughts.
(Thanks, Tony. I’m sure it was you…..)
