Dumb thing you used to think?

  1. I thought emperor penguins were like 6 very tall for ages. Thank God they aren't, as it would scare me to my core.
     
  2. I used to think that swallowing gum and hair can kill you. And that cleaning out your earwax can be bad for ears. I still don't do those things.

    I used to think Porn was better than a real girlfriend* and that there was nothing wrong with masturbating regularly everyday.

    Yeah I know, what an idiot (I used to be), right? :rolleyes:



    * Have to admit, I have never met a girl FROM MY BIRTHPLACE I have wanted to go out with, whether is on day 0 nor on day 47. Guess I will need a cat :eek:

  4. I've recently learned a lot of random phrases that I've always been saying wrong...

    Mind as well...
    Medial work...
    Last stitch effort...
    For all intensive purposes...
    Spitting image...

    And I'm particularly ashamed to admit that I only JUST NOW realized it's "piqued interest" not "peaked interest." I used that phrase recently in a book in writing and the word document kept saying it was wrong and I couldn't figure out why. Lol to be fair, I did know that one at one point, but I must have forgetten.
     
  5. I thought it was peaked interest and intensive purposes.... lol

    I used to think the earth was a globe due to satellite images, its support of basic scientific concepts and other gathered physical proof, but thanks to the brilliant flatearthers here and their strange, anti-Copernicus logic, I don’t anymore ;)

    I used to think DC was trash. Thankfully the injustice comics showed me the error of my ways.

    Lol, same with me with many sayings. Perhaps the one that surprised me the most was when I learnt that the word I thought was spelt “Awnry” is actually spelt Ornery.

    Most of the internet still can't figure out the difference between there, their, and they're.

  11. Please don't fall victim to the flat earth society . What in the world could the Illuminati gain from creating the lie that the earth isn't flat? If the earth really was flat, it would have been left alone, no one would randomly wake up and say, what if we tricked people into thinking the earth is round? There is plenty of evidence to observe proving the earth is spherical. And then there is the ISS, which I'm guessing flat-earthers refuse to believe in. Don't even get me started on the logical complications for the earth having edges, and all the illogical air travel required..
     
  12. Lol nope! Piqued and "intents and purposes."

  13. Haha nope! I actually just learned this one, but it makes sense. It's "spit and image." It's actually a reference to the Bible, when God creates man out of his spit and in His image. So if you see someone who, say, greatly resembles their parents, you would say, "wow, you're the spit and image of your father!"

    Another one I learned just yesterday when I was looking stuff up about this that I'm still weirded out by is that "another thing coming" is actually supposed to be "another think coming." As in... "well if that's what you believe, then you've got another think coming!" That bugs me so much, because it's terribly grammatically incorrect. If anything, it should be "another thought coming."

    Don't forget people who say they could care less. They're saying they care even if it's only a little bit. Sometimes I correct family members on this kinda stuff to annoy them.

    It’s an inside joke and a sarcastic comment that most here will understand. I’m not an idiot.

    Chose is past tense. Choose is present tense.

    Lose and Loose are another one. I always tell people to LOSE an extra O when they don’t win/gain anything, but they don’t seem to listen.

  20. Chose sounds like Goes...
    Choose sounds like Whose

    One is past tense, one is present.

    Examples.

    You were suppose to choose either the red pill or the blue pill, but you chose the green pill.
