Wow just wow (skeptical meta-discussion)

Post by Abdul Alhazred » Fri Feb 09, 2018 4:38 pm

"Wow just wow".

Anyone here ever heard it in real life?

Anyone here ever see it on the 'net, other than to make fun of the sort of people who allegedly say it?

Just asking questions. :propeller:

I have probably said it myself a time or two. Usually when something is shocking and I don't have time to come up with a less cliche reaction

I use it all the time. Particularly when I am extolling the virtues of my products to an unsuspecting public.

"Normal" is a social construct.

Golly. I started using this too. I think it accentuates my boyish good looks and charm.

Really.

Only on the 'net making fun of SJWs.

Maybe it's a regional thing?

Well, I have nothing to say to that except to place my hands on my hips, look slightly downward about 6 feet in front of me and slowly shake my head from side to side.

Must be, because I don't even think of it as an SJW thing, just a cliche.

Well, we already knew you were, but this might be a specific manifestation of that.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Find anyone that says "perhaps" a lot, and I'll show you someone who watched too much Star Trek: TNG.

I am one of them.

Chani has told me that I am definitely my mother's son because of my overuse of "And such" or worse, "And suchlike". Apparently, she overuses it a lot and so do I.
