What if everyone has a large vocabulary, and no one uses it because they think their friends won't understand?

Or when you argue about something, but ur wrong and either you keep arguing even though u know ur wrong, or you admit you're wrong. Either way it sucks :(.

Or you try to have an educated debate, but your friends get angry and call you a faggot or stupid.

I just seem like a mumbling idiot most of the time in public. However, when I'm the computer, I suddenly express myself, using words I never really use in reality. Anyone else like this?

That's how I was, never reading after the age of twelve because I discovered graphic novels.
But I've found my love of reading novels again.
Feels good man.

It's called "A song of Fire and Ice", unless you're reading the first book of the series, which is called "A Game of Thrones".

Girl2: 			*****		 wut do fuk dat mean? Speak English ya 			********		!   
It's because of these people that everyday I consider becoming a serial killer.

Dude, you could at least use judgment based on how they are talking to each other to respond to them in the correct way. They aren't going to respond well when you try to talk to them like a robot (seriously, your dialogue sounds automated). You could have just said "No" and avoided all of that...
User avatar #132 to #110 - allgoodnamesrgone (06/08/2012) [-]
if i responded to them in the same way that they talked to each other i would have been called a racist, or they'd of though i was making fun of them. both ways were a no go
#145 to #132 - anon (06/08/2012) [-]
I said correct way, not the same way. I just think there was a medium between formal and vernacular speech that wasn't quite there, not to mention that sometimes it's better to be more brief, like only saying "no" when they asked if you threw something at them.
User avatar #149 to #145 - allgoodnamesrgone (06/08/2012) [-]
It's rather hard to portray these two in text. I do see your point in the matter in which i addressed them being to formal, though it was simply my attempt at being polite. However, speaking from prior incidents on the bus, simply saying "no" would not have sufficed
#156 to #149 - anon (06/08/2012) [-]
True, I don't have the full context of the situation, I've had enough luck not to be around people that rude. I guess that in any case they're probably still going to talk like that, no matter what you say to them.

it eventually turned to anger after about 10 minutes and her taking out her cell phone to record me. By anger i mean that I eventually told her to "shut the **** up and turn around."
to which she replied with "Awwwww hell naw ***** , ain't no man neva gonna tell me wut to do!" (this is where i lost it and just decided to ignore all further attempts at communication)

Lists of words my friends have banned me from saying because they're to ******* stupid to understand them: edifice, visceral, explicate, polysyllabic, ambiguous, languid, lugubrious, melancholia, lovecraftian, bereaved, rapturous, antidisestablishmentarianism.

#322 to #263 - rwiddow (06/08/2012) [-]
You happen to be quite blessed in your group of friends, most in part since the majority of the vocabulary you presented on the list is only able to be correctly implemented on rare occasions. Before i told all the imbeciles to **** off, they wanted to restrict me and my vocabulary to words that had less than three syllables, three if it happened to be a simplistic and commonly used word.
#519 to #263 - anon (06/08/2012) [-]

being Scottish, I don't have that problem. We all speak in a Guffy slang
Like; "aye" "nae bother" "Mukin aboot" "naw"
I know of one person who uses a high vocabulary, and it's an angry feminist that argues with everyone. And sher loses almost every arguement because she relies on her vocabulary and big words.

I am sorry to bring this to your attention, but you have happened to use your superior communication skills to construct a horrid abomination of an attempted sentence to condemn your friends language skills.

Side note would quite rather burn all the people who use what you dubbed 'facebook language'.
User avatar #334 to #306 - savioz (06/08/2012) [-]
English is not my first language, and i didn`t say mine was so perfect, only that i don`t use the "facebook language".
User avatar #347 to #334 - rwiddow (06/08/2012) [-]
Honestly that is not a valid excuse [have a number of english as a second or third language], unless you happen to be less than 14 years of age, or just recently learned english, with the only other valid excuse i can contemplate being that you happened to be taught english in an american 'english as a second language class'.

True, yet most of the people who use that blasphemous language happen to correctly word their sentences, albeit anyone who uses that said language looks like they dieted on lead based paint chips as a toddler. Though I do not agree with your former excuse, I agree with all other aspects of your two posts.
User avatar #355 to #347 - savioz (06/08/2012) [-]
Yes, i would love for all people to learn English fully and for them to be able to use the grammar correctly, but the point of learning English at school is for you to be understood.

By the way, i must ask, is my English that bad? I thought mine was okay (though i might not be able to see or "hear" the errors myself, dos not come as natural to me as to an English speaking person)
User avatar #367 to #355 - rwiddow (06/08/2012) [-]
Well since you happen to be a kind sir, I will give you a small trick they do not tell you in most english classes. If you read the sentence out loud [later you can do it in your head after practice] and if there happens to be any bumps or it fails to flow perfectly smooth, you used the incorrect word [you are quite dead on albeit for minor incorrect wording] and replace it with the correct word.

Waning, it is late and i did a hard ass workout and I am working on drinking a 5th, so my vocabulary and my spelling may start to deteriorate.

Side note: English is my first of the three languages [eventually going to become seven or eight languages] and I think the only language even more lazy than english is mexican spanish [my second language [only can speak it though] that I learned from living by the border of mexico]
#384 to #367 - savioz (06/08/2012) [-]

wow thank you, well i have had a university grade reading level [in english] since i was 14, never had anyone call me a professional of the english language, ill take that as a huge compliment =]
