Truly tolerant people are in short supply these days, it seems it is too tall an order to be able to see short people as equals in society these days. I think it is below the belt to mock dwarves for their vertical shortcomings, and looking down on them is why we can't all see eye to eye here, and why they have such a short-fuse. As a smaller person, I feel like I drew the short straw in my gene pool.

92 Is a dumb fuck. As a non-Native English speaker, the word we learned first tends to be the one we associate it with, even if it is not the word written. For example, I misread the word 'Autumn' for 'Atomic' in a book and then referred to the scene as 'Nuclear' (The original word for atomic I learned), even though you would not mention the word 'Nuclear' in a story about autumnal woods.

93. something similar happened to me. A lab I did had atomic in its title, and when I copied it, I wrote automatic instead. That damn word, atomic...

You're not supposed to give away my location! Before I know it, a rover will be on its way to my planet to study it. Jokes on you guys, I live 12 light years away, you guys haven't even discovered hyperspeed travel yet, suckazzz.

I don't understand how this got almost two hundred thumbs up. It's hardly being a 'pun demon', every bit of wordplay in that was blindingly obvious, groanworthy, and not particularly funny. What is funny is then the people posting afterwards, pleonasms adoring fans, the ones who will no doubt down vote me to oblivion, praising his amazing wordplay and puns. So, I guess I got a laugh out of this, but not at the intended part.

I gotta wonder: Is this getting thumbed-down because people get the reference and don't like it, or are they are just being pissy because they don't get the reference?

I would bet it's people not getting reference, and being pissy about it. I personally thought it was a great reference, that song popped into my head as soon as I read the FML.

I must confess to not getting the reference. However, when I miss such a blatant reference, I do not thumb up or down. I leave it to those who do get it, to decide if it's a good comment or not. :P
