I also think that a general decrease in peoples' attention spans has a lot to do with this.
Because communication is so fast and efficient, people have gotten used to getting quick and easy answers to every question. When they run into somebody who does not give them a three-second answer they instantly think, "Bullshit!"
Not every question can be answered in two sentences, especially today when the world seems so much more complex. Anybody who does not answer in only two sentences is automatically branded a bullshitter even if they are telling the truth.
I agree that it seems like there is a flood of people spouting bullshit answers to questions but I also think that a lot more good answers are branded as bullshit because many people have the attention span of a goldfish.
In fact he was so offended he swam over to Fin, who is a shark and discussed whether he had some sort of recourse he could pursue. Fin had some of the girls in the secretarial pool work on a legal brief and will be contacting you shortly.
Between you and me Fin must be working pro bono because I know for a fact the Gil's house is under water and he doesn't have a pot to piss in. His wife Bubbles left him last fall for a butterfly Koi and he's been pretty down, although he's been chasing a lot of strange tail lately.
Anyway, you may want to be careful who you are dissing these days because everyone has rights. And just for your information I've seen Gil suspended in one place just staring a the wall for hours, so his attention span is just fine thank you.
As I understand it, goldfish don't have the capacity for any significant attention span.
The phrase "nice castle" is what the goldfish think, over, and over, and over.
Lately, I've heard they have begun posting - "why can't we discuss scanning on APUG?":munch:
It's just a cliche. Tell Gil to lighten up. ;)
Did you know that you can actually teach goldfish to do tricks? Yes, indeed!
Looks like Gil has some catching up to do! :D
It is BS. 2 goldfish doesn't make a school.
Oh now, quit carping!
BSers when busted, always Koi ya know.
