The Random Thought Thread, Part 6

When would people get that if there is no value produced by a service or product then it's a Ponzi scheme or something similar. Of course it works as long as people keep pumping money but in most cases something goes awry and the bubble bursts.  

It's funny if you think about it, con artists (who basically want to make a lot of money fast) make money by duping the people who want to make a lot of money fast. Ironic.

I've noticed that irony, too.

The desire to purchase something at all is really strange, when you think about it. I mean, aside from necessities.

Of course, that hasn't stopped me from purchasing random crap lol.

Just been thinking that I would love to "call out" members of ENA - by that I mean "call out" in a good way.  There are so many members who give consistent helpful, constructive advice and always respectful.  I would love to name them all.   Anyhoo,  *high five* to you all.

You can always count on a lot of people to be very greedy!

Do you ever notice how many times you sit across from someone who speaks at you?  They rattle on and on and at no time do they try to engage you in any sort of exchange.  I feel as if I could screw off my head and leave it on the table and they'd continue.

If you try to get a word in edgewise, they just highjack the conversation.  The other evening, I had to basically stand up and start putting on my coat to leave to cut them off.  They followed me to my car and kept talking until I closed the door.

Getting ready to meet my bf and his parents for breakfast.  His mom is one of those people.  It drains the life out of me.

Love the holidays, but this part of it I am glad it's over.  3 of them in one week, including my own brother.

Is it me or is there something over self validation focused about a member of the forum? Part wonder if they’re okay in thier home life, or they are just that big of a jerk. Not helpful for those seeking advice.

I'm not sure who you're referring to (maybe it's me!), but I have found that some people (not necessarily just on this forum but also on other platforms) just cannot stand being disagreed with or to have their opinions challenged. If someone expresses a different opinion they take it very personally and will rebut with a seven paragraph response reiterating their opinion. Even if someone says "OK, fine, we just disagree" they will respond AGAIN with another seven paragraphs.

I agree that it turns off the OP and makes them not want to return to their own thread. Or their own post.

At least no one on here insults others. I presume it wouldn't be allowed. I have been called some pretty hilarious names on other forums and platforms. My favorite was when someone said I was "shrill". Um, you can't hear my voice, buddy! Hysterical.
