Grown ups commit war, theft, genocide, destruction, murder, rape, as well as a litany of other very nasty things. When was the last time you heard of a little kid going mad and chopping people's heads off and having sex with the corpses? How many pre-teens have created nerve gas and nuclear weapons? And our Godwin moment: The last time I checked, all the worst Nazis were adults. Oh, I could go on and on and on... But yeah, those common sayings don't really work with me.
"Steve, you are an asshole... you should just grow the fuck up!"
"So you want me to bayonet you to death and euthanise your dog? Crazy!"
See? It makes no sense to me and never has. Even as a kid I would look weird, and I mean weird, by this line of thinking.
Does anyone else feel this way? Or is just me and my mind-gerbils?
