    Why do people do this?

    Girls:
    I know a few people who pride themself on being a slut, Its hardly something to be proud of.
    Also girls who pride themselves on being plastic or fake, its not actually a good thing to be fake.
    Or girls being all "look at me, i'm so ditzy" no-one cares, you have a brain. USE IT.

    Boys:
    Proud of going round saying sly remarks to people.
    Groups of boys thinking there great because they have all just ganged up on one person.
    Boys who think their so perfect and everyone loves them, when in fact no one really does?


    Does anyone know any people like this, or just generally cant stand them like me, or does pride themself on being something rather silly!

    :no:

    I pride myself on being northern, but this is because I go to uni with a load of southerners. In my head this seems a very reasonable thing to be proud of, but I probably come across as an absolute tool.

    Do you know what gets me? People who pride themselves on being so self-righteous they feel the need to publicly condemn all those who irritate them slightly, because they think their opinions are moral facts.

    Yes. That is sarcasm. And hypocrisy. Bite me.

    I think some ginger-haired people are lovely, but they're all female. With ginger males you have Ron Weasley.

    Theres nothing stupid about an opinion on something, I am not priding myself on what you are saying. I am wondering if the things that bother me, bother other people. So if you are so bothered about it, why did you even bother posting lol. :rolleyes:

    Seems perfectly reasonable to me! Of course, being from Leeds, I think I'm predisposed to insult Mancunians most of all, but it's one in the morning, and I can't really be bothered

    I pride myself for being a sabbath-born (born on Saturday). Not that I really had nothing to do with it... :rolleyes:
    Sabbath-borns, in Greece, are considered to be very lucky persons -it's been said that our wishes and our curses work.

    I like it. It makes me feel special

    No I don't, sorry.
    As far as I know, at least in Greece, those born on Saturday are considered lucky while those born on Thuesday are considered unlucky -but that is only because the 29th of May 1453 (the day the Turks entered Constantinople) was a Thuesday, and it's sort of a collective national memory that that is a bad-bad day of the week. I doubt is bad for any other nation...

    All other days are pretty plain.
    ...Although I think there is something said about Frday -the day Jesus died- but can't remember what.
    As you can tell we are very superstitious!

    I agree, for example i know a guy who is 6ft 5 or so and it seems like he feels that makes him superior to others. When i first met him i think he tried to intimidate me somewhat, now he has realised it doesn't work and the power play has ended. But yes i think he prides himself far too much on something that he had no control over. The ultimate example is of the racial supremacist who dropped out of school, lives on benefits and yet feels superior to whole swathes of humanity due to their skin colour. The same goes for those that have been born into wealth and feel superior to those who are poor or even just less wealthy.
