First rant of 2013 :D

I’m sure I’ve touched on this before but people with a keyboard and an internet connection who start uploading their opinions, in various formats, at every opportunity, in the most part just to be controversial do my fucking head in. Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and no one should ever have their opinion taken away from them. However, when you start to think that your opinions stand above your peers, it’s time to take a step back, reevaluate and think about what you’re trying to put across. This is especially true if you are passionate about what you’re saying; people are more willing to take your opinion on board and pay more attention if they can see that you’re a reasonable and intelligent person.

On this same subject, the people who say “that’s my opinion” and refuse to change it no matter what are really just dumb fucking cunts. I’m sorry, I know that you believe that your opinion is fucking bullet proof and without flaw but when new evidence is put in front of you, making all or part of your opinion obsolete, you NEED to change it. It’s not opinion when it goes against fact, it’s just stupidity. defines opinion as ‘a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty.’ Therefore, your opinion should change as you acquire more knowledge, helping to make your belief or judgement more solid. It’s common sense, for fuck sake. You do, however, get people who refuse to listen to any other opinion on certain subjects. I believe these people to be ignorant cunts to be quite honest and can’t see how anyone with that mindset can ever become a successful or influential person.

Finally, there are the people who form an opinion on something without any prior knowledge of the subject matter. This is mostly seen in media when people choose to hate on a new movie, artist, book etc. without actually watching, listening or reading. An example of this is when you want to see a new movie, mention it to someone and they say, “Dude, don’t watch that shit!”, to which your natural response is to ask if they watched it and their response is, “No, it’s just shit.” THE FUCK!?!?!! Just… no, fuck off, you cunt! Don’t form an opinion on something before giving it a go especially if your opinion is based on the opinions of others who feel the need to share it at the top of their voice (or in big CAPS LOCK text!). Notice that I’m making the assumption that they form their opinion based on what others are saying; this is me being generous as many of them just pull the opinion out of the air to be, altogether now, CONTROVERSIAL – it’s the new black.

Anyway, the above is all just my opinion. I’m an opinionated guy and I like to talk to other opinionated people when they have the intelligence or drive to actually accrue knowledge on a particular subject. Do I think my opinion is going to matter to everyone, or anyone at all for that matter? No. I don’t write this blog to try and get hits. Fuck, if I was trying to get hits, I wouldn’t go 7 months without posting and I’d actually link people to it instead of getting 1 hit a day! No, I write this blog to… actually, I don’t have a clue why I write this blog. I think it just lets me get my thoughts in order sometimes.

I’m done for now, take care.

P.S. Part of my uni coursework this year is to produce an online portfolio, including a blog. I’m going to fail.
