Circumstantial Cannibalism.

Blogger is playing sick jokes on me. Apparently this is post 32, after all. But I see 30 on the side of the screen. Oh, well. As if it matters.

So apparently human flesh tastes like beef, but a little sweeter, and the texture is softer. Believe me, I wasn't curious...until I typed "what do people..." and the first search suggestion returned "what do people taste like?" I wanted to ask, "What do people want to read?" You know, so I would know what to write. But that cannibalism option came up and I wondered. Sweet beef just doesn't sound that appealing, though, so no worries. I have no wish to consume a fellow human being.

I feel like I've written about this before...didn't I tell you guys about the tofu alternative to cannibalism that I found online? I still don't know if that's a joke or not.

All hungry? How about some food for thought?

I may have touched on this before, but hey...repetition is a literary device for a reason. Here we go.

In my opinion, one of the least understanding things a person can say is "I understand." Similarly, one of the most infuriating things a person can say is, "You have no idea." Both of these little expressions basically demonstrate a lack of respect for the joys, burdens, struggles, and experiences of others.

Well, not always. You probably know what I mean, though. There are times when it's nice to say you understand...and other times when there's no way you could possibly understand, and you're wasting everyone's time by pretending you do.

The point is...if someone truly understands the situation, the last thing he/she/it will do is say so.


  1. You have no idea how much I understand!

  2. This is what this post reminded me of:
