Charlie covering his ears
Two annoying girls moved into the apartment above me.
I'm forced to hear every dumb thing they say.
These are my letters to them.

“Oh my God, do you think that a long time ago the world used to be in black and white?” Yes, color came when you two were born.

    Charlie, do you ever feel like maybe their complete cluelessness will rub off on you? I’d be scared of that.

  7. philosoraptor says:

    maybe the world was made 5 minutes ago, with all of our memories and everything around us just made to make it seem like the world has been around

    Imagine the chaos if the world suddenly became colorful: “Oh my god, what is this!?! Ahhhhh!!!”

  13. Jen says:

    You can’t deny that our lives have become more colorful because of their existence.

    You know, without even meaning to, they’ve stumbled on a crazy linguistic black hole of mystery. You see, in ancient times, languages didn’t have anywhere close to the breadth of colour nomenclature that we so heartily take for granted. Homer’s epics are a prime example wherein he describes objects as having a particular colour of which they have absolutely no connection to. In the past, it was assumed that the eye as an organ had not evolved to the extent by which colour could be distinguished the same way we do now. The much more accepted and logical opinion however is that languages developed words for colours as their society developed a need for them. As an example, when dyes and other forms of artificial colour started to become more prevalent.

    I’m absolutely certain that this was not what they were discussing.

    Thank you for this site. It helps to recover from a knee injury.

    Whether this site is in response to truly stupid females or a quick wit and imagination, it doesn’t matter. It passes time most enjoyably but I won’t be able to read it once I get my (anticipated) kidney transplant… all that laughing will hurt too much!

  17. Awesome website……
