Article 64 – Chain Letters – Why Bother?

frabz-One-does-not-simply-Get-killed-by-chain-letters-6097ba

Does this guy remind anyone else of Ned Stark from Game of Thrones?

Oh I love writing articles in this category. Why Bother? has produced some of my personal favourite posts and are a joy to write.

I haven’t written one in a while but let’s see where this goes…

Let’s get serious with this alright, it’s a serious problem.

I always wondered how the whole concept of chain letters started.

A pathetic way to get somewhat naive and perhaps gullible people into falling for this despicable act of passing on a message to avoid something ridiculous happening to themselves or even worse, to make something good happen. Continue reading

Blog 51 – Stopping half way through a sentence – Why Bother?

silence

So some (none) of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for about 2 weeks. Sure I miss the occasional weekly post… But for two darn weeks I went silent.

I went quiet quiet. not even a tweet from either @EssWhyDeeBlog or @EssWhyTech

Sure, It isn’t a huge deal. But what if there was a deeper meaning to the silence?

Just think… Continue reading

Blog 49 – Logic – Why Bother?

Easy Peasy

Easy Peasy

Logic – “Reasoning conducted or assessed according to strict principles of validity”

I get amazed at the lack of logic us humans use sometimes.

It’s just plain and simple things that people over-complicate which causes them to have little to no logic in what they do or say.

Why can’t people just think like me…? Then the whole world would be a much simpler place.

For example:

Today is the 4th of November which means it’s almost Bonfire night.

November starts with an “N”, which is the 14th letter of the alphabet. Continue reading

Blog 43 – Speaking Normally – Why Bother?

shockwm

What the actual fuck goes on here?

Certain people have this habit. The habit of whispering instead of talking.

Whaaat? Why would you even do such a thing?

As it is, We’re in a noisy environment. These people then decide to go on and actually WHISPER (or near about) as a means of communication.

As if I haven’t had a tiring day and want to just kick back. Now I have to put in all that extra brain-power to solely focus on the bullshit coming outta their collective mouths.

Blog 39 – That Fake Smile – Why Bother?

fake-smile

Whether it’s full or a half-smile, whether it’s natural or forced…

You already know which smile I’m talking about.

We do it all the time… In fact, we receive them just as often if not more. We can all recognise a fake smile when we see one.

You’re doing it right now aren’t you? Look at you, practicing and that…

I’m talking about that one when you see the cashier over at the supermarket. Continue reading

Blog 34 – Swearing in Pictures – Why Bother?

Quick note: The EssWhyDee Blog has reached 3,000 views! That’s 3K. 3 grand. That’s 10 x 300. That’s five times the population of… Oh never mind, I’m sure you get the picture. – Hold your applause, people. I know. I know.

homerswear

Don’t you think this GIF is just awesome?!

I might get a lot of stick for this post… But whatever. This isn’t aimed at any particular person so just take it with a pinch of salt.

Swearing in pictures has always baffled me… People flip the camera off, actually posing with their middle finger raised.

It’s just so… Weird.

I genuinely cannot find a logical explanation behind this phenomena, so give me a sec while I get my shit together…

Blog 25 – There, Their + They’re – Why Bother?

keep-calm-and-use-grammar-check-for-there-their-and-they-re

There, their and they’re

Seriously…?

Do I actually have to cover this topic?

It’s basic human knowledge. Some would even call it common sense.

I mean. Come on. How hard can it be?

There = A person’s possession

Their = They are

They’re = Opposite of ‘here’

Blog 23 – The Proper use of English – Why Bother?

slang-language-300x216I’ve noticed people using slang excessively on the Internet recently…

Don’t get me wrong, I like slang.

Slang is convenient.

It is totally acceptable on the Internet as well as in a normal conversation nowadays…But something about it has been bothering me…

Yes, that’s right. Surprise, surprise.

“A mini rant with a sprinkle of what the actual fuck” is the forecast for the next 30 seconds.

Yes, I made this meme. I had that much time on my hands – Syd

  1. I have decided to start a new series of blog posts (along with everything else) that basically consists of things that bother me, in a fun, bite-size format that you can spend a minute or two reading and hopefully have a little chuckle at…The series will be called “Why Bother?”
  2. Creative writing has always been something I have been generally interested in. Therefore I will be releasing two-part mini stories every so often, trying to perfect the art of creating effective cliffhangers, as a creative exercise. Hope you guys enjoy it…This series will be called “Blogisode
  3. I also have one or two other things currently up my sleeve (no, not tissues or anything like that) for this blog, so do hit that follow button if you want to read some creative mini-stories and some little ranty posts you can read at breakfast.

Peace,

Syd

Oh, and since I’m on the laptop, I’ll start things off by giving you a Why Bother? Blog as soon as I write it up!
