Diaries, people. Pen and ink. Lock and key. Not on the Internet for everyone to see (and cringe over)!

M- Realized that if she was still getting married oct 3rd she would be in panic mode since her wedding dress she ordered back in june has not arrived yet. So thank you tim for calling off the wedding cuz I would seriously be freaking out right now! Life is awesome :o)

      I think it’s that horribly unconvincing thing some people do when their pride has been hurt, it is basically the equivalent of wearing a sign around your neck saying “don’t pity me! I am TOTALLY FINE!” while cutting yourself.

      oi!,
      A quick review of etymology and definitions for bravado makes me think that, even though in common usage it will refer to ‘fake bravery’ 99% of the time, you will probably not get arguments from academics or lexicographers if you use it to indicate the sort of bravery you get from ‘pumping yourself up’ or the sort of outward appearance you project when you ‘put on a show’ to intimidate an opponent. It doesn’t ½ 2B fake.

      But, if you’re worried about Mamason Putin you in your place…Siberia might not be the best place to hide work.

    • #2.9   infant tyrone bang

      oi!,
      Take a very basic, face-to-face situation, say a boxing match. Putting on a show to intimidate an opponent can entail making scowly faces at the other fighter before the match begins or maybe shaking the head after receiving a solid punch to tell the other fighter that the punch did not hurt much. Neither of these (especially the first) is necessarily fake. If your bit of bluster before the fight starts can intimidate an opponent, it could result in you getting hit 10-20-30 fewer times during the match (and make it more likely that you will win). Energy wisely invested to reduce bruising.

      It can work in warfare too, but with more complicated footwork due to the large number of soldiers involved.

      oi!,
      It wasn’t an argument, not on my side anyway.
      It was about as argumentative as stating the specific gravity of sodium.

      Sure, its 11 electrons/protons and 12 neutrons give it an atomic weight of 23 and a s.g. of 0.98.
      But if you could isolate or create an isomeric sample with one or more extra neutrons per atom, you might be able to get it to sink in water.

      You’re invited to the block party if you have time.

    • #2.15   oi bang

      oh I see you were not arguing.
      Let’s rewind, shall we?

      I pointed out in a playful way to mama that false bravado is kinda redundant because false part is included in bravado.
      You said,
      “you will probably not get arguments from academics….”
      [nope not a challenging language at all]

      Summing up you said that I would not get points for using” fake bravery” in place of “pumping yourself” in a convoluted language.

      Basically you challenged me for something I never said to start with. [because whatever your fact was, it was not "false bravado is not redundant", and if it was then it's of course not a fact]

      Just for you recap one more time,
      Nope you were not arguing or challenging me in anyway.
      you were just stating a fact which had nothing to do with what i said except that it included one -two words from what I said but of course in a challenging language.

      Dude, do they pay you for this shit? Why would anybody write such a useless crap?
      They certainly are not paying me, so this is the last time I read your post. [also for the sake of my sanity]

      reading this whole thread again, I can see that you were talking about the other use of bravado as in more pronounced expression of your abilities* for strategic advantage in war/match etc. It was glaringly obvious that I was talking about bravado as in pretension of bravery but you took it completely out of context as in stand alone statement and challenged me for something I never said. What the hell? I guess it’s better for everybody that I don’t read your vertigo inducing comments. Probably others love it but I can’t stand it.
      * however it’s still up for the debate that it would be fake or not, as true measure of the ability won’t be confirmed until the result of the match.

    • #2.18   infant tyrone bang

      @2.5 (8:12 PM) Isn’t bravado always suppose to be fake?
      @2.17 (1:33 AM) …I can see that you were talking about the other use of bravado…

      Somewhere in the 321 minutes between these two you seem to have either discovered or remembered that bravado is not necessarily fake. Hmmm.

      I was curious about whether Mamason’s “false bravado” was redundant.
      I found evidence to suggest that the farther back in time we go, the less redundant it is. That is (like I said at the beginning), probably 99% of people today imply falseness when they use the word bravado, but at some point (maybe 200 years ago) that figure would have been more like 50%.
      Some online dictionaries today do not refer at all to false bravery/courage but only to the swaggering/blustering outward appearance involved.
      So, my take-away from this is that although “safe haven” is redundant, “false bravado” is more clarifying than redundant.

      Sorry, I have no clue what you are referring to with the word “challenged”, so I really can’t address that.

      I will challenge your last sentence, though. I propose that what the result of the match will tend to demonstrate is not whether the show of bravery was fake or not (that’s something we would only know by knowing what was actually in the bravado-displaying fighter’s mind). I would say the result of the match will tell us is whether that display was justified.

      Sorry if this makes you vertiginous.
      If so, yeah, probably better if you scroll through in the future.
      I’m really not trying to make anyone dizzy, least not that’a'way.

    • #2.20   GhostWriter bang

      I realize that nobody is listening to/reading this thread anymore, but I think it’s important to point out a glaring error on the part of Infant Tyrone.

      The number of subatomic particles per atom is not a reliable determiner of specific gravity.

      Witness potassium, an element similar to sodium, but with a much larger number of neutrons (et al.) and yet a lower specific gravity.

      In addition, you need not create some oddball sodium atom to get it to sink in water; you need only to heat the sodium to about 90°C. When you then drop it in 90° water, sure- it’ll sputter, hiss and smoke, but it will also sink.

      Seriously; try it!

    • #2.21   infant tyrone bang

      GW,

      I remember my 1967 high school chemistry demo of sodium and water.
      I’ll take your word for the behavior on and then in 194° F. water as well as for the contrast with potassium.

      My idea was that if you could indefinitely keep adding neutrons to sodium, then eventually you would change the SG. Maybe if they were truant Catholic neutrons that would be different (cause you can’t count on them for Mass).

      If as a thought experiment that doesn’t make it for some reason, feel encouraged to school me again. Science is almost always fun + useful.

      Thanks,
      ty

      P.S. Fun and useful and, as I think Richard Feynman said, in effect,

      GW,
      1) You may need to check with ASCAP or something like it.
      I saw a punk group called Truant Catholic Neutrons in the early ’80′s.
      I may have them confused with a choir called Truant Catholic Neuters. Just a letter or two can make such a difference.
      DOB >>>>DOA a lifetime’s worth of difference

      2) Maybe a duo-show with the famous Symbionese Liberation Army hostage and JO’s SIL exchanging handslaps/claps and raps?
      Pattycake on the Patio
      or JO’s SIL delivering the lines in a Creole dialect?
      Patois on the Patio
      If I get a vote, I’m thinking franchise.

      The “Bridal Chorus,” played at almost all traditional weddings as the happy couple marches to the altar, is sung in quite a different setting in Richard Wagner’s opera Lohengrin. In this opera, the chorus starts singing as the hero, Lohengrin, accompanied by his new wife, Elsa, enters the bridal chamber, which is dominated by a very large bed. Their attendants then help them disrobe for their wedding night. Because of this sexually oriented scene, some religious sects have objected to using the “Bridal Chorus” as a wedding march.

      Sometimes it’s pince-nez, sometimes opera glasses.
      Like the physicists say, what is observed depends on the instrumentation.

    Am I the only one who wonders if Tim had something to do with the dress being “delayed”?

    Me thinks she is still thinking about the damn dress even though she doesn’t need it anymore. And she is posting it so all of her ‘friends’ and tim can see it as well. Hmmmm….. Well who dodged the bullet here tim or dress girl???? I think she has major issues and her life is not so ‘awesome’. Next post will be asking all her friends how to make homemade pipe bombs or something. =o(

      Um, yeah. “Dodged a bullet” is referring to *Tim*. That much seems clear.

      I thought it referred to her, as in she dodged one. But there isn’t enough info to go on. I agree with number 11. Agree with mama, too, I think it’s false bravado, and I don’t think it’s a smiley face. I think it’s a shocked face with a chin… but then, I’m not an expert on emoticons.

      You’re all wrong. I’ve made the study of emoticons my life’s work, and I can state definitively that the one this woman used was what we in A.E.S. call the “partially nibbled Cheerio.”

      In many cultures, a jilted bride employs the pnc as a means of signalling to other potential mates that, while her hymen may now be somewhat tattered, it is still reasonably intact.

      “Just for you! Special deal. You. Me. Sleep. Make baby. Upstairs. Now. No. You no need wait for dress. Fuck dress.”

    A few weeks after my beau called off the wedding, I realised I’d had a lucky escape and was in “life is awesome” mode, too. But then, we hadn’t set a date and I hadn’t been dress shopping!

    Seems more like an invitation to a pity party (aka begging for attention) rather than bravado. THen again, isn’t that what FB is for (according to half the self-indulgent posts I see)? ell-oh-ell and smiley face

    Previous Facebook updates:

    “It’s totally COOL that the florist lost my order. Those imported orchids would’ve clashed with my hair ANYWAY.”

    “It’s really FINE that little Sarah has chicken pox. Flower girls are SO last season. Didn’t want one after all. REALLY.”

    “One karat is more classic ANYWAY. Nobody really wants a BIG diamond.”

    It looks like Tim came to his senses.

      My first reaction was “Arrgh, he can’t be serious !”

      On further review, the refs have concluded that as long as she doesn’t take delivery of the previous wedding dress, you have a fairly solid six months to test out this relationship…. Dr. Hannibal Briggs says check it out.

      I have ample evidence that demonstrable craziness has almost no impact on a woman’s ability to elicit a marriage proposal, ty. Especially if she’s skinny and has big boobs.

      No argument, glo’. Somewhere after one or ten million anecdotes

      I’ll take the 5th (or a pint) and blame the DNA.
      Don’t want to get into nature vs. nurture.
      The first 2000 or so days of nurture are typically
      done by…Oh, Hi there, Mom.

    Sounds like someone was more in love with the wedding than with the groom.
    Also sounds like Tim figured that out just in a nick of time.

    My niece, who was living with her third child’s father while still married to the father of kid 1 and kid 2, eventually kicked guy 2 (are you following this?) to the curb. We were all fairly relieved when her Facebook status changed from “It’s complicated” to “Single.”

      Next time, dear, use the word “postponed” rather than “called off.”

      Or better yet, remember that some thoughts are best left unexpressed, especially on Facebook.

      And decide if it’s worth losing a gift just so you can ‘forget’ to invite them.

      I just talked to Tim. He says he’s getting nervous, because, to his mind, M has been fast-tracking this too much.

      He doesn’t want to cancel the wedding — just delay it so that he can be 100 percent sure that he’s doing the right thing.

      His ideal scenario would be to just live together for a a year, or so … with several different women (one at a time, of course, he’s not a mormon), and then, if M proves herself to be pick of the litter, he says he’ll agree to spend the rest of his life with her, alone.

      What’s more, he said that once the pre-nups are signed, and they are married, he vows to consider possibly keeping his cheating on her to a reasonable minimum.

      And that’s just the kind of guy Tim is.
      Go try and compliment him on what a prince he’s being.
      He’ll just tell you, “Don’t mensch-en it, it’s just how I am.”

      So much for working out after age forty. Do I have to stay at the gym 2 hours every night to get rid of that or just cut out every good tasting thing in my pantry?
