Amanda can be so ironic July 6, 2006

I actually want to meet this woman and have a cup of coffee with her, which will allow me to determine two things:

  1. Does she have a personality disorder as evidenced by her posts, and
  2. Can a personality disorder manifest itself over a cup of coffee.

My bet is “yes” on both of these points, but I suspect I will never find out.

That said, she actually posted something with which I agree in the main. She assaults the new American love for huge houses. Where in 1940 the average family size was 3.2 per household, the average home size was about 1200 sq. ft, meaning each family member had on average about 320 sq. ft./person. NOW, with an average famiy size of 2.6, and a house size average of 2350 sq. ft., we now have over 900 sq. ft./person, damn near a tripling.

(Note: the Hoody house has about 400 sq. ft/person).

Amanda is of course correct. But her problem (doesn’t she always have a problem?) is her framing of the argument:

The theme of July 5th appears to be Why Americans Suck. Good lord, we suck.

*sighs*. No Amanda, it is you and your fellow Screaming Moonbats/Copperheads who suck. Filled with self-loathing, you then assault all that provided you your current status. You have a great point in the housing article. Now, if we could just work on that self-loathing issue. . .

Amanda can be so ironic

In what way is that post ironic?

Amanda is of course correct. But her problem (doesn’t she always have a problem?) is her framing of the argument:

Well, considering you frame your criticisms with accusations of psychological illness, you really don’t have any business taking her to task for using the word “suck”, huh?

Addendum: the houses at this site are pretty much the opposite of the houses cited in that post. I bet that if one of them came into contact with a McMansion they would annihilate each other in a burst of gamma rays.

Are you deliberately missing the point, or are you simply obtuse?

Now I found those Tumbleweed houses fairly attractive. . .

On the contrary–my obtuseness is complex and multifaceted.

That was worth a laugh.
