I think originally it wasn't just "black", but "black-<word beginning with 'a' and rhyming with 'sparse'>", referring to the fact that both pots and (non-electric) kettles have their bottoms burned over time due to sitting on the hob. In that sense it's not racist at all.
Oh yeah that makes more sense, my ma loves to burn the pots and sit talking on the phone :lol:

Also yeah, when someone implies that "incorrect" version it's saying that they at least care a little bit :mrgreen:

The irony of that statement is mind-boggling. :fou2:

I never really understood why people say “Four-eyes” to tease people who have glasses. Does it mean they see double when they look through glass or something cuz certainly we do not have 4 eyes! :lol:

They think the glasses are eyes and they're saying we have more eyes after out eyes. So offensive. :tssk:

The way people use the saying "Sharing is caring" is overrated on several levels, in my opinion. Giving things to someone that you don't need or just for the sake of providing for someone, that saying makes sense.

If you have something but don't want to share it(maybe because you are paranoid that someone would break it or do other nonsense or They already broken Something that belongs to you with no shame and still wants you to share something again), they think you are selfish all of a sudden.


Sharing may be "caring" But usually you want to take care for your possessions as well. Think about it. It crosses me to hear that saying now, actually. It is just not fun Sometimes.

It is a choice not something that you have to do.

Yeah that's true actually. You're not going to just lend someone your really expensive phone for example.

I actually kind of hate when someone says "that's not fair" only to receive the response "life isn't fair". I understand the whole bad things happen to good people and vice versa, but I hate when people just throw that expression out there because they've got "a thorn in their side".

Yeah, "life's not fair" is a poor response tbh.

I think there's a phenomenon where people pronounce "grievous" such that it rhymes with "previous". Probably due to the presence of the "i" that makes the former visually similar to the latter, which is a more common word.

I never understood why people say to children, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". I have apples in my house but that doesn't chase away any doctors or doctors' assistants like nurses.

"Peter pays for Paul and Paul pays for all". I hate that saying and the Bible for that! :pascontent:

Being in a group that is up to no Good is always the worst. You can be the best behaved person in the group and when someone is supposed to come clean with doing something wrong. Everyone including You face the Punishments. And all you were doing is keeping yourself quiet.

My life has been like that years ago when I was a young'un at my original school. It is just sickening. I have been preparing myself for the next class While Everyone else is up and about When They shouldn't be and I face a Punishment by the staff just for doing something Good because of Everyone else.

Ouch man, I know that feeling. It never feels good when you get punished for something you didn't do. :(

It happened me before because I hate leaving things unfinished or it plays on my mind. At age 10, I wouldn't stop writing after the final bell went for home time, while everyone else was already gone. The teacher put me on "step 4" where I kind of freaked out because I remembered how much trouble I was in the last time that happened, including being grounded and no computers. I think it was an overreaction, the teacher could have just asked me nicely to finish it at home.

I also know the feeling of everyone doing something they shouldn't be doing and then you get "caught" for being a part of it, while they all just laugh at you.

What is "Step 4"? Is that a codename for a particular Punishment?

But Yeah, it is just sickening that you did something Good and then you get in trouble even When you did nothing wrong. Then They have the nerve to tell us that stupid saying(hence the name of this thread).

It was a weird rule, it went like:

Step 1: Just a slight warning.
Step 2: Another warning, but this consisted of you receiving a yellow card so you'd remember.
Step 3: You were sent to a table on your own in the class so you couldn't talk to others and cause trouble/get distracted.
Step 4: You were sent to a different classroom for a certain period of time and got a note home for you bad behaviour which had to be signed by your parents.
Step 5: The same as step 4, except you went to the other class for the rest of the day and the note would say step 5 on it instead.
Step 6: A note home that said step 6, same as step 5 where you had to go to another class and you also got suspended for a day.

I find it very dramatic that They actually write down "Step X/Y" on the papers and just send them to someone as if people on Earth should know what the message implies. :boon:

That's probably the reason I was in so much trouble, my dad probably hadn't got a clue what I'd done and thought it was way worse. Then again, maybe it's because I tried to forge my mothers signature and I was 7. :lol:

I have never heard that saying (and I don't think it's from the Bible) but I'm familiar with the concept you guys are talking about. I was just thinking the other day about how the whole PE class once got a two-page "essay" to do on "The Importance of Badminton in the PE Curriculum" because a few people were acting stupid. I think the idea is that the good people who take the punishment will shun the stupid people who got them into it, so punishing the whole class is supposed to be a "social" deterrent like that. But I don't think that has ever worked, anywhere. :boon:

They actually tried that in my secondary school when someone in our class broke a window one day. They kept us in the class and decided we weren't going anywhere until the person who did it owned up.

Since nobody would "rat" on the guy, we were there for almost 2 hours and they even tried this stunt of getting each of us to write the name of who we thought done it on a piece of paper. I just wrote "I don't know", which I didn't, but that's a stupid idea as people could just write anyone's name and accuse them.

Of course the result did seem a little funny as the year head held a piece of paper and said "right, I have here the name of the student who I think is responsible". Just as she did, the culprit just stood up and owned up, saying "miss, it was me". She ripped the piece of paper to shreds, which shows that she clearly had someone else's name and was about to accuse them. :lol:

Still though, punishing the whole class wasn't working either way.

I don't really understand how the whole "Cat got your tongue?" saying really ties to a person who has nothing to say. It is one of those things that we say but don't even think of the sense in it.

What about "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me".

So what that's saying, is that someone should be ashamed of themselves because I fell for one of their tricks, but then if they fool me again, I'm the one that should be ashamed of myself? That's illogical to me in so many ways, especially since all people are different.
