If you get these, you officially suck as a human being. They’re taking all the human out of being human, piece by piece.

Why? It’s basically a smart phone, but instead of looking down at the phone in your hands to read a text you just see it. 

I think they probably rank above the phone because at least this gives the other person the illusion of your attention. And you can check it without constantly looking away and disrupting a conversation. I’d rather everyone was equipped with these. Espeeeecially the girls on my rowing team. I swear to god they are symbiotically linked with their phones and if they don’t check them every 20 seconds, they start having heart palpitations.

Because having your link to the world on your head is one step closer to living 1984. I just don’t like it. Everyone is welcome to get one, spend as you please to keep up with everything that is new. My phone serves me just fine, and I will be punching anyone in the face that I see with one and breaking their Google Glass in 3 pieces.

Are you a five year old? “I don’t like your toys so I’m going to break them”? Following that logic, Android users would be entitled to punching iPhone owners who use Siri. Besides, people felt that way about headphones and the Walkman. Now nobody really cares.

I don’t really care. I just think it looks stupid. I obviously don’t really plan on assaulting people with electronics I don’t like….

Then why say it in the first place? Mean what you say, dude, or don’t say it at all. If you’re going to hate on something have a better reason than “I just think it looks stupid”. I thought we were going to get into a legitimate debate about the privacy issues or distraction while driving concerns, but all you’ve got is a problem with the aesthetics. Which is irrelevant, by the way, because that picture is of the Explorer edition. They’re going to look different when they actually hit the consumer market. Maybe do some research before bashing it.

I wasn’t judging the future model, I was judging the one in the photo. I don’t have to have a “good reason” according to anyone. Thinking it looks stupid is good enough for me.

That’s just what I think, it shouldn’t bug you. Just like I will lose no sleep over anyone else’s opinion of anything ever.

Regarding the comment you deleted, no, we didn’t think you actually meant to punch somebody in the face. But we responded as if you meant it because if you’re going to say something, you should actually mean it. Now you’re just going back on your words. If you’re going to be childish, stick to your guns.

And yeah, you’re allowed your own opinions, but they should be founded on sound reasoning,This is basic intro Philosophy class stuff.

A. Google Glass is a new technology.

B. Google Glass looks stupid.

C. Therefore, Google Glass is a terrible piece of technology.

That’s an unsound argument according to the basic deductive argument form. A does not affect B so C cannot be the true conclusion.

Thinking that the aesthetics of a beta product completely dismisses all of the product’s potential benefits and makes you “suck as a human being” is ridiculous and a terrible, terrible argument. I honestly wanted you to have some awesome reason for hating Glass because it’s a cool debate topic right now.

Insane people get angry about a Coke ad in which America the Beautiful is sung in different languages. Apparently you’re only allowed to be American if you speak English.

Link to the ad if you haven’t seen it.

What kills me about all this backlash of Coke’s Super Bowl ad is that these people who are upset obviously have little appreciation for language, including the English language they are so vehemently trying to defend.

America the Beautiful is, of course, a beautiful song. There’s no questioning that. Its lyrics paint a beautiful image of America, but those lyrics mean nothing to somebody who does not understand them.

"Then learn English!" people are saying. I’m not going to argue that immigrants shouldn’t try to learn English. I’ve been abroad, and I understand the value of knowing the local language. I’ve been scorned for struggling at the checkout in France, and I’ve been laughed at in Costa Rica for not being able to order food correctly. It’s mortifying to be unable to communicate properly in situations like that, and frustrating for the locals who had to deal with me and every other monolingual American visiting. But in the case of Coke’s America the Beautiful ad, just “learning English” does not solve the problem.

When I studied abroad in China, my American classmates and I had to learn one of China’s most popular love songs. The professor took us through the Chinese a few times until the class more or less had it memorized. Because this was a beginner’s Chinese course, learning the song was a boring exercise in pronunciation. The lyrics were far beyond our very limited vocabulary. However, we were then given the English translation, and suddenly we realized why it’s one of China’s favorite songs. The lyrics were beautiful, but that beauty had been lost to us at first because we did not understand the words. Without the translation, it was just a string of seemingly nonsensical syllables that happened to rhyme. I will never understand Chinese as well as a native, even if I moved there tomorrow and lived the rest of my life there. Their songs, their poetry, their literature will never hold the same amount of meaning to me as it will in my first language. From what I understand, that’s why the Bible was translated from Latin; people could actually understand and appreciate it in their native language.

The people featured in Coke’s Super Bowl ad are no different than me. They can only experience the same beauty that you and I do by singing America the Beautiful in their first language, the language that actually means something to them. English might not be as beautiful to them as it is to you or me, but my no means does that make America itself less beautiful to them. They can see the fruited plains the purple mountains’ majesty just the same as me. They might have changed the words, but they did not change the beauty of America.

These people toting the “learn English” flag really ought to go try learning a second language themselves. They obviously haven’t tried, otherwise they’d actually appreciate the value of a first language and understand why the ad is so beautiful itself. If they’re singing the song in something other than English, that means that they recognize the beauty of America and want to honor it the best way they can, despite the fact that they might not have been born here.

So I’m… The Vice-President (my stepdad’s job title)

I have a Sonic Potato Chip

And my catchphrase is “Indeed”?

I’m the Consultant, I have a Sonic Cellphone, and my catchprhase is “You too!  Have a nice day!”

I’m The Engineer, I have a sonic crochet hook and my catch phrase is a salute.

I’m only doing this again because my last text was that hilarious:

I’m the Teacher, I have a Sonic Coffee Mug, and my catchphrase is, “As the Cleveland papers said once, solid outing for Colon!”

I’m the Contractor (ooooh), I have a sonic glue stick, and my catchphrase is “SOB I KNOW”

I’m the Programmer, I have a sonic mop, and my catch phrase is “So, what’re you up to today?”

I am the Snow Maker, I have a sonic cat, and my catch phrase is “I made sushi and it was disgusting. Now my stomach feels like it’s revolting against the injustice I just subjected it to.”
