Best Cure is Prevention

Saturday, June 20, 2009

I fucking hate this phrase. Simply put, if you're looking for a cure, you've already passed the prevention phase. Doesn't matter what this is in reference to, its the sheer stupidity of the saying itself that bothers me. The best cure for (insert ailment, problem, etc) is's wrong. You know why its wrong? Because prevention cannot be a cure. By definition, you cannot cure something that isn't already infected. If you prevent it, there's nothing to cure.

Stop using this phrase.



This site is dead and has been for a long while, for multiple reasons—not the least of which is that it's of a different era (roughly 2007). You can no longer safely play around with discussing gray areas with a humorous twist. People don't read between the lines. If they want to be offended, they'll twist what you said to mean whatever they want, and you're guilty no matter what. Or, on the flip-side, instead of being too sensitive, they'll think you're somehow defending their awfully bigoted or shameful viewpoints, even if you aren't. Both extreme sides of everything are so black/white dumb that it's an impossible minefield to navigate. If anything on here doesn't age well, sorry; times have changed, and so do people, for better or worse. Get over it. (It being "everything") There is always more important shit out there going on. Out on limbs.
