I had a couple guys I know that are dots on that map and I don't find it suspiciously odd;curious or any thing that might resemble funny. Pretty bad taste in my opinion.

So a better way of saying it would have been "It's strangely and/or suspiciously odd, even curious if you will, to watch your friend's dot."

To most people, funny =
Not


By the way, in my opinion, NONE of those apply to this situation. But thanks for clarifying.

*sigh*
a bad descriptive word, I'll grant that much

I'll speak slowly and in words with three syllables or less for you.

"Funny" was the descriptive word for the feeling I got when I saw the dot, funny in the sense of an uncomfortable and undefinable. Many times a word has more than one meaning, it's other meanings are often quite different. I'll excuse the implied insult because of your apparent ignorance, for which I am trying my best to assist you in a constructive manner. Click on the link and go to the bottom of the page to see examples of the way the word funny may be used, that would probably help.

Good luck buddy

Thanks for insulting me that's pretty cool. Yes I am a totally ignorant person I have no idea about words so thanks for spelling it out. You must be incredibly smart since quite a few people have pointed out the same thing that I did. No matter how you want to put it funny isn't the word. The only possible way that I can fathom that there would be a part of it that could be seen as funny is the forced laugh that you might have tried to give to cover the pain for seeing someone you love show up as a dot on a map. Other than that I view it as bad taste. I'm not insulting you. I'm just saying it's bad taste. I know a lot of guys that have been there and back and quite a few that went and didn't make it back. I watched the whole show with all the pictures on tv and at no point did I think that it could be classified as funny.

Did I seriously just see that shit. You posted a fuckin thread like this and found it FUNNY? What the hell is wrong with you. Being ex military myself and going through those fears first hand I never once found it funny and now that 3 of my best friends (guys I spent my whole life growing up with) are over there going through it each and every day this post post is not only funny it straight up PISSES ME OFF!!! I pray for their safe return every day and if (God forbid) they become a "dot" IT'S STILL NOT GONNA BE FUNNY. But hey I'll have this post sit and look at explode with dot's to cheer me up right.

You just lost some serious respect from me bud. I'm shuttin up now before I seriously go off.


God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.
