Shadowknight: I have never heard anyone use it in the context this so called comedian is complaining about in his first example. Far as the "random party" thing goes, I don't see the issue. I took it to mean unexpected, as in "I had no idea we were going to a party last night, but we did at someone's house we don't know and it was fun." I mean, the party wasn't random because someone planned it, but it was random to the speaker.I think this guy needs a critical in twisting of his knickers, or stop hanging out with girls who stepped out of a portal from 1995.
Im_Gumby: That article is so fetch, subby.
Mugato: I remember "sporadically", I don't remember "random".Poor Alicia Silverstone. Everyone else's career survived Batman and Robin. At least they cloned a replacement and now she's on Psych.[www.nndb.com image 245x308]
rocky_howard: This guy has never been in anything afterwards:
Endive Wombat: I love that years after she is no longer relevant, Stacey Dash finally decided to do a nude photo shoot.Yes, like the angry fist of God...but, would have been much nicer when she was still in her 20's.
Dr. Horrible: My daughter does this occasionally when she changes the subject. We have conversations that go something like this:Me: ...and that's why Janeway was the best starship captain ever!Her: This is really random, but what's your favorite color?Me: That is not random at all, unless you wrote down a hundred questions on separate pieces of paper and then picked that one out of a hat totally by chance. It was exactly the question you intended to ask, and thus deliberate.Me: And the answer is "plaid."
Cosmk: /and who the hell are you rock-dwelling weirdos who've never heard this? I didn't know so many farkers lived in nursing homes.
Kurmudgeon: They were cute, that's all that mattered./1995, has it been so long already?
riverwalk barfly: It's a mute point.
natazha: "Quantum leap" is the worst example. I wonder how many marketers who use it understands that it is the smallest possible change in a system.
gunga galunga: I've only ever heard the word "random" used sporadically.
I created this alt just for this thread: Dr. Horrible: My daughter does this occasionally when she changes the subject. We have conversations that go something like this:Me: ...and that's why Janeway was the best starship captain ever!Her: This is really random, but what's your favorite color?Me: That is not random at all, unless you wrote down a hundred questions on separate pieces of paper and then picked that one out of a hat totally by chance. It was exactly the question you intended to ask, and thus deliberate.Me: And the answer is "plaid."Were you expecting that question from your daughter? Did it follow the existing pattern of your conversation up to that point? No? Then it could be considered "random". But then, you probably already knew that, and just felt like being a pedantic ass, no?Don't worry though, give it a few decades and I'm sure you'll get to hear this from your daughter:"We've decided that we're moving you to the discount old-folks home. Sure, we could have put you in a nice place but we put the names of all the retirement communities in a hat and randomly picked the cheapest, shiattiest one we could find. Funny that."
Waldo Pepper: How do we know Fark has turned gayhere we have a tread about clueless and instead of farkers filling it with pictures of Stacey Dash and Alicia Silverstone, we get photos from Batman and Robin.
rocky_howard: This guy was the biggest star in the universe and became a punchline afterwards:
SomeoneDumb: I'm more upset about the misuse of literally./Literally
