Have you ever had one of those moments where you mind starts to wander and you find yourself wondering all kinds of bizarre things? Sometimes the questions have answers, but more often they are the kinds of things that you can puzzle over for days with no real solution – or at least no consistent solution. For example…

Do Goths Go to the Beach?

I don’t mean the casual Goths, but the really hardcore ones. You know the ones I mean – boys wearing black lipstick and dressed from head to toe in long sleeves and long pants. Girls wear floor length black skirts with thick white make-up. I swear you never see more than a few inches of skin at a time.

So, my question is, do these Goths ever shed all that black gear and shimmy into a string bikini or board shorts to expose all that pale skin to the sunlight and the world? Somehow I can’t just transplant the group of Goths I see sheltered from all sunlight in the school building onto the beach in small amounts of clothing or out on surfboards. I mean, I’m sure they swim and go to the beach, but don’t you just wonder?

Why Do We Speak to Babies Like a Baby?

Why don’t we just speak to babies like a regular person instead of doing the head wagging and squeaky high-pitched voices? Do you think the baby is just sitting there wondering what in the world is going on when we all shove our faces in front of his and start making weird faces and reciting something along the lines of, “Oh! Aren’t you cute? Do you know that? I could just gobble you right up!”

Sounds normal enough – if a bit like something your Aunt Myrtle once said to you, but I guarantee you when you see a baby, you’re first instinct will be to raise your voice a few octaves and squeal the words at him while jiggling your head around. No wonder so many babies just look confused when you first see them.

Why Does Food Taste Better When Someone Else Cooks It?

If I were to get the recipe for my favorite kind of pizza and follow every step to the letter the way the people at my favorite pizza store do, I can guarantee you the results would not taste the same. Somehow things always taste better when someone else makes them.

Now, I’m not the world’s finest cook, but even simple things like those cut and bake cookies seem to taste better if my mom or someone else makes them. Could it be my taste buds are much too primed to taste the food properly since they sampled the wares while I was slicing (and before baking?) Who knows – it’s just one of those things. The obvious solution, of course, is to just eat out all the time or get someone else to do the cooking.

Why Does a Guy Always Call After You’ve Made Other Plans?

Maybe it only happens to me, but the guy I’ve been hoping will call never calls until after I’ve filled my weekend with other plans. I leave an evening free in hopes of a possible date or even just a chance to hang out and chat online, but I always give up and fill that empty time with something else.

When my weekend is booked, the boy calls and I always feel like he thinks I’m not into him simply because I can’t make plans for the weekend when he asks. In a way, this is fine though, since my experience has shown that guys like girls who have their own lives. If he’s worth it, he’ll just have to wait for next weekend. This also works in reverse. If I want a guy to call, I simply have to plan my life without him and he’ll magically become part of it – once there is no room left.

Oh okay, I read your rant and now I know why you're upset...BUT

She's talking about clothing, not their actual personality... just like if I were to wear big red sho.es with a multi-colored curly wig people would say I was dressed like a clown. They're not saying "Oh She's a Clown! She must be stupid but slightly amusing!" they're just saying I'm dressed in the attire of a clown.

You're perfectly in bounds to say that lables are bad, because that's your opinion, but that's not what the writer was getting at.

That's the rant. You can just keep thinking I'm being dramatic, it won't bother me a bit. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, right? Right.

I would like to know why it bother's you so much, where can I find this rant? Because you didn't rant on here, you just said you wanted to...

You're more then welcome to be upset about it, and everyone else is more than welcome to think you're being dramatic...

Honestly, I think it was a stupid, and somewhat offensive question. If you wanna know *why* it bothers me just go freaking read my rant. I don't care what anyone else has to say about the subject, it won't change the fact that it bothers *me*.

Will everyone please stop attacking Jessica for asking a question about goths? Since that is apparently so very, very offensive.

Seriously, you all wouldn't be on this site if it wasn't for her, give her a freaking break.

Okay, Melodee... You need to calm down allright. I mean the first thought that crossed my mind when I read your comment was: "Okay, take your medicine and lay down". I think your right that starving children and Cancer are far more important subjects, but if you look at the top of the page it says "Girl-Doll Fashion Gossip" not "important subjects for the world". As for the labeling thing, Goths called themselves Goth before anyone else did. So really saying someone is Goth isn't bad at all, now if Jessica said cape wearing, pale faced whiney melodramtic vampires That would be labeling and stereotyping. Don't you think? So like I said before you need to calm down. Your making a big deal about nothing.

Okay, there ARE goth people and they KNOW they're goth. Labeling has nothing to do with it. We're just wondering if on some days they enjoy taking off the cloak and showing skin to go to the beach. It's not like we're saying anything bad about any other type of "group" of people, we're just wondering things which EVERYONE is allowed to do and think and write about.

There's no need for "rants" about the topic because there's nothing wrong with what she said.

WHAT. THE. FUUCK?

"Do Goths Go To The Beach?"

Seriously, stereotypical FUUCKS like you, should hang themselves.

Stop labeling people and write about starving kids in Africa, or raise awareness of Cancer or something.

-.-

I've always wondered if babies can understand each other....is it some secret language only they know about? And when they grow up they forget it while learning a none-baby language?

Also, is the universe truly infinite? I mean, we can't see nothing so how do we know when it ends?

And what about dogs? They are so smart and can learn so many tricks, know how to beg, and can manipulate your brain into giving them treats even when they don't deserve them, are they truly innocent little critters or are they extremely smart and hide the fact that they truly are smart?

Hmm....

Oh! Good article!

I was going to make a little mini rant about the first one, but it would take more than one comment to do that. So I'll just say I wasn't happy to read "Do Goths go to the Beach".

OK, here is a science lesson for you! Other people's cooking only tastes better because it is unhealthier. Sure, you get germs on food you cook, but when other people cook, your germs multiply!
