ok buddy. you got it.
Literally by definition, an analogy is a comparison... this is awkward...
Might want to work on that bud
A nice feature about the English language is that while it's very easy to acquire basic competency, it's also very hard to be an expert.
I wonder how many languages are like that.
Gross...Serious Mass brings back memories, I thought I was huge lol. Whatever any of you guys do, don't be that guy. No one wants fatceps. Or just looking like a balloon in general. It's amazing what 185 lbs with 8% bf looks like, I was so shocked when I learned my friend who was competing that's where he was at and we weighed the same yet he was twice my size. I was fat
Being cut always looks bigger. 8% is tough to maintain during the off season though props to that dude if he stays there all year around. I usually go to 6% for shows then go to like 12% off season.
Yea I'm pretty sure he'll float between 12-14% off season. I don't compete or anything but just for the hell of it I got myself down to 12% from 16% and it was night and day, felt great man.
Hell ya. That will do it. Once you get to around 10% you'll see abs. 8-6% you see abs without flexing. Keep killing it.
ok, if you're interested in being educated..an analogy takes two concepts that have a similarity (i.e. amputation and hair loss both involve losing something that used to be a part of you) in order to extrapolate an explanation.
in no way did i compare the degree of suffering between hair loss and amputation, but if you want to twist words like a child, then that's your prerogative. no one here is taking you seriously though.
"he's as strong as an ox"
"omg are you comparing a human being to cattle? how pathetic lmfao!"
you come into a hair loss forum to tell us that hair loss isn't a big deal? what are you trying to accomplish, out of curiosity?
Seeing as this entire thing started with me giving my opinion on a forum and having a bunch of cry babies coming at me, don't comment unless you were here from the beginning. And saying "you're as strong as an ox" is comparing your strength to an ox. They're saying an ox is strong, they're saying you are strong. Saying "telling someone losing their hair to get over it is like telling and amputee to get over it" is comparing suffering of two implied equal parties. My point is that hair loss is not comparable to an amputees sufferage, like not even close or should not even be referenced as an example. I love how people that try to portray themselves as extremely intelligent, are actually dumb as hell. If you can't see why I said that's a terrible comparison, you might want to work on that.
nobody ever said it was. reading comprehension ain't your thing kid.
"they're saying an ox is strong, you are strong." goooood job! you comprehend similes! now to apply that concept to my analogy: i'm saying male pattern baldness people lost something, and amputees also lost something. neither misfortune should be minimized (as you are doing to baldness). just as a human's strength doesn't actually come close to approaching that of an ox, hair loss sufferers degree of misfortune doesn't approach that of amputees. do you understand? or do you want to talk yourself in circles some more?
nope. by that logic, comparing the human and the ox is comparing strength of two implied equal parties. try again kid.
also you never answered my question. what is it you're trying to accomplish with this topic?
Lmao. Dude let me break this down for I'll hold your hand like a small child. You compared losing your hair to being like having a physical disability. I said you can't compare the two. It's night and day. You responded by saying "know the difference between an analogy and a comparison" I then quickly educated your dumbass that an anaology IS a comparison by definition. I said using the ox and strength reference is justifiable because it's comparing strength, so they analogy works. Comparing a consmetic attribute to a legit physical disability (i.e. If you don't have legs you literally can't walk) can't no be compared without sounds like a complete asshat, which you do, hence the "analogy" doesn't work nor make sense. Do you understand now? Try to read that a few times so it sinks in, take all the time you need. Sometimes if you re-write it, it will sink in better, try that.
And can you please tell me WTF you're talking about asking me what I'm trying to accomplish? Hmmm I dno. I make a comment expressing my opinion not to let balding end your existence, trying to get these kids hyped a little bit so they don't crawl into a little depressed self pitty ball. After that all of my posts are direct responses to others like yourself quoting and responding. Have a seat you stupid, stupid individual.
let's take a step back then. do you or do you not think it's insensitive to tell balding people to "get over it"?
and again, my analogy starts and stops at the concept of "lost something that used to be a part of you". i did not mention the degree of physical limitations. did not mention the pain. did not mention the day to day difficulties or consequences. you went there, not me. if that's what you got from the comparison, that's on you and your failure to comprehend the point. hair loss and amputation are not comparable, but one part of them is analogous. just like with literally every other simile or metaphor in the world.
by your logic we can never use a metaphor, because it's ridiculous to compare a human being to a summers day or whatever. "a human doesn't radiate sunshine, you moron!!"
it's okay that you didn't understand something, and needed further clarification. it's okay. chill out and move on. jesus.
Untimate response form a beaten man.
ok buddy, i'm glad we've gotten that cleared up. Now instead of arguing about frivolous shit, let's get to the original point I was trying to make before you went off on your ad hominem tangent: do you or do you not think it's insensitive to tell balding people to "get over it"?
No i think it's the reality of the situation and it's time to highlight other attributes. Do you think it's counterproductive to sit and cry about something you can't control with a bunch of others crying about the same thing? Seems pretty negative to me. But again like I've said before, that's a personality trait.
Its pretty crap, I'm 18 and at Norwood 3. Balding hit pretty hard, I don't leave my house for months at a time except when I have school. To be honest I accept my predicament, this experience made me realize that we're all going to die anyways so it doesn't really matter if you live the happiest or saddest life, at the end we all end up six feet under.
well we'll see what happends
if they have to bring up your looks in an argument, they've clearly lost it already
