Re: The plain truth about the function of DNA
There are other concepts on that page relevant to Ed.

Instead, Fremdscham (the noun) describes the almost-horror you feel when you notice that somebody is oblivious to how embarrassing they truly are. Fremdscham occurs when someone who should feel embarrassed for themselves simply is not, and you start feeling embarrassment in their place.

Personally, I'm mortified.

If they mean 'metaphorical code' they will say it.

I noticed that. Every time I encounter metaphorical language in English, hey, there it is! A big fat red METAPHOR printed right next to it!

Thank God, huh? Otherwise some folks could METAPHOR make asses of themselves.

Edited by Omnivorous, : make METAPHOR red, for Ed

Hey, buddy, if your only contribution is to INSULT, you're better off waiting to comment until you have something INTELLIGENT to say.

Then where would you be?

Besides, it's not just an insult. You totally missed the mockery.

And what about the entertainment value? You have to take that into account. Don't be so selfish.

You don't reply to serious problems pointed out in your own position, preferring rather to ridicule questions and objections you cannot handle. You've got a METAPHORone-trick, incredulity pony, and it gets tedious watching you ride around in circles.

METAPHORSo as far as I'm concerned, buddy, it's open season on boringly stupid. My restraint heretofore has been herculean...but every once in a while your empty pinata head will swing by, and I'll whack it.

Aw, go ahead. Say something smugly ignorant again.

You know you want to.
