Why is it that everyone like to make such general statements? They are always false! No one ever likes to read them. It's always annoying. They always go off on this long rant about something that no one EVER cares about. Everyone agrees that there is no "everyone". Can't everyone stop using this word?

I actually agree, I don't care about this particular rant either, but I just want to say that I do agree, even though I don't care.

P.S: I agree with this rant, even though I don't care.

I mean... errrr....

Everyone absolutely agrees!

Seriously though... isn't it just short for "Everyone I know"? This can be a lot of people, or not so many, depending on your sphere of influence.

Everyone is a cool first name for someone.

Imagine this: people go on asking "Hey, where is Everyone?"

"Where does Everyone live?"

"Is Everyone alright?"

:lolflag:

That'd be awesome.

But everyone doesn't say everyone, so your premise is wrong.

Everyone can see that.

Because we speak english, if we were japanese we would say something else.

Reminds me of "THOSE PEOPLE" or "MOST PEOPLE". Generic terms that actually describe no one. These terms are often used by an individual to substantiate their opinion or experience. Often these terms are misused and can impact people. Especially, if referenced without supporting data.

Good luck, changing "others" use of these words.:wink:

Everyone agrees? I don't. Well, wait a minute...maybe I do. Ok, you win, everyone agrees.

Everyone disagrees with the OP. I believe, and so does everyone else, that the OP is making a very specific generalization; that everyone, or no one, always make sense that never makes sense in a real world environment.
The people rest their case

"This is the story of four people named Everyone, Someone, Anyone, and No-one.
There was an important job to be done and Everyone was asked to do it.
Anyone could have done it, but No-one did it.
Someone got angry about that, because it was Everyone's job.
Everyone thought Anyone could do it, but No-one realized that Everyone wouldn't do it.
Consequently, it wound up that No-one told Anyone, so Everyone blamed Someone."

Lol.

My dad met someone with the first name General. Dad told the guy that he bet the guy got a lot of respect with a name like that. The guy said that yes he does. :)

And my wife knows a Chinese lady named You Du. They have fun with that one.

Human Resource training would tell you to not make grand generalizing statements by using words like "everyone".


Everyone thinks you're idea sucks

Has anyone ever met "They Say" or "I heard"?

Yes, I am as bored as the original poster.

Everyone knows its stupid to generalise, but I think its because its hard to name people individually after about 1,000 persons. :D

BUT, in the words of the old song, "Everybody loves somebody sometime".

Doesn't everyone and everybody agree with that?

Has anyone mentioned anyone?

I say nobody has mentioned anybody. But maybe everybody and somebody might say otherwise
