    From the old story.... the term basically now means you come across something (beer, a work of art, a movie, a song, an outfit, a book... anything really) and everyone tells you how great it is ....

    Everyone and I mean every just loves it.

    Then comes your turn to taste/read/watch/see it and you know what, it ain't nearly as good as the hype. Not even close, Bud.

    Now you have two choices. You can man up and say what you feel or you can do what 99% of the rest of the population does does which is to lie and go along with the herd - to fit in, not rock the boat...."hmmmm, you were right... this is soooo good. wow. I see how this got such great reviews".

    if everyone else loves it, you must be the asshole with the problem, right?


    Thus... you have movies like The English Patient, No Country for Old Men, Lost in Translation, Clerks, Avatar,

    Bands... like Dave Matthews, U2, Jimmy Buffet, Bruce Springsteen, Maroon 5, Cold Play

    etc

    etc

    etc

    Generally, if people :quote: love :quote: it, I know I probably won't so I save my money.

    I am usually a fan of LuckyP but this is not one of your better thread-efforts, IMHO....

    I was on a different website reading about how a certain beer (listed below) is the greatest fucking thing in history, so I went out and bought it and it was the worst warm vomit battery acid you could think of. Al queda forces this on its kidnapped victims.

    Yet.... when you read the views from the individual faggots across America it's 100% clear what they're doing, "everyone else love's this beer... I better say I love it too or else people will think I have poor taste"

    So annoying

    Well Hell man, I'm sorry....I didn't realize this was about beer!!!!! It sounds like something I might like, though honestly, I'm not a big fan of Dogfish Head that I've had in the past.....They can make some really high-gravity beers (high alcohol content, but the tastes have not been anywhere near my personal liking.
