    Oblivious

    Me- getting ready to go to class, doing a bit of homework, trying to read a textbook.

    You- playing a game on the internet.

    Do you really need the volume turned up that loudly? It's a serious of beeps, explosions, and a guy saying, "excellent." I'm trying to study and this house is tiny. Could you at least give me the courtesy of turning the volume down? Freakin' A...

    Grandma feels that weirdness that you feel and it makes her wish you would just speak your piece to her like you would to anyone else.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    OK, so one beep is a beep, but more than one beep is a "serious" of beeps? Like a crow and a "murder" of crows?
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Oh, I've known how oblivious I am for a long time. See my most recent thread for an example. I just wasn't aware of how oblivious other people are.

    When did Grampa enter this discussion? I thought the problem was with Gramma having the game volume up too loud. Gramps is prolly out in the yard puttering with his rose bushes or sumpin.
