    It's funny how such a simple and small word can cause so much damage.

    It can:

    1) Break the heart of the shy guy in highschool, who mustered up all his courage to ask a girl to the prom.

    2) Mess up the life of a kid with a scholarship, who just suffered an injury on the field and asked if he could ever play again.

    3) Change the path of a woman, who applied to get her PhD and was turned down.

    4) Anger the parent of a toddler who refuses to obey in a public setting.

    5) Cause sadness to a child who asks their mother if they have any food for dinner tonight.

    6) Force people to make decisions they may not have made in other circumstances.

    7) Send a young man to jail for thinking with his penis instead of his mind.

    8) Shatter the self-esteem of a girl who asks if she is pretty.


    Sometimes one just needs to stop and be serious at times, you know? Thank goodness we have, "yes" otherwise, this world might be a rough place.

    On the other hand No can be a great word:

    Did you love her more than me?

    Will you hate me if I don't?

    Do I have AIDS / cancer / etc.?

    Did I fail the course?

    and of course

    Does my bum look big in this? :rolleyes:

    The answer is not always the problem Jeff, it entirely depends on the question :smile:

    Well done, ManlyB

    I think it's a case of, "Is the cup half full or half empty??"

    Two completely different interpretations of one simple word.

    I love it.

    Thank you for your input.

    And Bravo to all the people who would not take no for an answer and turned them into a YES!

    ...and sometimes "yes" and "no" can be used simultaneously.

    Jeez people, lighten up! :tongue:

    It wasn't intended to be a sweet and silly post, x704. I was thinking about the meaning of a word, and when I came to the word no.... that is what I got.
