Some people just looove talking. Like your auntie Betsie who just created a FB account and floods it with posts on chemtrails, or that entitled anti-masker who believes wearing a face covering impinges on their rights. Or many other loud ones on social media who can’t miss a chance to spread some misinformation on drinking bleach to prevent COVID-19. 

But the world is the place of karma, and if there’s yin, there’s always yang. That means that if you throw some nonsense out there into the world, it may come back and hit you like a boomerang. 

To show you how it works in practice, Bored Panda compiled a mesmerizing collection from the witty subreddit called “Murdered By Words.” It’s a prominent corner of the internet entirely devoted to put-downs, comebacks, and counter-arguments.

Nice, finally someone said that and took that shitbox down a peg. Your constitution is a joke, nearly nowhere in the world there is such a high number of homicides, of school shootings. Every civilized country has healthcare but you, and everything becomes political, even science and proven facts.

I have to agree with the clapback...disabled persons often shop outside of the standard 9-5 window because it's less crowded in the stores...making it easier to move around. I work in a grocery store and many of our disabled customers shop early mornings (7-9am) or early/late evenings (7pm-closing...usually 11pm) because it's easier for them to navigate the aisles when everyone and their Aunt Matilda isn't also shopping.

I really wish they wouldn't redact the names. I would love to educate people like this who have no idea what they are talking about instead of fun of him. It is quite possible he/she hasn't been around disabled people or he/she doesn't understand how many types of disabilities there are and especially the ones that don't require a wheelchair but do require a closer than normal parking space.

Being in an argument, whether voluntarily or not, is one of the most emotionally draining situations you can get yourself into. It raises your blood pressure, and you may feel trapped by the opponent trying to prove their point no matter what.

It gets even more frustrating when the person you’re arguing with is proving a point that, in your eyes, doesn’t make any sense to begin with. Whether it’s anti-maskers, anti-vaxers, flat-earthers, or conspiracy theorists, anyone can have their own opinion, but as such, everyone can stand up for their own beliefs.

Luckily, there’re some tricks you should know to winning an argument. According to Susan Krauss Whitbourne, a professor emerita of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, you should start by knowing your facts.

“How many times have you made a claim about some piece of trivia only to realize, as soon as you’ve made that claim, that you’re completely wrong?” Such a situation doesn’t lead you anywhere and gives your opponent a straight shot to winning.

I like that. All those envious little boys (yes, they are boys, not men) who can't imagine that a woman can do more than them. Unfortunately there are still too many of these narrow-minded people. This is one of the reasons why boards of directors in companies and politics are still dominated by men, and why women get less money for equal work. That is why my daughters have to fight for self-evident things every day.

Seeing other person’s perspective may also help you in an argument. “You don’t have to agree with a foe in order to see his or her perspective,” says Susan.

“However, if you want to win an argument, you do need to be able to see the world the way your opponent does. Stepping into the mental set of those you argue with allows you to figure out what’s influencing them.”

If you figure out what’s triggering the person you’re arguing with, you can direct your focus there and showing a little empathy never hurt anybody.

And the third thing is to remember that “Becoming defensive is one of the worst ways to win an argument.” Letting your opponent see that you've dug into your position with no other alternatives may lift the argument from bad to ugly. Moreover, if you let the other person realize that you’re open-minded, even if you're pretending to be, the argument may resolve itself.

A lot of immigrants work in jobs that others don’t want to do, majority have come for a better life and will take what they can, they have to start their lives all over again and they are not picky like many of us westerners (especially the privileged). They often take the lower paying jobs like trolley collectors, taxi/uber drivers, food delivery drivers and fruit pickers etc. What a lot of people don’t seem to understand is that a lot of these immigrants are well educated but their qualifications mean nothing because of where they are from and studied so they have to do it all over again.

Maybe she isn't racist at all, but just does not agree with a lot of the messages coming from BLM. I fully agree that black lives do matter and that nobody should ever face any prejudice or discrimination or be treated differently simply because of the colour of their skin, but I do not agree with much of the politics of BLM. I support their message but not their Political Marxism.

I checked this one out and, unsurprisingly, that definition is disputed. There's also other context from elsewhere in the bible to suggest that, unsurprisingly, religious people have always been homophobes. What did Christ think? I don't know and I can't ask him - and neither can anyone else. All I can say is that he 'drank wine with the sinners' So those who were considered sinners under Judaism were people he wanted he befriend and help, my guess is he probably wasn't a homophobe..
