    Anti-hero is a poorly constructed term. An anti-hero is no where close to the opposite of a hero, it is merely someone with heroic ends that lacks heroic aesthetics and ethos.

    I find myself doing this a lot, but I realize there's no reason to. Basically, the only thing it comes across as is an insult. The only reason you'd need to explain something obvious is if the person you're explaining it to is exceptionally imperceptive. Of course, that doesn't accomplish anything.


    purpose of 'obviously' is not to explain stuff; its to direct the listener's train of thought in a particular direction.

    South can loosely interpreted to mean 'down' as in when you hear the figure of speech...'that project as gone south'...south is taken to mean 'to the wolves' or 'to shits'

    its almost a bad omen

    I'm not sure if I will say more on this.



    aesthetics is based on quality not quantity. when you place EVERYTHING side by side, how the hell is that supposed to look good

    they look similar because you have synesthesia

    Well, I suppose in some sense they are both material. But it must be said that matter and anti-matter have inverse compositions and do negate each other. I can see considerably more reason in calling that anti-matter than calling unromantic heroes anti-heros.

    If one were to interpret the word in a more literal way, one would conclude that anti-hero sounds like another way of saying villain.

    I do not understand the term "single strand DNA"! Is that not RNA? I've tried looking up some explanation as to what single strand DNA might be as oppose to RNA, but while I've found information on where it comes up, I've found no explanation as to why it's not just called RNA.
