jmsstnr Posted March 15, 2005 Share Posted March 15, 2005 (edited) Something that has bothered me for the past year, or so, is the phrase "Real Time." One can find real-time innovations, real-time information, real-time stock quotes, real-time embedded solar wind critical components up to the minute out of my mind with this shit real-time. Logically is there a false time, a fake time, an existence of time that seems real, but is not? How do you feel about the quote, "Get the latest in real-time info." That is the past. How can real-time exist? Shit, light must be slower than real-time. This combination of words is so full of shit, some genius of marketing is spending their paycheck by the creation of said b&^%$*t statement ON their own time. Real-time has achieved the status, "If I ever meet the m*&^%$#@%er of this invention/statement, I'll ......." Other words in this "who was the stupid m!@#$%&*%^er" category include: ergonomics, tactical, et. al.
