Thats a good explanation of irony. Although I have only ever seen Safari crash because of Flash once, well not crash, just take slightly longer to load and say point out that there was some error.
That is Chrome. It seems to crash when running flash quite often. Probably just a bug. It is still in beta, so you can't complain too much.
And being Google, it will be in beta for about three more years.
Firefox crashes all the time because of Flash. It's more unstable than Amy Winehouse.
This is also quite good irony in a screenshot:
Look at the story titles and laugh at the difference.
This must be the worst translation I've ever seen o0
I know, probably shouldn't have used Babelfish, because, you know, it sucks horribly.
This thread is funny --- funny like a black fly in your Chardonnay, a death row pardon two minutes too late, and rain on your wedding day.
That is funny but it's not irony.
It's NOT ironic!
I guess the only people in this thread who are not victims of the Canadian education system are anjinhamarota and dmr727.
Luckily, I received some of my education in Australia before it was too late!!
When I saw those, I thought "WTF?!" Those pictures are not ironic. Some people in this thread need to know what irony is. Here is a definition.
I read this thread and disagreed.
I did some morning browsing and had Safari lock up because of a Flash error. This was the first time it had ever locked up or crashed for me.
I now agree.
True. Whenever Safari crashes (not very often I admit) it is always because I am watching a flash video.
The translation is correct, "Terrific" translates to "Terrible" in French, but it isn't used as often since it connotes terror. A better word would be "Magnifique."
So I guess it is irony after all...
Still, it's not really ironic. It's somewhat funny and partly ironic but still....
Irony at it's best.
I love that song because the end result of it is brilliant irony. A song called Ironic that (incorrectly) labels unfortunate incidences as ironic but inspires people to discuss its lack of irony. Isn't it ironic, don't ya think?
Come on Americans - this is your chance to show the world you can do irony! Don't mess it up!
If I understood you correctly (and I'm not sure that I did), that's not ironic either.
Internet arguing. Fun, stupid, irritating and pointless. All at the same time.
I like the song but the misuse of the word ironic bugs me every time I hear it. I think Alanis Morissette needs to make an instrumental version, or one in a language I don't know (Canadian?) so I can listen to it without wanting to correct her and say "Rain on your wedding day is bad luck, not irony!"
But I guess "Internet agreeing" is fun and pointless too!
Alanis writes a song about a bunch of random crappy stuff and calls it ironic. A bunch of people discuss that these things are not actually ironic. I think that was Alanis's intent from the start. A song that incorrectly identifies irony leading people to point out the NON-irony, creating something of a real irony. It may not be a perfect example of it but I think it's effective enough.
I know someone who has worked with her and apparently she's a clever and playful woman and he thought there was no way it was a misunderstanding on her part. I don't know but I suppose I can buy it.
This needs to be here (Ed Byrne):
