You know what phrase I love to hear people say?
"It is what it is."

Could anything be more truer?

I mean, you could walk around making statements that people might misunderstand, misinterpret, or misconstrue, like "I love lasagna", or "Toxic fumes are bad." But why?  Why not stick to what you can truly be sure of, to what is safe?

I just wish there were more phrases like that out there.  How many other things can you say that convey such pointless, opinionless declarations of nothingness?  Cuz if there is anything we can be sure of, it's that it is what it is.  It's not what it isn't, that is for sure.   There is no telling if it will be what it was, or if  it weren't what it won't be.  But what it is is what it is.  And don't let the nay sayers come back with an arguement like "Well, that depends on what the meaning of the word IS is."  Cuz that is just lame.

So keep on using it, you people who say stuff!  But just don't go so far as to start saying things like "I am what I am."  Cuz you might not be.  You might be what you eat, and can anyone really say with 100% certainty what that is?
