Has Conservapedia ruined your life? Can you not, as happened to me, hear YMCA without thinking of the list of greatest conservative songs? Is your enjoyment of the Olympics ruined by wondering if the sport you're watching is obscure and the competitors overrated? Give us your examples of CP tainting your everyday life.

Well, to reiterate for the record, definitely hearing commentators say "two meters" repeatedly during the Olympic high jump was painful. I imagine for a lot of people they won't be able to watch any current events without thinking "I wonder how Schlafly will report this". Scarlet A.pngmoral 20:33, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
All it has done is ruin the name 'Ken' for me. And Andy, Ed, and Rob. Peter This is not my first temporal anomaly 21:07, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
I used to help out on a communal allotment. Two of my co-workers were called Andy and Ken. That was... interesting. SophieWilder 21:45, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
Not exactly ruined my life but I have several broken keyboards.  Lily Inspirate me. 21:53, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
(EC) Words or word clusters permanently stained for me:
  • Godspeed
  • "growing rapidly"
  • "overrated"
  • "underarchieve" - particularly because it references an expectation, that isn't even there for Andy
  • "conservative"
  • "declared" (because it Ken's world, people don't say things, they always declare)
  • "bible-loving" (went from bad aftertaste to "I need mouthwash")
  • "god-fearing" (became synonymous with "bigot" to me)

I was watching water polo a few days ago, and they kept saying "two meters." :/ --Andy Franklinson (talk) 12:21, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

2013[edit]

I went to a pub quiz last night. One question began "in the equation E = mc2..." and I instantly thought "liberal claptrap!" SophieWilder 08:09, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Well, now I can't think of the words "conservative" or "creationist without thinking batshit crazy basket case. I know most of them are not crazy, but why do the lunatics get all the press?

How are creationists not crazy? If the thunder don't get you/Then the lightning will. 02:25, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
It's only their beliefs that are crazy. Some of them take them more seriously than others.
