When I see "IMHO" on the internet, I assume the words that follow are of the tone "in my high opinion."
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 7:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- oh yeah...isn't it remarkable how little Employment has to do w/ how well you actually do the task(s) - & how much is about 'Interpersonal Dynamics' ?? What would you say? 40% to 60% - ??...

My opinion is never humble
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 7:38pm texas scott:

with all due respect,and remember,i'm sayin' with all due respect,that idea ain't worth a velvet painting of a whale and a dolphin gettin' it on.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 7:38pm pacific standard simon:

If I feel moved to use the phrase "in my humble opinion" I always alter it to "in my not-so-humble opinion".

Humble is a good trait! In fact it is needed more now than ever!
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 7:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- all depends on how IMHO is used, & by whom...maybe (probably) I'm less social media-ed than the rest of yas...

Some day my premiums will come
Some day we'll meet again
And away to the CD player we'll go
To be happy forever I know

There are no humble opinions.

Isn't humble opinion an oxymoron?
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 7:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- most of what people say (Post &tc.) is Opinion.

Zacly. Meanwhile, Buffalo Springfield makes me smile real hard.

@ Listener James - Westwood NJ? I grew up in Rivervale, NJ, back in the sixties.
  Sun. 8/4/13 7:52pm Listener Schned:

Are we off-topic here? In re condescension: my fave was when, as an up-and-coming avanty-gardy actor (putting places like PS 122, The Kitchen, etc on the map, dammit), party chatters would ask "Have you been in anything WE might have seen?" Ugh- U.S. out of Manhattan!! Doh- too late...

Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 8:01pm pacific standard simon:

This bed music always makes me so happy.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 8:03pm listener james from westwood:

that is indeed a wild coincidence, esp. w/ fmu's message board being such a global forum now.
born in the bronx, then moved w/ family to river vale, then i had a 4-year stay in beantown for college, then another 4 years in hackensack in the 90s, before moving back to the pascack valley for better access to bus and train options.

"If I wanted your opinion, I would have given it to you!" Trying to remember where I heard that one.

I even remember when you were interviewing Hadda Brook by phone and Anita dropped in on her from across the hall out there in their L.A. apartment house.

w00t! fmu super-hit right here!!
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 8:11pm listener james from westwood:

ken: a very similar line to that was used in the animated film "rock and rule." could that have been it?
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 8:12pm pacific standard simon:

@Ken - the web says Samuel Goldwyn -- that sounds about right.

IMHO, an opinion is an onion with pi in it.
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 8:19pm Dave E:

If you take the pi out of it does it still make you cry!?
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 8:20pm Monica:

Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 8:20pm Dave E:

Of course, I like pie!
Avatar Sun. 8/4/13 8:21pm pacific standard simon:

It depends on how you pronounce "pi".

How else would you pronounce it?

Excuse me, I need to pi.
