    You cannot expect people to guess what you really mean when you are writing. Nevertheless; the "joke" was totally insensitive and besides the point. If someone had said that in a bar to Omega's face, he would probably (and justifiable) have caved the dude's face in.
    I didn't take it as a personal insult because I'm not a *****. A lot of you guys, on the other hand..

    Please don't start in with the attention grabbing title. Unless you are three, I am not going to explain the saying about books and covers.

    Reading comprehension is your friend.

    As BKR noted and I just pointed out, YOU put yourself in the "SOME" category therefore, yes it is a direct insult to you. It doesn't negate what I said as, it is a perspective insult not a direct insult.

    But now do we understand the difference between direct insult and a general jibe? Make sure you took notes and don't forget.

    To feel humbled, not insulted.

    See above.

    Not necessarily, it would have been insulting though. The thing is, when questioned about it, the I'm in the same boat, so I don't have to be sensitive to anyone else's feelings, multiplied the insult. I insult people on accident as much as any man alive...I talk to people all day long about the music, when I'm not actually playing it. It can't be helped saying things wrong. The key, is to be fast to apologize, or restate.

    I don't see how anyone who trains could take insult to the OP. Protecting the feelings of the delusional comes slightly lower on the to-do list of most adults, than appreciating the struggles and victories of the disadvantaged.

    Whether or not you think having one ball helped Lance Armstrong do all that riding (hehe) his triumphs are all of ours. Same for everyone who rises above their supposed limitations.

    I've never understood why people react so badly to jokes about their mothers. To me its just like anything you can be rinsed for just shrug it off and come back with something funny(er).

    Out of the blue, perhaps. Personally, If I'm talking about my mother, and someone needs feels the need...it's problem time. Context is important.

    ex:
    random in the sub - "your guitar sucks"
    me - "Keep it moving"
    random in the sub - "your momma sucks too"
    me - "well I loved your last album, keep it moving"

    ex II:
    me talking to GF - "my mum's going to send us some mince pies"
    some fringe - "your mom sucks"

    It is in general a sure-fire way to get a rise out of someone.

    Is it largely an American thing? I mainly see it in American films/TV. Doesn't seem to be such an issue here in the UK. At least not in my experience.

    I mean the level offence taken, more than the insulting.
    Insulting mothers is common enough here, it just doesn't seem to carry the same weight.
