|1.||take the red pill|
From the first Matrix movie. Taking the red pill opens the soon-to-be Neo's eyes to the fantasy that he had been living in. Morpheus says to Neo "You have to understand that many people are not ready to be unplugged, and many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it."
Contrast with taking the blue pill. If Neo would have taken the blue pill, he would have stayed within the Matrix and been blind to reality.
Morpheus asks pre-Neo Keanu to take the red pill. As Neo reaches for the red pill Morpheus warns Neo "Remember, all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more."
Long-term meth users have a drug-induced psychosis that leads them to believe they are fine, drop-dead gorgeous, the best looking person around while in fact they look exceedingly tore back, sucked up, roadmapped, shipwrecked, and butterfaced.
Their many bleeding scabs are only surpassed by their ten years out of date hairstyles and clothes. Women look in the meth mirror and spend hours doing their make up thinking that they look like a star. The meth mirror is a delusion, a state of mind.
Tweaker: "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest one of all?" (Preens, showing decaying teeth).
Everytime Joce looked in the meth mirror, she thought she was a fine mother-fucker when in fact she looked like a lab-experiment squirrel.
Wearing your "love goggles" is a mental state a person enters when they are so deeply and hopelessly in love that they are convinced thier partner is nearly perfect. They may comment on how wonderful thier partner's body is, or how handsome or pretty they are, when in reality, they aren't. It's similar to wearing "beer goggles", where all women look beautiful after you've had a few, but without the alcohol; "love goggles" is a similar effect that is based on emotion.
"Hey baby, you have such a hot body, you're built like a weightlifter".
reply: "Thank you, but no I'm not. You need remove your "love goggles" and return to reality.
True love is when two people, will do anything to be with each other, nothing will get in their way. They show it to everyone and everyone knows their in love when they are out in public. A single text gets them filled with butterflies. They get weak kneed when around each other. they are the perfect match. nothing can hold them back from showing their true & deep feelings.
Jose- you are my one and only, i want you and only you, no one else matters to me. I am blind to reality when i'm around you because when i talk to you i feel like i am in a sweet dream & i never wanna wake up from it.
Ana- thats called true love, what we have really is true love. i love you.
An obscenely tall, socially awkward guy who is very cynical and hard on himself. He oftens boasts about his lack of friends and his extreme unattractiveness for girls. He is very depressing and his loud voice makes him frequently annoying. However, he is actually a very sweet, kind boy that few people take the time to get to know. He is pessimistic, but if he weren't so blind to reality, he might see that there are people who genuinely care about him
Man, I always feel so depressed after talking to Petro
|6.||University of Waterloo|
A horribly overrated, poorly located, atrociously designed school. It's only strength lies in it's engineering prowess, specifically the fields of electrical and computer engineering. Any student who attends this university for any reason other than engineering is blind to the fact that they are utterly wasting their time and money.
Waterloo kids constantly remind anyone who will listen that the school enjoys a healthy relationship with microsoft as a "secret recruiting ground" because that ancient fact is essentially it's only claim to fame.
Students of the school also enjoy making reference to a horribly overdrawn exaggeration in that the school is "The MIT of the North", possibly because they are really stupid enough to believe so, or because they have been shut off from the outside world because of the school's horrendously unfavourable location.
In reality, among Canadian universities, the school sits comfortably in the middle of the pack.
friend 1: So, I'm going to U of T next year. What about you?
friend 2: I was accepted at Waterloo for math, so I'm definitely going there. It's a Canadian Ivy!
friend 1: Sometimes I can't believe we're even friends.
A wannabe football-expert who's blind when it comes to reality and too fanatic to accept the truth.
We all know Portugal wouldn't deserve to become champion (go see the final game) but go watch the slo-mo of the english goal: Hey, did I see a goaltender being attacked in "the 5"??
