If you are asked with a half-meant joke, do you count that as an insult? Or just go with the flow?
In a situation when somebody that is closed to you said something that you honestly don't wanna hear but you can see clearly that he/she is joking. Can you just go with the flow? Or end the conversation with a valid argument?
My guess is it is very hard to go wrong by not voicing an opinion. Let it ride. Forget it. What's being insulted anyway? - your sense of self? Your opinion of yourself?
That's all it is. An opinion of ourselves is just that; an idea in our head about how the world should treat us. You're going to spend a lot of time feeling hurt if you can't just do what those ducks do when another duck nearly bumps into them: wag your feathers quietly to yourself and swim away. It really does make for smoother waters.

Who agrees with this: Opinions don't really count if there are facts to prove differentlyIt drives me crazy when someone when faced with the facts, still says I have a right to my opinion.

What is the most craziest question some one as asked about your personal opinion?A friend of mine was asked about their Tattoos whether they could wash them off? That is where this question is coming from, but I'm sure others have had some crazy things asked of them as well..
