exhale You Guys Are Causing My Very First Meltdown

Recommended Posts

If I see one more person say “Britney has ticks” whilst referring to her performing style, I will lose my f**king mind.

Ticks are parasitic arachnids, meaning they attach themselves to your body and suck your blood for sustenance. They also are largely responsible for the current rapid spread of Lyme disease in the US. Britney does not have ticks; however, even if she did, we would have no awareness of the fact, as tick bites rarely exhibit symptoms, and when they do, their severity would necessitate the attention of a medical professional. Hence, were she suffering from ticks, she would be in no condition to be up on stage, pissing Exhale off.

However, Britney conceivably has tics, which are largely involuntary and habitual bodily movements and/or vocalizations; while performing, Britney arguably exhibits some relatively minor, albeit noticeable, anxiety-induced motor tics (e.g., seemingly compulsive, repetitive knee-bending neither belonging within the confines of rehearsed choreography nor improvised movement in accordance with the rhythm of the music). There is, however, no evidence of her suffering from a parasitic infestation.

So, to recap, these are ticks:

While these are potential tics:

For further clarification, these are Tic Tacs, annoyingly tiny mints primarily used for freshening one’s breath:

And this is Tic-Tac-Toe, a ludicrously simple, two-person game that children seem to enjoy:

Thank you for your time and presumed alteration in subsequent spelling.

I’ve kept my emotions contained as long as I possibly can. But it’s been five damn years. I can no longer suffer in silence, pretending to unsee all the incorrect homonym usage I’ve seen.  :wontcry:

No, but those sound good! I grew up in Finland though, and our imports are usually not the exciting, special-edition kind (e.g., I had no idea Birthday Cake Oreos existed until I came to the US for university. That’s still probably my favorite American discovery).

Well that gives a rather sinister explanation regarding her always wearing that damn black choker.

See, this is precisely why spelling is so crucial! Just imagine how disgusting Tick-Tac-Toe would be. 

ETA: Just pretend this finger is a toe, and that’s basically the game.

ETA: Since Britney has fans worldwide, I feel I should clarify that I’m not intending to insult non-native English speakers in the slightest; in fact, English is my second language as well. And anecdotally, I’ve noticed the vast majority of ESL speakers often tend to actually exhibit better (or at least comparable) spelling and grammar in contrast to native speakers, presumably due to additional attention to grammatical detail because they/we are likely self-conscious or paranoid about making mistakes. Which we all do. So, if you are just learning the language and/or haven’t quite mastered it yet, please don’t stop posting because this isn’t directed toward you. But as far as everyone else is concerned? NO EXCUSES! :lemmetellu:

Is that reaction toward the ticks, tics, or my diatribe? All answers are understandable. :uknowit:

I’m so glad it wasn’t just me. :britdrown: And yeah, I honestly start to become a bit anxious watching her perform sometimes, because her discomfort is nearly palpable and, at least personally, contagious. (Not unlike the manner in which ticks spread their misery, as they actually lie in wait and actively hunt for their next host). I don’t know why I have acquired so many tick facts, but now I’m unable to stop.

Yup, she is unable to complete a dance move without a tic. She has become obsessive with it, the tic that bothers me the most is the constant hair touching and pulling as well as the knee bending. My eyes roll out of my scalp when I see it.

Ah well this is actually a discussion on tics; you’re looking for the “Britney has tits” thread. Easy mistake.

I'm so sorry TBH I think I had to get one or two out of my small dog a few times. It always made her so tired and lethargic.
