Just been to the shops, and the cashier caught her hand and got a paper cut.
"Ow!" she goes. "Paper cut!"
The woman behind me chimes in with "Nothing worse than a paper cut!"

Pardon? There are loads of things worse:

Being poked in the eye with a sharp stick - never tried it, but that's gotta be pretty bad.
Picking up a soldering iron by the wrong end. That's worse, trust me. And it smells.
Catching your gentleman's vegetables on the crossbar of a pushbike. That's much worse!

So why do we say things that are patently untrue?

"VB is a good programming language for the real world"
"Windows 8 is wonderful!"
"Apple are a technology based company"

And worse, why do we accept them without calling other people an elephanting moron? Guesses, anyone?
