If they are going to give some one total body irradiation, they will have to give you a stem cell transplant in order for you to survive.
Or else say they're looking for terrorists and are irradiating you for your own good.
I don't give a [censored] if the Megacorp doesn't like that I purchased a cheap paperback [censored] copy instead of the [censored], glossybacked American copy. [censored] to be them. It's not my responsibility to bendover and kiss its [censored]..... it is not my [censored]. I have every right as a [censored] (not a [censored]) to buy the [censored] copy I can find. It's called [censored] trade.
TFTFY. At least we're not the only ones with blinders on, no?
But even for those few of us who claim to be complete skeptics, belief quietly sneaks in.
Nope. Not a bit of it. In my experience, only believers believe that everyone else must secretly be a believer. The rest of us live a fact-based life.
I think you are thinking of a complete belief in magical thinking, whereas this is talking about the "magical" type of thought that "this car does not like you to use full throttle until its warmed up", or feeling anger at a beer bottle with a top thet "doesn't want to come off". If you stop and reflect of course you know its nonsense, but I bet you sometimes have those thoughts anyway.
I've found that that kind of anthropomorphization is useful as placeholders for other, complex causations. Perhaps the car has a mechanical or design flaw that makes full throttle when it's cold problematic. Perhaps the beer bottle has a manufacturer defect making it extra-hard to open. In either case, anthropomorphizing it can be a useful placeholder for the exact cause of your difficulties.
