  • Satan Is Real , SIR
    LikeReplyReport 13 years ago
    • That is just a statement of fact. It is not anything acholating in anyway. Another example is to say: Life is full of ups and downs", "another one is to say Death is real". Does it make death something different from what is it? No, of course. Sir is a polite word from another language to simply express some level of respect to a higher authority by age, position, etc. If "sir" means anything funny, then what about "Ma"?

    • The funniest thing is that majority do not actually have what they stand for so they fall for everything anyone presents as whatever. Tell them, today that LOL means "Satan their lord", they will swallow it. Tomorrow, tell them it means another thing, they switch to that again. They are just bunch of powders, easily blown from one side to another end with any sluggish breeze. Tell them that eating food must be with fork and knife you will see that they will get rigid to using fork to sip even water. Tell them that the correct way of eating bread and tea is holding the bread in your right hand, and the tea cup on the left hand, you will see them sticking to that even when he or she is a natural lefty, (a left-handed person). I always laugh alot of people when they get rigid about life in the name of keeping to a rule that someone, sometime, somehow felt within himself and setup to suit his situation. They lack the rationale behind the theory yet they can preach to defend it to a fault as if all their lives depend solely on it. They forget the aspect that says that "There are no hard and fast rules about life". Be reasonable, live right and you will naturally be fine. You could teach or train up children in certain ways but once you become an adult, you should be able to reason better than children and be your real self. Is it not funny to see that someone is sweating profusely and yet he is wearing a three piece suit right inside fierce hot sun? He just feels he has to keep to the rules not minding his comfort or state of health. What if you see a farmer in a very hot afternoon in the farm, holding cutlass, sweating and still in his three piece suit? Is it reasonable? You should know things that are OK or not, things that are good for you and not affecting another person negatively. It is not just in the keeping of rules that you can't explain. These types of rules are the ones I call inconsequential. They apply to you and you alone. Which ever hand you hold your bread, how does it concern or affect me? Which ever way you choose to sit down in your vehicle, what is my stress about that? Which ever arrangement or sequence you choose to follow in your morning cleaning up(after waking u from your bed, use water to wash your face first, brush your teeth, go to toilet, take your bath, dress up then eat your breakfast or you rearrange the sequence to your taste). Which ever arrangement you choose, it has no consequent negatively on your neighbors. Remember that, "Too many rules spoil the game".

  • For Indians, it is "Servant (Slave) I Remain" because that is what they want.

  • Does Sir mean this also - 'Slave I remain' ?
    LikeReplyReport 23 years ago
  • Sir DOES not mean Slave I Remain. it is derived from the term Sire and was originially used by kings and queens to address their knights and baronets. thus stated, a king our queen would not call themselves a slave to a knight or baron. cmon people. research.

  • I´ve been working on a translation about comparing universities and came across this acronym, but still trying to find out what it stands for. I found the following meaning: SERVICIO IBEROAMERICANO DE RELACIONES INTERNACIONALES) which probably stands for ´´International Relation Services´´. I just hope this is it. From context, I can say this would probably be the most appropriate.
