Except that the expression is very often employed as a way to naturalize a situation and thus avoid looking at potential contributing factors and possible alternative options. In other words it is almost never immutably what it is.

You presuppose that there are alternative options and that there is more to do than to cope.  Naturalizing a situation and not looking further at the matter is precisely what the world needs much of the time.  I find the assumption that there is hope for "progress" to be perhaps the most corrosive and destructive contributions of western, modern, liberalism.

So much to disagree with in this post.

I imagine him talking constantly in really positive exclamation points spiced with meathead inspirational sayings.  And in a wave of crescendos.

"Hey Fok, this breakfast of oats and eggs really tastes TERRIBLE!"

"But it's so good for the GAINZ!  So, get 'er done and get workin OUT!"

"Gonna make another movie!  So STOKED!  Gonna play an ex-cop who is trying to make amends witH HIS SON!  REALLY UPLIFTING!  AND I GET TO KICK SOME ASS!  But really, thost stuntmen ARE AWESOME TO WORK WITH!  THANKS GUYS!"

LOL i would imagine a meathead speaking like that but his stuff is not like that. Check https://twitter.com/therock

seeking progress =/ malcontent.

No one has used the term Foodie since 2012.  Who the fuck over under 12 and over 13 uses the term "bae?"
Condolences, man. And feel better.

Yeah my biker is size 54 and I'm normally a size 50. I also wear 54 in a1923. Both just fit weird. The downside to m.a.+ is the sleeves are extra long so 54 sleeve length hurts and I wouldn't want to mess with the sleeves especially with the spiral zips.

You may be a bit bigger than me.  It's just that one jacket in that one leather.  Everyhing else, every other leather, it's a 52.  

 

Also, I have a good long reach, and the sleeve length on the 54, while long, isn't overly long. The sleeves end halfway between the base of the thumb and the palm on me, so, no need for adjustment there.

 

Maybe I should get a CCP grey scarstitch instead.  Those are pretty cool.

I dunno what twitter you are reading, but his stuff is nearly completely like that.

 

For example, this is something one of my meathead friends would say, and is one of his tweets:

Sometimes we care about the faces we make... and sometimes we're fresh out of f*cks to give.… http://instagram.com/p/yPmyBGoh35/ 

 

Or this:

Howlin' at this moon again. AM cardio starts now.. good morning.. #MoonsStillOut #LilNipplyOutHere

 

Or of course, this:

Intimidated? Nah. #ExceptAroundBrownies #AndAWoman #AndYetIDevourBoth

 

I mean, I don't mean anything negative by it.  I hang out with a lot of these guys, and it's refreshing.  There's no mincing, there is essentially zero sense of irony, and what irony there is is the obvious, meathead, kind "I had my cheat meal yesterday, and now there are brownies.  #IRONY"
