I was surfing a forum on the web/internet/whatever last month when I saw this statement from a guy to his gal:
Yeah, it's plain to see, baby, you're beautiful ...
When I read that, I thought WTF? Plain and beautiful are two different things: Very different.
Damn. Just another example of cliched and lazy writing from automatic thinking.
Now if he had said It's easy to see, baby, you're beautiful, it would still be a cliche. But at least it wouldn't be contradictory.
