I don’t get it.

There are a couple things I don’t understand.
For starters, why is it that parents are right, even if they aren’t? Why must I tell my mother that she’s correct when I KNOW 100% that she’s wrong? It doesn’t make any sense at all. And If I don’t understand something, I want her to explain it to me. But if she doesn’t want to talk about it anymore, I’m just supposed to move on and act like I know what she means. Why? How does that work? What the hell?
Moving on, another thing I don’t understand is why there’s such a big debate about whether XBOX 360 or PS3 is better. To me, it’s rather obvious that the 360 is, despite what everyone else says, the better option. I actually have reasons to back this up. There’s so many different applications on the 360, and a wide variety of possibilities that go along with the XBOX. For instance, Last.fm, Built-in Netflix (no need for a disc, as you do with the PS3), MSN messenger (not sure how many people still use that anyway), the ability do download television shows and movies, etc. Not to mention that Xbox’s community is way bigger than the PS3’s. Yes, I do know that PS3 has some kind of store option where you can buy… something or other. I’m not sure exactly what all you can do with it, but I know it’s there. Maybe. However, the XBox’s system is much easier to use, and much more used. Of course, the biggest argument between the two (and the only thing PS3 fanboys actually have to go off of) is the fact that you have to pay for XBL. But, honestly, it’s $60 for more than a year. It’s $6 a day, and any child with an allowance can afford that. It’s really not as big of a deal as people make it out to be. Microsoft just happens to be a bigger company than Sony. It’s like comparing Ipods to Walkmans.
So, really, Xbox > Ps3, proof provided. I’d like to see any PS3 fan’s rebuttal. I’m sure it’d be a riveting read.
Anyway, That’s really all I got for now.
