All Time Low – Time Bomb

awesome vid. I both love the song and the video! ūüôā

From the get-go I knew this was hard to hold
Like a crash the whole thing spun out of control
Oh, on a wire, we were dancing
Two kids no consequences
Pull the trigger, without thinking
There’s only one way down this road

It was like a time bomb set into motion
We knew that we were destined to explode
And if I have to pull you out of the wreckage
You know I’m never gonna let you go
We’re like a time bomb
Gonna lose it, let’s defuse it
Baby, we’re like a time bomb
But I need it
Wouldn’t have it any other way

Well there’s no way out of this
So let’s stay in
Every storm that comes,
Also comes to an end.
Oh resistance, is useless
Just two kids stupid and fearless
Like a bullet, shooting a lesson
There’s only one way down this road

It was like a time bomb set into motion
We knew that we were destined to explode
And if I have to pull you out of the wreckage
You know I’m never gonna let you go
We’re like a time bomb
Gonna lose it, let’s defuse it
Baby, we’re like a time bomb
But I need it
Wouldn’t have it any other way

Got my heart in your hands, like a time bomb ticking
It goes off, we start again
When it breaks, we fix it
Got your heart in my hands, like a time bomb ticking
We should know better,
But we won’t let go

It was like a time bomb set into motion
We knew that we were destined to explode
And if I have to pull you out of the wreckage
You know I’m never gonna let you go
Like a time bomb
Gotta lose it, let’s defuse it
Baby we’re like a time bomb
But I need it
Wouldn’t have it any other way

so.. what does ‘you’re welcome’ really mean?

I have been thinking about this for a few days already, and I am wondering what does that phrase mean, besides it being used in reply for ‘Thank you’. I mean, in the Philippines, whenever we say the Filipino equivalent for ‘Thank you”, which is “Maraming Salamat” or “Salamat“, we reply “Walang anuman“, meaning It’s nothing. However, the word welcome does not seem to mean “it’s nothing” to me, nor for anyone at all.

So I did some intense research over the internet (yes, Google did all the hard work for me), and I found out that I was not the only one who wondered what that phrase means. There were a lot of answers and reasons over the world wide web, but one that sort of made sense to me after applying some ultra higher order thinking skills!! If anyone bothers what the phrase actually means, I copy-pasted it for you!

1. (interj.) welcome
(a word of kindly greeting, as to one whose arrival gives pleasure):
Welcome, stranger!

2. (n.) welcome
a kindly greeting or reception:
to give someone a warm welcome.

3. (v.t.) welcome
to greet the arrival of (a person, guests, etc.) with pleasure or kindly courtesy.

4.  welcome
to receive or accept with pleasure:
to welcome a change.

5.  welcome
to meet, accept, or receive (an action, challenge, person, etc.) in a specified, esp. unfriendly, manner:
They welcomed him with hisses and catcalls.

6. (adj.) welcome
gladly received:
a welcome visitor.

7.  welcome
agreeable:
a welcome rest.

8.  welcome
given permission or consent:
She is welcome to try it.

9.  welcome
without obligation for the courtesy or favor received (used as a conventional response to expressions of thanks):
You’re quite welcome.

10.  welcome
wear out one’s welcome,¬†to¬†make¬†one’s¬†presence¬†undesirable, as by¬†visiting¬†too often or by misbehaving.

 

So, with the definition provided above, and with my ultra high thinking skills, I can deduce that welcome is a word that simply means that the one being thanked is acknowledging the gratitude, and that it really was not a burden on the thankee.

Bye-bye Flash!!

Bye-bye Flash

In an abrupt about-face in its mobile software strategy, Adobe will soon cease developing its Flash Player plug-in for mobile browsers.

‚ÄúHTML5 is now universally supported on major mobile devices, in some cases exclusively,‚ÄĚ Adobe VP Danny Winokur said in a clear reference to Apple‚Äôs rejection of Flash support on its dominant iOS devices: the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

“This makes HTML5 the best solution for creating and deploying content in the browser across mobile platforms.

And with that, Adobe signaled the end of the Flash era on at least the mobile web, as Steve Jobs predicted.
