Am not.

Two computers sitting right next to each other. On one, I'm modeling sort of a cartoony Devil, to sit atop someone's shoulder and give them bad advice. On the other, I'm arguing with someone via Instant Messenger.
  • I go to save my work.
  • It asks for a filename.
  • I type "Satan-head" and press enter.
  • It still wants a filename.
  • I glance over to the chat window, and realize this is the text I've just sent.
  • The other party logs off, offended.
My question:
Is it reasonable for someone to think, in the heat of debate, that I would call them Satan-head?

I mean.. Is this even a valid insult?

*sigh*

They must think me pretty lame.

That is a rather outlandish insult. All the great misunderstandings of our time are the result of instant message typing mistakes. I'm laughing, but not at your misfortune. It's just amusing. I hope things get cleared up with Satan-head.

I blame the sleep deprivation. Mine or theirs, doesn't matter.

Nice...
Of course it's a valid insult. After all, we have poopoo-heads, dick-heads, and shit-heads. Why not Satan-heads?

"Moooommy, Jason ditched church this morning, he's being a Satan-head."

Ditching church
That would be the proper context, wouldn't it? Though, perhaps a bit mild. One might have to actually burn down the church, or simply go into convulsions during mass to earn such a title. Maybe powder yourself with chemicals which react to metal so the cross burns your flesh and in the process, melts? That'd probably do it.

I, for one, would never speak to you again.

Hmm.

For it to work, one of us would have to be convinced that supernatural forces are to blame for our personal wrongdoings. Or else, we'd have to think the other one believes this. But if both of us accept responsibility for our actions, and expect others to do the same, these words would carry no weight.

Been in Vegas Chimeing in late
It wouldn't require either of you to believe in the supernatural entity. Satan can be entirely symbolic, standing for all evil, the downfall of man and so on. Calling someone a Satan would be like calling them evil, calling them Satan head seems to almost imply that they are plotting evil. No one has to believe in the supernatural just believe in the symbolism of said entity.

Sin City. You'd be the expert, then.
Surely, this harshness of symbol is offset by immaturity of language?

Were they blessed with the ability to actually keep track of their lies?

'cause, I think that's what sets them apart.
