I'm wondering how many of you actually don't judge a book by it's cover. Don't lie to me and say that you don't or give the cop out answer of "I do but I'd really like not to." It's in human nature to judge everything from first sight. We're going to do it whether we want to or not. If you saw something that resembled a piece of shit served to you at a resturant, would you eat it? If you got a bowl of soup that looked like vomit, would you eat it? And let's discuss the human factor now. If you happened across a guy that was holding a gun to the face of someone with a bullet hole in the face would you want to stop and ask if that guy just shot the person or would you run like hell? I'm guessing you're not going to have a friendly little chat with said person. Why is that? Probably because you judged him by first appearance and assumed that he shot that other person. "But Hiei, that example is too extreme." Ok then, let's make it more reasonable. You're stopped at a redlight in a big town that you've never been in before. Some guy pulls up to you and he has tattoos all up his neck, he's shaven bald, he's muscular, wearing a wifebeater, and the woman in the passanger seat has a black eye. Are you going to assume that he hit her? Or are you going to think that anything could have happened? I'll make it even more realistic. You're walking around downtown where you live. You see a person wearing all black clothes, dyed black hair, black eyeliner, and an AFI shirt. Do you assume that they're emo and go home and cut their wrists? The point I'm trying to make is that regardless of the situation, you're going to judge a book by it's cover. And for that matter, here's another example for you. You go to a book store. Book number one has a brilliant battle scene between good and evil, great imagry, and it just looks awesome. Book number to doesn't even have a picture on it's cover. It's just a dim gray book cover with only the name of the book in little print. Which book do you grab first? And would you grab that first because you judged it by its cover or would there be some deeper meaning behind why you grabbed that one? Or would it be that you randomly choose whichever book because you actively practice not judging a book by its cover? But like I was saying, if I hear someone tell me not to judge a book by its cover one more time, I'm going to go ballistic.
