Lemming Suicide Plunge

Postby TerraFrost » Sun Jan 02, 2005 10:30 am

those who compare people who blindly follow others to lemmings walking off a cliff are, themselves, blindly following others, as, according to the following link, lemmings actually don't do that!:

now, i suppose it's possible that by believing the above link, i am blindly following the creator of the above website, but... the said person has made more of an effort to justify his claims than those who simply use the expression.
