Extravagant Weddings

I was reading a book recently, and at the end, they gave you sort of an epilogue with the young girl now grown and about to marry. Her wedding gown was described as having a ten-foot train.
Now, some people read about a ten-foot train and think, "Oh, that's so cool." I read it and think, "Why? It drags over the ground, gets dirty, can be tripped on or get caught on stuff, and it's really unnecessary."

Society seems to have the mindset that when you get married, you have to go all out and buy extravagant, overdone, overpriced stuff. A wedding ceremony is all about going broke and spending the first twenty years of your marriage paying off the debt. I bet half the reason wedding stuff is so expensive is the evils of companies. They hype it up (aka hike up the prices) to be this super-awesome thing you MAJORLY splurge on. It's like how designer labels are more pricey because you're paying for a name brand.

Reality of Shaving

Every commercial for razors is a lie. The adverts depict a beautiful, smiling woman effortlessly sliding a razor over their perfect, smooth legs. They claim shaving is effortless with their product, that there's no irritation and you get a perfect shave every time within three strokes of the miracle blades.
The reality, however, is much different. If they wanted an accurate depiction of shaving, they should show uneven Kevlar hair, and a woman running the razor over it four thousand times with limited success. Her frustration grows, her skin begs for mercy. Towards the end, she's screaming in agony and her tortured flesh is irritated beyond belief. The perfect model then throws the razor out a window and vows never to shave again.
Note the aftermath, in which the skin may be sensitive for days after this horror. Oh, and the victim's underarms have stubble of at least thirty different lengths, looking more like a molting chicken than the hairless pipe dream companies often falsely advertise.

Weird Words

The English language is filled with interesting or unusual words. Whether they're fun to say, or the spelling and pronunciation rules just don't match up. Then again, the English language conflicts with the rules of the English language, so who am I to bring this up?
Speaking of which, I have a theory about that. One day a bunch of linguists got together for a meeting, and said, "Hey, let's make this as confusing and nonsensical as humanly possible! We'll come up with conflicting rules, words that don't mean what they look like they mean, and an abundance of silent letters!"
Below is a compilation of some of these words.

A commonly used language has a spelling system so bad, spelling words correctly is a broadcasted competition.
