i hate this crap

  • Then please explain why in a constructive manner. Don't just say what you think, you have to back it up Mark272 12:04, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

This is similar to blood brothers in which boys will intentionally cut their fingers and press the cuts together, metaphorically sharing their blood.

  • I guess you have a point, i just figured that they aren't actually sharing their blood... there just mashing cuts together. --Torourkeus 19:37, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Just kids?[edit]

The article says that "best friends" is usually only a distinction made by children. I don't think this is the case. There are lots of historical and mythical, and pop cultural instances of "best friends" who are far into adulthood. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rjdays (talkcontribs) 03:34, 17 April 2006

The article says that only children use the term; do you have sources for adults using it? --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 14:06, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, when's the last time you heard a middle-aged guy say "Aw gee, you're my best friend!" Pwned by NIRVANA2764 00:42, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Um, that's a question, to which the answer (from me, at any rate) is "never". If the claim is that the songwriter is an adult using it, that's clearly irelevant, especially in view of my previous point. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 08:09, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

I'm 23 and regularly use the term. And I know of people who are in their 50s who use it (or best mate, a colloquial equivalent). 00:06, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
