    Maybe its just me but from what I read many carry two chips on their shoulder. One being politics and the other being religion.

    Its like mixing pure sodium with water.

    Screw politics.

    I might carry religious chips, but I'd rather carry them in a basket, so anyone who wants can enjoy. Who wants to eat chips off someone's shoulder?

    I hope they're chili lime flavored..

    I don't remember of it was the End of Days soundtrack or Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines soundtrack that introduced me to them. One of those two.
    But, regardless, they're no Steve Perry.:D

    Probably End of Days then, as I don't remember any Prodigy soundtracks being used in VTM:B
    Never cared much for vampires, but I still consider VTM:B a great classic, played it so many times that I can quote entire parts of dialogue.
    It's funny how people can react when I imitate Andrei the Tzimisce's (The one you'll encounter in that horror house when you're after the origins of that snuff tape in Hollywood) welcoming words.

    I'm getting off topic so I'll stop, lol.

    Do you really mean that? To have a chip on one's shoulder means to nurse a personal grudge or grievance about someone or something, due to a perceived slight of some kind.

    It doesn't just mean to have an opinion, or a prejudice.

    Look it up.

    "To have a chip on one's shoulder refers to the act of holding a grudge or grievance that readily provokes disputation."

    Sure. A grudge or grievance implies a perceived personal slight of some kind. There are people here who have had a bad personal experience with religion and may consequently bear a grudge. But politics? Generally that is not personal.
