It’s a phony defensive maneuver for making the listener take an opinion better, and I’m not buying it!
I like this saying… I think it can be used in a manner that is not defensive but more as an opinion that has not been considered before. Very similar to the phrase “to be honest”, whcih I’ll say that i’m not a fan of. I also like the shorter verison of “just sayin” cause it could be used in jest and as a punch line of some sorts.
Or rather, I do nothing for technology. I have either forgotten the memory card or the cable to download my photos for weeks. I have some sort of amazing superpower to leave one necessary piece of equipment in a place I’m not. Awesome. So the world will just have to wait for the hi-jinks of Baracktoberfest.
