I'll give you this mate: I think you've got about 20 IQ points on Shandor. Not that it's doing you a whole mess of good right now, but hey. I was a fucking moron on PD.com for my first year and a half. Now I'm only a minor nincompoop.

It's one thing to call someone an idiot; it's another to dismantle their arguments.

That is correct. I assure you that most people here are quite aware of the difference, and have made a conscientious decision to do the former.

The latter is more work and tends to have the same end result as the former. Especially if they are an idiot.

This also.
You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Who's more of an idiot? The idiot, or the idiot who argues with the idiot?

Oh, nevermind, apparently the answer is me.

I think you've got about 20 IQ points on Shandor.

I appreciate the compliment, though. I think.

Maybe I should take up trolling.

Yup.

That's exactly the kind of thing a person who can't back up their position would say.

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

He who fights with monsters must take care lest he thereby become a monster -Nietzsche

You are a fluke of the universe, and whether you can hear it of not the universe is laughing behind your back -Deteriorata

Sometimes I wish the REAL Diogenes (of Sinope) was here to make fart noises or something, anything really would be an improvement over the surplus of fugazi Diogenes currently in overststock.
