The Tentacled One
I do not know (or care about) your background. Trust you? Why? Has this worked for you in the past? Do you seriously say, in arguments, "You are ignorant" or "You are wrong" and expect the other person to suddenly go, "Wow. Why didn't I see it your way before?"HOUTS said:It wasn't a card being played. Unless you're from another county (or website for this case), most everyone knows my background. Card, huh? This is my field of expertise. I have no idea what you do for a living, however, I when I point something out such as your incoherent inserts...trust me, it's clearly wrong.
Well, you had said, "you lose this time bud." I said, "But I guess none of that matters, since I 'lose bud' by decree of the almighty HOUTS" to which you responded, "No, it's your stubborn attitude, commonly displayed..."No, I didn't.
That looks like you changed your mind.
Liberal? Where'd that come from? What's liberal about my attitude?How many times have I shouted out loud about the liberal attitude being displayed here? Well, sir, this is a good example. Who said I changed my mind? I pointed out that regardless of "right" or "wrong", that it was your attitude displayed was what brings out the "HOUTS". You can't act childish and think it'll back up your points. However, this shift of topic is what makes it so damn liberal. Going off track as usual. Stay with me puppy. And you wonder why I treat you guys like little children. Or, maybe because you truely are...
You seem to have the habit of asking a question and them answering it in the same post as though your answer must surely be the answer that the reader would give were he to respond to the question. I think I might be starting to see why Sefro finds you amusing (although really I can relate more to Istanbul at the moment).Let me insert my retort to your above quote: Time cannot be measured.
What? You don't get it? Come on now...
Aren't you clever enough to understand what I'm saying?
I mean, I know where this quote came from. And without quotation marks, I am sure you'll for sure get it.
Pfft, everyone should understand this. I mean, if I do then everyone should!
See what I mean? You sound just like that.
You should call it incoherent a few more times. The repetition will make your claims true.See my above comments. You inserted an incoherent, randomly placed, and out of context statement into an already going semi-conversation.
You might be catching on. Yes, I did say you were whining. Does this bother you, whiner?Yet, you have the balls to say I am whining?
Who said I was whining? You?
And then I cowered in fear at the presence of HOUTS! I promptly hid in a corner and regretted having been such a bad Timmy...I made a remark to your random sentence. I slapped your hand. "Bad Timmy, bad!"
Oh? When was this?You even pointed out that only ONE person got the joke.
I have it worded wrong? I'm the one that said it. I can't very well misquote myself...You said: "Also, a lack of context does not indicate incoherency"
I didn't say lack of context. You have that worded wrong.
Context does not dictate coherency.Yes-your sentence was incoherent based the context of the conversation.
Huh?In your mind it might, but it doesn't qualify.
I was not trying to be witty. I think I would know that better than you, unless you can read minds...You're obviously trying to be 'witty' with your responses, regardless if you "considered" them to be or not.
It wasn't an insult and it wasn't being used to back up any of my points. I was being completely serious. I don't find my responses witty--but yours are so stolid that they do make mine look good by contrast.Then you back up your idiocy on the very next sentence above.
Childish attempts to insult in order to prove/back up a point.
My point (which, not surprisingly, seems to have gone over your head) was that "you lose bud" is not a tactic that supports any of your contentions. Sarcasm IS used in debates because it can be powerful if applied properly. "You lose bud" serves no purpose whatsoever, unless you expect the other party to be brainwashed by your retort.Yeah, I have too. I aced debates classes at my college, but who cares. The "you lose bud" is referring to gamer language.
What, you didn't get it? I mean I got it. You should have.
(your silly logic)
What lesson? The lesson that I can't simply use quotations if HOUTS doesn't get them? I guess you're going to be frustrated then, because I'll quote whatever plays I like, whenever I like. Hey, who knows? I might even insert quotes that really don't make sense, even with context--just for you.This wasn't a debate. I was pointing out something you should have learned in your senior year of high school if not freshman college course. Sorry if you missed out on that lesson.
My sympathies go out to your misinformed students (if they exist).Your continual defensive measures are what makes this a 'debate' in your eyes. To me it's just another class session: teacher teaching the pupil.
