This table seems pretty accurate:
seems a little outdated.

from 2017 on, it should contain the "welp, guess its part of daily life now. suck it up plebs" response.

No arguement. Just a simple, straightforward question. The fact that you clearly prefer to spin it rather than answer only serves to indicate what kind of bottom feeder you are.
I see you've raised the level of discourse, well done.

I'm not sure if I should respond with 'I know you are but what am I' or ' Nanna nanna poo poo'

Whilst increasing her twitter following and her bank balance by another few 000s. She's only getting bigger. Mainly because the outraged Left won't shut up about her.

Well I got it off Twitter and i've never read the blog but you know what they say:

"When you resort to attacking the messenger and not the message, you have lost the debate."

Wait a second.

You found something on google which supports your view so you included it as "proof", without looking further into the background.

Someone calls your "proof" into question after having looked at the source, and your response is "I didn't backtrack to the source, but it must be true (presumably because you agree with it)", and since you question my using it as "proof" I win the argument".

Wow.

Why don't you argue along the lines of "It says so in the Bible"? You could save money by not needing an internet connection.

Marton couldn't have lost a debate with you: You're not debating.

Guess it wasn't intended as a proof for anything, just a little "joke". A racist one, but EF is enamoured of them. That should go too, I guess....standards are loose here.

Ah. "Yes, I'm writing rubbish, but it's funny rubbish, so that makes it worthy."

That sort of works for Jabberwocky, but I make a distinction between nonsense and ... inspired nonsense.

You don't have to look very far on the internet to find claims that the Manchester explosion was all a hoax staged by actors. Just one of the problems of the internet

Proof? It was a joke I saw on Twitter which I found to be funny and rather on point.

I posted it on an internet forum, it wasn't something that I submitted to the local court.

Any high school kid knows that all material quoted in a paper/essay requires references and citation. Do you never read a Wiki page and check if details require citation?

Why, that old coot!?

He's Cap'n Jean Luc Picard, of the USS Enterprise, hanging his head in shame for modern humanity at the suggestion that jokes and opinions need to be referenced and cited or otherwise have no place on an internet forum..

Didn't you go to high school?

Well... for a start: read this link carefully:


Regardless of what you or I think of Theresa May, or who she did or did not ban, it in no way whatsoever follows that if she had done something differently that this would with certainty have precluded the bombing in Manchester.

It might have changed things, it might not, but that text should make anyone's mental radar perk up and respond "CONJECTURE!" or even "WILD CONJECTURE!".

But that's not what I posted is it?
You're arguing against something which I never suggested nor posted.
