Right:
  • Homeopathy is a fraud
  • Vaccines are actually safe
  • Breastfeeding in public is OK
  • Foreign criminals should be deported
  • Anthropogenic climate change is a huge con
  • Ouchboy is a dork (though this isn't actually the basis for an argument, but is indeed FACT)
Pick one and continue

Circumcision. 100% success rate.
And I have an Ikea Billy bookcase for sale for just 5% more than the current retail price (it's fully assembled, after all). Must be collected before 5pm today. I have no change but feel free to bring only a 200chf note. No time wasters please.

And Burkas are anti-establishment garments! If all us women wore long black cloaks what would that do to all the boutiques and fashion designers?

Or should that be a thread of its own?

Re: Why doesn't anyone argue anymore on EF?

Can I get unemployment benefits between the time I quit my present job and start my new job in the US? Are there any other benefits I can get? I will be unemployed after all. Free plane tickets would be great! I don't want to call and ask because that would be awkward.

I would love your bookcase, but I make only 250,000 CHF a year and can't figure out if that is enough on which to live. If someone could help me answer that question, we might be able to strike a deal.

If perchance I am able to make the purchase (I will decide 15 minutes prior to our designated meeting time and will require you to guess as to whether I will be there or not), I will need your help getting to the train station with said bookcase, since I do not have a car yet (my Cadillac Escalade is currently being shipped from the US). I plan to place the bookcase on the seat next to me on the train. I will not be purchasing a ticket for either myself or the bookcase, because I think it is cheaper overall to take a risk on getting fined rather than purchasing tickets.

Re: Why doesn't anyone argue anymore on EF?

Can I live on 300 000 euros per year in Zurich with a family with two kids? My health insurance, dentist, bills and car will be paid.

Can we expect being able to live normally without big extravaganza expenses?

Or a North African asylum seeker? If so, then you could eke by with a bit of shop-lifting in Migros, and by not using pay public toilets and utilising the free ones in police stations.

Re: Why doesn't anyone argue anymore on EF?

I think we have all made friends now, and all agree I am 100% correct on every subject matter and every point and every debate past present and future, for all time, end of story.

Isn't that right Nil?

people have basically given up having reasoned arguments on here for several reasons
The Great Schism of 2011, which gave rise to the Engrish Tawlkers didn't help any. Many of the chatty types formed their own church at a different IP address.

Re: Why doesn't anyone argue anymore on EF?

Admit it, all you westernized women...you secretly envy Muslim women who wear Burkas...
  • No more agonizing about "what should I wear today?"
  • Saving an hour each morning painstakingly applying "just the right makeup" to look "fresh, but not too tawdry"
  • No more worrying about "does my eye shadow match my top?
  • No more wondering..."does this make me look fat?"
  • Enjoying the "I am soooo sexy that men must be shielded from my ooozing sexuality"
  • While secretly putting on 20 kilos..under that black shield, who will know?
  • Where in the west you are forced to use cleavage and leg as your sexual weapon, all you need is just a hint of wrist or ankle.
You know you want it.
