Oh, now you're going from "can't reason above grade school level" to outright kindergarten sandbox, projecting and making shit up, awww ^^

Don't feel bad though, the world is full of dumb fucks who use superficial markers to delude themselves into believing they can reason themselves out of wet paperbag, you'll blend right in.

That's just a bunch of strawmen and a made up assertion: "people complaining about the decline of society are contributing more to it than anyone else" - oh yeah? Nietzsche, Erich Fromm and *thousands* others will still be read, and still have something worthwhile to say, when the last mirror of xkcd has blinked out of existence. Pah.

And you know, when I thought of "career" and "frozen eggs" I had to think of that particular bit in the opening of Idiocracy. If you think I was trying to claim freezing eggs will lead to the decline of human intelligence you're an idiot. I don't even think IQ necessarily has anything to do with how wise or how idiotic people are. It's like a really fast car, you can still drive in circles with it. Just really fast, yay.

You steal the docs, you're responsible for their provenance afterward. Not a hard concept.

So if you're born as a Jew in Nazi Germany, you are responsible for not registering for deportation and whatever consequences that entails? It's not a hard concept indeed, it's just that what subscribing to this logic makes you is what's the trouble here.

Further: we all agree he handed them over to the Russians, right?

What are you even talking about?! He handed all he had in bulk over to two newspapers.

I see I'm arguing with subhumans.

Debate over -- I win.

You're a dumb, cowardly fuck, is all.

People run in circles to try and have god added to the picture

Are you talking to me? Pah. I call out broken logic when I see it, is all. And I also note the hybris of pretending to have any sort of "full picture" that makes any sense at all, defending it from introducing elements which don't. That's some pretty dumb shit, and the strawmen about religious people are expected compensation.

because in the next heartbeat they then want to tell us all about exactly what he's like

Right now, you are telling me how I am like -- take your idiotic projections to someone else, you will have no fun here.

Finding something is exciting when it's how you find out something exists -- if it just confirms what you more or less knew anyway, it's not really.

But oh well, I don't really have time to discuss: somewhere out there, there are two stones with a bigger stone in the middle that has exactly the same mass as the two other stones. The three stones form a 17Â angle. I know it doesn't sound like much when I say it, but just wait until I found that formation.
