    I'm getting off the internet

    Post  The Great Splendini on Mon Aug 07, 2017 11:06 am

    I don't want to argue with people.

    It takes up too much of my mental energy.

    And I can't have a conversation on here without it turning into an argument.

    I'm exhausted.

    Take care, Sciency.

    No hard feelings, but this is tiring and wasting my energy.

    Everything turns into an argument.

    This is not healthy.

    See ya.

    Okay dokay smokie.

    You realize you were the driving force behind the "debate," right?  I wasn't going for a debate.

    You kept argueing what I said, and I kept continuing to agree with myself.  That's all.

    No internet?  Are you kidding?  I'd die without the m'fkn internet.

    >> and I kept continuing to agree with myself.

    Yes, precisely. That's what you always do. Continue to agree with yourself, regardless what topic is being discussed or what issues people raise to contradict you.

    Take it a step further. Rather than just continue to agree with yourself, you should just talk to yourself.

    Yes, I am guilty of starting the debate(s).

    But I am also getting guilty of being sucked into your bullshit.

    How stupid of me to think anything positive could come out entering a debate with a guy who starts a thread about joining Christianity for 6 months and then decides to leave it because his prayers didn't help him win the lottery. I should have heeded the red flags then and there.

    I am guilty as charged for taking the bait and engaging in conversation with you.

    You live, you learn. You repeat the same mistakes multiple times. You learn the hard way.

    No, I don't mean quitting the internet entirely. I'll still check out other blogs.

    But entering into a conversation with you is like sticking my head in a vice.

    There is nothing worse than arguing with people.

    I'm done arguing with people forever and ever.

    If someone has a different opinion than me in the future, I will say "You are right!" and get the hell out of the room. Or in this case, the forum.

    You are right.

    The most magical phrase you can have in your vocabulary.

    It's win-win. You save time and energy and the other person's ego is not affected.

    You're sneaky and dishonest and childish.

    When I mentioned flat earth, you were ridiculing me.

    But obviously you knew there was at least SOME TRUTH to it because you did a podcast a few months later about it.

    But when I was on here talking about it, I was a tinfoil, right?

    And when you talk about it, people are supposed to watch your 2 hour marathon podcasts, right?

    Anyway, this shows the kind of person you are.

    You would rather waste 2 hours "agreeing with yourself" than conceding someone else's point even if you know that point has some validity.

    Flat Earth is wrong.  This was proven centuries ago.

    It's a good theory and I admit as much, and I have even started a thread to that effect.

    Still. Wrong. Though.

    You are a fucking joke.

    You are wrong again.

    But I refuse to debate with you because you go into all kinds of contortions to prove yourself right even when it means twisting shit.

    I don't need to twist anything to disprove flat earth.

    You do that well enough on your own with southern star rotation.

    Fuck you.

    It must suck to get thrown into a frothing rage every time Crosby, Stills, and Nash comes on the radio.

    Rolling Eyes



    That's a hella good song actually.
