Since I've been gone a couple of hours do I need to read back or can I assume that this went where I thought it would?

Why does it matter? If anything, if I have 50 pieces of green paper that does nothing for me, I'd rather you take 25 of them from me.  Less clutter.
You're being intentionally obtuse.
I'm absolutely not.  You say it matters, and I'm asking you why.

I'm still waiting for you to answer this:

OK, so money is a tool I use to get "stuff."  If you offer me differing amount of money so I can get "stuff," if the amounts of money you are offering me doesn't accomplish anything for me, it's not enough to get the "stuff" I need, does the differing amounts of money matter? Does it matter if you're offering me $50 or $25?
 
If both amounts were being offered to you, would you ever take 25 instead of 50?

Pretty close.  Basically, the last two hours have been:

1)  BL's definition of "value" should be universally accepted

2)  Anybody who disagrees with him, such as members of the BBWAA, is a fucktard.

My argument is that it does not matter.  You are arguing it does.  Why?

So you're saying that, given the choice between a $25 dollar donation and a $50 donation, you'd take the $25 dollar donation?

If neither does anything for me, it doesn't matter.  


BL: "I'm going to flip a coin, do you want it to be heads or tails?"
Me: "I don't care."
BL: "Pick one!"
Me: "Why? Fine, heads."
BL: "Really, you'd choose heads? Really?"

You aren't choosing one, though.

You're saying it doesn't matter.

You're the one trying to make the argument that $25 is more valuable than $50.



 
11/15/2013 5:38 PM
I chose 25 dollars, since it was less clutter.  Really, I don't care, I'll just throw it away.  Can you please explain to me why it does matter?

You're right, it doesn't matter to you that $50 is more valuable than $25, but that doesn't change the fact that $50 is more valuable than $25.

This was never answered.    Why aren't all votes unanimous?

Or was "Because they're fucktards" the answer?

I don't know. Why doesn't the government just sell more bonds to eliminate the deficit, mr redline?
11/15/2013 6:28 PM
Because that would be stupid.

You know, like insisting everyone must be wrong because they don't agree with you, mr. ihatemyfamilysoiargueincessantlyonfriday.
11/15/2013 6:30 PM
See what I did there? I didn't redline you. Because I'm not a thin-skinned *****.

Plus, redlining you would be doing you a favor.
























Because you're stupid.
