if 12 year old start fighting with a 33 year old, that doesn't make the 33 year old a 12 year old. You do realize that don't you?


Does it make the 12 year old a 33 year old? That is the question.


No it doesn't because the 12 year old has already been positively identified as a 12 year old. It is the other party that has not been identified.

Because she backed it up with the fact that the school(s) she wants to attend have a joint MA degree in the field she is interested in. If that's not a good enough reason for wanting to attend a school, and being a transgender drop-out isn't a good enough reason to be an amazing ls candidate, then we are all screwed.

Not worth going through the trouble of explaining it. Logical inference fail. But you've convinced me of at least one thing.

I am starting to realize that. But I wasn't having the conversation with you to begin with, so you cut in with nothing intellectual to add... I am glad you realize that.

What it's tough to be a tough guy on the internet?

And that you can insult someone without resorting to 12 year old methods?

At first I read this thinking you were serious. Then the sarcastic tone sunk in, and I almost fell out of my chair laughing.

This really makes you sound like an arrogant jerk. fwiw

Geez I promise this is the last post for you.

But ... when you won't address what I wrote, do you expect me to give you a serious answer again? You really gotta be quicker on these things.

Cheers!

Listen, this whole side battle, while interesting, is severely detracting from us bashing the OP. Please continue in PMs.

Thanks.

....But keep the cat pictures coming; they're hilarious.

Btw, to the others - nice job on the "serious" pics.

Brilliant TTTennis. I may be 12, but I can appreciate that.
