Betharl wrote:[M]y conclusion has not shifted, my reasoning has... Yes, I originally said Mensa should not be included because Mensa is douchey. You then told me Mensa was involved in other stuff other than bragging about test scores; to which I essentially replied, whatever ...it does not add anything, blah blah blah. My support/reasoning has changed, but my contention is and always has been that Mensa should not go on a resume.



How ironic that we are having this discussion in the LSAT forum....Betharl, are you familiar with subordinate conclusions?


"Exists solely" was a poor choice of words. Very few things exist for a singular purpose. "Exists mainly" would have been better. Still, I feel like we are arguing semantics here when you very well know my main conclusion all along has been that Mensa does not belong on a resume, regardless of how I arrived at that conclusion and whether my support (premises, counter-premises, subordinate conclusion, whatever vocab words you want to use) has changed over time. Besides, I thought I already admitted I had backed off that point, even if I did not concede it entirely.

Edit: Or are you trying to say that because you proved one of my subordinate conclusions may be wrong my main conclusion must be wrong?

No need to get defensive over this, smarty pants! Call me weird, but I'm just not that hard up to join a club to prove that I'm -probably- slightly smarter than the average person


Not being defensive...if you aren't able to constructively participate in a discussion about something, whether it be due to deficiencies in your mental faculties or simply your lack of desire...I get that...I just think you reach the pinnacle of douchebaggery when you bitch about ppl talking about something...only to then start chiming in in a snide way.

Brush up on your fact-finding, bro, when did I "bitch about ppl talking about something"?

Anyway, I clearly hurt your feelings. I'm sorry. Mensa is a great club. You're a genius, hands down! Slap yourself on the back, you're a smart one!

I accept your apology and will disregard your questionable attempt to ... Make fun of me? Lol. Sucks to be a relatively well-rounded person. Sorry I made fun of your exclusive club - you're right, membership confers so many advantages. Let's count them...

Let's hope so, it'd be interesting to see them do well... I'm used to having to root for En-ger-land and Sweden

Dempsey is on top of his game right now. Happy overall with the performance! Just need to get the center back position figured out and some more consistent scoring from strikers like Altidore and Aguedelo.

Gonna try to make it to the 2014 Brazil World Cup!!! That would be so much fun
