I like dissecting arguments into little bits. Sue me.

I'm too lazy to carry on replying to this thread any more, it's not worth the effort. You've beat me Xyle, I bow to your vast knowledge of computer chips and the like. All you other crazy kids, have fun.

Actually, much though it pains me to do, I have to give Xyle credit for accurately quoting a movie about kung fu. In mandarin, kung fu, (or as it would be more accurately written, "gong fu") does literally translate to "hard work".

These days it is almost exclusively used to refer to martial arts, however, the movie that was quoted is set in a historical context, when "kung fu" probably retained its original meaning, and therefore, Xyle's point is not incorrect. It is merely irrelevant.

You're an idiot then. It is painful to everyone involved and it doesn't make you look any smarter.

The Forbidden Kingdom was the worst Kung Fu movie I've seen the past... 3 months (Game of Death 2 was worse). And if I were to say "Traditional Chinese Martial Arts," people lack the familiar term. Not to forget that Kung Fu is used in context of martial arts by many people, and only those like Xyle, who have to make a fuss about every word insist on being anal about it.

Don't forget that killing innocents when waging war is considered a "war crime." So our brave soldiers in the Middle East aren't allowed to shoot unarmed civillians, to give an example.

P.S. Repeat to yourself: "it's just a show, I should really just relax." But replace "a show," with "my life."

@Kierkegaard

Silence can be immoral when someone holding their tongue while fully knowing that their failure to speak will result in someone's death.

The rest I will need to consider your worldview on the matter to see if I even a means to reply.

If you thought my intent was to look smart, you are sorely mistaken.

@Xyle: If you want to know my entire worldview on the matter, you'll have to shoot me a PM. It's pretty tl;dr.

Oh ok, because you said that wasn't your intent I'll believe you. That or you just realised you're an idiot and want to cover your tracks now. I am leaning towards the latter.

Yeah, I hate it when idiots become self aware. That Kierkegaard fellow sure is a douche.

Hey, back on page 20 or so, ytzk and I came to an agreement about ancient Hebrew not really having an integrated system of mathematical semantics or something.

If you haven't been paying attention, I'm going to demand you re-read the entire thread.

Vast knowledge? I speak of a few tidbits of knowledge that were useful for understanding the progession of computer technology, and I have vast knowledge?

It is easy to accurately quote a movie when you use turn on the subtitles and pause the movie every few seconds.

A true master can quote a wuxia or jidaigeki movie months, or even years after seeing it (at least, if it was a good movie).

What fuss? I liked the movie. I especially liked the part that I quoted and I wanted to share. Especially the part that I put in my sig: "Learn it all, then forget it all." If I just quoted the part that I put in my sig, it would not have made sense.

Anal? Yep, that's me. Completely anal retentive. I need to loosen up. But then, I don't get anal about other people's quotes, so why should you have a problem with it?

I agree that killing innocents is murder.
But don't forget that the rules of warfare have changed over the centuries. It is typically illegal to criminally prosecute someone for committing a crime that wasn't a crime when it was committed.

Reminds me of the line that goes something like "Life - no one gets out alive." Too bad I can't remember the rest of the joke.

Yeah "don't take life too seriously, you're not getting out alive anyway."

Uh, and with fuss, I was talking not about the movie, but about how a couple of your arguments were based on the definition and usage of words.

It was dead, but then you guys kept throwing in 2 word posts to push to 20. Now look what you did, your recklessness has caused the thread to grow to over 30 pages. May God have mercy on us all!

Is this the part where one of you uncovers an easily misunderstood but oddly literal phrase in the bible that says people can kill those who have wronged them to the point of making said individuals incapable of finding work? Just to be clear, I'm speaking out of selfish reasons and have yet to find some form of closure through years of psychotherapy and countless meds. I'm currently hallucinating worse than if I was on a low dose of aid and I've been clean for 7 weeks. Not in a happy place. Thanks to the tricks my mind plays on me, I don't recognize my own face anymore.

Have you tried memorising what you see in the mirror? It may help towards recognition.

Presumably he doesn't know whether he's looking in the mirror or at a photograph. He might accidentally memorise the picture of George W. Bush that he has on the fridge, thinking that it's his own face.

And then look at a dollar and go "huh, that's my face on there."

Note: I've never been to America so I don't know what's printed on the different values of USD.
