    Maybe you ought to take a little time off. You seem to be upset with everyone in every post. Enjoy the holidays and we'll see you again in the New Year.

    You also accused Sarkus of lying when he said he direct messaged me. That's three times with three different posters. That's a definite pattern. Maybe even a compulsion. And since I don't even read all your boring long-ass posts, it may have occurred more times than that. You should really seek help. Perhaps a good psychiatrist or a priest.

    I wrote this to Sarkus: "You pretend you've sent private messages of consolation to him, because you believe I've been bullying him .... I don't believe you have sent any such communication to him. I don't believe you care about his feelings."

    If you feel like Sarkus does care about your feelings and about protecting you from evil old me, I'm glad he has given you a warm fuzzy feeling of comfort inside, MR. Really, I am. Personally, I still don't think warm feelings for you is what motivated him, here. I guess there's no sure way to know, either way.
    Your limited attention span is one reason you're in this mess in the first place.
    It's laughable that you, of all people, would try to insult me with that.

    I seem to remember that we were going to try to improve this thread, by sticking to the arguments, not attacking the arguer.

    Not to criticise the sentiment, but isn't that gif a case of turning over the same leaf?

    It may look all shiny and new on the other side, but it's really not.

    FWIW (and on the small chance that you didn't already know) the phrase is about books (a page is a leaf of a book etc), the idiom being how one would start afresh by turning to a blank page.

    You can't help yourself, can you.

    The issue was about whether you accused me of lying, not what the lie was about. So you try to deflect. But, hey, your lack of honesty, coupled with your personal issues with me, wouldn't let you just say "yup, I accused him of lying. You got me." Instead you have to take whatever opportunity you can get, relevant to the conversation or not, to take more swings.
    Step out of the playground, James R. You keep asking others to do so, so try to recognise that you're still in there. You're the only one still pulling conversations down to thatd level. Not just in this thread, but in others as well. Any personal issues you have with people, take it to PM. Noone else (probably) gives a shit about them. You're a moderator, for fuck's sake! Grow up and set the example!

    Nor can you, apparently. Nor can Magical Realist. Maybe all three of us could do with gaining a little more self control.
    Yes, I accused you of lying. I think you were lying. What of it?
    I think you'll find that in this instance it was Magical Realist who decided to take a swing. And, of course, you're happy to join. Can't help yourself, perhaps.
    Why don't you set the example for us all, Sarkus? You've had many opportunities. Maybe Magical Realist will extend to you the same discourtesy he extended to me, by recommending a priest or a psychiatrist for you as well. Or has he already done that in one of your heart to heart private chats?
    Er... no. There's you, for starters, and now there's also Magical Realist. Seattle has been pulling the conversations down too, if I recall correctly.
    I have no interest in PMing you, or anybody else, about this lowest-common-denominator personal bullshit.

    Let's try an experiment, shall we? You try ceasing your personal attacks on me, and we'll see what happens. Do you think you can do that?

    That leaf could be new to the person in the gif turning it over, though? lol!

    Yep, I realize the phrase's origin. It's been one that comes up quite a bit around this time of year, when we all start pondering our new year's resolutions.

    No disagreement.
    That's all you needed to admit. MR gave it as an example, and all you had to say was "yep, I did" (or words to that effect). Instead you took the opportunity to revisit what you thought I was lying about, in order to take a swing at me. What you lied about is/was irrelevant to the fact that you accused me of lying, which is what MR claimed. Note the aggressive and childish behaviour in your response, to take a swing at me?
    MR did, and that's for you to defend against. If you didn't accuse me of lying then you could have claimed that, and defended yourself, for example. But you took the opportunity not to simply accept that you did, but to swing at me, an irrelevancy to the point MR made, and to which you admit being true. I'm simply defending myself, and pointing out your childish and aggressive approach in an effort to curb it.
    I'm trying, James R. I honestly am, but it's not helped when you throw such back in my face.
    Again with the aggression and childish response. Do you honestly not recognise it of yourself?
    Well, at least you admit you're still doing it. That's a start. Now, let's all step out of the playground, shall we?
    Then stop letting the personal issue you have with me cloud your responses.
    You cease your personal attacks on everyone else, and your aggression, and drop the personal issue you seem to have with me, and you have a deal. Do you think you can do that?

    For some reason I've now got images of a young child turning over the same leaf again and again, and getting frustrated about it... until someone hands him a shiny new leaf, and his face lights up in a huge smile.

    lmao!

    I think this could be your calling, Sarkus - time for you to make a new gif to illustrate my point.

    Time for another thread title change

    My suggestion

    SANDPIT

    Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!



    You might note the pit is really only big enough for one

    But that's fine if it only has one poster with an occasional visitor

    UFO's?

    How about new thread- title

    UFO's Tic Tacs and later. Nothing sooner

    "Aliens" are so much a part of our collective psyche and culture that it is one of the first things that comes to mind when the bizarre happens. It's like a placeholder for X the unknown..

    I would contend the first aliens were called gods

    Lightening thunderstorm - gods - have that power

    Only later when more understanding of nature emerged were gods downgraded to being entities "like us" but from a different non specified place

    So ... now you think aliens visited us in the past?

    Weren't you the guy saying you're certain there's no aliens visiting us.

    You sure have a way of misconstruing straight text

    I would contend the first aliens were called gods because Lightening thunderstorm - gods - have that power

    ie plain ordinary natural nature being misconstrued as being caused by local gods (no visiting required)

    Yes and I still hold that view

    Only later when more understanding of nature emerged were gods downgraded to being entities "like us" but from a different non specified place

    understanding of nature emerged were gods downgraded to being entities (aliens if you will)

    "like us" but from a different non specified place (which could be a cave or down from a mountain) ie still locals so still no visitations required

    Clear?

    1/ Aliens (as presented as per little green entities)
    • Have never ever visited Earth
    • Never will in the future
    • We will never visit any other planatry system other than our own
    • Which will be very limited in scope
