    Your over use / abuse / misuse of metaphors is getting irritating. Its one thing to have a discussion about oranges and market forces. But this constant barrage of near nonsense is getting boring. The connections are too thin between most of them to carry any real weight into the argument. Water, uneven surfaces, interplay of forces? It comes across like your trying to impress someone. Take off the toga, your not Aristotle. Besides a rationale is something worn by Bishops. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    What irritates is groundless accusations and display of over-challenged emotions on your part (whatever mental state on your behalf may cause it).

    Read my previous post and feel free to disagree in anyway you want, but don't try to turn it into personal altercation (I am not interested in picking a fight with loonies and won't respond to such comments from you in the future).

    Have a great day.

      Now please be consistent and prove your point.

      How did my comment/reflection on basic principle of economics and/or comparing it to flow of water on uneven surface (invisible hand of Adam Smith to Newtonian force of gravity in Physics) come accross as "holier than thou"?

      I know in most forums it's the function of moderators, but since we have none on this forum, who assumes their function/responsibility in lieu?
      You?

      I couldn't care less if you decided to eat your key-board or challenged me to a duel with samurai sword.

      What I said was that you won't get likewise responce from me to your aggressive provocations since "I am not interested in picking a fight with loonies" , nor any altercation whatsoever, and will simply ignore your comments if you come up with groundless accusations and display of over-challenged emotions in future.

      It is not my job/specialty to perform profound psychological assessment of you or anyone else on this forum (though I once tried to help ProudUSC in his attempt to gain answer to his question , as to why he thinks I do what he himself actually does whenever he replies to my posts).

      As to 'looney' , it simply means a person who is mad or foolish; lunatic (Longman Dictionary of American English).

      Now, if you don't get a good laughter from all above, then you better take a good look at the mirror and try to figure what do you actually see there

        Quoting is easy so I will, to avoid confusion.

        Basically, above means that you felt insecure in your writing abilities and it is my use of metaphors that caused it.

        Hehehe, that sounds funny: davdah feels insecure about his writing because I use too many metaphors, ergo he has to resort to attacking me

        I know what I posted. What you still miss though is timing.
        I posted "Rough Neighbor" thread after her statement that I was the MOST suitable target for her teasing.
        So I responded by posting a link to a certain song and hoped she would enjoy it.

        Tank, sword, duel, whatever.. in any event you are not my enemy, just a looney who wants me to play the music according to his tunes.

              ProudUSC, rue no longer, actually based on my own womanly instincts (that seldom fail), this poster is likewise confused with his/her own. He's too softy for me as a man, yet too bellicose to be a woman. Like an element in transition. Say mercury. A liquid metal. An amphoteric. An amalgam. A hybrid. Moreover, his/her chronological age can't be within the 18-80 range. He/she is surely only either beneath or beyond working age. His/her ideas are either too childish or too obsolescent. He/she could never be poor or in the middle-class, only either rich or very rich, because he/she could squander on this forum so much time and effort, hence money, like no other.

              (Just my opinion - please treat with utmost respect).

                First, I must say that I must have done something very good - to get all this broad attention from so many posters at once, and these posters are doing much to boost my rating on this board, for which I must thank them all


                As to my being 'too soft' for a man or 'too bellicose' for a woman..
                No woman can ever be said to be too bellicose.

                As to being perceived 'too soft' for a man, I would certainly prefer that to acting against my individual will and purpose under any circumstances.

                    Since I am a rational being it's obvious that I would never hesitate to contradict myself if it was in my interests, but that is not the case here

                    Excerpt you quoted was part of my reply to davdah, and in no way contradicts what I posted later.

                      Dav, thank you for completing the (hypo)thesis for me again. Bellicose may not be the more appropriate word to prove my point, but I chose between that and belligerent. Either one of these synonymous words may not be commonly descriptive of a woman, but I thought it did for my flair for rhetorics and general semantics. Likewise, teasing (the teasables) serves to lighten up the monotony of toil and daily grind. Anyway, RationalE seems to be okay with that too.

                        1. That's your perception (davdah: "The name [Muscle Milk] has a g a y undertone to it").

                        2. It is said that perception is based on past experience (I am not saying it, reputable professionals in the field of psychology do).

                        3. Finally, it's a product to build muscle.

                        What matters?

                        a) That it serves the purpose (gives 32g of protein per serving) and
                        b) Is not as bad tasting as some other products of the same purpose.

                        The rest (g a y , l e s b i a n, Marsian and etc.) is irrelevant.

                            This forum has become a slothful, selfish display of nonsense and a wasteland for ignorant, idol minds. Honestly, no time for wannabe junior philosophers, sounds to me like some serious mental problems and frankly, I won't waste my time anymore.

                                To davdah:

                                Well, you must have had your kids very early

                                Sorry for OT, but IMHO looking younger than one's age has more to do with slower biological clock of an individual organism than anything else, including hereditary genetics.

                                My dad at 24 looked much older than his age.

                                I am his son, but I look so much younger than my age.
                                Not trying to avoid sun or wrinkles (yet everybody says I look 10 years younger than my age, God knows why).

                                In any event I don't think your recipe has much to do with how young you look.
