"The Knight in Shining Armor", is but one of many character suits in a gentleman's treasure(d) chest.
I am just looking for friends. I like learning about things I don't know, or have a misconception with, and a lot more. Everything is usually fun. Nothing tends not to be.
A_Muse_Mint101: "I'd rather a racist president than a communist president."
Heard this used in defense of the current PotUS a few times now. This is not only stupid, but a false-dichotomy.
"If you hate America, you can leave" is a red herring; a logical fallacy. One doesn't become a representative of a nation because they hate it; one becomes a representative of a nation because they want to see it succeed.
This PotUS is most certainly not espousing the Christian principles of which so many of you so vehemently think you believe in; quite the opposite.
I'm not a theist, but I know about the story how the devil tried to make a bargain with Jesus. Perhaps you guys forgot, don't know, are kewl with it, or are simply blinded by lies. In any case, you are siding with a (I hope only metaphorical) devil when siding with Trump, period. Adulterer (thrice), bigoted, conceited, dishonest... I could use the whole alphabet of negatives to --accurately-- describe Trump.
Please, don't show me your incompetence with rebukes rather than rebuts, just like your idol would do. That just proves my point that you're already, or in jeopardy of being, a devil's lackey.
A_Muse_Mint101: My proplane accelerant position has many think I'm an abuser. I'm not, I think buses are just fine, too.
A_Muse_Mint101: The truth is not always as important, nor necessarily as strange, as the fiction(s) we willingly author and/or subscribe to.

A_Muse_Mint101: Fun facts about my area:
The county I live in has more species of bird than any other part of North America, and also has hosted the capital city of Texas, twice (Washington-on-the-Brazos and West Columbia). The city I live in is where Jalapeno jelly was created in 1978. It's also the city where Nolan Ryan gave me a pitching lesson with -his- coaches.
The King Ranch is larger in acreage than the state of Rhode Island (850,000~ acres to 777,000~ acres).
A_Muse_Mint101: So if we are going to regulate the reproductivity of females, in the name of equality, I will not be ejaculating in solidarity with those who are forced into giving birth.
It is only fair that if we are forcing that goo to stay in a woman, then we're forcing that goo to stay in men, too.
A_Muse_Mint101: Should be moving into a nice apartment later today; washer and dryer included in the unit. Next is some furniture.
A_Muse_Mint101: New (old) home, new lappytop, soon to get new phone and a new (old) temporary job, and maybe a newish car in a couple months. I said I wanted a week vacation because I've not had so many days off in a row in over a decade, but ...
My grandfather (Opa) is already so annoying. I'm hardheaded because I don't just accept his criticism as gospel. Oy vey, I just rebuke with, "yeah, I must get it from you." lol

A_Muse_Mint101: Yeah, probably back to where I was. There were a few gambles coming here, and I didn't actually quit my pizza delivery job. So I can still go back and assume working, practically whenever I want.
I may do that, and start working on getting a CDL-A and transition to that; like an upgrade from pizza delivery to freight delivery, I guess.
I'm growing less inclined to be around people, it seems. Just never had much luck making friends of quality in the physical world. Even tho I can't seem to dispel myself from needing -some- interactivity with people, in -some- fashion (like this!) I'd be an ideal candidate for the first person to die on Mars, if I could pass a physical for the biological stressors of the trip, lol
Damn that digressed...
A_Muse_Mint101: New ad from AAA has the catch phrase, don't drive intoxicated; don't drive intexticated.
Thought that was clever.
A_Muse_Mint101: "This list will begin with the more benign reasons for Trump’s intransigent support. As the list goes on, the explanations become increasingly worrisome, and toward the end, border on the pathological. It should be strongly emphasized that not all Trump supporters are racist, mentally vulnerable, or fundamentally bad people. It can be detrimental to society when those with degrees and platforms try to demonize their political opponents or paint them as mentally ill when they are not. That being said, it is just as harmful to pretend that there are not clear psychological and neural factors that underlie much of Trump supporters’ unbridled allegiance."
"In the essay "The Multiple Harms of Sea Lions," Amy Johnson writes:
"Rhetorically, sealioning fuses persistent questioning—often about basic information, information on easily found elsewhere, or unrelated or tangential points—with a loudly-insisted-upon commitment to reasonable debate. It disguises itself as a sincere attempt to learn and communicate.
Sealioning thus works both to exhaust a target’s patience, attention, and communicative effort, and to portray the target as unreasonable. While the questions of the “sea lion” may seem innocent, they’re intended maliciously and have harmful consequences.""
"One of the saddest statistics about my life is the amount of time that I spend pointlessly debating anti-scientists. Having devoted so much time to this endeavor has, however, allowed me to observe certain patterns and trends in their debate tactics. Specifically, there are several flawed debate strategies that anti-scientists frequently employ. In fact, I have rarely been in a debate where my opponent did not at some point commit one of these. So in this post, I am going to describe seven fundamentally flawed, yet extremely common debate tactics that you should watch out for and avoid at all cost. If you commit one of these, then you have automatically lost the debate."
