I use only use two words to stop any arguments : " you're right."

Are they then going to argue they were wrong?


I guess that depends on how contrary they are. Or irrational.

I actually thought of putting this in the rant forum but decided to put it in general. I wasn't angry when I wrote it.

Good one. I wondered why you said that in a couple of posts.


I mainly use it because I know the discussion will go nowhere. Plus it's one hell of a hard word for anyone to reply to .



Food for thought ..... In real life you run into this issue also . It is at that point there are two words all men should remember " Yes Dear " . Lol

If you are married, yes honey, no honey! If you are pulled over by a cop, sure you can search!

depends on what kind of paint and what colors they are! Who doesn't like watching a water colored rainbow dry?

True. But if they start to argue about being right, why bother?

Y'know, there's something more to what you said. A loaded statement if you will. This inherent personality flaw we have is really going to be our own undoing. I don't know how many of us have the capability to admit being wrong because it involves a hodgepodge of other personality flaws.

Loaded like a diaper or a potato?

"Food for thought." That's punny.

I admit that I like watching it when it's my favorite color. My favorite color is clear.

That's right. Why bother? It's not worth it. Or, as Greathouse says, potato.

4 words to keep you out of trouble

It's not worth it




That is the best you have to offer? If that statement comes out of your mouth, then you must be argueing for the sake of argueing and not for something you actually believe in and stand behind.

Remember that time Martin Luther King said "it's not worth it"?

How about Einstien?

Niel armstrong?

My point being, if you find yourself in a discussion with someone who disagrees strongly with your point of view, and all you can come up with to say at the end is "It's not worth it", then why the hell are you in a discussion about IT in the first place? By this account you should only discuss topics you agree on, with people who agree with you.

Some people will argue about anything, but to them, it is worth it. Saying it is not, is only to belittle them so you can pretend you are taking the high road. Granted, there are lots of people who have opinions which i strongly disagree with. But i will continue to engage in a conversation up until they stop taking it serious by saying something childish like "it's not worth it" or "potato".

That is when i know they have exhausted all of their points and have conceded that they have no reason to continue with their side of a discussion.
