This is going to be an interesting skirmish.

Hey, I thought my opening statements were short and sweet.


That takes bravado, my friend!


Nah, some code screwed up and I'm not allowed to edit.

Are you sure it wasn't the high consumption of eggnog?

j/k



I hate it when a post goes screwy. Been down that road before, although not in debate.

Eggnog made with crown royal???

No wonder


Seriously though - that sucks.

Can they fix it for you since it was a code problem?

I think that's an obvious "critical situation" under the rules 'trep.

I think it would be kosher if I did an edit for you, but we can wait for Semperfortis if you want.

I can send the post to semper, what I remember of it, and he can edit. Hopefully.

I didn't take my own advice:

By the way, I see nothing wrong with people test-posting debate posts to this thread and then editing the test posts back out. I do it often.

Poor,

very poor

However, in the spirit of the holiday season, I will only take you to pieces - I will not spit on the pieces afterwards


I'm starting to think sci fi and quantum mechanics here - a la Dan Simmons


Christmas smack talk - gotta love it

I am aware of the research. It is flawed.
Quantum mechanics, that's like believing in the Easter Bunny.

Hence the Sci Fi comment


That's science fiction for the fatally uninformed.

i am always very happy when i get to know to cases like yours and the one of your friend.
and gladly society is changing - slowly but steady.

i guess the tradional female roles also blures a little bit throughout the years, but the mills are grinding much more slowly in this case. maybe because women tend to live under so calles double pressure, fullfilling their role in society, working in a job or getting a good education, and than also fullfilling their role at home. some still belive it has to be this way.
even if they don.t belive it, it is sometimes very hard to cope with the partner to blur the schemes during a relationship.

i never had had a problem if a partner got a better job or made more money or got more knowledge, or if it had me to be in this position.

but i had to learn that my ex partner got problems with it. so huge and tremendous problems, that we had to split.
he grew up in a family where it was common for women to work, but only in a partner supporting position.


bud, i really wonder why people are threadend by the success of women.
even other women are threadend by it.
to tell you a more personall story, a girl i know told me that it would be very difficult for me to find a new partner since i would demand so much of a guy. these demands are to take me the way i am: unique haircolor aside of mainstream tradiotions, being self-employed, single mom, intelligent
another friend adviced to pretend to be kind of stupid to attract a man, coz men wouldn.t be able to stand women who are more intelligent than they!
is that true?


is therefore the internet a kind of safe harbour where you can be the way you are or want to be?

edit:
these women are of our generation between 35 to 50 years old, which is amazing,
my mom is much more liberal than these ladies!

@interpred
although it was an accident i like your opening!

I am glad that you concede that quantum mechanics is indeed sci-fi.
I'll be sure to quote on that should the opportunity arise.

Good internet question.

I love the net because there is no gender specifics, unless someone chooses to disclose their gender - and for this reason, people can talk as just people.

Regretably, the real world doesn't work that way - and the example of your friends regarding their thoughts on finding a partner are a sad indictment of the way society is failing to redress the balance of sex discrimination.

Personally, I like eccentricity and smartness - it makes for a relationship that rarely fails to inspire quality interaction.

I concede nothing - and your attempts to unsettle, will, as ever, fall on deaf eyes.
