Few holes in the phrasing of that topic. "Whim" being a very big one.

"Whim" allows for deviance in an otherwise slam dunk topic...

I'm awaiting the day when you order hard liquor instead of freshly brewed coffee.


Or does that request come after you're done and need to unwind?

There was a time I could drink any of these guys under the table.

I hear ya. I'm not much of a drinker myself. But I darn sure never could drink anyone under the table.


Anyways, probably won't be able to be online until after Christmas. It's going to be back-to-back events starting tomorrow. So, merry Christmas everyone!

In the process of drinking my guests under the table.

They're going home on monday

allegedly

They said on thursday, they were going home friday.

So who knows.

In the meantime, I'm going to keep inflicting war wounds on them (nasty drinking memories)

Some people just won't take a hint.....

They assumed that because I'm not working, I have nothing to do.

I corrected them - but then they think it's odd to talk and conduct conversations online.

They say they are not "real" conversations.

I said they're as real as any other conversation.

They are getting on my nerves.

But they're mates, so what can I do.

They got together because mates put them together, and now they're unbearably smug - they seem to think that they are the only people who've ever been "in love" and patronize everyone else accordingly.

Okay, Sky, my opening is up, and good luck to you, sir.

TWISI, it may be tomorrow or even Monday before I have a rebuttal to your horrible smear campaign about those poor elves up, but I'm sure you won't mind.

@SchroDog: darn it, I guess I didn't manage to convince kinglizard to click on the button. You're still here!


*Heike snags a fresh cup of coffee and goes to catch up on the other debates.

Proving that it's done on a whim essentially means proving a negative- that there was no planning. There are documented instances of planning in some cases. The counter-argument is that the majority of events reflect a clear failure to plan, but that interpretation depends on desired outcomes, so you've got to establish motive, which essentially means proving a conspiracy theory.
That topic could turn into a real massacre.

Stars for insteresting conversatinal direction.

Coffee or Booze both I will abuse why I might ask my mind but the brain cells inside have choose to hide in fear of the nerves delivering the signal to deliver more intoxicating pyschodelea thus reducing thier already limited numbers.

Besides Natural plants are not my enemy.

Could you argue that among the various choices the main deciding factor is whim?

That, for instance, you wanted people to feel good about you and your party because your term in office was coming to an end and the economy was about to tank and your popularity was at an all-time low.

There are a bunch of ways to make people feel good about you.

You could lower taxes one place or another, you could improve services somehow, you could wear better ties, or you could send every tax payer a hundred bucks in the mail.

The motivation and desired result are planned, but it's just whim which choice you go with.

Personally I knew the 300 dollar check was based on loans from china, I knew there was no way to revers the loan the fed already took so I cashed mine. But its just like the depression can not be stopped..... God knows what it will look like this time next next year. Still I expect to be in a much better place at that time.
