...Fatuous...

I can't help it, every thyme I hear or read that I thing/think:  "Gasbag" as in 'Fatuous Gasbag'

-----

Not to dereal, but it reminds me of the draught/draft conversation that involved writing the word "draught" and trying to esplain that it was pronounced ""draft"" which I quickly gave up on...  Damn useless ears/mynds...

I make a post about being jealous and I get attacked out of nowhere. smh
How were you attacked?  Just trying to help you.  Wow, pretty defensive when someone is just trying to help you.  Why so sensitive?  You don't need to feel insecure or anything about it -- now you have another word to use and can even look up the meaning if you want.   ;D

That on her own, she will still be on the air and with the same ratings with Midnight in the Desert in three months, the same amount of time and quality that Art brought to the program.  What's yours?

That is your measure? Dear me.. Here's an analogy..Olympic 100 metres champion who trains every day most of the day for the last three years against a club runner who has been running six months..I wonder who might be favourite?

But what about in two or three years?

You're (see what I did there?) doing it again. You assume (assumption is the mother of all fuck ups) you're more intelligent than others. When in fact you merely disagree with their argument.
How is stating a fact making such an assumption . . . unless somehow facts threaten you?  Are you threatened by facts?  Is that it?  Do they make things tougher for you?  It's okay.  It's just a message board.  You don't have to feel insecure about these things.  Just focus more on the distinction between fact and opinion.  You can do it.  I am rooting for you!   ;D

Helping me how again? I wasn't asking for any help. Presumptive of you.

Two or three years what?  I gave you a clear, detailed answer -- that's the best you have?  Seriously? 

Midnight in the Desert isn't going to be on the air in two or three years with her at the helm.  It will be lucky to last two or three weeks unless there is a significant change.

You're very defensive aren't you? What are you attempting to do? C'mon, tell the room what it is that's bothering you; be brave.

Hey, when you see a drowning man, you just throw him a life preserver.  When you see someone without much vocabulary, you throw them some words.  And you give the link to the definition so he can look them up.  ;D

Not at all.  All I've done is respond.  So, how about dealing with some of the questions posed to you?  What are you afraid of?  Having no answer?  You don't need to be afraid of that -- you've demonstrated that ably already.  ;D

Well, in your head sure. I'm not sure you're correct in that assertion though.

You silly boy; I'm playing with you, lighten up.

Why don't you put yourself forward for the gig then? You have all the answers; you seem to be able to tell everyone on this thread how much more everything you are. Surely broadcasting isn't a reach for your exemplary skill set?

Are you eating quickly right now? Manic grin on your face?

Niggardly. One of my favorites.

Haha, so once again, you're dodging stating what you believe is the measure of success.  You asked me.  I answered.  I asked you.  You shrink from the discussion.

Silly girl, I'll get a radio gig when you get a doctorate and a tenured faculty position somewhere to teach anything remotely resembling thinking and reasoning. When that happens, I guess we'll both be qualified to offer our opinions.  ;D

I bet that shit ain't going to make it onto a syllabus.

I'll bet the bit where he comes back with. "I know you are, but what am I?" makes the cut though.  ;)

You're in education? Teaching? You teach thinking? As in indoctrination?

Does your average tutorial go along the lines of "This is what I think; it's correct. The end"

Oh I'm a tease.... All the girls love me for it really.

You may have heard of them. Ask your students.

Keep dodging.  Post after post after post, and you still can't answer the question.  It's not that complicated -- you asked it originally.   ;D

Still not answering the question, lady.  Come on.  It's not that tough. Just pick a benchmark so we can see who's right down the line.  You can do that.  Show us some more of your high-power reasoning.  ;D

It's getting your knickers in a wad isn't it? Nothing more frustrating than arguing with someone who won't argue eh?  ;D ;D

You again?  Aren't you busy learning new words?  Or did you give up on that already?  ;D
