Reconciling assholes for nearly a decade.

Yesterday in a harried sugar fit

I went to the grocery store on my lunch break and bought an entire box of Runts.

They're almost all gone, too.

Sugar highs aren't as much fun when you're old.  :-P

At least you don't have to worry about being slim and trim for the ladies anymore at your age, oldtimer.

My metabolism slammed on the brakes at about 25.  Boy did that suck.

Ohhhh! I see, it's the metabolism and not eating the box of sugar snacks. Ok. I guess in that case, there's nothing you can do.

When I could have done it 4 years ago without consequence, and now I can't, yes, metabolism plays a role.

Who the fuck said I was blaming my metabolism for being fat?  I said that it sure sucked when I could no longer get away with eating whatever I felt like.

Sounds like you've got a chip on your shoulder.

Same with you, Locutus.  Big chip.  Both of you.

Where did I say "Waaaaaaah I'm fat because my metabolism is evil!" ?

I said "Boy, it sure sucks getting fat when I eat instead of getting away with it like I used to."

There's a subtle difference there.

Of course, you're both a tiny bit biased, which is a terrible handicap when you're also both idiots.

Locutus, I bet the problem is that English is not our native tongue, as muppet is sure to point out next. I bet we're just missing the great depth and subtlety in his expression.

Btw: where did I say you're blaming your metabolism?

You seem to imply it pretty strongly, here.  Who the fuck said my metabolism was a scapegoat for anything?

And no, I only figure it's a lost-in-translation type of problem when I know the person I'm talking to probably isn't an idiot.  I have no such confidence in either of you.

It continues to amaze me that people capable of being multilingual can't otherwise think abstractly at all whatsoever.  It's very disconcerting.

I mean, fuck, I suck at languages.  I took 4 years of Spanish instruction and I STILL can't speak Spanish to save my life.  However, I have no trouble holding my own in any argument as long as it doesn't require specific domain knowlege I haven't got.  What's the matter with YOU people?

For someone who considers himself a "master troll", muppet's chain is pretty easily pulled. I wonder what bias he's refering to? Is he implying we're biased again lardasses? He'd be suprised that, though not American, I'm a bit pudgy myself, weighing roughly 90 kgs at 1.84 m. Of course he'd have no idea how much that is, but maybe he could code up a little conversion routine for his forum if he finds someone to help him out with the javascript and math involved...

around 200 pounds, and no I didn't need any calculator

Anyway, it was just a stupid out of context comment.  A good troll makes semantic and contextual sense and THEN twists things around 'til they're ridiculous.  Your attempt was just lame and annoying.

don't you mean "as long as the definition of winning is having the last word, and posting more paragraphs of atrocious sub-reasoning than anyone else can even be bothered  replying to" ?

(PS  .... mwah )

That's a beautiful triple negative. Rhetorically, you're an ace. The delusion of grandeur thing must suck, though.

Speaking for myself only: I never intended it to be otherwise. Pulling your chain is just a passtime. Get over it

There's way too many people here who can't handle the general lack of any structure imposed by an off topic forum.  They NEED rules or else they can't help but be jackasses.

mup, any tiny little fucking hint of a prod at your inflated self and you're off with accusing people of having a "chip on their shoulder" or some other pissy nonsense. Then you get the arse when people have a laugh at your expense (which is such fun that they really ought to declare a closed season - take my word for it, as laughing at yourself is obviously something you've no experience of).

But fair play to you ... you always manage to turn it around so that it's you that is the greater being, rising above it all ... and so the cycle begins again ...

if you say so

If the troll had been the least bit elegant, I'd have given the guy some praise, but it was lame and dumb.

But if you're entertained, then that's no skin off my nose.  Be entertained.

It always amuses me that everyone on this forum who dislikes me will support nearly any argument that derides me, no matter how clearly flawed or full of holes that argument may be.

It's perfectly all right to dislike me and NOT agree with EVERYONE else who ALSO dislikes me, you know.  It won't sully your reputation.

I don't know, I think he IS a master Troll.  Shoot, all he said was something about eating sugar and "not getting away with it", and you guys are all over each other sending flames back and forth.

Sound and fury, signifying nothing.  Looks like a great troll thread.
