Who will get the last word in this debate?
|Add New Argument|
This is the first argument. You must dispute or support this argument. If you click on the orange "add argument" button above, you will be banned and forfeit the win.
I created this debate because I have noticed that having the most logical argument doesn't always win. The winner seems to be whoever has the last word. So I want to know who has the stamina to go the distance.
I also created this debate because I have never banned anyone from any of my debates and I would like to use that feature after all these years.
@HellNo, Leave it to me to up the ante ;)
That makes it much easier.
Because brains are fragile.
And they get more fragile by reliance on external agents, such as computers.
Also, I could control your computer, mind, everything. But that takes a lot of resources, and it won't be economical to do it on you.
Also, I find it boring to be a cyber equivalent of Moriarty. But as a cyber security specialist lawyer, that won't be very hard. (I'm not really specialising that much, probably, because I don't like programming.)
It must be hard to be really old.
To know that you've been living for so long.
I hypothesised that it must be terrifying to consider that a lot is now memories, and even though it might now seem to have passed quickly, the time has always been moving as slow as it seems to at any moment. (Considering the astronomical accelerations to be negligible.)
Not, of course, the fright of death to come.
But rather the memory of what has been. It must seem to have passed quickly, as if just a few days ago was the...well, all things. (At least the way you chose to remember them in future the last time you did.)
And now that's all gone. No matter how quick it might now seem, it clearly was as slow as everything now, even though you might not try to think how slowly the time passes. (Because, it seems, people get better at ignoring the passage of time.)
But if you've been persistent on a website (that has a rather old design - universal enough for my needs) for 8 years, then I guess that's just something you think to feel better about it.
These self affirmations are easy to believe in - because that's an important feature of the brain. That's why they are generally rather shallow.
I don't think so.
Those who want to can pray to their deities (that they get to pray to them for eternity.)
A stagnant life is extremely boring.
We own this planet, and we can own millions like this.
And damage is going to be done. The living nature can itself lose under its rules. Especially with what I hear about the actions of your new president - damage won't be prevented.
Things always go a particular way.
It's all either predictable and boring or worsening and annoying.
For example, I couldn't have predicted Trump winning - I could bet for him going out in whatever those pre election rounds are called.
I'd consider running for elections myself if I didn't have different plans. I'll probably be a backstage puppeteer if I want to.
But he can't be a worse candidate than Rahul Gandhi. If he'd have won, it'd be definite that the task is extremely easy.
Hmm... Yes, I wasn't really about to include that other way, when I remembered some things that don't belong there.
Either way, things are generally boring.
So they should be made to move quickly.
That means no stagnation.
Until, perhaps, I get old and bored of things going fast.
With Trump as your president?
I probably won't.
Already your country has an entirely different law education, offering JD instead of LLB and all, so the Bar Council here isn't very accepting about that.
Also, it has gone against what I would have predicted, so I wonder what an irrational person would do of a high position.
I don't really need to 'move to' anywhere, though.
But if I had to, it'd probably be Russia or Switzerland - their laws are the most friendly for an international puppeteer.
Still, India is a good place. The implementation of law is only when those in power want it or are forced by popular pressure.
And they can target only such small things that it's all not worth much concern. It's the greedy idiots who would find them overwhelming - I merely want an amusing game.
I care little about the world.
As I said, I merely want an interesting game.
Though I might end up taking over the world, because that's the greatest platform to play on.
And I'll be destroying anything up there I don't like. That increases the chances of someone coming forward to play and be crushed if he isn't worth it. That includes many religions. Let's see how validly they say/believe that a hero always emerges.
All I know is I feel I should be declared winner in getting the last word in this debate for having to endure clicking through 'show replies' a gazillion times to finally be able to type what I hope to be the final word after the never-ending convo between JatinNagpal and Jolie which is the internet equivalent of War and Peace, whew!! :))
I'm quite effective at the purpose.
To the shadows you shall return, where the self is lost in non-existence and all that remains is a blunt perception that won't be stored in memory.
But, in the things that still go on in your brain, you'll understand that a complete sentience isn't necessary to function.
The weather is fine.
And I do have better things to do either way, even if it weren't. Just requires electricity for convenience, which is generally present.
There's all the preparation I have to do to go to the best universities before playing the greatest game of history. Sufficient resources are freely available for the purpose (legally or otherwise - but I plan to purchase all the books in hardcover later.)
So yes, I'm essentially wasting time (of holidays.)
I wonder why.
From the brief in its Wikipedia article, it seems like just one of those kids' shows about something wanting to take over the world.
And they have terrible plans - so terrible that it's boring.
I doubt something idiot would be able to counter me. It's not a feasible scenario to even happen, much less succeed.
Six figures, you mean? (It couldn't be farther with an error.)
A reference to income?
Living the American dream?
Then you might rejoice it the fact that the American dream exists just to make the little people feel more accomplished than they would otherwise. It'd not exist till now if it wasn't thus beneficial in preserving the status quo. And the people, like slaves, believe any such things put upon them.
But I could predict their voting, even though I didn't want it to go that way.
It's not a risk big enough for me to divide the influence.
I would also have more cards to play in each consequent election. The more dogmatic countries can be done away with, unless they're useful.
Thank you for the welcome, but after reading much of the conversation between you and Jolie, I'm quite convinced that you will bore me long before I could ever persist enough to reach your limits, LOL!
And then there's Joe, who could never be boring because just when you think he's on the verge of achieving it, he morphs into his next persona, and it's party time all over again! :))
I don't think that the winner is necessarily the ''last man standing''. I feel that the winner is the one who presents the most logical argument in a reasoned and persuasive manner. I also consider that the people reading the various arguments have the ability to make rational judgments based on the merits and quality of presentation of each viewpoint and not on volume nor agreeing with the last opinion posted.
