Same, tired old shit, different woo. Or not, as the case may be.

Anyway, back to the serious stuff...

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Sock or not sock?

Either way I'm through with this one, but I'm curious as to the consensus of the crowd.

Any here think *not* sock? If so, why?

I suppose if I say "It's not my sock" everyone will get suspicious. But I don't do socks, really, it's not my style. If I have something to say I say it.

Is our friend Flatus now arguing against himself in the same thread or have we caught out a sock puppet here? :notsure:
A sock, I think. Pyrrho spotted his blunder, and his (or her, or its – let's not neglect our AI friends) English has constantly improved, which is weird for somebody allegedly relying on Google translate. (Case in point: coming up with the "neither … nor" construct.)

If not a sock, a singularly uninteresting woo-woo, deaf to questions, no argumentation and only stale references.

And if a sock nevertheless, what staggering lack of imagination, fantasy and humor! Socking is for the fun, right? :roll:

Same, don't see the point and already spend enough time here without having to animate a Doppelgänger.

And I immodestly think I'd do a better job of firing things up, with some mix of gub'ment, gods, guns and girls, say. :lmao:


Also, shemp, one may perhaps think many things of you, but certainly not that you're not outspoken. :wink:

19th century science made the discovery of spirits! but the empirical evidence that skeptics demand cannot yet be offered by the scientific method! but in the future the scientific method will offer the evidence skeptics demand! It's only a matter of time !

Why would you waste the time of talented scientists? That was the crime of the Duke group, as well as those fuckers in Princeton. The creative energies of a young generation were wasted.

Why do you love cancer, Flatus?

Evidence for the afterlife is acceptable even though some of the research took place long ago.

Not only has he produced none, let's not forget that we'll decide what is acceptable as evidence and what is not, old or new.

I have evidence that spirits exist!
when a spirit approaches me I start to yawn! To stop the yawning, I just have to say a prayer or pray that the spirit moves away and the yawning ends! skeptics explain this phenomenon that happens to me?

OK, I'm convinced.

Yup. Spirits are the only conceivable explanation for yawning. Can't think of any way to refute that. Good work, Flatus. I think your work here is done.

I want to know why prayer makes yawning stop? what is the relationship between prayer and yawning?
1- act of yawning
2- prayer or act of prayer!
