  • Sometimes you have to cut the cord…
  • Some people cannot be helped, no matter what we do!
  • Are they ignorant or malicious?
  • Mike has matured a bit now he’s 66…
  • ”You should…” is the imposition of someone else’s model on you!
  • What do you mean by that? How do you know that?
  • Hands off my control panel!

  • Smirking disbelief! It’s truly mocking…
  • Neutrinos are real, no matter what Dave thinks… Get an education!

  • ”Well all I know…” Limited knowledge doesn’t mean you are correct!
  • Ad hominem attacks go after the person, not the evidence!
  • To seem more powerful: Take up more space and move slower…
