"Adults don't use those expressions."

In your entire adult life you never gave another soul the finger.

You're a liar (and your pants most certainly are on fire).

Never did. And peers never did either (except in comedy). My peers are educated - not children.

I cannot even recall any peer in a bar fight. Adults never resort to childish antics. Adults who are still children do. It says so much about the mentality behind all those Limbaugh, Alex Jones, Fox News, and Pravda inspired beliefs.

Patriotic Americans are moderates. Wackos (anti-Americans) fly your fickle finger of fate. The intelligence behind that finger was mocked by Laugh-in. You could not learn even from Rowan and Martin?. Even Goldie Hawn demonstrated better patriotism.

Sorry. I did not mean to make this too complicated. Please feel free to continue 'wrecking shit'. It is what you do best.

It's a little odd that you insert the "even" before the concept of a bar fight, as if that is less bad than flipping someone off.

"I've never left my garbage cans out after pickup day--hell, I've never even murdered anyone!"

That's because tw has no peers.

There is no difference. Both demonstrate antics of adults who are children.

I beg to differ. I have flipped off my child, but I have never punched my child. My incarceration rate reflects this.

To be fair, tw said "I cannot even recall any peer in a bar fight."

The word "even" modified his "recall" and not the bar fight.

Had he said I cannot recall any peer even in a bar fight.; then, your analogy may have been valid.

You should stop flipping off your child. Failure to take proper care in addressing a child is negligence; however, repeated negligence can constitute abuse. Being an adult acting like a child will not get you juvenile offender status.

BTW: I too have never flipped anyone off or been in a bar fight. I've always considered those things to be the purview of little girly men and little boyish women.

This thread was getting boring. I hope this provocative post livens it up a little.

It's an uncanny valley situation. I flipped him off when he was an infant and too young to know what was happening. Now that he's a teenager, I expect to resume flipping him off shortly, because his attachment is fully developed and he understands that my love doesn't hinge on whatever snarky thing causes me to flip him off. Rest assured, when it happens he will have deserved it.

Obviously one does not mean the other. But both are characteristics of adults acting as a child. You have completely reversed the logic to obtain a conclusion that was never stated or even implied.

henry demonstrates what an adult who is a child typically does (ie a Trump supporter, Dice Clay, Timothy McVeigh, suicide bombers who kill in the name of some pagan god, or the type of people that Hitler preached to). Each do things completely different and unrelated. All share a common factor. They are not operate in an adult manner.

Flying the fickle finger of fate was done by adults who actually mock adult children. Only an adult acting like a child does that. Also irrelevant that you did not yet learn. Relevant is that one would teach their child to act in a childish manner. That is unfortunate.

Yeah, bud. I'm the one who's reversed logic. Did you know that black-and-white thinking and arguing in hyperbole are both childish behavior?

Henry, time to expand our vocabulary.

Kakistocracy = A system of government that is run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens.
The word was coined as early as the seventeenth century. It also was used by English author Thomas Love Peacock in 1829, but gained significant use in the first decades of the twenty-first century to criticize populist governments emerging in different democracies around the world.

Kleptocracy = A government of thieves who are stealing everything they can get their mitts on.

You're welcome.

OK. I get it. You only want to argue. Message received.
