Just a few of my random ramblings and myriad musings, midweek:
1. I’m going to watch tonight’s debate, because it’s necessary. I won’t do a drinking game, however, because I think that I would be completely plastered after about 15 minutes! Knowing who the moderator is, and the ‘special guests’ who will be present, this debate will probably go down in history as the absolutely worst one ever…and the first two were bad enough!
2. Speaking of debates, I wonder why some people convince themselves that they engage in ‘debates’ on their blogs, FB pages, or Twitter feeds? There is no way to ‘win’ a debate online, even if you actually utilize a proper debating forum. A ‘proper’ debating forum, to me, is one which contains two people with opposing views, and one or two moderators, taking turns with their statements and rebuttals, face-to-face…with no interruptions or commentary from the respective audience until after the debate is over. Also, a debate should reach an audience with a basic interest, and knowledge, of whatever the debate topic is, it would seem. Making an argument in an echo chamber defeats the purpose of said argument, no? Online, presumably, a proper debate would be done via Skype or whatever other live-video-feed program exists out there. Still, Loki’s Wager will prevail in the long run!
3. I’m personally debating whether or not to pursue legal action against the company that put my computer together, or just not worry about it. I’m beyond done dealing with those clueless asshats, and I’m not the litigious sort – I’d rather just put my money into a brand-new rig and forget about those pricks. That’s the simplest and most cost-effective solution, I feel.
Finally, here are a couple of select clips for your enjoyment…have a great rest of the day and evening, everyone!
