If it's "just a fact," how are we supposed to agree or disagree?
It's an opinion of mine that its just a fact.
Actually this post isn't truly serious. It's in reply to a comment by... I wonder if you can guess who.
my guess is fuzala
I truthfully don't know who you're talking about. Is it Vic's comment about all "facts" being opinions, because I really liked that perspective.
Great guess! But it's the one below this comment.
I take it back. Not that comment. Below this comment.
Dang it! Now not that comment but this one.
quit while you're ahead
I assure you that she knows who you were referring to
I know she does but my comments are falsified when she replies lol. Just having some fun with the one who led me on a wild goose chase for something I forget (evidence for this post).
she wouldn't tell you how to make the peace emoticon LOLOL
you're not an accurate representation of males
nor am I an accurate representation of females
THIS IS ALL MADE UP
I know that. The fossil record isn't an accurate representation of the evolution of species. It's evidence for it though.
but they use more than one fossil record
they don't go off of just one
Isn't there just one fossil record? The record of all fossils ever found?
I meant each individual fossil
they don't just look at one fossil
there are multiple fossils
just like claims about people aren't based on one person
they're based on multiple people
Oh ok. Well yeah, this "evidence" is rather anecdotal. I wonder if there is any actual research out there that can support this post. I made it jokingly but now I'm curious...
and give me a 10 page thesis by Wednesday
Wait so the person under yours?
Nooo my comment is in the wrong spot
... I see what you're doing...
😬😬😬 looks like it's time for me to split
Still bitter about that, Fuzala
well it's a good thing I like bitter, then
Sorta related, I actually wrote a report about caffeine and related things, and I found out that people's taste buds taste bitterness to different degrees. Generally, people who like bitter things actually taste it like 75%-50% less than people who dislike it. Or something like that
I don't actually like bitter food
I like bitter people
I'm not a cannibal ._.
so the taste thing doesn't apply
I knew of the taste bud thing
like there's this bitter gourd
my mom made some for lunch
and it was nasty bitter
and my parents were munching on it like it was delicious
they didn't like it when they were young either
when my cousin was young
she didn't like it
but now she does
so maybe you taste the bitter less and less with age
so males are physically stronger
everyone always agrees to that for the most part
so what is the trait females have that is agreed upon by most?
Dem brains do!
Sexual dimorphism doesn't work like that. There's no balance. As far as science on the subject goes, men and women are typically equal as far as intelligence goes. Men are typically better at working with things, and women are typically better at working with people.
More muscle mass is just a thing we have. Fortunately, as technology progresses, muscle mass loses its worth.
way to burst my bubble
I know. I'm just joking.
Comment wasn't directed at you, bruh.
Hmmm... I'm sleepy...
In my experience everyone remembers things differently then I remember them, not better, just differently.
As a man I can tell you the beauty of memory is in the selecting.
Some women are smarter than some men, and some men are smarter than some women. Memory is not a sexual trait. Ken Jennings achieved the highest level on Jeopardy of any contestant ever. Clearly he was a male. The game tests players memory.
It is said that women are better drivers than men, but I would even challenge that one. Most professional race car drivers are men. And usually when I am cut off on a road while driving it is by a woman on her phone or doing hair or make-up! Just a real life observation.
most cases of road rage and cutting off are by males
females are better at controlling their anger
males are more confrontational on the road
Who said anything about road rage?????
out of all I said, that's all?
cutting people off is connected to road rage
I gave a personal example that you ignored. I specifically look who is driving another vehicle every time I am cut off, pulled out in front of, turning without a signal, etc. MORE TIMES THAN NOT - it is a female driver! If that does not fit your scenario, sorry. But that is a real life, real world example. I happens quite regularly.
I have the REAL LIFE experiences as well
and it's usually a male driver
it happens quite regularly
the stats back up that females tend to be more careful
as I said
males tend to be more impulsive and take more risks
"Insurance companies view women as better drivers. Check it out." My reply to John saying he did not know where you heard women are better drivers. Shows clearly that I acknowledge it is common knowledge that women are viewed as safer drivers. Are they better? Again, I cited professional race car drivers are predominantly MALE. So that has to factor in to your computer stats somewhere.
What does racecar driving have to do with it? Racecar drivers crash all the time.
Comparing racecar driving to the driving done by the average person in everyday life just doesn't work.
Insurance polices as well as people talking about better drivers refer to the everyday, average kind of driving.
Not some extreme driving done by racecar drivers
Again, not in the mood to butt heads with your opposing views. Our brains are very clearly wired differently, as are our perspectives. You could not make me see it your way on your best day. I could not convince you on my best day. So I respect your right and opinion to vary from mine. Makes life more colorful.
I'm not butting heads. No one said people have to agree all the time. That's all I'm doing. Providing my "different view" Doing so isn't butting heads. It's a shame you think expressing another view is considered butting heads.
Maybe if you saw things as mere differences in opinion instead of butting heads you would be in the mood to have these discussions more often.
Ok, up from my nap. I view a constant challenge and opposing of every word or opinion I hold to as "head butting." You obviously do not. So we disagree.
And I don't expect you to agree with me all the time, or even most of the time. But I also don't expect you to challenge or defy every single opinion I hold and push it to the limit until I somehow reach a point of crying "uncle" to you. That is what I mean by you always having to be right. A difference of opinion does not constantly tell the other person they are wrong - it generally only means viewing something from a different angle, light, or perspective.
Discussions are "friendly" and head butting contests are non productive. I enjoy discussions and even debates as long as the tone is beneficial. If I believe I am being attacked, belittled, insulted, or impugned - then yes, my mood flares and I will defend my position. You defend yours without any hesitation and you refuse to take NO for an answer.
Sorry I mirror your traits to the point of you not approving. I will watch what I respond to from you in the future.
None of that has to do with what I said. Your comment is filled with jabs at me. I can't take "no" for an answer? What? If I have something that relates to the argument, I'm gonna present it. That's not refusing to take no for answer. That's called replying to a claim with another claim.
You have tons of opinions. There's no way I've challenged even a quarter of them so I don't know why you go down that route.
Try to find the word "wrong" in any of my comments here. Not once did I say you're wrong. Nor did I belittle, etc.
All I did was give examples. If you view that negatively, there's nothing I can do. I do that with pretty much everyone else on here. Pretty much the only one who has a problem is...well you know
I didn't say anything about approval. I just said you're off topic. Instead of replying to what I say, you bring up things about your perception of someone's personality. We're not talking about me. We're talking about who's the better driver. Go ahead and throw jabs at me, but at least tie it back to what we're talking about.
In other words, please do not claim to know what I approve of or claim to know what I am thinking. I'm not walking around saying "I'm right. I'm 100% right. You're wrong"
The whole point of this site is to talk about opinions. Why in the world would I hide, stifle, or keep my opinions to myself whether they agree or disagree with a person?
Try this one more time - IF women were in fact BETTER drivers, as I clearly gave the example, they would be dominant in all automobile driving events - especially race car driving. Race car driving requires the best of the best. You claim that women are better drivers and yet there are very few in the professional auto world - where it counts and shows BEST.
You keep telling me that my example is not valid and that it does not relate to day to day drivers, but again, if you are going to claim women are in fact the best, then you should be able to PROVE it by the example I have cited. You can not, so my point is valid and credible.
I conceded that women may be more CAREFUL drivers - but careful does not make them better or the best. If you don't acknowledge or see it this way - fine with me. That is MY opinion and I am sticking to it.
Driving really fast while turning left doesn't make someone the best either.
But are women doing it better? Nope!
I don't think either makes them better drivers. I think driving carefully makes one a more careful driver while racecar driving makes one a better racecar driver. Neither make them better drivers because there are different types of driving.
All still driving and all still in automobiles
There were no qualifiers in Fuz's statement. Totally broad and matter of FACT!
Seems to me you ignored everything I said. I clearly said this is my OPINION, not a fact.
You're projecting your own thoughts onto me yet again.
Nope - not talking to you..........so no projecting.
ignored the first part of my sentence, eh?
where I say "Seems to me you ignored everything I said. I clearly said this is my OPINION, not a fact."
Not talking to me, but talking ABOUT me
You're projecting your own "I always have to be right" mentality onto me
and before you make some accusations and more jabs
that is my opinion
not a fact
and I'm not saying I'm right
or that I have to be right
I'm not you
ladies and gentlemen
note that he ignored everything but the last line
I reserve the right to ignore at will. Kind of nice to be able to pick and choose what we will or will not address. People do it to me on this site all the time. It is part of the word game that people love to play.
females are better drivers because they tend to be more careful
males take more impulsive decisions and take more risks on the road
I don't know where you heard that women are better drivers lol!
Usually the stereotypes I hear are that women and Asians are the worst drivers. And female Asians? cringe
No but really, this post is sarcastic and was in reply to a comment by fuzala. I don't accept stereotypes generally.
you better clarify exactly what comment I made lest he gets the wrong idea
You can handle it
I made a comment that indicated that I have good memory
JJ's ex-wife whose age gap was within the same year
"JJ's [faux] ex-wife..."
I actually said imaginary
still don't trust a word you say
Didn't say imaginary in that particular comment
I know I said imaginary
JJ's ex-wife whose age gap was within the same year"
"Imaginary" is not to be found
I meant in the original comment
I said imaginary
I remember because I thought of foster's home for imaginary friends when I typed that comment
I was talking about the specific comment aimed towards freespeach.
but you used the wrong adjective
there's a significant difference
They both work. The ex was fake and made up in my mind.
but I viewed her as more imaginary than faux
because I assumed the scenario was some sort of fantasy or story ideas of yours that played out in your head before
Never before. Regardless, still fake, no?
the connotations attached just aren't the same
I can see faux fur
I can't see imaginary fur
I can see your fake wife
you could just say hey that girl over there is your wife
or here's a picture of your wife
I could see her
but she would be a fake wife
your imaginary wife is in your mind
I can't see her
I'm not doing definitions with you anymore. Imaginary... Wife...
I just gave excellent examples
you just can't admit you're wrong
I don't think something has to be tangible to be fake
I'm just telling you what the words mean to me
and how I used them in this context
IMAGINARY....wife. Lets just go with that
Insurance companies view women as better drivers. Check it out.
Huh. Maybe it's because not many women buy insurance lol jk
and I wonder why you bring up smarts?
last time I checked
memory isn't significantly correlated with smarts
nobody said memory is a sexual trait
physical strength is not a sexual trait
BUT males tend to be physically stronger even if it's not a sexual trait
