ciscop you're so funny.

I asked kevin about studies because he said in a recent post he would provide that info, but apparently he forgot.

Maybe kevin needs to start his own forum where only he is allowed to post. Even then I can see that his forum would have heated flame wars over trolling.

I posted standard medical information. It's backed up by studies. If you find the information questionable, take it up with the medical community and government who recommend the information. But your "I'm skeptical of everything you say" act is tedious, inappropriate and mal-intentioned (trolling).

Actually you posted a case study. Then you made claims about the death of Sagan for which you have no evidence. You were told that case studies were no longer used. You said you'd post modern studies supporting your claim. You went on to post something other than studies. You cherry picked from that information to support your position.

You don't think people should challenge other people? This is an open forum and I do ask questions and I do ask for people to support their ideas. Your free to ask me or anyone else questions. Your free to challenge any of my postings, or anyone other person's for that matter.

Don't forget Kevin you post this lie right before the Sagan death malarkey and we spent 4 pages of this thread trying to get you to tell the truth and you refused to admit that this lie was not supported by the paper you referenced.
1 in 4 cancer treatment deaths are caused or sped up by chemo


See if you told the truth like admitted that you got this info from other liar on the web and you didn't check the link, then we'd have been done in 1 post. Instead you refused to admit that the quote above is stupid and an often repeated lie.

If anyone is trolling it has to be you.
From http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=troll
One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument


The second definition from the site also describes the attacks on Randi, which was locked due to name calling.
One who purposely and deliberately (that purpose usually being self-amusement) starts an argument in a manner which attacks others on a forum without in any way listening to the arguments proposed by his or her peers. He will spark of such an argument via the use of ad hominem attacks (i.e. 'you're nothing but a fanboy' is a popular phrase) with no substance or relevence to back them up as well as straw man arguments, which he uses to simply avoid addressing the essence of the issue.


As you said in another thread, "in our country" there is a claim that the attacker is also a victim. So now you'd like to be a victim. Fine, that your opinion. I think the facts indicate that's not the case.

this weekend
i met a friend´s girlfriend that was charmed by my stupid comments
every 5 minutes, she was like ¨you are soo funny... you are superfunny¨..
and that went along all night
so i decided to try out a simple suggestion the next time she laughed at something i said..
when she was laughing and saying.. ¨you are so funny.. ¨...
i reached to her and whisper into her ear
¨am i so funny, that you could pee your pants?¨

AND SHE DID !!!.. a stream of wetness starting to run down her knee..

hahahahahahahaha

and yeah.. my friend is mad at me because he got to carry the girl home and didnt got anything that night
because she was ashamed of what happened.. hahahahaha

still i think it was worth it

WTF? NPL FTW. LOL.
Hey, you there. Yes, you. Read more journal articles.

If what I say sounds like the teacher from Charlie Brown (Wah wahh woohh wuh waah), then you should try college. It's fun, and only costs you your soul and several tens of thousands of dollars. :)

I'd just like to say on the subject of Vangelis that the music for "Cosmos" was your basic space synth stuff....sounds cheesy now, but was acceptable for a PBS science documentary in 1980. The book was much better than the show; I read it in a weekend as a kid. Endlessly interesting stuff.

As for CETI, it was never given long enough to do the job.....with the size of the Milky Way galazy, it would take at least two centuries to find a signal at the rate they were going. Newt Gingrich was an idiot.
