Yes, you did, and still do. To you, “accepting the possibility” means accepting your narrative AND shutting up about any other narratives (such as, what is actually presented in the comic strip, for one). You don’t like anyone who comments on their reactions to the strip such as it is — in this case, that Luann’s demands of Dad seem rude — and you actively seek to shut down those people and accept YOUR narrative instead.
Given that this is your fourth insult to me:
1. that I “clearly” lack imagination.
2. that I am “incapable” of accepting…
3. that I am lazy
4. that I can’t understand what you are saying
…the only conclusion that any thinking person can draw is that you do not have an argument and have to instead resort to put-downs. So, this conversation ends here. It is worth no more of my time.
The question is: Why am I, or anyone here, supposed to accept your imagination as fact? Your posts try to disparage everyone else who is simply seeing the comic for its presented content and commenting based upon what is actually in the strip, and they present your own fanciful off-camera scenario as your justification for that disparagement. THAT is what I am not accepting.
Oh, I have imagination. I imagine you sitting at your computer fuming, trying to think of a grand comeback, and then finally typing the drivel that you typed here above.
But imagination is beside the point here, isn’t it? Bottom line, if it wasn’t in the strip, then your imaginatively thinking up excuses and scenarios for what might have happened before the events in the strip is just that, your imagination. Yet you seem to point to your own imagination as fact in your loud protests. Pretty funny, man.
Look up “Clear Todos”
I love how you constantly make the argument that “oh, all of this other stuff probably happened off-screen either before or after” whatever it is that didn’t actually happen in the strip, and that your imaginative off-screen narrative should explain everything and totally support your stance. You even go so far as to say that “the point” of the strip is whatever you imagined to happen that wasn’t actually in the strip. Hilarious.
That jingle is annoying. Gone are the days of their great pay-it-forward ads that featured songs from the band Hem. Those were inspired.
The thing is, there is not just one single “the app.” There are thousands of them. I use one called Clear. Love it. Super easy, and a whole lot faster than writing on paper.
…he protests as he types his complaint in sans serif font.
Maybe the thesis was “The Continuance of Critical Biological Functions and Their Correlation with Parachute Reliability.”
I’m disappointed. I expected Bernice to say something like “I am typically quite loquacious with my clever, razor-sharp repartee; however, in this particular unguarded moment, I find that I am strangely bereft.”
