I argue very well. Ask any of my remaining friends. I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don't even invite me. You too can win arguments. Simply follow these rules:
.....
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

That was pretty good! :lol:

I really like the punch line "Do not try to pull any of this on people who generally carry weapons." . The old trump card!

JamieW is very good at this. You especially don't want to get in a debate or argument with him because he does carry weapons. I seem to be immune because I really don't care enough about most things to actually argue about them.

I will give the credit to the greatest teacher of this type of argument ever. My mother.
A man has been charged after allegedly punching a 73-year-old woman in the face, breaking her nose and stabbing her in the arm with a corkscrew before hitting a second woman with a bottle at a wedding reception in the Whitsunday Islands.

Yes, she is the master. Her voice alone makes me want to run away and not argue with her.

Don't tell her I said that....

Telling her you said that would require voluntary conversation.
