It gave me a nasty itch on my little toe.
I complained and they blocked access for my country to their website. The minute they did it my toe did not itch any more.

DO NOT BUY!
Are you sure that's why your girlfriend left you?

Amen!

Have you seen the video of the skinhead girl in the street saying "Feelings are more real than facts, because feelings are once removed from spirit"? You have people who can't tell critical thinking from feelings. Beware.

That's a Leftist protester chick that needs to listen to some Bucky Fuller on technological transcendentalism.

edit: I don't remember where I saw it. A Quick Burn - Roger's Raid - IPOT Presents - 1.26.19 (4:32-5:56).

No, I haven't seen that video, but you know, you can lead a person to logic, but you can't make them think. Some people just aren't built that way.

Some bots are smarter than that too. Some will post (borderline) relevant material for 5 posts just for that reason, then go dormant for months. Suddenly erupting links or propaganda en-mass.

I actually use this for household decisions with my wife. I'm not comparing her to the woman in the video, just saying there is a place. When we need to make a decision we evaluate the choices by: "Logic overrules indecision, but passion overrules logic." By that I mean if one of us has a logical choice that wins over a gut reaction but if one of us is passionate about a choice we try that first over a seemingly logical choice. This all-but eliminates arguments and logic often does win-out.

jakobnev — Thnx. She'd be a lot less scary herself with a hat on.

Seems appropriate to share a perspective I find interesting concerning logic vs emotion.

The Male and Female Mind, by Don W. Stoner

The analogy of "women logic" seems to hold for men too, but we tend to have different thresholds, and certain values such as respect tend to be weighted more highly in the emotional realm.
