So the point I am trying to make: Is there any point in separating truths, which I suspect are mostly opinions? I don't think so. Instead, I would solely look at facts that everyone can agree on. "This house does have more square footage than that house."
Facts. Correct.

There's a difference between square footage, and square footage of living space.

HUD mathematical acrobatics for calculating "fair market value" (snicker) for HUD Section 8 units is based in part on total square feet of living space and total square feet of the apartment. The percent difference is used as modifier to calculate "fair market value" (snicker).


Anyway, someone can have a larger home, but less living space.

It was only in his mind, or he was just playing you, since he knows you're gullible.

If prisms were gateways to other dimensions, don't you think scientists would have figured that out decades ago?

Not very entertaining.

They fail to understand that their beliefs are based upon ancient superstitions which have all been disproved.

Wolf ugly (you would rather chew off your arm so you don't accidentally wake her up).

Like I said. It was an anomaly. Scientists only look at things they can reproduce & use as tools. They can't do that with anomalies because the anomalies own science & break all its rules; instead of science owning the anomaly '& using it for their own agendas

Where would this forum be if it were not true that "facts can be misleading?"

Or confusing or misunderstood or not what you want them to be?

The truth is the truth, however, regardless, and to whatever extent anyone can truly distinguish the truth from the nonsense is what tends to divide those who speak the truth from those who speak the nonsense...

As long as there's a breath of life in his body, the OP's o'erweening ego will not allow his baby to die.

It's nearly as amusing as it is pathetic to watch him keep resurrecting it.

Always nice when a moderator should make such a comment, again noting just a slight bit of negativity just like when I first introduced these truths, but that's okay I suppose...

Fact is, I started this thread and many people have commented one way or another about this topic since I started it. All perfectly okay with me no matter the comments. What I hoped for anyway, but I signed off from this forum a couple weeks ago and others posted here since then. Just now catching up with hopes -- contrary to yours -- this thread might breath on just a bit longer.

Don't see much harm in that myself, but clearly there are people who would rather be insulting rather than add something substantive (and please don't suggest all that can be commented has been commented about such a subject).

Please have mercy...

Not sure I'd even be back, but I read this email upon my return this morning, and I have to admit, I felt encouraged to return. I thought maybe it was from you mensaguy! (But I guess not).

I have never really paid much attention to the reps or points, but I got a kick out of the misspelling in the subject line of all places, in a standard company marketing email. Some real professionalism there, no doubt, but the marketing really does work either way! A kick in any case...

If everyone followed me as much or as close as you do, I'd be flattered, but of course in your case it's more like being followed by a bad smell impossible to shake. Haven't you got plenty enough other victims to attend to?

And why this time no really cute popcorn munching video you are always so proud to display whenever you can? Getting lazy?

Thanks! Thought you were slipping there for a second...

Anything wrong with how I choose to wear my panties?!?

Ah! It's so good to be back!
