Uncool,  trying to dance with a pig will just frustrate you plus it annoys the pig.
Sometimes you just want to know how pigs dance.
I get it. Dave is a curious specimen for sure.

Dave, your complete failure to encounter reality is bad enough to consider a delusional illness.

I forget who it was but I remember the incident. The point was how to make a prediction and give the supporting argument. It was specifically about why predictions are not prophesy.
Lol no. The point was how awful she thinks Trump is.
you are an idiot dave. OIf course that was the point you read into it. You only understand chearleading, aka preaching.
No I didn't read anything into it. That's what she thinks and that's what you guys have been saying ever since Trump got elected.
Here and in his next post.

Dunno. I'm having trouble tracking the conversation before it on mobile.
I don't have the energy. It crossed multiple threads as I remember and Dave has already made my point.

maybe 5:45? It happens kind of a lot though where it hangs on me loading a page.

For several weeks now I've been getting page not loading issues which have resolved usually within maybe 10-30 seconds. Today, I checked is it down for everyone and it was, indeed, down for everyone. Is this a miserable user hack or is there a hosting issue?

It's also fun watching you guys's failed predictions. The most spectacular one is going to be the one about Trump not being in office in January of 2019. That was a howler.
again, this is an example of why you are an idiot. You believe in stories. It's not whether they turn out to be right or wrong. It's that you believe your favorites without caring.

And, yes. Dave sucks at science because he believes stories.
There's a general rule, that's just as valid for politics as it is for science: When your story needs more and more conspiracy theories to work, it's time to start looking for a new story.
It's a straight up ability to learn thing, when you accept hypotheses as true, you don't look for their errors. You close your mind. Dave's mind is locked up tight.

Lol. Dave only sees someone arguing for vaguely the the same thing he's cheerleading for so all he sees is "yeah! Take that!"

To stop a bad guy with a gun you have to wait til you know he's a bad guy by the fact that he opens fire on innocent civilians.

KJU will meet with Trump.  And he will denuclearize. Why? Certainly not because Trump told him to. Why then? But because Xi told him to.  Why did Xi tell him to? Because Trump was the first president in decades to be smart enough to know the Leverage that we have against China economically. Trump used that leverage and Xi did his bidding. Notice how Trump forced Xi's hand but let him save face. Very few will know the full details of how Trump pulled this off and that's a good thing.

Brilliantly played, Mr. Trump.
One aspect of you sucking at science is you believe stories.

And this has ...  what to do with ... whose "head rolling"  ?  :dunno:

Or is this now the official Dave Hawkins Mindlessly Rebroadcasts The Latest From The Conservative Play Pen thread?
This is "ever hopeful Dave" hoping that the Darwin debased Minds here will one day wake up and realize how stupid they have been in their assessment of Donald Trump.
My assessment of Donald Trump is capable of allowing that he may not be a total failure in everything he touches. Particularly regarding Korea.  That doesn't make him anything like a good thing. Also, all you've done is posted an infographic with a hypothesis.
I cannot think of a better hypothesis. Can you?
That doesn't make yours true. This is why you suck at science.
Of course it doesn't make mine true.
Oh, good, at least you have figured that out. But ...
But it makes it the best hypothesis that either one of us can come up with, does it not? 
Um, no. I can't figure out how you managed to leap from your first statement to this. It appears your only argument in favor of this conclusion is that you "cannot think of a better hypothesis." which has little to do with the validity of anything. You can't think of a lot of things, it doesn't follow that simply because you can't think of them they do not exist or are not valid. It may come as a shock to you, but reality is not dependent upon your imagination, knowledge, or thoughts.
And the only reason you keep saying I suck at science is because someone in whom you have placed misplaced trust says so. And the reason you trust her is because she is a very slick writer and persuader.
Actually no. Assuming you are referring to Pingu or perhaps Borealis. You might want to review this and other threads wherein many other posters have noted this. Indeed, I'm pretty sure the phrase "you suck at science" may well have come from either Vox or Testy or maybe someone else. I do not believe it originated with either of the two ladies, though it's possible it did. Regardless of its origin, I'm pretty sure all of us in the Darwin Club, as you like to refer to us, pretty much independently share that opinion. You eschew measurements and record keeping. You blindly and doggedly seek out only that which you think supports you, using a technique that is fraught with potential misunderstanding and misapplication. You make no effort whatsoever to minimize your personal biases, indeed, you go to great lengths to amplify them. You blatantly ignore any questions regarding your assumptions, methodology and conclusions. And you hold strikingly idiotic beliefs along with apparently ascribing to the notion that the strength on one's beliefs are a reflection of their validity.

In other words, about as unscientific as could be. About as obviously sucking at science as could be. Obvious to virtually anyone with a working knowledge of science and the world.

No, you are not BRILLIANT and no, you do not possess a mind that runs circles around others. You are mired in the muck of beliefs that stem from ancient myths. As well as your own ego.

At first I worried that having you explain my post would spoil some of the fun of having dave not understand my subtler criticism but then I remembered that dave is an idiot and won't understand even if it's explained.

"Not sure why you are slobbering all over an NBC report which reports an outcome and has nothing to do with what lead to that outcome and hence nothing to do with what role Trump had to play, whether positive or negative."

Yes, I know you're not sure. In fact "not sure" doesn't do it justice. You are completely clueless about how Trump pulled that off.

But if you had been reading Sundance for the past year or so, you would have a clue.
