Genius Reply? That would be rare but not unheard of at EvC.

This has to be it, it is all about your intentions.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

Hover over the button, but point made.

I know this is the humor thread, but let me ask: Do people care about the graphical buttons, like "New Thread" or "Gen Reply" (short for General Reply)? Or the ones at the bottom of each message, like "profile", "mail", "edit", etc. What if they were just plain text buttons?

I like the graphical buttons

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

They work well as they are - easier to find than simple text. And with some of our members having visual impairments, that helps, I'm sure.

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Trump
Adopted from http://www.news24.com/...ny-joke-about-donald-trump-20170215

After Donald Trump became US President he went on a fact-finding visit to Israel. While he was on a tour of Jerusalem he suffered a heart attack and died.

The undertaker told the American secret service agents who were accompanying him, 'You can have him shipped home for $50,000, or you can bury him here in the Holy Land, for just $100.'

The secret service agents went into a corner and discussed this for a several minutes. They came back to the undertaker and told him they wanted the president shipped home.

The undertaker was puzzled and asked, 'Why would you spend $50,000 to ship him home, when it would be wonderful to be buried here, in the Holy Land, and you would spend only $100?'

The secret service agents replied, 'A long time ago a man died here, was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. We just can't take that risk.'

That's the implausible part of the story. Trump would never go anywhere looking for facts. They're all in his head already.

Not humor, just art. The thing was playing badly for me, but maybe will work better for others.
