Re: Exploring the "Do Nothing Button"
Oh yes. Wonderful joke. Have you used it? Try it. More than once.
There is a story here. This has an actual logical reason for existing.

Re: Exploring the "Do Nothing Button"
The origin of the "Do Nothing Button":
Message 231
There is a discussion of the "Do Nothing Button" starting here:
Message 362
I believe my admin counterpart (Adminnemooseus) was the original creator of the "Do Nothing Button". It initially was just a little blank box. Later I added the "Do Nothing Button" label to it. Finally, Percy broke the thing by causing it to do something.
That's as I remember things. I may be wrong.
In searching for the backstory messages, I found that it seems that AZPaul3 is a big fan of the "Do Nothing Button".

Re: Exploring the "Do Nothing Button"
As I recall the issue was small screens on cell phones and fat fingers on users.
In searching for the backstory messages, I found that it seems that AZPaul3 is a big fan of the "Do Nothing Button".
Indeed I am. The button is a signature feature of EvC. It lets you know the seriousness of this site. We may take ourselves seriously but we're having fun while we're at it. That spirit, that zeitgeist, permeates the whole site.
Moose, you and Percy have done well here. Thank you.

Re: Exploring the "Do Nothing Button"
Reminds me of a small Windows programming exercise. In the window is a button labeled "The Answer to Life". When you try to move the mouse cursor to the button to click on it, the button changes location, always moving away from the mouse cursor. You can never catch it and click on it, so it can never give you the answer that you seek (which it's not programmed to do anyway). Which in itself is the answer to life.

Re: Happy Day
Still illegal here. Will be until becomes legal nation wide

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

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.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?
