Furthermore, as the OP only specifically mentions "shootings" it is incumbent upon the challenger, in this case myself, to demonstrate that the OP intended not only to compare himself being frivolously castigated for taking a chess timeout with "shootings" but was also, by incidental implication, was comparing the said frivolity with a broader range of even worse contemporary horrors. I felt that to attempt this would have been presumptive and provocative on my part.

    Still no explicit condemnation of Hitler, Stalin or Mao from you, I notice.

    Your choosing to ignore my explanation and your subsequent introduction of "hitler" as a debating tactic into this Internet discussion...noted.

    I note without need for further comment that you have used a small 'h' for Hitler.

    You have simply brushed over the fact that Stalin was mentioned too, Noted.

    But I notice you didn't tackle me for not mentioning Mao when I mentioned Stalin in response to the way divegeester mentioned Hitler. People will make of it what they will.

    I note that your introduction of "hitler" into the this thread has triggered the phantom down-thumber into action.

    I noticed you didn't mention my ex-wife.
    Curious.

    I see "the phantom down-thumber" as a C21st problem and therefore felt it appropriate to leave her (or him) off the C20th list I cited.

    Your ability to get a member of the opposite sex to co-habit with you remains a rumour.

    Just because he claims to have had an ex-wife doesn't mean anyone ever co-habited with him. He could have been married by Sun Myung Moon in a football stadium along with 4,000 other Moonies and never gotten within 100 yards of his alleged Korean spouse.


    You know the rules here, Freaky: pix, or it never happened!

    I believe he did have a pic, but alas, it was heavily edited by NASA.

    Edit: For no apparent reason.
