You get called on your bullshit and we get the typical science-pretender buzzword rhetoric: "unconventional", "outside the box". :roll:

Go open an herbal medicine or magnetic healing stone shop or something.

Stewart, please give me a real example of some of the past work your company has done. And by that I mean things like:

Project names
Project detales
Start/completion dates
Clients
Etc...

Actually there is no attendance requirement in Australian universities either (excluding of course tutes and pracs). Lecturers are come-if-you-want affairs.

:lol: Is anyone honestly surprised by this? Honestly?

Stewart, your ignorance is showing yet again. You cannot solve problems if you don't understand the basic concepts involved.

Quote:

I thought you said you were paid a salary of thousands of dollars a week for your work. Why would anyone who isn't in high demand, and who doesn't even have a frickin' office building want to pay you to do the minimal amount of thinking you've shown yourself capable of?

Quote:
Why would we want to talk to large numbers of people with the same ideas? The value of anything is inversly porportional to the number of people selling it.


Obviously you're a frickin' moron. If you work for a god damn company, the clients pay your COMPANY to solve the problem for them. YOU are then paid by the company, but the client shouldn't give a fuck about whether it took ten thousand people to come up with something or just one. If it works, great, and they pay the fee.

The other reason why you'll talk to someone else is because they're going to help you solve the problem in the first place. And, BTW, you claimed that if I sent you a request to do some work then your mysterious employer would send me a list of PEOPLE and THEIR qualifications, who would then work on my problem. It seems your lies are piling up on you, doesn't it Mr. Expert?

Quote:

The only shop in town, but that assumes that I could do a job as effectively as I could if I was one of several shops that all produced the same products so we could specialize in working in different sub-fields. For example, let's say I owned a bike shop. I COULD work on mountain bikes, racing bikes, city-bikes, dirt/stunt bikes, etc., OR I could have a shop that made city bikes while other stores made the rest. In this way, we could sacrifice TOTAL market share in order to specialize in a particular field, lowering both labor and machinery costs and therefore increasing productivity.

Considering that i wont win squat with even that amount of money when all expenses are covered in just getting there, it still isnt worth my time.
Truly Stewart, im confident in my research when i know that information is coming from legitimate sources, and from own experience. So far, you have NOT shown to have information from legitimate and reliable sources nor own experience on ANYTHING.

Quote:
This is typical of people with no real expiriance. They read something somewere and think it applies to everyone everwere. Do more research. A friend of mine has a Raven .22 miniature pocket pistol with a 2" barrel. If anyone there is willing to give me odds in porportion to the differance in barrel lengths between my H.S. .22 with 7.5" BBL and Geo's 2" gun, I'll put up another C-note to your $350 on that wager.


This is damn hilarious. Get this to your head moron, the maximum effective range of a weapon/round is not selective on who is using the weapon/round. Its a statistical fact. And i wouldnt be talking about this subject if i didnt have my own experience at that area. I've been shooting with .45 weapons all the way from the DE .45 to Glock .45 guns at targets in ranges from 15 to 50 meters, and i can be pretty sure about the validity of those specificational facts.
I have done all the research i need, and every single piece of information i have found ANYWHERE about this matter points out that you are flat out spatting bullshit. Since essentially, you are overcoming the maximum effective range of the rounds.

Stewart boy, what you can do in your dreams and what you can do in reality are two different things. And you have shown your "knowledge" or more accurately your lack of it, quite clearly.

Anyone notice that as the thread progresses, Stewie's spelling and grammar get worse and worse. For that matter, the grammatical and spelling skills of Mike's opponents in general seem to be getting worse as time goes on...I think I've counted (so far) 3 different ways Stewie has spelled the word "Magnitude", just as one example.

1. Do you know what ESCROW is?

2. You'll be posting account and routing numbers you say? Aside from the hilarious escrow mistake...you ummm...probably don't. But truly you might as well invite Bubba to violate you while you grab your ankles.

3. I see you need a binding contract and it's within a process of how long are you prepared to wait?

And oh RFH gets to spend $15 American to confirm this....this gets better and better.

Stop using words you don't know, and if you honestly want to challenge these people on something set up a Paypal account, dumbshit.

Stew certainly reminds me of somebody on the web who claimed that he is a "enginreer masters" who's going to work for "british aarow space". :lol:

On the otherhand: Is it just my imagination, or has anybody else noticed inconsistencies with Stew's spelling? It seems to be little better than alphabet diarrhea one minute ( :D ), and normal the next. Think he's getting outside help?

C'mon Stewart, I already promised up the money plus plane ticket if you want to come down. My time window before deployment is short and I cant wait forever to see if you're actually going to come down or not. Let' go already ro do you have to shoot at your range and are somehow afraid that coming aboard Lejeune would cause your pistol to malfunction?

But you didn't offer to pay the plane ticket for his mommy, daddy, or babysitter, so he can't come by himself.

I mean, he obviously needs help crossing the street, so getting on a plane would be most difficult for him

You know Stewart, I had a Mafia hitman contact me the other day to offer his services and he described his business in the exact same way (although he put quotes around the word "problem"). Funny how that works isn't it?

Probably because he gave us the Home Adress of "Kit S. Davies"

Can anybody be so stupid?
Shall we phone Kit Davies and tell him what his Son is doing? (No doubt Stewie will tell us he is Kit Steward Davies, but who will believe that?)

I don't gamble, but he strikes me as the really stubborn type. He'll probably be back. I don't know if he'll go another round with Mike, but he probably will. Its not like the other times have affected him much. :wink:

Someone SHOULD phone that number.

If it's some stupid kid (odds are), imagine his parents reactions to him saying 'send me money' and POSTING HIS ADDRESS on the internet.

If he's an adult, that's either his mom, who will tell him to get a job, or his wife, who would learn what a brain-dead morun he is.

Either way, he loses, and we all get a good laugh

Anyone from that area code?

Bhahahahahahahhah. I've been reading this and the debate thread and have enjoyed it to a high degree. But I couldn't resist posting a laugh at this, this is just too good to not publicly laugh at.
