I am a healthy retired physician in Miami Florida USA.

BrainMop.png As a confirmed mustard jar for taking on this job as a Sysop on RationalWiki: I, Purebread, pledge to only block users if they ask for it, or insert unfunny vandalism.
I furthermore pledge that if I indulge in secret private conversations about you, we will make a formal report to the mob. Is that all?
If you impugn my motives without warrant, or challenge my "AUTHORITY", er, there is nothing I can or will do.

Penned by the famous George Bernard Shaw


SOMEWHERE or other—I think it is in the preface to Saint Joan, George Bernard Shaw remarks that we are more gullible and superstitious today than we were in the Middle Ages, and as an example of modern credulity, he cites the currently widespread belief that the earth is round. The average man, says Shaw, can advance not a single reason for thinking that the earth is round. He merely swallows this theory because there is something about it that appeals to the twentieth-century mentality. [1] [2]

An unavoidable verbal contention

  • Martin's Law::
If during an online argument, anyone accuses their interlocutor of living in their parents' basement, the argument is over and the accuser has lost.
  • Martin's Law, Reflexive Corollary
If during an online argument, anyone accuses their interlocutor of living in their parents' basement, the accuser has identified themselves as exactly the sort of internet troll who may well live in their parents' basement.
[3]
Conjectures that a person doesn't have a girlfriend, doesn't shower, or has acne - based solely on the position they take in an argument - are all variants, AND Martin's Law should apply.
