Who cares if anyone is self aware? Seriously, I hear that term thrown around a lot, but it means nothing. "Bob's not very self aware." "Mary must have no self awareness."

Who gives a fuck whether anyone is self-aware or not? How is this even an insult? If a person says something, why would I even care if he or she is self aware? I'd listen to what the person said, process it, and if it required reply, reply. If not, say nothing.

You talk about self awareness like it's some supreme virtue. What's of interest is only whether the thing said is accurate and well considered. It's always fair to say "That's fucking bullshit" or "You didn't think that out very well." You can attack the thing said any way you like on its merits. But to say the speaker lacks self awareness means, I think in your head, that the speaker should know better than to say the thing he said regardless of whether the thing said is accurate or not. It's a bullshit metric allowing you to criticize someone for saying something probably true but impolitic.

This sort of squishy criticism makes a slop of conversations by focusing on the alleged tone deafness of an analysis, or whether the speaker "cares" enough, rather than whether the analysis is accurate. Somebody did it couple days ago, saying that to assert Trump succeeded in his amoral approach to the Mueller probe made me somehow amoral. That's silly. The game afoot there was political. Politics is often amoral. To say that Trump out-gamed the Democrats there is simply a factual observation. By hiring Barr, he did so. It was an unusually smart and well considered strategy move on his part. That's just reality. If saying so demonstrates lack of self awareness, what would demonstrate self awareness? To instead say something that wasn't factual but showed "caring" or empathy with people offended by Trump?
Ha ha!!! Wow! That is a cray cray rant even by your standards. Anyhoo, all I meant by you lacking self awareness is that you are so self-absorbed and delusional that you are unable to understand that people are not actually all that impressed with your brain-dead cock juggling, and that it is actually quite alienating to many. That's all. I would try respond to whatever point you were trying to make in the rest of your unhinged rambling, except I didn't read any of it.

I'm so fucking angry. At the whole fucking thing.

And now wondering if there is any way that Arizona, Virginia or Florida could get the ERA ratified to at least throw a monkey wrench into the whole thing.

A low rent r/e developer from Queens, with shit for brains, gets you in a lather. Who's the sucker at that table?

I doubt it. The full extent of Barr's lies hasn't come out yet. That, coupled with Mueller's testimony which will include the recent stuff just released regarding Flynn's cooperation, along with this Roe situation, is going to award Biden a landslide win.

Do not assume that when voting!

I'm not yet convinced that Biden will be the nominee either.

I get it. Totally. And if I were spectating at that marathon, I would have shouted, "You're awesome!" Then I would have shouted, "And by 'you' I mean the joggling guy. Not the jackhole running next to or near him who is pretending all the cheering is for him." This would take a while to shout and I would probably have to run next to you and the joggler for a bit to get it all out, but I would do that. Because, like you, I have a passion for clarity.

I get it, but this seems to directly contradict your past positions on jugglers:

"I understand your argument, but I used to tangentially know some juggling types back in the day, and they were awful human beings. Constantly trying to interject their juggling into EVERY social situation, even when it was inappropriate to do so, which it was in EVERY social situation."

So really your position on jugglers is not clear at all. Are you the board's Lindsey Graham?

2. You don't want to wait until the end of the race to clear it up for Coltrane, cuz you'll have to wait for a very long long time.....

ZING!

A guy who runs a marathon while juggling is awesome. A guy who, with his friend, plans a "spontaneous" juggling performance at a party, all the while acting as if he never expected he would be called upon to show off his juggling skills EVEN THOUGH HE JUST HAPPENED TO HAVE ALL HIS JUGGLING SHIT WITH HIM AT THE PARTY, is an awful person.
