  1. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    I am prone to rhetorical flourishes.



    Possibly.



    Well, in a criminal prosecution, the plaintiff is the state, not the victim. The complaint is filed by the state. An accuser is not the...

    Re: Mind Trapped by: "Womans" sports

    A transgendered man is a woman at birth that identifies as a man.

    Do you actually know this or is this simply an unsubstantiated claim on your part?

  9. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    No, my approach to this is to look at what I know or have seen and make a tentative judgement based on that. I try not to claim anything for sure. I critique and challenge ideas folks put forth, and...
  10. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    True. I was just trying to narrow it down to what I thought was the most plausible.

    So, I watched both their opening statements. My motivation tends to be to take folks at face value until I see a reason not to. So, can be bad at spotting good liars.

    Frankly, I feel like it has taken a decided turn for the worse. The other gents are doing a fine job rebutting your points so I'll leave them to it.
  14. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    She was at a party, but she didn't recall who's house it was. That's not too surprising given the span of time and that it was a college drinking party of some kind.

    And she wasn't raped, just...
  15. Re: Mind Trapped by: Supreme court nominations and sexual assault accusations

    So you are saying its possible she was having a grand old time at the party, but later remembers herself almost getting raped? That seems far fetched to me. Memory of details and events can be...

  17. Re: Mind Trapped by: Self driving Cars, it's social effects.

    My immediate family is pretty small. My wife and I only had two cars when we first married since we each had one. Once mine died (she had a Honda so it was inevitable she'd win) we just had one ever...
  18. Re: Mind Trapped by: Self driving Cars, it's social effects.
