No it doesn't. An adult is someone who provides for themselves and takes on responsibility. IE age doesn't make you more of an adult. Experience and maturity do.

I'll tell you what's not very adult like though; Calling someone a kid just because you don't like what they have to say .

I don't expect a constructive comment in response to this.. You've clearly outlined that your only means of retaliation in this scenario was to try and demean me as less of a person in comparison to 4628 extra days you've had to marinate on anime forums. But do continue! It's pretty funny honestly.


Oh yeah keep going there. You're amusing me with your "serious" response (quoting you)

He opened the choose file option, slected an image and pressed post. It takes less than 30 seconds to do all of that. Methinks you don't need to care too much for sych a small time investment.


You know what... I have just now noticed that he was the one asking people "what do you think?" in the original post!

LOL I was kind enough to give an answer and this what I get!

He has zero idea what being "an adult" entails.

Haha hey! You went there! I'm just honestly surprised you didn't have anything else beyond "kneel to me child!". After I pointed out the obvious redundancy in your post with a playful smiley at the end... Come on grandpa! This child needs a teaching on higher reasoning skills .

That's what they get for having fair and balanced coverage. People go watch other shit circuses.

I am not sure about "fair and balanced", but it seems that the presence of biased news sources, especially those that openly proclaim to be so, may have increase because there is a market for it. People go out and hear what they want to hear.


Actually, there was a study done involving news sources covering Trump through Clinton. Fox was only 52% negative toward Trump as compared to the 60-80% of other news sources.

https://www.aim.org/don-irvine-blog/harvard-study-media-coverage-of-trumps-first-100-days-overwhelmingly-negative/

Actually, it looks like there have been several studies over the last couple years consistently showing media bias.


Pretty weird, but it seems to me people will always be more negative post election, but history will often venerate them for those that were not there. May be because Trump is not doing enough, not right wing enough, etc.

Especially since Clinton is no longer worth covering negatively, or at all.

By trying to psychoanalyze the guy and question his motives out of nowhere, highlighting your struggles for no reason other than being called "kid" and caring enough to ask someone you don't know for an explanation of their opinion of you.

Follow your own advice and just not give a fuck, it's better than looking combative, defensive and insecure. Just saying. :/

I mean that is one way to look at it. From my perspective my comment was playful conjecture that went into a 'grown' adult calling me a child for no reason.

To each his own I suppose.

They will be back up once there is something in the news other than Trump foul ups. I mean if there is a Senate hearing on TV that day and you pretend it never happened on your network then people will look other places.

Based on their published articles, Fox News seem to be biased toward Libertarianism depending on the political classification. In this classification, I classify Libertarianism as right-wing on economic issues and as left-wing on social issues which is aligned with the urban economic elites. It is reasonable to believe that Fox News is antagonistic toward Trump since he is right-wing on the social dimension but center on the economic dimension.

Since, they got rid of everybody that was interesting, people who like bland can go watch CNN or MSNBC.

Seriously?

It's not reasoning that makes an adult. It's self-awareness. Let's jog your memory a bit by looking at what you've said.

LOL you started the thread yourself explicitly asking what people think!


I think your taking that comment way more seriously then I did....


........and somehow you chose to answer to a "serious" image macro? WIth how many words?

Have you noticed something? In this thread you've spent way more words replying than I did!


But while were at it I'd say that what's more presumptuous then what I did is making the presumption that I'm a kid


Oh for Pete's sake look at yourself go.

...and the trainwreck doesn't stop there!


Uh, most people just, you know, ignore something they don't care about...

I don't know about you but that is what I do and most people I know. Reacting to everything you don't care about would be exhausting!

...That's the adult thing to do anyway


I'll tell you what's not very adult like though; Calling someone a kid just because you don't like what they have to say .


...and I see that you liked my reply ooooh soooo much that you just couldn't ignore it either! Not only that, you had the gall to mention IRONY!

Just keep chucking those stones kiddo because you're sitting inside a glass house.

Perhaps you're having a lapse or perhaps you're not, but you had no idea what the heck you were doing. Hey, if you're a kid that's expecting a bit much otherwise

I'm just going to point out that we have two "adults" arguing over who is less of an adult than the other and leave it at that.

Well, to be fair, I'm not arguing that he isn't an adult at all. He called me a child. I'm arguing that I'm actually not a child.

What you have is an adult calling another adult a child.



Yeah, no.

I'm not gonna continue to have a conversation with someone who can't go five minutes trying muddy it with 'kiddo' slang. If you want to have a conversation like a big boy, by all means, come at me with some conjecture that isn't so vitriolic and disrespectful. Until then I actually don't care what you have to say at all, and will treat your responses as such. You know. Ignore something I don't care about. Like what adults do. Rocket science and stuff.
