    Oh, riiiiight.

    I can't even count in a counting thread all by myself w/o one of you guys showing up and calling me a 'counting wh___', or placing tags on it about mental capacity.

    av you should look at more then just a single notation in a single source of the definition of a word. I find answers.com bends over for creationists, where a more respected dictionary would not.

    maybe that's because you fallaciously brag about your post count as if it gives you entitlement to ignore other peoples ideas and opinions, or that it somehow your views are superior because of post count. I bet if you didn't do that people would not mock you so. You are sowing the seeds to your own misfortune.

    Oh yes.. you do. In particular you call others "newbies" and tell them not to critisize you until their post-count is greater.

    Any perfect shape is only possible mathematically, but not physically. It's literally impossible to have a perfect physical shape, because even on the smallest level, there would always be imperfections.

    To guess these perfect dimensions, using a bit of string, your hand and your arm, with any kind of accuracy is laughable.


    Av, still waiting, what "kind" are Archeopteryx and Microraptor?

    Then that. I've seen it with my own eyes on more than one occasion. You've done similar things regarding your rep count as well. And I notice you are sure to announce for all to see when you do rep someone.

    But hey, your perogative. But to get on topic, you started with 10 rep points, right? So getting to the 2 quadrillion or whatever you have at this moment, was that micro-reputation, or macro-reputation?

    I know that, but it sank a thread in physical science when someone else could not reconcile it with their biblical literalism.

    Could you be a little more specific?

    I tell them not to come on here saying stuff like, "You never [this]", or "You never [that]", or "You always [this]", or "You always [that]" when they don't know me from Adam.

    Even you seasoned people falsely accuse me of stuff.

    QV the latter half of this post: 132, which started out here: 167.

    If I wanted to brag, my blessings are one decimal place higher than my post count, and my reps are 10 decimal places higher.

    I officially declare your exchange with AV f***ing hilarious.

    Using your brain without looking at the evidence can lead you to fancy ideas and even logically valid conclusions, but it's a lousy way of discovering truth.

    What you're asking people to do here is like asking them to figure out how homing pigeons find their way home or how galaxies form without looking at the evidence. In other words, absurd.

    You must be using a definition of "evidence" I haven't heard of. The evidence points where it does; wrong conclusions come from the people dealing with it.

    Word. :thumbsup:

    Do the "names" actually exist outside dolphins? I've only ever heard them mentioned in connection with dolphins (and usually bottlenose dolphins). :scratch:

    OR a fly, for that matter...

    Not to mention elephant shrews or silverfish.

    That's a Microraptor with dislocated hips. AFAIK, they couldn't splay their legs like that.

    This one's probably more accurate, at least as far as legs go.

    Ooooh, that's a good picture.

    The picture I posted wasn't exactly the most accurate, anyway, not only was it doing the splits, but its legs were way too curved.

    It still shows the general form of Microraptor, with feathered wings and a very lizard-like head, tail etc, which is all I really needed it for. Plus it was the clearest picture on the first page when I google image searched it.

    When you consider how similar it is to modern day birds, and still very similar to ancient theropod dinosaurs, it makes putting the very mammalian bats in the same "kind" as birds seem even more primitive, and even more absurd.
