Also, I want my greenies, you owe me ten, including this tribute thread.
So, a 6 word sentence about Flynn and some cheese, or whatever, does not constitute a valid argument.
How to construct an argument 101
Step 1: Come up with a hypothesis that is clear and concise that you want to either argue against or recommend. Make sure the subject is unambivalent, it shouldn't be able to be interpreted in multiple ways. Clarify the subject as much as possible.
Step 2: Adequate evidence to support your hypothesis. This is the beginning, it's only the level 1 part of thinking. Make sure your facts are verifiable, reliable, and relevant. Again, this part is only level 1. You still haven't argued for your hypothesis yet. This step is just laying the foundation. Coward.
Step 3: Reasoning. This where you can try and show off your level 2+ cognitive apparel. Relate these facts into a broader conceptual framework. Use reason and logical patterns that clearly connects your premises, along with the facts, of how it relates to substantiating your hypothesis. This is the meat of your argument. This is where you get to finally prove that you are as smart as you think you are. You get to wow people here. God knows how much you need your admiration. So, take this step seriously.
Step 4: Prepare answers to counter arguments. There are always two sides. Answer to the other side. This is where Askholio can go **** himself. You respond to the counter arguments. You respond to previous arguments that would try and contradict yours. **** Askholio. God damn coward.
Step 5: **** all of your common logical fallacies...especially the ones that include evasions, reframing, sending Askholio out, non sequiturs , post hoc, circular ****, and hasty generalizations.

and if I forgot anyone, my bad. Who wants to take the over and under about how many ties he will bring up Flynn and cheese?
