They say you can't fix stupid, the bummer is, schools, media and over the top reporting are normalizing it.

So by those comments, it would make sense that you don't carry insurance at all, Or at the very least, minimum coverage so you're legal. I mean, if you're grouping yourself in with all those people with experience, smarts and personal responsibility you shouldn't need a silly expense like insurance, right??? A good driver can drive defensively enough and is aware enough that a silly excuse like carrying insurance for other drivers mistakes wouldn't make sense. But you are right about one thing, stupid is being normalized, and believing you're too good to be in an ACCIDENT, is pretty stupid.

But you do seem to talk out of both sides of your mouth...soooo...

Ben, try to take this constructively and not personally, but it isn't necessary to bring out the flamethrower whenever you disagree with someone elses opinion. We see that on TV every day, and I'm phucking tired of it.

Just calling a spade a spade is all. It wasn't a disagreement, I was calling him a liar and posting facts substantiating such.

Sure I did, but perpetuating ignorance has never been what this place has been about. It's always been called out and rectified so the next guy doesn't get bad info. If we're going to start catering to snowflakes, and bruncledaddy information, I'd just as soon leave, and you guys can have fun with all 4 members.

Tell me how clarifying an issue for the rest of us dumb f'ecks at the expense of another members reputation makes us all smarter. I have two college degrees and am a licensed educator- If you're going to have an intellectual battle with me, come armed. And remember I'm Special Ed, so I've got decades experience supporting the special kids.

Ready. Set. Go.

Look...if you want to measure degrees and credentials you’ll still lose, I won’t list them to try to substantiate myself. If you want them, they’re not hard to find. Bottom line, I called out false statements and flat out lies. Since you have so much special ed experience and those two degrees were apparently useless for comprehension and inference, I’ll spell it out for you. When you diminish the credibility and thusly reputation of folks that make ignorant comments, that typically results in other members not heeding their advice, which is a good thing, so other/new members don’t do something unnecessarily. Which ultimately builds reputation of the venue. But with only like 4 members, I suppose it’s not that big of an impact anyway. So I’ll slink off, you do you...and I’ll go play with my 500k members.
