"punting on fourth and one" Is that, "playing it safe" or something? I
can't see why anyone would think a comment like that would "discourage
people from eating vegetables." I certainly do hope the minority of
vegetarians incapable of taking a bit of a joke don't ruin things for
the majority who can.

"punting on fourth and one" Is that, "playing it safe" or something?


In American football, when a team takes possession of the ball, they
have four downs (plays) to try to advance 10 yards. If they succeed in
advancing the ball 10 yards, they get a new set of downs (unless they
advance past the other team's goal line, resulting in scoring a
touchdown worth six points.) On the fourth attempt to advance the
initial 10 yards, if they fail to advance beyond the point 10 yards from
where they first took possession, the lose the ball on downs and the
other team takes possession. Typically, if the team possessing the ball
is between their own goal line and the midfield line (50 yard line),
they'll punt the ball to the other team. A punt is a kick: the ball is
snapped from the line of scrimmage to the punter standing about 15 yards
behind the line, and he kicks the ball in the air; someone on the
defensive team usually tries to catch the ball and run with it.
However, if the team with the ball is in the other team's half of the
field (pitch), and if there is but a short distance left to complete a
10 yard advance and obtain another set of downs, then the team with the
ball may elect to try to gain the necessary advance. There is a variety
of game situations in which a team might try to do this rather than
punting the ball or perhaps trying to kick a field goal.

The metaphor "punting on fourth and one" means, indeed, to play it safe,
or conservatively. It's also taken as meaning lacking confidence in
one's ability to advance, even though not much advance is required -
that is, a metaphor for gutlessness. The "one", of course, refers to
one yard left to go. Even worse would be "punting on fourth and inches."


I can't see why anyone would think a comment like that would "discourage
people from eating vegetables."


By itself, it wouldn't. But as you might imagine, dietary choice has
been heavily politicized here. The "Center for Science in the Public
Interest" is not a true science advisory group at all. It's a left-wing
advocacy group with a long and sordid history of peddling pseudoscience
in order to try to dictate to people what they "ought" to eat. Yes,
they very much advocate vegetarianism, and if they want to advocate it
on ethical principles, no one would really object, but when they try to
dress it up in the language of fake science, it becomes objectionable.

Jay Stevens, aka "'Dr.' Jai Maharaj", aka the jyotishithead, is not a
doctor, not a Hindoo, and is in fact a Caucasian lying shitbag from
Hawaii who does real vegetarians a disservice by making them look like
intolerant meddlers. He's a fraudster - he claims to be an astrologer,
and he tells people their "fortunes" and futures for money, so he is
committing outright fraud.


I certainly do hope the minority of
vegetarians incapable of taking a bit of a joke don't ruin things for
the majority who can.


****wits like Jay Stevens and CSPI are exactly the reason why "vegans"
are widely considered to be completely humorless.

Whatever did happen to the Whore of Ballaghaderreen, I often wonder. I

He seems to be trying to put vegetarians in the same group as those who
should never be criticised or offended. That in itself is going to cause
more. It's the wrong tactic.

He's a fraudster - he claims to be an astrologer,
and he tells people their "fortunes" and futures for money, so he is

Preying on the most vulnerable in need has to be one of the most

Here's a page that gives a comparison between American football and
rugby league:

She seemed to me to have a good grasp of facts at times, but on other
occasions she seemed to be a thorough lunatic. She believed in all
manner of crackpot "spirituality", and if there was even a hint of that
in one of her posts, I always assumed the entire post was queered.

I also wonder what became of 'Scented Nectar' or Skanky/Skunky. She was
another goof. I think her biggest problem was she abused marijuana
something terrible. It's one thing to enjoy a grass high from time to
time, but she seemed to be a heavy-duty pothead.

There's an Australian clown here who claims to have a PhD in math yet can't
comprehend a simple aspect of life we discussed in class in grade school. In the
grade school I went to, he probably would have been in special ed:

"I don't believe the distinction between "lives of positive value" and
"lives of negative value" means anything." - Rupert

unless he was lying when he wrote that. An indication that he was is that he
claimed to have been able to comprehend the distinction previous to his claim
that he can not:

"I said to David Harrison that there exist some farmed animals such
that it would be a better outcome for them to live the life they do
rather than for them not to live at all and for no animals to live
in their place." - Rupert

Do you think it's likely that he could comprehend at one point, and then later
he unlearned? If so, how do you think he unlearned? If not, why do you think he
started lying about it?

Goober we discussed slavery in the US and the fact that some slaves were
content with their lives meaning they had positive value to them and that other
slaves had lives which they considered to be good. We discussed the fact that
the value could and did change for them too Goo. We discussed that when they
became free they often couldn't find jobs so many agreed to stay on as slaves
until things changed over the years... We discussed more than that too Goo, like
that some people would remain slaves even when life was of negative value to
them pesonally, in the hopes that things would be better for their children. But
such details are necessarily beyond the mental ability of people who don't see
how life could ever be a benefit ...LOL... to anything. It's also beyond the
ability of someone who doesn't think the distinction between lives of positive
and negative value means anything, to appreciate how the difference between
lives of positive and negative value means anything, Goo. We were doing it by
the sixth grade Goober, but Dr. Rupert claims that he can't do it at all. He
claimed that he could in the past Goo, but has either unlearned or is still able
to do it while lying that he can't. Either way seems very stupid from my pov,
Goo.

There's nothing more to it than that, *Goo*. You did *NOT* ever talk
about slaves "benefiting" from "getting to experience life.



we discussed slavery in the US


Every elementary school child in the US "discusses" that, *Goo*. But
*NONE* ever talk about the philosophical implication of whether or not
they "benefited" by "getting to experience life." You're simply lying
about that, *Goo*.

how life could ever be a benefit ...LOL... to anything. It's also beyond the
ability of someone who doesn't think the distinction between lives of positive
and negative value means anything, to appreciate how the difference between
lives of positive and negative value means anything, Goo. We were doing it by
the sixth grade Goober, but Dr. Rupert claims that he can't do it at all. He
claimed that he could in the past Goo, but has either unlearned or is still able
to do it while lying that he can't. Either way seems very stupid from my pov,
Goo.

You did *NOT* ever talk about slaves "benefiting" from "getting to experience life.

LOL!!! You sure are a stupid Goober to even let that possibility enter your
stupid little mind Goo, much less outstupid yourself by making such an absurdly
STUPID claim. LOL...to think that has never been discussed in an elementary
school is hilarious Goob, especially since we discussed it in some detail. Just
because you eliminationists can't think about it doesn't mean that most people
can't you idiot, and in fact from my experience most people CAN, Goo.

There's an Australian clown here who claims to have a PhD in math yet can't
comprehend a simple aspect of life we discussed in class in grade school. In the
grade school I went to, he probably would have been in special ed:

"I don't believe the distinction between "lives of positive value" and
"lives of negative value" means anything." - Rupert

unless he was lying when he wrote that. An indication that he was is that he
claimed to have been able to comprehend the distinction previous to his claim
that he can not:

"I said to David Harrison that there exist some farmed animals such
that it would be a better outcome for them to live the life they do
rather than for them not to live at all and for no animals to live
in their place." - Rupert

Do you think it's likely that he could comprehend at one point, and then later
he unlearned? If so, how do you think he unlearned? If not, why do you think he
started lying about it?

No,

There's more to it than that Goob. Try again: Do you think it's likely that
Rupert could comprehend at one point, and then later he unlearned? If so, how do
you think he unlearned? If not, why do you think he started lying about it?

There's nothing more to it than that


Do you think it's likely that Rupert could comprehend at one point Goob, and
then later he unlearned? If so Goober, how do you think he unlearned? If not why
do you think he started lying about it, Goo?

you did not ever discuss in grade school how "getting to experience
life" is a benefit.

Goober we discussed slavery in the US and the fact that some slaves were
content with their lives meaning they had positive value to them and that other
slaves had lives which they considered to be good. We discussed the fact that
the value could and did change for them too Goo. We discussed that when they
became free they often couldn't find jobs so many agreed to stay on as slaves
until things changed over the years... We discussed more than that too Goo, like
that some people would remain slaves even when life was of negative value to
them pesonally, in the hopes that things would be better for their children. But
such details are necessarily beyond the mental ability of people who don't see
how life could ever be a benefit ...LOL... to anything. It's also beyond the
ability of someone who doesn't think the distinction between lives of positive
and negative value means anything, to appreciate how the difference between
lives of positive and negative value means anything, Goo. We were doing it by

You've never done that Goober. Try doing it now Goo. Go:

*NONE* ever talk about the philosophical implication of whether or not

Most people can Goob. ONLY eliminationists have been unable to do so in my
experience, Goo.
