    You were asked, directly, to cite to evidence for your claim.

    You've pulled backflips to avoid answering.

    In short, you are now serially mendacious.

    I'd express my hope that you have a nice day, but frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

    Your hate-mail will be graded.

      I have zero recollection of your expressed hope (since  withdrawn) that I have a nice day.

      I'd express my hope that you have a nice day, but frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
      I missed that. Honest. But in practical terms, does it even matter that much? I mean, really, since you've changed your hope, already. And you. obviously. don't. care.

      Please substantiate your claim that I ever accused you of using a rhetorical FU, by ordering me to have a nice day.

      This:

      You have a lovely day.
      was an obviously rhetorical farewell greeting from TG, to me. So I replied with some obvious snark and sarcasm. Admittedly amateurish of me, I know.

      Did you mistake my reply to TG as somehow personally meant for you? How DID that happen?

      No officer, I didn't mean to shoot my girl friend with multiple rounds. Yes, officer I did put the ammo and the magazine in the oven. How was I supposed to know she would use the oven for baking? - ST. PETERSBURG, FL, 2/18/13

        has some serious failure points.

        •  lanx satura (0+ / 0-)
          The expression lanx satura literally means "a full dish of various kinds of fruits."[4]
          I'm sure you know what a non-sequitor is, how loose associations and absurd assertions can be used as rhetorical devices. You do recognize satire, intentional irony and sarcasm, don't you?

          Pave, I know you like to dish it out, but can you tell when you are being served a rhetorical fruit salad?

          https://en.wikipedia.org/...

          Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, and society itself, into improvement.[1] Although satire is usually meant to be funny, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon.

          A common feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm—"in satire, irony is militant"[2]—but parody, burlesque, exaggeration,[3] juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing.
          This "militant" irony or sarcasm often professes to approve of (or at least accept as natural) the very things the satirist wishes to attack.

          Satire is nowadays found in many artistic forms of expression, including literature, plays, commentary, and media such as lyrics.

          The word satire comes from the Latin word satur and the subsequent phrase lanx satura. Satur meant "full," but the juxtaposition with lanx shifted the meaning to "miscellany or medley": the expression lanx satura literally means "a full dish of various kinds of fruits."[4]

      introduced myself.

      If you bother reading this please consider this fair notice:

      If you want to challenge something I write your first shot better be your best shot, because I will attempt to explain my prior remarks only once again, and ONLY IF I agree with you that there was 1) cause for confusion AND 2) believe your request is offered with sincerity.

      If you persist to follow me around with bullshit questions - which you have done before - I just might mock the shit out of you. Or Not.

      Because I support the right to keep and bear arms.

      And both of mine have a funny bone.
