Making a difference...

Those that make a difference always matter...

YAWN...

The exaltation of opinion over fact... emotion over reason... style over substance... all hallmarks of the self-destructive "progressive" mindset.

You've staked your worth on the opinions of others. Conversely, truth is inherently valuable.

You really don't matter much.

Thrasher said...

D20,

Your inability to make a difference only validates the difference maker I am...

People like you who declare they have substance never express it or reveal it..

Truth is difference makers like me create shallow envious people like you..You only matter becuase I create a reason for you to matter..

A critic does not exist when they have nothing to be critical of...

D20 said...

The status quo suits me just fine; there's no need to "change."

Exactly what "difference" have you made (other than cluttering the net with your inane chatter)?

Thrasher said...

D20,

My body of work is extensive... Allow me to document just one small effort on my behalf...

Last month the Detroit Free Press published the names of volunteers for the DPS Reader Corps..

My name is there for all to see ..Where is your name?? I am a difference maker...Where is your name?????

D20 said...

A volunteer reader corps, eh? Whoa! Color me impressed!

This exercise is pointless, but, since you asked for a pissing contest, I'll see if I can match your level of magnanimity:
Macromolecules
Langmuir
Journal of Polymer Science
Review of Scientific Instrumentation
Journal of Polymer Physics
Polymer
SPIE Conference Proceedings
EE Times

and, of course, in the WSU Science and Engineering Library thesis stacks (they're in the basement, in case you're interested).

...stuff you couldn't even begin to comprehend... REAL contributions to a perpetually expanding body of knowledge. I've even got your little House candidate friend, Dr. Mathew from Ghana, beat (and I'm half his age!).

It's all meaningless to you, of course. In fact, it's all indistinguishable from magic, I'm sure. But, to those who truly matter, they're all very important achievements -- solid evidence of my skill, independent of my skin color, worthy of recognition and a handsome market wage.

D20 aka Mr.Fantastic.

So what drives your envy of me is the fact your a nobody with a bunch of irrevelant science awards in plastic studies... A bunch of meaningless awards nobody cares about or ever read..Your desparate need to be recognize and noticed is tragic..I bet you felt good finally spitting out your laundry list of irrevelant credentials...

I do understand why you lack the depth and skills to engaged in logic and political discourse of course you have zero writing and debate skills( I bet you cannot string two paragraphs together and I doubt if you have any public speaking credentials..

So at end of the day we have a frustrated plastic man unable to matter in the real world and marketplace fixated and obessed over my notary ..

Do me a favor go find another plastic toy to make..make yourself useful for something..

D20 said...

I wouldn't expect a layman to appreciate the implications of my work. It's all magic to you: The fluids involved in the processes that create the technology, which you squander, ignorant of its basic functions; the stents that will keep your vital organs from exploding once age catches up to you; and so much more.

You are a layman. Your level of ignorance groups you with the undistinguished. All you know is that the technology is there. Beyond that, it's magic.

Plastic man, indeed... I'm the fucking Wizard of Oz, and you're a mental midgit who has the audacity to tell the producers that he knows better. Your "influence" (such as it is) doesn't extend beyond the Metro Detroit area. The results of my work are felt and quoted worldwide.

Your lack of inherent worth necessitates a perpetual state of self-agrandizement and self-promotion. I don't need to parade around a laundry list of accomplishments (remember, you asked for it). I don't need to constantly remind myself and everyone within earshot that I'm great. I stand upon my body of work, which allows me to see clear over your head.

Moreover, I certainly don't need your attention to validate my self worth. My relationship to you is one of amusement. You regularly spit out ridiculous statements that stem from an illogical and historically-failed world view. I keep my sword sharp by cutting through the babble and into the empty, hollow core.

What you say is wrong, and needs to be challenged by the truth.

Thrasher said...

Mr.Fantastic,

You doth protest to much... Your long winded rant again confirmed my thoughts about you..

You are a nobody in need of a public hugging..Your entire professional life has been ignored ..In part becuase of the d of white supremacy and your false white privledge you feel compelled to put me in my place ..

Truth is you are a nobody an empty man obesssed with me because I inspire and cast a wide aura..All of your worthless credentials have only made you invisible and impotent in contrast with me..

I am a shiny light on top of the hill while you are a doormat for my footprints..

Now run along and go construct a plastic toy in my image so you can worship, adore and genuflect to my image..

I only have one request when you dream of me please do it in color ...

D20 said...

Alas, a polymeric monument to your greatness has already been accomplished.

You're so singularly focused on skin color that you are incapable of rational debate. I'd have pity, if you weren't so irritating.

You can't out-wit me.
You can't outsmart me.
You can't compete in the arena of ideas.

It's too easy...

Thrasher said...

D20,

I thought you were a producer..lol,lol,lol..Yet another example of your over inflated worth a academic type who believes they work for a living.....

BTW I am darker and taller than the Urkel toy..lol,lol,lol

Thrasher said...

Dr.Fantasic,

BTW your pleas sound like you are really trying to convince yourself you are smarter than me..lol,lol,lol

Get over me for a person that claims they are so educated your need to seek my validation and recognition reveals how fragile and insecure you are...

Maybe you should believe your dogma and become a real producer instead of a professor in a 2nd tier state university that would be a great place to start to matter..

You made a critical mistake by telling all of this nonsense about your failed life..I own you now...

D20 said...

Wrong again, detective.

Roam the halls near 3rd & Warren, if you must -- You won't find me there, neither will you find me in any academic hall. Oh, my footprints and fingerprints are all over the place, but I've since graduated. The perpetual student and the drop-out (I'm lookin' at you, detective) are an offense and a by-word to me. I don't survive on either the garnished wages or the work of another (again, looking at you, kid).

I can; therefore, I do.
Those who can not, teach (or, in your case, preach).

By all means, please continue to twist my words into self-flattery. You certainly aren't getting tired of my company. Just know that there is nothing special or unique about you. A couple mouse clicks, and I'll find myself another progressive lunatic to harass. Heck, I'll need to move on some day (you'll be gone first, I'm half your age). Got any good references or any successors lined up to fight the good fight or "make a difference?" Or, are you the stereotypical lib who's too cowardly and irresponsible to raise children?

Thrasher said...

Mr.Fantastic,

You gotta do better with your excuses..My children all have university and law school degrees...My parenting and mentoring has enriched entire sub-divisions..

People like you whose anger and envy drive your existence would do well to model my real life experiences but your inflated ego and false privledge will not allow you to respect and acknowledge my body of work so all I get from you is rage, anger, threats, angst but I understand I am a parent of people your age..

Do me a favor keep coming at me .it keeps me awake and sharpens my keystrokes..lol,lol,lol

Thrasher:Thank you for not letting D20,undervalue you!

D20 said...

A one-trick pony, doing his trick.

Do your trick, One-Trick Pony! Do your trick! Atta boy!

D20 said...

More internet traffic for "Tea Party" than for "Greg Thrasher", guaran-damn-teed.

D20 said...

Mr. Greg Thrasher,

In all honesty, the biggest difference you could make would be to get guys like me to see things your way. I'm willing to bet that, at the end of the day, you and I want the same things for ourselves, our families, and our fellow men. However, it seems that we have different ideas on how to go about getting those things (or, do we?).

Do you want to pause our pissing contest for a while and actually go over some ideas, point-by-point? It's clear that we both can sling mud and exchange barbs. You and I are grown men; we're both capable of acting like grown men.

Name-calling and adolescent zingers are fun for a time, but in the end, they don't add a single moment to either one of our lives.

I want to hear your ideas, and I will use every ounce of discipline to apply voluntary amnesia to our previous spats while listening to you.

Thrasher said...

D20,

I will give your plea for a truce a good nite sleep..I will also suspend my memory as well with regard to your previous attacks on my personhood.

I do agree the world is bigger than you and me....
