    funny thing about him

    I accidentally banned him for like six months

    So in the case of an accidental banning, how would that get rectified? I mean he can't exactly pm you to say you did it in error, and if the person is hated enough I guess no one would notice?

    -People that eat meat but can't watch a lion hunting on Animal Planet

    What's wrong with that, dude? Some people just can't stomach violence.

    Then don't cause it? It's hypocritical to be ok with paying someone to kill your food, but to be unwilling to kill said food yourself.

    I like not being dead but I don't have a medical degree.

    Yeah, I hate this too. Fucking holdover from the DOS days where every file had a damn period in it. Under Windows "del *.*" even deletes files without a single damn "." in the name! You don't see that shit with *a* deleting files without any "a"s in the name. You don't see that shit on Linux. "rm -rf *.*" won't delete files without periods in the filename, you use "rm -rf *" instead. What the fuck.

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson

    First of all, turning off "hide extentions for known file types" is the first thing I do when I install Windows.

    Second, you can easily make a file without an extension at all. Seriously. Go do it. Do it right now. Put it in a folder by itself, open a command prompt, go to the folder, and type "del *.*"

    One strange behavior of windows is that renaming something through explorer to start with a "." doesn't work, but that convention is not enforced anywhere else.

    *sigh*

    1) It is impossible to create a file with "without an extension at all". If you don't enter one the file as an extension of "" (empty string) which is different from a null extension.
    2) Even if it is not rendered in the browser a file with an extension of "" still has a "." after the file name.

    To be fair, you are assuming a lot about the implications of TrueHereticX's comment. Now, I'm no bastion of confidence, but I did summon up the courage to ask a girl out on a date only to be turned down. A month later, she was dating a guy and she did say the classic, "Oh, he's so great; he's just like you." Now, I know that there are all sorts of subtleties behind the phrase "he's just like you", such as there she may like my personality type but there just wasn't any chemistry between us or she's trying to introduce her beau to her friends and is building rapport between me and him or whatever. However, it's still an annoying thing to say.
