I understand you both disagree with me about running, but it might be because you picture me this way. Trying hard, excelling, gritting my teeth determinedly.

Does that really jibe for you?

Picture a tubby old guy, jogging slowly and saying LOTS of the wrong things.

Now picture tubby old guy checking his phone while running...stopping to share a sip of rum from a metal flask...taking the long way home because I have time, stopping to smoke weed, then start running while choking on it.

It's a less vigorous exercise for me, than for many.

Listen to the scientists.
Which ones?

I've seen scientists quoted in favour of pipelines, and against them. I just watch them argue, and see if any of them seem shifty and sketchy.

Which scientists should I listen to about the pipelines, pErvinalia? The ones who focus madly on any environmental risk? The ones who focus madly on the extra fuel (and pollution) expended in other methods of moving the oil around? What if they disagree? Should I follow a particular political party for the best answers? Who decides what 'best' means? The environmental scientist who doesn't want a pipeline? Or the environmental scientist who doesn't want the extra pollution from trucking the product?

Oh, I don't ever expect you to answer questions, but I thought this might show you how useless your 'contribution' was.

You should listen to scientists more, pErvinalia.

Don't pretend you are engaging honestly. The reason you ask so many inane questions is to make it nearly impossible to reply in a coherent fashion.

Listen to the scientists means listen to the scientific concensus as opposed to shock jocks and lobbyists. It's not a hard concept, and certainly not worth ten questions in reply. :roll:

You understand that you are probably the 1%, right? So who are YOUR paymasters?
What nonsense, I as a retired teacher, are nowhere near our "1%".
How near?

The threshold is somewhere in the mid-30,000 dollars per year range, if I recall correctly.
About 35k annual income places you in the top 1% income range? I'd like to see a link for that figure. Until I see one I will remain convinced that you pulled a massively wrong figure out of your arse.

No way is JimC anywhere near the top 1%. He probably is not even in the top 20%.

In Australia your annual income needed to be more than $40k to make it into the top 20% in 2016, and if your income were $180k or higher, you made it into the top 4% in 2014.

JimC cannot be regarded as wealthy by any stretch of the imagination. He does live in relative comfort, though. After teaching maths and science full time continuously for 40 years it would seem odd if he did not.

I think Cunt is thinking of the 1% considered world wide, which is not a valid response to my point about the influence of the very wealthy on the economies of many countries...

People like Cunt dont seem to understand the massive inequality in the USA is the result of unfettered capitalism.
The 1% world wide are in control and are using their vast wealth to maintain and increase that control. It is questionable if Trump himself belongs to the 1%. He thinks he does but how much wealth does he have? I think he is riding the coat tails of the 1%. Real money does not act or speak like him.

Do you ever shut up about running?
I hope not.

I understand how you would be bothered by it, though. Running is a pretty pure meritocracy, and you must know how much 'merit' you bring to the table.

Sorry it bothers you so, pErvinalia. You ARE invited to run with me though. :) I would even help you learn.
Encouraging people to exercise is problematic. It's fat-shaming, fitness-shaming, and it is overall unfair - people who are raised in a culture of exercise tend to have advantages that their less fortunate countrypeople do not have. It's as bad as encouraging your kids to read. Since not everyone has that encouragement, it's problematic.

What you need to do is have a healthy attitude toward fitness. Being able to run far or fast, and being able to lift things, endure lengthy physical activity, increase one's heart rate, etc. - these things don't mean one is fit. People can be fit and out of shape. Strong cardiovascular systems and endurance is a creature of patriarchy, and out of breath people who cannot run should be considered "differently fit," rather than unfit.

In fact, Cunt, all your commentary on fitness and running is hate speech. It encourages negative attitudes toward people of other fitness levels, and it normalizes hatred of the differently fit.

You only want to compare yourself to your wealthy neighbours. I am talking about the real 1%. Those who send heavies to mine in foreign countries to power their smartphones.

You ARE the very wealthy, influencing the economies of many countries. (the mining example was just an ugly example...the list is endless)
