Now why are you afraid to learn what qualifies as evidence and why?
Hey SZ…

‘Wondering’ is like a little kid that’s trying to take the family dog for a walk. The dog is way too big and untrained for him to control, so the dog ends up dragging him along behind.

Right now ‘Wondering’ has got his stupid on the leash and it has taken control. His only mistake is being afraid to let go of the leash.

I have never reported him.
he's not quite so bad
if reminded of good manners and conduct.
I've been more able to at least understand what he expresses
since asking for courtesy.

I have been going to England every year for about 20 years. I have never seen a place with so many different accents in such a small place. The person in the city and the farmer 5 miles away have very different accents. In London an Englishman can tell what part of London you live in by your accent.
Try living in Lancashire, a person from Lytham would have difficulty to understand a person from the Liverpool area and they can literally wave to each other across the river.

But by the same token I phone the US regularly and I can usually tell to within a few miles where they were brought up

There has recently been research on dog accents and it’s found they too adopt the vocal lilt of the area.

That's quite normal for every European land.
The picture in the US is different because it is a younger nation and a melting pot, but even in the US you can distinguish different dialects of English.

Go back again and do your findings.
Yes, they are the offsprings of the tribes. That is why it began in England.
Offsprings of the tribes? WTF?
We are talking here about MIGRATION.

And that exactly why Anglo-Saxon did NOT begin in England.

No, I have a roommate that I charge rent to. That does not mean I need her to survive. Wow, you really are a moron aren't you? I have not mentioned my roommate for over a year. That shows that you are a lying jack wagon since you did not have the user name you are using now.
So what happened? Did they ban you from this site? You have to be especially foul for that to happen.
yet caught again in another lie you lying jack wagon. this past sunday is not a year.

yes. i was being sarcastic to his post of "The very fact that you are here on Topix ranting like a lunatic surely belies your stated position as the scion of Branson wealth. In any case,someone wasting their time on here."

Which goes to show that wealthy or poor, PhD or no PhD, people from many walks of life come to topix as poly said "all of us need our down time".

Mutations are not very common, beneficial ones even less common. Most mutations are harmful or neutral. I don't see how we could go from dust to single cell organisms to human, even in a long time frame. It seems a big stretch to think that simple turned into progressively more complex, over and over again by accident and random chance. Just look at how complex a fly's eye is, that just kinda mutated into being? We can't even reproduce that synthetically. Just sayin'

You stupid moron, I did not deny having a roommate, I said that I did not need the money.

And yes logic is a biatch, ain't it.

You just admitted that you do not know, or in other words you are arguing from ignorance.

Why not ask a biologist how often positive mutations occur? And while you are at it you should ask what happens to the bad mutations, I do know. The worst of them never make it through the birthing process.

So WHAT? That doesn't mean anything except to a projecting fool who makes up sh1t scenarios highly contrived and imagined. Why don't you ask him who his roommate is or why he has one instead of making sh1t up to project to an audience some imaginary scene you created?

Wow. I just noticed that the idiot wondering quoted my full post where I said:

"No, I have a roommate that I charge rent to. That does not mean I need her to survive."

I pointed out what was wrong with his first statement and he tried to claim that I was lying about having a roommate! What a total ass!! The first sentence says that I have a roommate. Just when I think that wondering could not get any dumber he digs the hole even deeper for himself.

Oops, my mistake. I see now that wondering was not complaining about me debunking his previous idiocy. Now he remembered a minor comment from the past.

Either way it looks like he is stalking me. Who remembers such minutiae unless he is a stalker?

Okay, so my roommate distracted me on the fifth of July. Good for you. That does not mean that your original claim of needing money was not an absolute bit of idiocy on your part.
