I know.

I don't understand calculus.

Big deal.

I don't have to in my profession.

There was no need for me to advance my knowledge in that subject.
And now I've forgotten most of it. You know, if you don't use it, you lose it....

I high school? Is that like in the movie how high?

But you see I am a Physicist, I also own and can use a jigsaw, horizontal band saw, drop saw, wood lathe, metal lathe (1m between centers), mill, bench drill, bench grinders, ect...

Woo. A capitalized "Physicist".

Must be something really special.

And can use tools, to.

Now, tell us, why can't you carry on a rational discussion?

Because you are irrational and limited in vision.

That name is inscribed lots of places. Supposed to be everybody's god.

Not mine, though. It's packaged differently. But you aren't capable of understanding that. Evidently the word triggers random neuron firing and irrationality in you.

Here's a challenge for you.

Try making one of these things out of wood. My brother asked me to make him one out of wood for him, I made a cardboard one as a template and then recreated the pieces in Mahogany. It nearly drove me mad,got there in the end but a difficult task to say the least.

One of the curious things about godbots is the avatars they choose. Quiet a lot of you have a military theme, why is that? Do you think you are a bunch of bad asses or are you just trying to compensate?

Yes I do.

Just because a person doesn't know calculus doesn't mean that person isn't smart or doesn't have common sense.

You're the "Physicist" and you don't know this?

God God God God God
You do realise that you just contradicted yourself:-
"Supposed to be everybody's god."
Which is all inclusive and that includes you.

Then you say:-
"Not mine, though."

This is a logical contradiction, no wonder you are a godbot.

Curious that so many Physicist Atgeists (TM) are so boring....

I just thought it was a funny pic.

And yes, I am a bad ass.
