Please note that A) that was obviously intended as a joke, not seriously, and B) I'm still awaiting your response to my very reasonable questions above.

Maybe it would be to just concede to Roger that nobody here has any qualifications they are willing to prove and nobody believes your qualifications because they were provided without any proof. Why not just move on to answering some of questions that have been asked regarding your death squad claims and your claim that someone tried to stop your heart? That's what the thread was really about, not discussing people's qualifications.

It could be titled, "Gangnam Style Never Dies" (or perhaps "Gangnam Style Is Not Enough")

Right after you give *me* the full name of Heartstopper and company of which she was 'Head of Security'.

What is that technique called, and how does one practice it without killing ones sparring partner?

And while we're at it, how about the name of his Aikido dojo, and his Sensei, since that seems to be the basis of his claim to know about The Real Heart Punch Techniques.

See, I've studied some Aikido, and know a lot of Aikidoka, and don't believe any legitimate Aikido dojo would teach crap like that.


Lots of other crap, sure, but not crap like that.

I must admit to some dawning skepticism about Mr. Brown's credentials as an "expert critical thinker". I presented him with two entirely reasonable challenges, to verify his claims, and while he's responded to others, he's failed to respond to me.

"Perhaps," you might say, "He simple didn't see your post." And that would, indeed, be a reasonable possibility...except for the fact that I also sent him a PM with the full text of my post, asking him specifically to respond to it.

In the spirit of charity, I will choose to assume for the time being that rather than ducking the questions, he is instead doing actual research on the whole "stopping hearts by hitting the chest" thing, in order to present me with a proper critical thinker's response to my very reasonable inquiries.

And in a further demonstration of remaining open to the possibility that he is in fact the "expert critical thinker" that he claims to be, I will further assume that he won't resort to blatant cherry-picking, ignoring the vast amounts of research and information that plainly state that the whole "assassination by making your heart stop with punches to the chest" thing is nonsense, and instead choosing some fringe article with no authority beyond the fact that it happens to agree with his own claims.

In short, I look forward to a well-reasoned and thoughtful response that looks at all the evidence, and presents conclusions based firmly on that evidence, rather than on anecdotes and second-hand claims.

And I'm sure that's why it's taking so long for him to respond.

I did a quick Google search of "Lesbian Death Squad" (although it should be noted, as Mr. Brown stated, that he did not claim the woman who tried to assassinate him by stopping his heart was a lesbian, or part of a lesbian death squad), and the top three results lead to this thread.

The majority of the remaining threads tend to refer to death squads who target lesbians and gays...not to lesbians who are killing people.

OT

I haven't been on this site for a few years, just came back on again with a promise not to look at the CT sub forum.

OH THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
I knew I paid my NWO subs for some reason,

How could I not read this thread, it is like putting a sign up saying Wet Paint.

Returning you to your scheduled thread.

This is the 3D Hi def version I take it, with a PC Game License to follow, with a mod kit or DLC Skins (I want Siouxsie, Tilda Swinton, and Jewel Staite skins please).

Could I have a cameo appearance, please? I played a homicidal hitchhiker in an acquaintance's school film project (stabbing the {rule 10} out of a foam dummy with a switchblade comb), and have RL experience with both martial arts and sensible shoes.

Well, we don't know how many other guys she's thumped in the chest...could be hundreds of them, which would give her at least small odds that one of them has actually died as a result.

His CV tops out at an ABD, so... no doctorate.

And while we're at it, how about the name of his Aikido dojo, and his Sensei, since that seems to be the basis of his claim to know about The Real Heart Punch Techniques.

See, I've studied some Aikido, and know a lot of Aikidoka, and don't believe any legitimate Aikido dojo would teach crap like that.


Lots of other crap, sure, but not crap like that.
I've trained in Aikido as well. There's very little striking and none of the striking there is involved a punch-to-the-heart-to-stop-it. There's a lot of martial arts woo around and even people who believe in non-touch-strikes don't believe there is a real life punch-to-the-heart-to-stop-it. Honestly. Struck through the heart. And you're to blame. You gave love...

A bad name.

Surely it would have to be "Zombies vs. Lesbian Death Squads", right? Making the LDSes the heroes would be UnAmerican!

The most recent in November 2007 when a martial arts trained woman ambushed me in a parking lot with two blows to my heart that were supposed to stop it. All she managed to do was bruise my heart and put me in the hospital for three days until my heart enzymes returned to normal. I am an intelligence collection and analysis methodologist. Not only am I still alive, but no one has ever been killed relying on my work since I started in 1978. I developed the most advanced intelligence analysis methodology that currently exists and the most advanced criminal investigation methodology.

With regard to the other posts on this thread, for a purported society of skeptics, there is not a single post that contains a formal inductive or deductive argument. I seriously doubt any of you would recognize one if you saw it. James Randi would probably be embarrassed to learn a page associated with his name contained cheap flaming posts.

The gentleman who did not even listen to what I had to say missed the reason I was talking about death squads. I was warning listeners that legislation needed to be enacted at the State level to prohibit the operation of death squads in the State. There are three types of death squads, two of which are already operating in the United States and the third type will begin operating in the near future. If you think it is not possible, ask the citizens of Argentina, Greece, Chile, Brazil, Cambodia, and South Africa what they think about the possibility.

I dealt with rooms full of students with no critical thinking skills all the time I taught at the college level. I wrote a book titled "The Essential Skills of Critical Thinking" to address their reasoning deficiencies. It specifically addresses how to avoid the use of logical fallacies. Many of the posts on this page contain at least one logical fallacy. If you have any additional valid questions that involve reasoning and not flaming, I will attempt to set the record straight.
I'll play along.

Anyone that claims eight serious attempts on their life will have medical/legal/media documentation of same.

Please post links to same and we can go from there.

Personally, I think you're a nut with an agenda, but I'n willing to listen and retract my statement in the face of evidence.

He already said he couldn't post any details of the other assassination attempts because it would potentially put people's lives in danger.
