your approval on this acceptance of your rejection of my universal constants hinges on one thing. Can i fly in your reality? If so, you may have your switching of physical laws.

Psh.  Of course you can.  What kind of alternate reality would be if you couldn't fly.

I'm afraid Renoard, that your interesting distinctions seem foreign to me.  I'm very curious where you came up with them.

Anyone who is a university student can likely settle this once and for all by quoting the OED.

Um you actually used the BBC as an authority? Half of the inaccuracies I've found on wiki were cites from BBC or Nat Geo.
Ok, then, does cnet float your boat? ::)

or how about the study conducted at california state university?

or information week?

I'm sure I could find numerous other sources, however, I have yet to see you cite any source as to your reasons to refuting (which is the standard form of a debate. You must supply evidence to back up your statements). The only place I can find refuting wikipedia's accuracy is from encyclopedia britannica, but i'm sure they may have some bias in there to try to refute this evidence.

I'd go for the study conducted at California State. Cnet's typically so full of crap that I wonder how they're even still around. I've never read Information Week, but it looks like a news outlet, which also discounts its accuracy in my view.

Not that I've actually paid enough attention to know what you're arguing about, but I thought I'd throw that out there. You know, because I need to waste time and there's nothing else on.

What's gets me is the way SF&F and comics are skewed against human beings.  Okay assume you can go to an alternate reality or another planet.  How come the aliens are always more competent and powerful.  You can't claim it's because there would be no conflict, Superman et al. Always have plenty of conflict to face.  But if every alien species, alternate reality, and magical event leaves ordinary people as the weaklings, then what are saying?  We're saying that in all the worlds, galaxies and universes we can conceive people are the most pathetic weaklings possible.  Not very healthy.  I want to see a fat bald network administrator who becomes the superhero without gaining any new abilities or special costumes. :P

Fly?  Why an alternate reality that would be cool would be one where your ordinary walking is superspeed and a human is a super genius....

It's totally true.  Someone should write a sci-fi that takes place from an alien that falls into a world of super beings and only near the end to find out that they are humans and the perception of the alien is just different. xD

Also, I got a puppy for Easter.  Well my sister and I did.  Now to just convince her we should name it Vin . . . she doesn't know about it yet though. ha ha.

TenSoon would be more appropriate. And also get you funny looks from guests. :)

Shrink : And why are we here again?

Me : Because my dog is really a mass of blue-translucent-gooey muscles and just pretending to be a dog.  He tells me about it all the time.

Shrink : Oh yes, I remember, you're the crazy one.

Change Miyabi to a Heroic Space Marine with a penchant for bad puns and I think there's the makings of a comic strip there.

Oh I've got dozens of them.  My friend Shasta and I like to randomly reference books and make it seem like real life.  We get the weirdest looks from people at work.

Me and my bro used to say random words in hebrew and act like we were actually saying something. It was fun.
