why do some people ask to borrow your lighter each and everytime they want a smoke?

>>>i mean, if they plan to hang out at, say a coffeeshop, and smoke, why don't they bring or buy their own lighter? it's fine with me for the first TWO times, 'kindness of strangers' and all that shit, but c'mon! i'm not gonna light your cigarettes for the duration of your stay!

why do some people stub out their cigarettes in YOUR ashtray on YOUR table without even asking if you'd mind and then they don't even put them out completely?!!!

>>>i don't mind smoke IF i'm willing inhaling it, but to have it curl up and sting my eyes when it's not even coming from my own stick is just plain !@%$@$@@^^$^$&$*$**&^&*$$^$^&^&.

There are several different intepretations of what an argument is and what it isn't. I'm kind of in both camps on certain levels with the opinion that while a serious discussion, following the adversarial rules of conduct often seen in the court proceedings of many popular shows, is often the best form of argument; especially if there's no judge involved! However, there's something to be said for a less than intellectual sparring match where it's mostly the taunts and teasings of truly playground rules; minus all the hair pulling of course...

...from both camps, I'd just like to say how happy I am I got Janet?Violet into this comm because our arguments vary from one type to the other with amazing regularity. The very first post of this community I made a simple blanket statement and she started in with "Your Mom's ugly!" and away we went from there.

It was quite fun...

...I won of course.

While I was still setting up this community, I made a little post about it in my journal. Someone on my friendslist sent me a link to a Monty Python sketch of the same name. I put it right at the top of our links list...which was easy as there's nothing else there so far. In it there's a debate about what qualifies as an argument, involving yet a third type: simple contradiction.

Checkout the link and let's have at it on what an argument really is...
