The obvious, glaring fact that they are a publisher who dictates which political side is permitted to post their content, and the act of proving it to a court while also proving harm was done, sadly, are two very different things. I doubt there are many American politicians with the time and money to spend attacking Reddit, and I think it would be hard to convince them of the benefit of doing so.

I think there would be a lot to gain by turning Reddit into a neutral platform or shutting it down. So many searches on places like Google take their results straight from Reddit - imagine being an uninformed and undecided voter, looking up some questions, getting directed to Reddit and assuming that it was a free speech, open forum for all people to communicate. You'd walk away assuming Republicans rape women to impregnate them for the sole purpose of denying them an abortion so they can, later, devour the child on an altar to Trump.

Why do women even bother staying in these relationships? What's the point?

I have to assume that the number of women who married a man who was so effeminate that him saying he wants to pretend to be a woman, take drugs to help him do that, and maybe have plastic surgery that would basically destroy the man she married, and she thinks that's not a deal breaker is so astronomically tiny that most of these stories are simply fake. There must also be a percentage, likely a higher one, of women who are simply in a Sunk Costs situation - They love the Man they married and want to stay with him and assume that this change is just something they can work through. Some women, after all, will stay with abusive partners and say it's just a problem they need to work through together.

I would hope most women have enough self respect that, when their husband says: "I'm going to be a woman now" they say: "That's a shame, because I didn't marry a woman, I married a man, and this unhealthy mental state you're in obviously isn't going to end well." and leave. It's not about hating trans people... At least, I hope it's not for most people... It's about your partner suddenly saying they are the opposite sex. You wouldn't begrudge someone for going on a date with someone, finding out they are the opposite sex they claimed and saying that the lies, the confusion and the fact that you were looking for a man/woman not a woman/man, makes this a bad relationship and you're not going to continue. That shouldn't change when you find out after X years.

That's not how this works. Accusations aren't evidence, and the convictions are already convictions, and none of it is relevant to the fact that I pointed out the numerous attempts make people feel like he's being witch hunted and make them support him financially.

So the answer to my question is: "Yes, I am suggesting that".
It's going to be difficult to continue the conversation, partially because I feel like you're very much blinded by one side, and partially because you keep guiding it off track towards this idea that Trump is guilty of various things - which isn't relevant to the original point: constantly accusing him of various, trivial or ridiculous... Heck, even honest and genuine and concerning things... And having them rebuked has created a situation in which a lot of people were throwing money at him in the hopes that he would come out on top. The constant effort to utilize the legal system against him, rightly or wrongly, is what has made the current situation.

So what you're suggesting is that in the 14+ impeachment requests that went through to be reviewed, 12 times he was guilty and was simply so powerful and corrupt that he had the cases dropped, even when the charges were: "So racist that people are in danger"?

My point, as I pointed out, is that I don't think that's a con. I think that's the result of the constant efforts of his opponents to use the legal system against him, which has resulted in a "Boy who cries wolf" situation.

We're now back to where I commented and then you talked about the fact that you think he's guilty or corrupt or both, which isn't really relevant to what I'm talking about. Much like the Boy Who Cried Wolf story, once you've screamed Wolf a dozen times and there's been no wolf, when you actually see one, nobody cares any more and they are mostly rooting for the wolf.

Well I think, in this case, it's his political opponents you have to blame for that. With over 14 attempts to impeach him that reached the stage of being heard and a handful of petty legal cases thrown wildly at him to see which one sticks, it's only a matter of time before the population starts to see him less as an obvious criminal and more as the beset, attacked one.

Accuse someone once, people will be on your side.
Accuse them 5 times, people start to lose interest in your "Boy who cried wolf" antics.
Accuse them 10 times, people start to hope you fail and your opponent wins.
Accuse them nearly 20 times and finally get something to stick, people send money to the other guy, seeing that you're just trying everything to make them appear bad.

I think it would have gone differently if this was, say, the 3rd attempt to impeach or convict Trump. People would have been saying: "Finally! Took them 3 tries, but they got him!"... Instead I think a lot of people who are sending him money just feel like it's the whole system against poor, multi-millionaire ex-president Trump, throwing every charge, no matter how frivolous, until enough corruption and technicalities manage to stick to him. Worse - if his voter base weren't already convinced that there was some conspiracy to paint him as a criminal, by God they are now. Between "He's a Russian spy!" and "He likes to be peed on!!" and "He needs to be Impeached for... Uh... Racism!"... Stuff like this is how you galvanize your enemies against you.

In A Relationship: The Man or the Bear? by TonyDiGerolamo in Comics

[–]NastyWetSmear 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Oh, well that's a misunderstanding on my part as well.

You can try and qualify down the specifics, if you want, but we can always do the same with the bear: "Well the majority of these won't be when they are hungry, they might not have seen you, they are usually on the move to feeding grounds or home so they won't bother..." etc etc etc. For every excuse we create to excuse the men as a factor, we can create one to excuse the bear. The fact boils down to - For all interactions with men and bears, the vast majority of the time, the men... Who I should point out, if they wished you harm, have the capacity to follow you until you are alone, simply aren't interested in causing you harm and despite possessing the means to do so if they wish, do not wish. Burrow down into it if it helps, but it doesn't change that any belief a woman has that a bear is less dangerous to her than a man isn't held up by fact and is purely a fabrication of her reading/watching/listening to so much modern social media that attempts to tell her she's constantly at risk of rape or death from men.

For more specific figures, I recommend you create a Bear Man stadium and lock 10,000 women in it, allow them into a secluded clearing at a home and deposit a random man or a random bear with her and record the results... And I promise I'll visit you in gaol when you're done, because they don't understand, but I know you're doing it for the betterment of humanity!

Okay, again, link me to these figures.

What do you mean again? This is the first time you asked, and you were the one quoting the figures... I can't believe the audacity of that statement made me come back to this...

Okay, let me search up some numbers.

I've found some, partially stolen from another conversation about this on Reddit... The shame...

So, apparently, there are around 234,000 instances of violence and sexual assault against women in the US each year. Now, this number will swing in favour of the bear, because this won't include women who commit crimes against women, repeat offenders which reduces the number of aggressive men, repeat victims who constantly return to the offender, etc, etc... But, okay, have some free points, bears. There are an estimated 333.3 million people in the US, so if we just say roughly half of those are female and ignore the left overs, that's 150,000,000 women. Picking random numbers of the times a woman passes a man, interacts with a man, in the same way we consider a person to have "Interacted" with a bear, which is to say having seen one "close" to them, they probably, technically, "Interact" with over 300... But let's call it 150 to be safe. This also swings numbers in favour of the bears being the safer creature, as just seeing a bear while walking would be considered an interaction with one, while a woman might literally see a thousand men if she's somewhere like New York and has a long commute. Again, however, let's favour the bear.

So this gives us roughly 8 trillion, 212 million, 500 thousand interactions between women and men in the US yearly, 234 thousand of which result in an assault or murder or so on. That's a 0.000000028% chance that any interaction with a man will result in harm. Not bad!

As for bears, it seems hikers have a 1 in 232,000 chance of being attacked by a bear. Now, the person who originally did this math plucked a 5% encounter rate from their backside, because there isn't statistics on it available. Playing by their numbers, that's a 1 in 11,600 chance of getting beared, making it a 0.0086207% chance to get attacked by a bear. That's a pretty significant upgrade over a man. You're well over 2,000 times more likely to get eaten by a bear than eaten by a man, unless you ask him nicely.

Now, at the moment, so far as I can see, all these numbers favour the bear - the number of incidents against women doesn't account for random acts of violence that happen to have a woman involved, like a brawl or a shoot out, repeat offenders who attack 10 women each before getting caught, reducing the number of offenders dramatically, women assaulting women, so on. The rate of bear interaction is also VASTLY swung in favour of the bears... And you might not think that at first, except to say that I think it's likely that what would be counted as an interaction with a bear if we knew about it, like the bear smelling you and choosing to walk the other way, or the bear seeing you and you not seeing it and it opting to go home, would Skyrocket the number of interactions you have with men daily if we used the same measure, effectively turning: "A man drove past me on the opposite side of the road and didn't stop, get out of his car and assault me" into a successful interaction with a man, driving the number of interactions a person would have with men on their way to work up over the thousands and making seeing a man maybe one of the safest things you can do except maybe staying in bed and refusing to leave the house.

So, there. Sorry to come back after I said I wouldn't. It was just so jarring for you to quote numbers at me, never ask me for numbers, then claim you're asking again as though I've refused to offer them. C'mon, man. I'm not a bear. You don't have to goad me like that.

No, see, here is where we've now gone back to square one. The figures show it's Very unusual behaviour for a man. Again, if we think about it, we interact with maybe hundreds of men each day, much closer and sometimes much more vulnerable and personal than we do with a bear, yet despite this, women aren't attacked 3-5 times a day. In fact, most women, despite being inches from men dozens of times a day, don't get attacked at all. This brings us back to the initial point where you pointed out statistics showing there are numerically more attacks by men and less by bears, but didn't take into account that women spend 24/7 surrounded by men, but not by bears, and when I mentioned that you said it wasn't about statistics.

You can't just say: "Men are more dangerous than bears", then have someone questions that logic, then say it's not about that logic, then come back to men being more dangerous than bears. The conversation becomes circular.

Unlikely as a woman. (x 3ish?)

But not as unlikely as it would be against bears. That's the point. You have agency against a man that you don't against a bear. Can a woman outrun a man? Often no... Can she outrun a bear? Far less likely. Bears get up to 48km/h, while Bolt is just under 44, and most men aren't Bolt.

Credit where it's due, though: If a man is planning to attack a woman, it's normally with the distinct purpose of doing something specifically to her, while a Bear might give up and look for easier prey if she's getting away or making life difficult. For the bear it's a case of: "Can I get more energy than I use by eating this pink ape?", for a man it's: "I've got to get her now. Can't have her getting back to town and telling people I tried to attack her!"

yeah. Feeding bears is illegal, because it creates a situation where a bear will approach people when its hungry which creates a bear that is unnaturally dangerous. But in a pinch you'd at least not pack up your lunch if you think your life is on the line.

I imagine that a bribe would at least slow them down.

I'm no bear expert, but I understand this changes from bear to bear. For example, I know a Polar Bear will stop and investigate literally anything you drop... So if one is chasing you, and you throw your hat, it'll stop chasing you to check out the hat, while, from what I'm told, a Brown Bear that has decided to kill you will run past anything you drop to kill you. Mind you, I don't think tossing off your clothes in an environment where you'd meet a Polar Bear is going to end much better. :( Just a different, slower way to die.

I think it's just which would you feel more in danger from if you encountered a lone one in the woods, before you know anything about them.

Sure, sure... Maybe it's just the ignorance of the average person as to how powerful and wild a bear can be? Maybe, because they are surrounded by men and can see evidence of men being frightening, their hind-brains focus on the danger that is present: Could I be killed by a box jellyfish? Maybe, but I'm not surrounded by box jellyfish at all times. Could I be killed by a car? Yes, and there's cars everywhere - Ergo, I'd rather be in a swimming pool with 10 box jellyfish than 10 cars!

Maybe we should get women to listen to that tape of that girl who called her mum while she was being eaten alive by a family of bears, or that dude who decided he was one with the bears and went to live with them. Maybe it would help link their minds to the potential danger of a bear, despite not personally seeing it very often.

Either way, this was cool, but that's enough bear for me. I've had all I can... Bear...

In A Relationship: The Man or the Bear? by TonyDiGerolamo in Comics

[–]NastyWetSmear 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

What proportion of Bear sightings result in attacks, do you think?

Not sure. Not many, I'd guess. Depends on the bear, the time of year, the luck of the camper and the bear.

What proportion of single man encounters with single women in the wilderness result in attacks to you think?

Not sure. Not many, I'd guess. Depends on the man the time of year, the luck of the camper and the man.

If your question is: Do I think bear attacks in the woods are as common as being attacked by men in the woods? It's a bit hard to measure those against each other. Bears don't normally follow you into the woods from the city, or invite you to the woods from the city. Bears also, however, don't pass you on the walking trail, smile and say good morning. If you're counting every encounter everyone ever had with a man in the woods vs an encounter everyone ever had with a bear in the woods, bears would be more dangerous by leagues, simply because camping areas, walking and hiking trails, observations spots, hunting locations, fishing locations all contain men that you're likely to meet alone, pumping the numbers up an astronomical amount compared to bear encounters.

On the other hand, the more you narrow the field, the more you tip it in one sides favour of the other: "Okay, but only men who are total strangers, when you're alone, after 9pm on a Friday night when they've been drinking." or "Okay, but only bears that came within 15 meters of you during mating season when they can smell other male bears around." - ultimately, humans send a lot more time in and around humans, which means, on average, you bump into a man in the woods thousands of times more than you do a bear, and are perfectly safe almost all of that time. On the other hand, you don't bump into many bears, and are perfectly safe almost all of the time... But once that math comes out in the wash, if there's 100 interactions with bears and 2 deaths, and 1,000,000 interactions with men and 2,500 deaths, That's a 2% kill ration on the bear and a 0.25% kill ration on the man.

End result - People think they are in more danger from a man because it happens numerically more, but that's because you spend a phenomenally huge amount of time around men, meaning the odds of meeting the one insane one go up. People think you're less likely to be killed by a shark, but that's because you don't spend anywhere near as much time around sharks. People think you won't get eaten by a bear because the attacks are rare, but the meetings are also rare. If the bear meetings were as common as the man meetings, alone, in the woods, at night, when the bear had been drinking?... Those stats wouldn't look as nice.

Then you have to take into account repeat offenders, bears and men, then you might want to take into account provocation - if you shot the bear, it's hard to call that a random, unprovoked bear attack, same with the dude... It gets complicated, but if we're just looking at bears and men alone in the woods, I'd say: Yeah, you're safer with a man.

... If that wasn't your point, boy, I'm sorry about all those words. :(

Being in the woods means that there's no help for the woman's if the man (or bear) is dangerous.

Yeah, that's why I assumed we were going that way. That being said, that's already a foregone conclusion with the bear. If the bear is going to attack you, they run faster than you, they are stronger than you, they have claws and teeth - It's really all up to the bear how that goes. With a fellow human you have agency: Maybe you can run faster, maybe you can fight him off, maybe you can ask him to leave, maybe you can bribe him, maybe you can act so crazy he just wants to go away...

Mind you! None of that would impact the nature of the question: Are you safer with a bear or a man, I think, as it requires that the man already be a danger that you need to negotiate. I would say, if you have to convince the man not to murder you, it should be counted under the More dangerous count. While it makes the bear strictly more dangerous, as in you can't stop it once it starts but you might be able to stop the man, it goes against the spirit of the question, I think.

Okay, How inaccurate do you think it is?

If the person's choice is: "Bear because there's only 2 bear attacks on women a year, but there's 2,500 a year in the US and Canada", I think it's: "Wildly, dangerously inaccurate". If it's: "Bear because men are more dangerous", I think it's: "Very".

I believe that the man or bear thought experiment is set in the wilderness.

Yes, but what I was driving at is that, in your day to day life, a person likely has upwards of 300 "Man interactions", assuming they are classified the same as "Bear interactions", which, I assume, cover being close to a bear. Are you saying that you think being alone in the wood would be enough to change a person's reaction? - Most interactions on the street don't allow for a rape or murder, but being in the wood provides opportunity, therefore motive? That sort of thing?

People are talking a lot about physical stuff, but it's also true of social stuff and mental stuff. Starting a club is harder then joining a club that exists and has members. Getting a job is harder than going to your job you've already done for 2 years. Starting a conversation with someone you don't know is harder than continuing a conversation with a friend. It's pretty universal.

The "Man or Bear" thing is about which a woman would feel safer with. It's not statistics. It's perception of risk.

If their perception of risk is wildly inaccurate, then the conversation needs to shift to that. That would be like saying: "I don't eat fruit because it contains live bees. This isn't about if or not fruit actually contains live bees, it's about how I choose to live my life."... Really, you can frame your fruit issue however you want, but addressing the fact that fruit doesn't contain live bees should be priority number one.

Besides, I wasn't making a comment on the purpose of the discussion, I was just addressing the statistics you, yourself, raised. It's especially important to look at them logically if someone were about to base their choice on bumping into a bear vs bumping into a man on them, but believed that they showed an elevated risk per random man compared to per random bear.

But by the same token seeing a brown bear in the woods isn't a death sentence.

That's true, and that was also part of my point. It wouldn't be fair to say every contact with a bear is doomed to end in being eaten alive while on the phone with your mother over 3 hours or so. In fact, for every reported "Bear Interaction", I bet there's another, undocumented one where the person simply never tells anyone what happened, or they don't even see the near by bear.

I'll bet there's even a few where both parties, bear and person, are totally unaware, like some Warner Brothers cartoon skit where they both hear something move, lean up against the same tree, but peak around the opposite sides and totally miss each other.

With that said, you likely still pass more random men on a hiking trail than you do bears, let alone when you get back to the city, catch a bus, go to work and so on... Unless you work in a zoo, specifically caring for the bears, I guess? Then it might be a toss up.

I am the original comment. I am on topic - the point is that it's difficult to legally punish false allegations simply based on "No proof" because that isn't evidence that the allegation is false and it discourages other possible, future allegations.

If you're trying to say that you want me to keep the examples relevant specifically to HR, then it kind of remains the same argument - If it requires evidence, then I can corner someone in a bathroom and threaten to murder them at work, because it's just them and me in the bathroom. That's what I mean by HR having their hands tied in this regard because they face backlash if there's a complaint that they didn't action, but they also face backlash if there's a complaint that they do action and it turns out to be false.

YYeeessss, I think it already is, but you have to be careful with stuff like that.

I'd love to see people who fling accusations around get a swift and serious case of justice, but the last thing you want is to make reporting a crime a coin toss on if or not you end up getting arrested for doing so. I think most places consider making false allegations a crime, but you need to have an airtight case showing that it was a malicious allegation and not just someone who felt honestly in danger but couldn't bring enough proof for a guilty verdict, yeah?

I've observed, with HR, the race is usually to become the accuser. Once you say that someone else is doing something sexist, racist, otherist, it almost seems that this instantly becomes law - the accusation is true and cannot be proven false, even if you prove it's false. The only evidence offered is someone coming in, frowning and saying they feel attacked... You can come in, frown and say you weren't attacking them, but for some reason that equal evidence isn't sufficient. Additional evidence, like having a dozen other people say they didn't believe there was anything negative going on still doesn't seem to outweigh the original weight of the complaint.

It's hard to blame HR. They aren't a court. They pretty much just have to try and keep the wheels from being squeaky as best they can, but it's very easy for people to weaponise that unbalanced mix of: The total authority to fire you because of a complaint and The absolute lack of authority to investigate a complaint in full and fire the other person for raising it maliciously.

That's not really: "On the other hand", that's a bit of a misunderstanding of how those statistics would work. For them to be a simple 1 to 1, women would have to pass equally as many bears in the street each day as they do men, at which stage you could say: "See? Far fewer woman are killed by bears!"

... Except that I suspect you'd be saying: "Holy shit, we need to do something about all the bears killing people in the street!".

As for bears being aggressive, I think that's as much case by case as the average man is. Mother bear with cubs near by? Guess you'll die. Hungry and you're hanging around? Sadly, I hear bears eat people alive, so it won't be over quickly. On the other hand, it could be a warm, summer day, no cubs, no mating season, plenty of food and the bear will trundle pass utterly indifferent to you. It's pretty hard to predict. Unlike a man, you can't really ask a bear what it's doing or why it's there, and baring you having a big'ol gun, that kind of ends your autonomy to address the bear situation. After that it's all down to how the bear feels about you in that specific moment.

Is this meant to be a retelling of Romeo and Juliet that takes place in the 20's or something? The idea being that a black woman and a white man would be from "Two warring families" in that period?

Seems really on the nose to insert that. It's a classic and it's generally frowned upon to modify Shakespeare in any way. It's also pretty banal... Yeah, I get it, you're obsessed with black people. At least if it had been a Feudal Japanese Samurai and a Christian, or a Hundred Years War French and English person it would have been an original(ish, for the modern era) take on the idea of people in a feud who fall in love.

I've felt that way before. I've even felt it about people who are more than conventionally attractive. People who I can look at and say: "Yeah, she's beautiful."... And then just feel nothing about at all.

I assume it's some evolutionary, lizard brain quirk. Something instinctive in me that tells me, on some biological level that I can smell or see but not consciously understand, that we wouldn't be a good pair to be breeding? My eyes tell me that they are beautiful, my brain tells me they are nice, but some instinctive ape centre inside me says: "No, our kids would have lung problems and would die trying to climb their first tree. NEXT!"

Love, lust and desire are odd things like that. It's like a woman describing her ideal man to a person who matches every criteria she's describing and then going off with someone else who seems to have none of those qualities - we might know, intellectually, what's good about a person but be biologically driven to get something else despite ourselves. Very odd.

I don't know about the Alpha, Beat, Gamma etc specifics, but there are certainly men and women who seem to naturally find a place in a social structure with one or more people who they instantly defer to. It might be hard to point one out in the media, as I guess you have to be a little more assertive and naturally charismatic to be there in the first place? But odds are good that, if you think about your social circles, you'll instantly be able to know who is sort of the "Central" person - The one who does things and invites other people to those things and when they aren't around the group feels a little lost.

For want of a better term, those people could be called an Alpha, while the others that naturally let them take control of the group are Betas. Thanks to a lot of this online chatter we kind of look down on the term "Beta" and think less of them, but that's sort of like thinking less of a Sargent because he isn't a Captain. Groups need different people to work, I think. Everyone brings something... Those who seem to be the centre of the group bring that energy, while others bring other things that makes a group work together.

These aren't plucked randomly. They're the ones hunger striking in support of the protesters who have been arrested. They're the 13 most likely to have ties to palestine in the entire campus.

No, I think that's optimistic. That's like saying that the Black Lives Matter protestors would all, most likely, have ties to George Floyd or the black community. With protests, especially on university campuses, it's just as often students wanting to skip classes, students wanting attention, students who have no idea what's actually happening and just like the most popular or unpopular causes. There's even videos of people at these kinds of protests being interviewed and having no real idea what's happening... Though, admittedly, those are viewed and popular Because of their absurdity.

Yes you did. You don't know that they've never been to palestine, and you can't know that they're never going to go.

No, I didn't. I made a guess based on the most reasonable assumption possible. You just want to make it seem like the statement needs to be a dissertation with sources in order to be most likely true, as opposed to a reasonable thing to assume in casual conversation.

No. You said that they have been and are never going to go to palestine.

Now you're attempting semantics and sophism. If you can't read or hear something without taking only the most literal interpretation, you're acting on bad faith or you're struggling through life. I don't need to prove the absolute validity of every statement in order to speak it - I might tell you the sun will rise tomorrow. You're welcome to demand I produce actual evidence beyond: "Well, it always does", but it's not required. This isn't a court of law.

Hopefully that's enough, because while I love a good sealion like anyone else, I think we've reached the end of the conversation... Which I will assume you agree because when I sealioned back at you to show the worthlessness of these kinds of questions, you ignored them.

Nothing says: "You are loved" like an automated message from a bot triggered by someone who hates you telling it you want to kill yourself.

The point of the questions is question your assumption that they've never been to Palestine.

There's no point questioning the assumption. As I pointed out, it's a safe one. If you plucked 100 students from the universities all across the world, I would happily wager that 0% of them have been to Palestine. It's not a common event, most students can barely afford a trip to Europe on a gap year to "Find Themselves", and of the ones who can afford to travel, very few people are picking Palestine. On the off chance you found one who had been, all you'd be doing is showing, as I pointed out, that outliers in data exist. All you're doing is trying to pick apart a simple, obvious statement in an effort to diminish an overall point, and it isn't working.

No. We're talking about the 17 students who were on the hunger strike.

Good, so we're agreed? The chances are ridiculously slim.

You're making up stuff you don't know about these students? Why?

I haven't made up anything about them. I've stated a simple, numerical fact: In any university, the odds that these kids have been to Palestine is so slim that I feel comfortable saying: "They haven't been to Palestine" and, if any of them had, it would be so few that all it would do is prove that in any point of data there's always some floating incident that sits on the outside of the mean. It doesn't take a lot of knowledge to know that these student protests are mostly performative. They are people who are swayed by the latest, popular trends and causes and flock to things that make them appear righteous.

The usual reason people make stuff up is because the argument they want to make is fallacious. That's probably the case here.

Now the tables are turned: How do you know I'm wrong? How do you know I'm making it up? It seems very reasonable to say that very few people from the US are visiting Palestine before their 30th birthday. Something like 4 million people visit Palestine each year in a world with over 7 billion people. That means 0.05% of the world population visits there each year, and that's on the assumption that none of those are people repeating the trip for any number of reasons. Given the most common and popular places to visit for younger people doesn't include Palestine, and given that it's often a dangerous place, you tell me why you'd assume I'm making it up, as opposed to being simply reasonable?

So with the understanding that all odds are in favour of these people never having been to Palestine, why would you say that "Most people make stuff up because they want to make a fallacious argument"? and assume that's probably the case here? Do you know me personally? Have we talked about this subject before?...

... Or were you just making a reasonable assumption based on what you know to be true?

No, but these are pointless questions. Does everyone visit Palestine before university?
My point stands true for the majority. You could pick just about any statement that holds true for the majority and cherry pick specific circumstances under which there are outliers. It doesn't prove the rule at all.

Did you have a greater point you wanted to make?
