We are all aware of the mutiny that can happen when one begins to compare PCs and Macs. Any devoted Mac lover has made it their purpose to seek out all PC lovers and convert them in to Mac users. And when one steps over to the Mac side it’s something to brag about.
The following “comment-ary” follows one such “conversion”.
“Better than I expected!” – Justin
Another convert! HUZZAH!
Alert the presses! I’m calling Jobs immediately. It’s over Beasley, you’re on the mac train now.
Reminds me of a “Friends” episode:
Phoebe: I can’t believe you caved.
Phoebe: You just abandoned your whole belief system! I mean, before, I didn’t agree with you, but at least I respected you. How, how, how are you going to go into work tomorrow? How, how are you going to face the other science guys? How, how are you going to face yourself?
Lenny, you do realize you just compared devoted PC users to atheists who believe in evolution, while the idea of enjoying a mac is compared to belief that there is a God? Yeah, that just happened.
Nice one Jonna. So true.
Actually, I merely pointed out that an analog existed in the series of events in the episode and the series of events here. It would not follow that any truth claim can be inferred simply because parallel set of circumstances exists. Conclusions about the truth or falsity of a proposition must be derived from the supporting premises of the proposition itself.
The passage in Luke 16:1-8 is a good example of a passage where this type of mistake is often made. Jesus, using the analogy of an unjust steward preparing for his coming dismissal is not to be understood as an endorsement to cheat others who may fire you; He is simply using an illustration emphasizing that even as the steward, who is evil, sees the importance of planning for his future needs. So how much more should the righteous man plan for his future life in the Kingdom?
Allow me to sum up what Lenny is saying… “Blah blah (analog or analogy?) blah blah blah Lenny compares what he said to what Jesus said blah blah…” and for the last part I may need clarification as I am unsure if Lenny just called Justin an evil or a righteous man?
Alex: Every cultist I’ve ever met has similarly dismissed a reasonable presentation in order to justify their own views.
Alex, I can’t believe you joined a cult and allowed them to teach you how to make jokes on facebook. How could you?!
The cult of Jobs is powerful and its minions are many.
Lenny, let me remind you that this whole conversation stemmed from your secular quotation of a television show that given your spot on recollection of it’s material leads me to believe that you are just as much into a cult of “Friends” that I am in a cult of so called “Jobs”.
For the record, the quote above was pieced together from what I actually said. There was a single feature which I said was better than I expected. Therefore I regret (well…) to inform all parties that there has NOT been a conversion. I am merely a victim of the liberal media. The end.
How dare you compare me to the liberal media, Justin! I am neither liberal, nor the media. The end.
This entire thread should be in The National Museum of Misrepresentation and also in The National Museum of PC Users who slip and reveal their true, but deeply hidden love of Macintosh.
not all pc users are terrorists, but most terrorists use pcs… wait, what’s the discussion here? I’m confused.
