    Have you noticed that many of your thoughtful previous posts have disappeared?)

    Perhaps you should be even far-more-thoughtful in your future ones...

    I've personally found that the greatest center of thought is Argentine — because they constantly tell everyone in the world that they are!

    'piece of crap' 2020 is definitely disturbed by the prospect of the AstraZeneca /Oxford University vaccine being a success.....

    In line with his bs, d'you think we can presume it’s safe to say he will refuse to take it when/if available ?
    He could always take the Sputnik V, the one that made Putin grow a pair of boobs.

    Re your last post under ‘Bolsonaro slams environment NGOs’, hope you win your wager with the Maersk manager......the idea of having to give a democrap supporter a case of Don Melchor is like adding insult to injury.

    Nasty pc 2020 is a pathetic imitation of TFW that has finally disapeared after having a complete nervous breakdown... (I'm happy he's gone.)

    The Maersk manager is actually a very pleasant individual, but unfortunately brainwashed by the media about Bolsonaro and Trump. Fortunately he's well compensated, but it will still be a painful wager to settle.

    I've made a few more friendly side bets with friends, but the entire case of Don Melchor is the largest.

    Regarding Russian technology — many times what they create, actually does the job with an acceptable result, but it will never be fully trusted.

    I concede that they do manufacture some amazing technology — although I should also mention that the very first automobile purchase I made was a Lada!

    I'm enjoying watching Trimonde and FWT having a go at each other on another thread, (“Argentina regrets presence of FI at Rural show in MVD”.)... hilarious to see the FWT getting a piece of his own medicine....

    Yep, 'piece of crap' 2020 is another nut case.....to be ignored.

    I find that “very nice, pleasant people”, usually lean to the left....must be the pink lenses they see everything through, the socialist utopia, which does not exist.

    Yesterday, read on the news that K.Harris, while campaigning referred to the “Harris Administration” (???)....does she think she's already been elected ? and sounds like she's pushed Sleepy Joe aside....to make things even funnier, Sleepy Joe also mentioned the “Harris -Biden administration”......has he demoted himself ? without knowing it ?.....guess we'll have to wait until he wakes up, to find out....

    You should bet with 3 more people who are staunch Trump supporters, that he will lose....4 bottles of Don Melchor apiece....if Sleepy Joe wins, you get 12 bottles to give to your Maersk friend...LOL...

    The first imports of Lada cars / jeeps arrived in Brazil in 1991 I think, when Collor opened up imports to foreign cars. It was relatively cheap, and sold pretty well, but that didn't last very long....but, today, any ancient Ladas, in good condition (rare) command a fairly good price, especially the jeeps.

    He is ragging TiTMonde, and not doing a bad job of it either.

    Hasn’t even got up to full speed copy/paste/link mode yet, wonder if TiTMonde knows what he has let himself in for.

    They deserve each other, well matched, quite romantic really.

    Thanks for the link!

    (Sort of like a battle between a stinkbug and a cockroach over a rancid crumb of bread.)

    I'm staying away from that debate because there are several holding up very well for the Falklands.

    Jack

    I had the sedan, which was a copy of the superior Fiat. The Jeep was from a different company Niva which was marketed under the Lada name. The improved jeep is still being marketed and even sold in Chile.

    Ladas were tough as hell and easy to repair, but when I changed to Japanese vehicles, it was heaven. (Today, as you know — we've assumed the leases of BMWs that were repossessed by the distributer.)

    Thanks for your wine proposal, but I'm convinced Trump will win — although I read the Democrats are planning a voter mail snafu to confuse the results. If it's a close race, the results may take days.

    Meanwhile, we're busy preparing for the 18th celebration and fully expect the health authorities to try and stop us. We've made several psyop preparations, including health guideline brochures, and even a health safety agenda as officially we are having a meeting for essential employees.

    I'll probably be penalized and scolded, but we obtained a permit and had it notorized as well as pre-notifing the local Carabineros of the meeting.

    Parties of more than 5 adults are banned, but I'm optimistic we'll succeed

    ¡Saludos!

    As you say, it's only round 3 of 10 in the TiTMonde x FWT slugging match, but I think (the misinformed, stubborn) TiTMond is getting his titties whipped.....Wow, can't believe it, I have just supported the FWT....but it's for a noble cause....

    Your “Go educate yourself a bit before you go taking on heavyweights like Tel”, to TitMonde was great.

    The old proverb, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” might be applicable here, but I'd rather not push it...


    Chicureo

    There are Niva/Lada jeep clubs here, and the vehicle is revered by their members.....like any vintage vehicles, they'll always have a place in people's hearts.

    Well, looks like you've covered all your bases for yr party tomorrow....hope all goes well....might be useful to invite the head of the local carabineros to the party, just in case the health authorities turn up....if they do, he can force them to join the party.....why can't everyone enjoy the feast together ??

    A surprising turn of events I must admit, however I do feel this is a match made in heaven. Perhaps LDS has a rival.

    A somewhat “tongue in cheek” comment, however our Tel is a heavyweight when compared to TiTMonde, especially after the combat training we have given Tel.

    TiTMonde has no idea of what he has let himself in for, not just because he is “off his tits” as we say, but because now every time he posts TFW will remind him:

    Who engaged in an act of illegal force?
    Who lost that issue?
    Who doesn't have to engage in dispute resolution?
    Who is up the provable creek without a paddle?

    ad tedium, ad nauseam, ad infinitum.

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer Twat.

    There is balance in the Universe.

    Uh-oh....you've momentarily distracted the FWT from his battle with TitMonde......you have screwed up his concentration.

    But as you say, a match made in heaven...deep down, a really nice couple....hope FWT doesn't ignore LDS, it won't make him happy.

    Anyway, after FWT declares himself the winner, I think he'll realize what's important in his life....LDS and the Lulla doll....heard that the latter can now be purchased in Canada with two outfits....the old inmates' black 'n white striped uniform, and the more modern orange version of the jumpsuit. Even comes with 9 fingers.

    Its humour, satire, conversation, repartee, not a scientific paper or a statement to a court, it is NOT an assertion or an argument, it is a piss take!

    It only has to be funny, clearly not to you, but it was about you so that is understandable.

    Mate, just a joke, lighten up, being so intense all the time is not good for your blood pressure or you will end up just like TiTMonde, shouting at shadows.

    The FWT does not have a sense of humour....not surprsing.... I mean, he joined the RAF - or so he says - to do something meaningful, but was sent to clean the bogs.....not that cleaning bogs isn't meaningful...it is !
    When he retired, all he could afford was to live in his Ma's basement.
    His only friends are LDS and the Lulla doll, who can't speak to him....no wonder he has become bitter and thinks the world is against him.

    By the fact he abandoned the match with TitMonde in the 5th round, one can deduce no winner was declared.... this must've got him pissed off, after all, he was the one that was shouting louder...th4, should've won. No fairness in this world, how nasty.

    “When you pull ...” Of far greater satisfaction is seeing you reduced solely to personal attacks.
    'Those that lose the argument and are left with only personal attacks, are called 'losers'.
    The Narcissist's Dilemma: They Can Dish It Out, But...
    Ancient fears about not being accepted are never that far from the surface, which is why narcissists must forever be on their guard with anyone who might disbelieve or doubt them. For any external expression of doubt can tap into their own self-doubts.

    Afaic, although not the ideal way to go about things, it is almost inevitable to avoid attacking you personally.....I'm sure you don't remember, conveniently of course, that it was you who started to label everyone you didn't agree with, or those who stuck to the facts, a liar.....look up your own 'history'....you don't know how to debate, you try to disqualify everyone right from the start.....your constant use of quotes, although childish, is evidence of that.

    And as you always base your replies and assertions on your personal convictions - many times biased - not on the facts, that calls for adequate responses which you take personally. You demand proof from everyone, yet don't hold yourself to the same standard. Why ?

    As to your personal life, your fetishes, although they are definitely 'your' problems, and no one else's, it's just too hard to resist taking the piss out of you....you open yourself up to it....but don't worry, you have deserved it, just like the mug you won at the fair for being the best bog cleaner.

    Regarding your theory “The Narcissist's Dilemma: They Can Dish It Out, But...”
    Sure I can dish it out...as you've seen....but you are the only one whining about it.

    Well, you did “abandon the guns” when you had TiTMond on the ropes, white lanyard for you there.

    And you have an advantage, to fool will answer you, where he won’t answer us.

    You said : “.....I said about proof not required”

    He is questioning you because he thinks you've usurped his throne.....he doesn't realize that to all effects, he IS as good as dead.....just forgot to lie down.

    Shifting the burden
    Fallacious shifting of the burden of proof occurs if someone makes a claim that needs justification, then demands that the opponent justify the opposite of the claim. The opponent has no such burden until evidence is presented for the claim.
