General Discussion / Critical Thinking Article
« Last post by Jason Knight on 15 May 2022, 03:08:32 pm »
I just wanted to post an article I put up on Medium that doesn't quite fit my normal topics.

https://deathshadow.medium.com/facts-can-be-used-to-lie-a-lesson-in-critical-thinking-a961fe2f949c

There are too many lies on just about every topic taken as fact, but worse SUPPORTED by facts. The lie of omission and falsehood of "share" both contribute to these false conclusions, so I thought I'd outline how/where/why it happens.

Because honestly I see right through it, and wonder why the blazes nobody else does.

Stone me, how old are you, then?  ???

John was just over 77 when he  shuffled off this mortal coil.

Oh my godness gracious me, I've just checked your profile
and it actually shows your age to be 1018;D

Methuselah eat your heart out.  :-\

Bummer. Liked reading his posts, even though much of what he said was beyond my ken.

Seems like every time I turn around, another youngster is biting the dust.

Bugger, and I was working on a long-ish reply to his most recent question.

We never saw 100% eye to eye, but he kept me on my toes. Even when I disagree I like to hear and see contrary viewpoints. Keeps you honest and reflective.

He'll be missed.

Hi @Jason Knight,

Have you made any progress on the "next-gen paladin" project in your copious spare time :)

My Freenom.com domain summary site of the Paladin Project is no longer available and. It was once Free but now about twelve dollars is required to resurrect the domain... so I have moved the domain to the following subdomain:

In case you have forgotten the following is a demo of the latest source code:

HTML / CSS / Re: HTML5 tags controversy at work...again

Oh, and I railed against their use as they ARE from a semantic standpoint idiotic redundancies. The requirement of headers in SECTION only exacerbating that. But I still use them now... why?

Because they reduce the number of DIV and classes I end up pissing into the markup. I have come to think of them as non-semantic structural hooks. More so since all the fancy CSS 2.1 selectors are now real-world deployable in the post IE world.
