Wading for the Sun by jayalders Wading for the Sun by jayalders
The warm summer sun, waves peeling, the mesmerizing light reverberating through the ever-changing forms of the ocean and the sight of a beautiful girl wading towards the sea. For many of us, these things bring us passion, tranquility, maybe even envy.

Shame about the silly foreground, although you probably has a cheeky moment. The background work is amazing and beautiful and is lost in the caricature. Wonderful use of colour and texture in scenics. I haven't seen such a striking sea and sky interpretation in a quite a long time. Well done. Only spoiled by the body concept and the butt.

Just because someone throws you a ball doesn't mean you have to catch it. Same goes for negativity :)

So you're just leaving without even bothering to refute what I've said? I mean, go right ahead and leave if you want, but I'm going to take an absence of an explanation as admittance that I was right. And I'm not trying to use that whole "argument of silence" deal right now, either. This is pretty much a simple yes or no question of whether or not you had something to say about that or if you're just leaving so you can avoid it. I'll hardly be disappointed either way, though, considering the satisfaction I got from just how long it took you to get what I was doing even though I was explaining myself and my motives almost constantly.

And you know, if you really want to try it, I'm totally up for a real conversation elsewhere. I would have thought you'd be more curious about that after how much interest you showed toward the subject.

Welp, looks like I got played, then. It's encouraging that you've at least understood what I've said, even if it was all a childish game with blatant misdirection (et tu is also a fail, and not worth including in argument), backpedaling and outright deception. Had you maintained a coherent argument and position throughout, you would have received answers to your questions -- if they were even real.

Still, I fell for your ploy in the end, once in trust and again, now, in disappointment at both of us. Enjoy your victory.

I haven't been biased by the "gotta be right" syndrome while talking to you, you know. I'm simply carrying on the same conversation that you choose to contribute to. If you wanted to change the subject completely I'd go right along with it. Hell, you could even send me a casual note discussing some sort of television program while we're having this separate debate and I'd treat it like a normal conversation with any respectable person (so long as you address me in a respectable manner as well). This thread here is where the game is.

Also, yes, I do see how ridiculously pointless the whole "argument from silence" idea is. That's why I chose to use that method of persuasion after you tried to pull it on me first. I was hoping you'd catch on.*

But anyway, judging by what I know of your nature of replies and how you handle certain prompts in debate along with the fact that you haven't actually provided any counter whatsoever to the idea that you're being hypocritical in this entire situation (or to anything I've said about your motives for speaking to me) aside from just saying "no that's not it", am I to assume that you simply don't have any other explanations for that particular subject? I mean, sure, there's this whole idea of postponing communication for the purpose of starting over and having a "normal" conversation, but considering that I've been throwing that idea at you for a while now, it does seem oddly convenient that you'd choose now to go for that option.


*Well, sort of. I was half hoping you'd catch on to that little jab and half hoping that it would motivate you to continue replying again even after you had tried making such a spectacular exit. You see, a big part of this game is to see how long I can keep a person involved in the conversation without having to change my own "views", and if I get bored of a person or no longer desire to hear from them anymore, I try to see how quickly I can persuade them to give up commenting without actually bringing up that I'm no longer interested in them. It's a strategy game, really, knowing when and where to write comments of certain natures to get exactly the kind of response I want. Call that childish if you must, but if somebody's going to start getting aggressive at me, then I'm just going to try to entertain myself with it. I don't actually do this in normal debates, either. When somebody wants to have an intelligent exchange of ideas without a bunch of petty insults and blatant attempts belittle somebody else, I'm all for it. I like to learn, or at the very least, get somebody else's point of view on an educational subject.
