^proof that an argument of emotion can be compelling when done right. well done
until you got to the FACT part
That was me being facetious. It's one of my many flaws, being too subtle
Don't be distracted, though - just 'cos I said it in jest, doesn't make it any less true.
So is the "doesn't make it any less true" facetious, also?
Probably not - not sure facetiousness was quite where I was going, there.
Cos "true" is synomymous with "FACT"
I think there's a subtle difference, though.
Just because I may have been being facetious, arrogant, hubristic, doesn't detract from it actually being true...
What you have described is a personal opinion on what the criteria are for coolness - for you
I'm merely parroting the general concept of "cool", and the one which this one begs, borrows and steals from - the TG coolwall.
Not 'facts' or 'truths'
How is it not true that the concept of "cool" is distinct and different from being "something I like" or "something I think is good"? Otherwise, we'd just have a likewall or a goodwall.
But we don't. We have a coolwall, for all it's glory, charm, and failings.
- And to be honest your post is highly dictatorial
Oh but that was part of it's charm.
And it was deliberate.
And from the reading of your reply, it worked
- And doesn't offer any insight whatsoever
Sorry, gotta take issue with you, there.
It offers plenty of insight.
That is utterly uncool
See what I mean about not really getting it?
Not adding any insight would actually contribute to it being
You can have a different criteria for cool if you want. But you can't tell me that you have the truth. I personally think your criteria is bollocks
Good for you.
How's that working out for you?
You should have read some previous posts perhaps to see that it is alreday acknowledged not everyone has same criteria for things being 'cool'
That's OK - everybody has the right to be wrong.
But fair play - people not wanting to really get it, is no sin. But what they, and from the sounds of it, you, really want is a "I LIKE" wall, or a "goodwall".
However, it is my opinion that if given free choice you go out select stuff for use on your precious steeds - and you have gone and selected stuff that your 'truth' and 'facts' tell you are uncool...
Then I'd be intrigued to read an explanation of that
1. I'm far from convinced you'd be intrigued.
2. Whether I understand "cool", or not, doesn't mean I live my life by it, or even buy into such a nebulous, peurile notion.
If Shimano isn't cool to you, get rid of it all... Do it... Do it now
You still don't really get this "cool" thing, do you.
Shimano isn't cool, simply because on the whole, it isn't. Doesn't mean it isn't good. Doesn't mean I don't like some of it. Doesn't mean I'm remotely concerned if all my bikes are uncool or have uncool bits on.
