    So your response is "connect the dots." Brilliant.

    Failed again. What a clown.
    Too bad the goalposts are not moving for you.

    Your quotation marks were there simply because you were directly quoting Valade16, whose figurative reference was the starting point of this segment (and was not in quotation marks).

    Keep pushing them goalposts for if at first you don’t succeed…

    And I admit to using the word "supper."
    No I did not. I accused you of giving a bootstraps speech, not using that specific term. You give a variation of the same speech on here all the time.

    I'm surprised you haven't saved yourself the time and just written it down in a word document to copy and paste as needed.

    I save the copy n paste for spiels about "supper."

    And, by the way, taking advantage of opportunities to make it on your own………true-ism. You may want to copy n paste that. Maybe make a sign for you little bulletin board. You can put it right on top of that nugget from BO where he says you didn't do that on your own.

    You talking about succeeding……need to give that some thought.

    I'll just have someone else do it and then claim I did it on my own.
