That was no discussion, that was education. Tchrist was unknowledgeable and I was his teacher.
But you are forgiven. Americans typically can't tell educations from discussions.
Do atoms exist? Discuss.
God does exist! Educate.
Speaking of education:
@Catija the OP is wrong about that. Goat, here, does not mean "a bad person". It literally means a literal goat. If you check with Chekhov or Nemirovitch-Danchenko, you will see that the OP here invented that bit out of thin air. "Goat" can have the figurative sense "bad person", and so the saying can take on that additional meaning in context, and the OP can use it that way. But that's adding a layer of complexity that makes things utterly untranslatable. It's hard enough to translate the actual saying; if we must account for a word play on top of it, we're out of luck. — RegDwigнt ♦11 mins ago
Funny how we're sometimes asked to translate something from another language, and the OP themselves are wrong about what it actually means in that language.
Oh no oh no oh no. Where shall I keep it. My fridge is full.
Can I plant it next to a tomato?
@Cerberus also, I can actually quote said passages from Chekhov or Nemirovitch-Danchenko, so you can see for yourself that they aren't, and can't be, talking about "bad, abusive, stupid people". Unattractive, perhaps.
Oxford defines alpha male as:
A man tending to assume a dominant or domineering role in social or professional situations

Actually, consider this a synonym request for Alpha Female/Alpha Woman.
I know Alpha Female exists and is used a lot, but I am r...
Say, speaking of "what a dick" . . . I am so tired of QA people who C&P large chunks of output and offer them as evidence of a test failure without pointing to a single issue they think is a problem. Uh, yeah, that's some output. Looks good to me, but if you have a problem you'll have to, oh, I don't know, tell me what the frickin' problem is.
@Robusto But it didn't past the test, so you, dear software engineer, must have done something wrong. here's the output my blind QA tool gave me back, and professional dignity dictates that I pass it along to you blindly also. Because bias.
@Robusto haha youtube comments. those guys are dicks.
there's a sitcom recently where there's a running joke about this really great guy who does absolutely everything and ahas experienced everything and written books about it, is asked about that time where to survive some snowy mountain top disaster, was reduced to eating his friends foot to stay alive (I think the friend survives too).
and then every body makes comments about 'that time he hate his friend'.
