The Slippery Slope [Jun. 16th, 2008|11:19 am]
[Current Mood |blankblank]

If you are using the "slippery slope" argument, that's the easiest way to determine that you are:
1. Wrong.
2. Motivated by fear and not logic.

Do not ever try to use this tactic on me and expect me to be swayed or impressed. You know what else?

It's hard for me to have much sympathy for how busy you are considering I just worked a 50 hour week in 3.5 days and am at pain level 9. Dear Craig, please send ninjas.

I wish I had the day off and the slippery slope would lead that to happen. Alas I do not.

Ha! Thanks. :) Craig is going to make my pain better by sending out Ninjas to kill me, but they will throw glitter first to make it seem like a nice surprise even though that option cost him extra.

Well, my ninjas are good at telling off annoying phone calls, hiding highlighters, and making my Y key stick. They also like to drink my glass of water when I'm not looking. They sound like a pain, but when I need them to defend my fortress of paperwork, they've got my back.
The glitter sounds nice, though.

My mother is CONSTANTLY using that term.
it's like saying, "goin down a rocky road" or some lame crap like that.

Good for you woman!

Be strong and I send you strength and love to carry on with the amazing life that you (and Craig) are building for yourselves.

"goin down that rocky road" means that it makes them uncomfortable, not that they have a real reason to oppose it. Nothing is wrong with it except "they can see one thing leading to another". The logic doesn't work. It's like saying that because some people drink and drive that by getting into a car you are causing your own death. Maybe it DOES work that way for some people, but that doesn't mean getting into a car equals death.
