sit up straight. you'll never meet the buddha with such rounded shoulders.
Only you can seem charming whilst correcting someone. You should have been a (sexy) librarian. :-)
i should add that this conversation was a little longer and included some friendly chit chat-type tweets. AND that sexy librarian is one of my dream jobs, along with gentleman farmer, roustabout, foley artist, and dog massage therapist.
THANK you. I feel like I see that phrase all over the place to mean "to raise the question," and no one seems to know that it actually describes a logical fallacy . . . C'mon, people.
On a happy note: Reading about "to beg the question" on Wikipedia just led me to learn the phrase "euphemism treadmill." Yay! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphemism_treadmill#Euphemism_treadmill
oh my god, euphemism treadmill is a beautiful thing. and i'm so glad you approve of my spreading the word about begging the question. i've even heard it misused on bbc radio, horrors!
Sounds like my girl!: a circus worker who erects and dismantles tents, cares for the grounds, and handles animals and equipment: a person with no permanent home or regular occupation; also : one who stirs up trouble
As an actual librarian, I second MC's comment.
This might be the philosophy teacher in me, but isn't avoiding the question just raising it for someone else to ask?
that is DEFINITELY the philosophy teacher in you!
