    Seriously, dude, I'm not here to defend my knowledge of this. I never copped in in the first place. I don't know any more than what I've said already. Sorry I can't help you any further.
    Lol, you came here to debate, but now you don't want to when you can't offer any argument yourself.

    I don't know everything, dude. Never said I did.

    Quick, explain the details of quantum mechanics! You came here to debate.

    I'm just asking you to explain what you are defending. I'm not defending quantum mechanics, it's completely irrelevant to what we are discussing.

    I have explained it to the extent of my knowledge of it. I'm not interested in defending it any more. If you have your own knowledge to share, feel free. Otherwise, we just don't know much about it, do we?

    Could it be because I've cast a ton of doubt into your belief on "saved" jobs? Don't get me wrong, jobs have been saved, but there is no way to calculate it accurately.

    No, it couldn't be.

    Then why shirk away when I actually try to get you to explain how easy it is to record saved jobs?

    I am too lazy to go look up the details. I make no claims about knowing them. You can go look them up if you want.

    I showed you what I found and you made at half-hearted attempt at responding to it because you said that Yahoo answers is unreliable. In most cases it's going to be right, so where is your evidence to the contrary?

    Let's get something straight - Yahoo answers is just not a source, period. Anyone can post there, just like this forum.

    This is a side issue. I don't want to get dragged into it. I don't have time. You may conclude whatever you wish.
