    And my scoring method was this. I took all of my arguments that were accurate, added to them all of the arguments of yours I debunked, adding to them each piece of substantiation I gave, subtracted all of the substantiation you gave, and subtracted all of the arguments that you made that were accurate. I did the same for you, except I did not allow negative numbers.
    I never heard the term "wife beater" to describe a white shirt, so I'll have to assume that you made it up, along with your scoring method and judgment calls that all benefit you for some strange reason. Can you work out the math for me though?, as maybe that will help to convince me that you aren't lying about that part.

    Now, I am not going to spend 10 more pages arguing this with you. Your 1% has been debunked using simple statistics. You have 4 choices:

    1) Concede the point.
    2) Move on without conceding the point.
    3) Admit that you do not understand the statistics of the situation. I will be happy to explain it to you in detail. No embarrassment or attacks. I tutored in statistics and it is not the easiest to understand.
    4) Continue to argue a false debunked point...which would constitute trolling. I will then need to put on my mod hat and do something about it.

    Your choice.
    You mean those are the only choices?

    You seriously never heard of a wifebeater? They are the sleeveless undershirts like in The Godfather.

    As far as a wife-beater, here you go from the Urban dictionary:
    wife beater:
    form fitting white ribbed tank top worn by men; looks good on well-built fellas, pathetic on skinny fellas, and disgusting on fat beer bellied fellas
    As far as the math goes, you've already shown that you do not understand simple statistics, so there's nothing that would make me believe that you would understand this.

    A white sleevless tee-shirt is known as a "wife beater" in slang.

    So why would CC call me a wife beater? Because I don't agree with him on this issue?

    According to the physics of light, the reflected light is the "color" of an object.

    Take a ripe red tomato as your example. The Lycopene inside of the tomato absorbs pretty much every wavelength of light except for red, which it reflects. This give the tomato a red appearance.

    But looking further, the tomato is actually not red. It reflects red but red is never an intrinsic characteristic of the tomato. It is actually an intrinsic characteristic of the light that never actually becomes part of the tomato.

    The intrinsic characteristic of the tomato is that it will absorb all other light but red light. So in essence, everything but red becomes a part of the tomato. What is "red" is actually just the light that the tomato reflects. Since we see only the reflected light, we call the tomato "red".

    Now apply this to a mirror.

    Anything that is in a direct line of sight from a mirror will absorb certain wavelengths along the spectrum and reflect certain other wavelength of light onto that mirror. The mirror then reflects that light back perfectly while absorbing no light at all.

    Since there is no absorption, then there can be no color.

    The "color" Silver is simply a "shiny" gray. But a mirror is not gray because it reflects all colors of the spectrum, whereas gray is equal absorption and reflection of all colors of the spectrum. It is between white (total even reflection of all wavelengths) and black (total even absorption of all wavelengths). Gray occurs when X% of all light wavelengths are absorbed evenly and Y% of all light wavelengths are reflected evenly.

    A mirror does not have these qualities.

    If anything, a mirror might qualify as a pure "white" as it is total reflection of all wavelengths of light.

    In essence, this means that a mirror has no color of its own, at least from a physic point of view, but instead it's color would most correctly be classified as "variable".



    Now, some people might want to know what all of this has to do with gay couples adopting.

    From what I can tell, absolutely nothing. Unless gay mirror are not being allowed to adopt.

    Sorry, but I wear tees, and never alone. When it's hot I wear a golf shirt or a light button-down. And I've never thought of beating my lovely bride.

    The stats are simple though. The Census has information that gives us the percent gay households to all households that participated in the Long Survey. That works out to 1%, which we can assume means that the percentage of gay singles is 1% of all singles, and therefore the percent gays is 1% of society as a whole.

    He didn't call you a wifebeater. He told you to take your wifebeater off.
