Big words? Uhhh, ok then, if those are big words to you, my statement must remain intact.

Look, with every post you make you dig yourself further and further into a rut of your own bullshit. The post wasn't made for beginners who are quick learners or have the ability to use gray matter. Let me reiterate that it was made for idiots, for newbies who have no clue how to do anything for themselves.

I have provided an insurmountable amount of links to stupid people asking equally as stupid questions. However, there is always a continuous flow of new people who are, once again, too stupid to use what's between their ears and think for themselves. Why should I link anyway? There is no rule saying I have to, it's just a relay of information. Using your logic, a piece of information should only be published once. Not only is that logic fundamentally flawed, it's the most counterproductive statement I've heard in a long time.

Why don't you just give it a rest and admit that your unwarranted attack on my thread was stupid, pointless and wrong.

ok guys this is enough,
the post did state the obvious but it also joined up like 3 topics together in a brief statement listing most fuels except mapp etc,if this was posted at the end of a "how-to" it would be better im just saying you could read three different topics and find in-depth info on different fuels or read this one topic for a basic idea,if it was more in-depth with links and more on propane etc, it would be a better post but for now it briefly sums up the basic fuels. and thats fine so no more bitching guys.

You are obviously way out in left field, completely missing my point.

Yes, I realize that it was created for the benefit of idiots, but idiots do not benefit from vague explanations and general statements, they require in depth explanations and visual aids (most idiots learn whatever they can visually, from what I have seen they cannot interpret text). Your entire post could have been summarized in one or two links to websites containing these elements, and idiots would have benefited far more greatly, as they now have to go perform research on the hints you gave them. As "idiots" I somehow doubt that they will find what they need.

As I briefly suggested in the above paragraph, you contradict yourself at every turn. Stating vague information and then later stating that you expect idiots to interpret it is not a good way to logically argue.

Your wrong. Accept it, I have had to, then I learned not to post until I was completely sure of what I am stating.

Okay, now you made me irritated.

You are both correct and you are both stupid.

Escape, aerosol fuel is the type of fuel that everybody knows about. It's where beginners begin. It's what everyone who doesn't build spud guns assumes is used. Thank you for trying to "clear it up" but it was already clear.

People have problems with propane because they do not know what is involved with it. Telling them that aerosol works is like saying "since you want a real nice car and don't know where to get it, go get yourself a Geo Metro. No crap, that person's already been driving the Metro and they want a Viper now. Same deal with this. When someone wants to try propane, they almost always have used an aerosol and don't need to be told that aerosols work.

Blaster, sometimes it's best to just let it go and know for yourself who's right and who's wrong. Some people just aren't worth arguing with.

Escape, thanks for trying, but it was a needless effort.

What Gort said is on the money.

Let it also be known that I am irritated. In fact, right now, you have blown my (currently) very short temper.

If a person is using propane, they have probably used aerosols, and at the very least know about it.

No-one goes out and thinks:
"Hmm, I've never built or even researched a spudgun before. I want to build one. What shall I use for fuel? Oh, I'll build a system to exactly inject the right amount of propane to use as fuel"

It won't happen. You don't invent the combustion engine before the wheel.

Neither would any other culture/race/planet.

Both of you have fair points, but you are making them so stupidly.

Escape, it's a very nice concept for a thread.
Spudblaster, yes, it could possibly use a more detail.

Stop the cat fighting. You are both behaving like immature little girlies. (and I can say that as a female.)

The conversation has degenerated to an incredible low. It's reached the point of "I know you are, but what am I?" and "Takes one to know one" type statements.

If you continue with them, I will hunt you down and kick you from "0 to backwards in yesterday".

Got it?

Don't push me.

Hahahahah! Jo, I love you.

I know this has nothing to do with this thead but I'm compelled to tell you that of all the people on these forums, I am drawn to read what you have to say the most. I really get excited when I see that you have posted and that's because you're a really funny person and extremely smart. Oh, and the penguin is awesome.

You people should learn from Joanna here. I think she's just about the best example of an ideal forum member I can give to you.

Sorry for the unexpected flattery (should I be?) but I just felt it needed to be said. And no, this doesn't have anything to do with your 18th birthday. :P

Gort, thanks for the compliment.
While we're at them, I have to say I am always incredibly impressed by your cannons, valves and other work.

It would be nice if my younger brother favoured my wit as well, but he just thinks me ultra strange. (I suppose I am really.)

Now, if I only understood these 18th birthday comments...

*flattered* Thanks Joanna.

To explain the 18th thing... In another thread I sarcastically asked what you were doing next weekend (after your birthday) as in "You wanna go out?" then in my last post in here, I had complimented you. In here I just said it had nothing to do with me trying to get on your good side or something to take you out.

Sorry if I confused the crap out of you. :P

Rna, I don't exactly have a set rank for you or anything, but I actually do check a thread if I see you neame by it.

Right - now it makes sense.

Gort, you have no need to do anything to get on my good side... at least not right now.

Taking me out... I presume that's not in hitman terms. *Ducks, just in case*
That would really get you on my bad side...

Gah! I'm making suggestive comments over the internet - you've corrupted my pure nature!

*shakes it off*

On a more on-topic note, I don't see any argument posts... Ah crap, now I've cursed it.
