    Default Re: Why is it called "The Boneyard"?

    I think Roscoe has been living on Boothill, in a Boneyard, under a rock, without knowing it, for quite a while.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Thank you Ken. I did not know that, but then I do not have the slightest interest in Yank history. I have much more interest in NZ history which, so far as I am concerned, has much more relevance to me. I do not care for the Yanks and am more interested in British history which is where my grandparents and ancestors come from - much more pertinent.

    Sadly, methinks you have lived most of your life with your head firmly placed up your a$$

    That just shows your lack of intelligence when you have to sink to that low an insult. It's plain to see that you don't have the mental capacity to come up with something original.

    You are obviously a Yank lover, otherwise why would you use the word "a$$"? I'm a Kiwi and I would use the Kiwi word; arse.


    Why don't you migrate to Yankee Land, then? You seem to prefer their language to Kiwi speak. We don't need people like you in NZ.

    Very intelligent, but then what we've seen from your previous comments, that's about all we can expect from you.
