see but it's like this
You're a football team, and you play a game against a really tough team, and you guys fight for all 4 quarters, and in the end, you come out on top. Then at the end of the game, the refs blow the whistle and it ends in a 0-0 draw. That's kinda what it's like. >>3270750
But like, here's the thing; in that brief moment after you lose an argument, your feelings don't matter. It's about giving the person who bested you their due. Then after that, it's whatever. Otherwise you're being a massive cock to them by basically saying "hey, nice argument and all, but you basically wasted your time". And see there's a difference between an argument where each party kinda agreed to disagree, or where an impasse is reached, that's one thing. But like, when someone proves you wrong on all points, and you kinda just don't even acknowledge it, fuck that's like mondo inconsiderate. The worst though, the absolute worst, is changing the subject. When someone proves you wrong, changing the subject is the single biggest middle finger you can give to someone you're talking to. It's like you're putting your insecurities above absolutely anything else, and it's rude as fuck. Don't get me wrong, I know WHY people do this, I'm not dumb, but it's still some of the biggest bullshit ever.
