Ok, I'm 15,
...
Wow! 15? Really? You're 15 years old!?

yes



ok, that doesn't change anything
In my world it does.

The reason I don't believe you is because I have a son one year younger than you. If there's one thing I've learned is that expression comes with age. Your vocabulary, your grammar, your ideas are not those of a 14 or 15-year-old boy.

~That's all.
I could be wrong, but, I doubt it.

Ha, I have a 15 year old son, and he's nowhere close to expressing himself like Manga! However, I have known some deep thinkers that could easily have carried on conversations like this at 15. What convinces me a bit more of Manga's age is the fact that he's stuck on something and it feels like he just wants to argue sometimes, despite the fact that he's been given good, reasonable, well-thought-out responses many times. That's why I thought he was probably young before I even knew his age. Because that's totally a 15 year old thing.

Mags you could be wrong, what if Manga is a 15-year-old girl?  Anyway it wouldn't be the first time you were wrong. Remember the trouble you had opening a juice container?

I agree with you.

Yes, I remember that time.  >:( Butt, what about all the times I have been right?  :smug:

Let's bring some science into this (since it is posted on the Science board, after all) with a fine comic strip from The Oatmeal:

I liked that too! It's a fun, interesting way to present ideas.

I once had a friend who, if I challenged her "old wives tale" beliefs, would call me "stupid". When she disagreed with mine she could rarely answer my, "Why do you say that...?"

She hated to be proved wrong. As in "microwaves heat from the inside out". Zapping a very frozen ice-cream slab proved that.

She would probably not have even understood the logic of that, Recusant.
