Actual philosophy can be tedious sometimes. But if you can't get the basics down, you're never going to get anywhere.

Define which one so we can argue over the use of there, their and they're.

Why are you implying that I've lost an argument? Also, you need to define argument before I discuss it with you.

I agree with that logic. Too bad most people on this board don't.
