Sweet! When do we all start using this?


#3

Brilliant!

Now we need emoticons here in the BBS for each of those signals.

Also:

“That thinker does not argue what you think.”

seems to be a restatement of:

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

Wait, wait, there’s no signal for Use of Comic Sans. Or is that just a red card?


#5

I read the first one “The thinker does not argue what you think” as referring to a specific philosopher. So, for example, if you said, “according to Descartes argument ‘I think therefore I am,’ which means I am simply the sum of my thoughts,” you would draw the “That thinker does not argue what you think” foul, since Descartes was attempting to get to a more rich philosophy and this statement was just a step along the way to that.

/me gives the handsignal for: Premise Accepted.

:smile:


#7

I think I’d prefer them as animated gifs.


#8

Yes, but how do you signal an offside?


#9

Ask Marx…


#10

Signal for punt would be tabling the discussion?


#11

When somebody changes the damn font.


#12

Stop being an asshole:


#13

Any other reasons why not?

…And before you start, aside from ditching Comic Sans for Times, I also fixed up the layout a bit, removed the jpeg artefacts and made it a greyscale png.


#14

I love how most of the signals are a highly specific way of saying pretty much that.
