Yes sir, I do (it's been a while, but I did read Phaedo). I pulled the quote because often times people do not listen to factual or at least convincing arguments because they refuse to admit they are wrong or give any concessions. At that point, they usually reiterate their point time and again and try to get more people on their side to support their idea.

I'm not saying numbers always tell the whole story (we all know statistics can be manipulated), but take caliber debates (i.e. 9mm v. 40SW)........ People usually try to convince others of their position by getting the most comments supporting their side.

A Remington 514 single shot .22 on Christmas Day, 1955...I was 8 years old.
Later in the day, my dad took me to my uncle's farm near Troy MO. to hunt Cottontails...Got two that afternoon.
More than anytime...That event is etched in my memory, and I still have that rifle.

we used to go into the woods with our bb guns and either we taped .22's to the barrel and then shoot them or we would put the .22 between a Y branch

not the smartest thing.. actually i used my "imagination" alot while i was younger.. surprised im still alive..

hopefully, but i doubt, i can try to stay one step ahead of my kids when they get older :)
