I can't help it but I just love that movie. Some of the quotes with the Gerald Butler delivery: "give them nothing... But take from them everything"

Hmm, that's how we should approach SkS and how we deal with deniers :-)

2011-11-14 02:04:15Guilty? Very.

King Leonidas:"Give them nothing, but take from them everything!"

King Leonidas:"Let me guess, you must be Xerxes."
Xerxes:"Come Leonidas, let us reason together. It would be a regrettable waste. It would be nothing short of madness for you, brave king, and your valiant troops to perish. All because of a simple misunderstanding. There is much our cultures could share."
King Leonidas:"Haven't you noticed? We've been sharing our culture with you all morning."

Xerxes:"Consider the fate of your women."
King Leonidas:"Clearly, you don't know our women. I might as well have marched them up here, judging by what I've seen."

 

I love the way Leonidas takes what Xerxes gives him and uses it as a focal point of his pointed replies.  In a way, I try to model this in responses to fake-skeptics at SkS, but in a more appropriate way.

Xerxes: "Our aerosols will blot out the sun."

King Leonidas: "Then we will study climate science in the shade."

BTW, got an email from Camburn complaining about not being able to login. Will email a reply letting him know his account was banned due to multiple violations of the comments policy.

Spaherica, LOL re aerosols.

In a sense, the Persian hordes are a lot like the hordes from WUWT or Climate Depot when Anthony Watts or Mark Morano sicks them on an adversary.

I don't think any SkSers have abs like the Greeks though :-)

"I don't think any SkSers have abs like the Greeks though :-)"

Twenty+ years ago, when I was more interested in skirts and sports than my profession...

...now I more resemble the Spartan deformed at birth...

We have science-abs, though!  Brain-abs!  My gray-matter is like a washboard.  Feel it!  *removes skull cap, sticks out his gyri to let you feel how hard they are*

I'd rather boast about my ability to do mental push-ups!
