And what was it that you changed their mind about?
The patentability of my client's invention.
when you lie in bed at night?
Him: "Game of Thrones is great"
Me: "Yeah but it's awful though"
Him: "Yeah, you're right, it's shite."
Was quite pleased with myself.
Not even going to click on the link.
this week he mentioned economic migrants and I decided it wasn't worth losing my hair over
Didn't even know he voted tory in the first place.
he just stopped telling you about it
apropos of nothing
Friend of mine dislocated 3 (Three) fingers at the same time. Convinced him to not try and pop them back in himself and carry on training, and instead go see a doctor.
Also done the same for a guy who popped his knee and wanted to carry on fighting.
Once I was in the jungle fighting this space monster and this guy's face was cut. he was trying to say he didn't have time to bleed but I convinced him to put some iodine on it and once I'd cleaned the wound he let me put a few sutures in, he was good as new.
You're a good guy inside-outside
Imagine the conspiracy theories we'd have missed out on if you didnt do that
the best one is where oliver stone's son takes too many drugs and convinces himself he saw some guy's eyes slit back and forth like a lizard.
love that program
Or I persuaded them my viewpoint had a solid factual and moral base at least. I think that's the best you can hope for really.
Most people about most things need to come to their own conclusion, or make their own mistakes.
I end up arguing a lot on the internet about politics but at the end of the day, people don't want to change their mind. They want to prove they're right and win (me included).
I sometimes wonder if it's worth it at all. I get so wound up and what's the actual point? It's difficult to be the Teflon swam that glides through unloaded by people who you think are wrong. But it's good to try. Yeah.
Might I suggest, the reason you never change anyone's mind is because you are ASTONISHINGLY bad at making your case.
Never happened, just confuse people
