Every once in a while, you come across a comment on here from somebody who just gets it. There is a huge difference between holding strong principles (something people ought to do a lot more of) and putting causes ahead of the human element (something people tend to do far too much of, especially in this day and age). You understand the difference, and you've put it in a way that makes it easy for people to grasp. We need more people like you in this world.

You're a real psychoanalyst.

The guy had some insight but the rest was egotistical horseshit. I'm sorry that I've offended your personal idol.

You're one of many deluded kids who thinks that quoting Sun Tzu, or reading The Art of War makes him a 'real man.' The guy was out of touch with reality, most narcissists are.

It doesn't take an expert to see you're copping out.

Well, tactics and strategies that are able to be remodeled and applied in this day and age, over a thousand years after his life and time, is not just 'some insight'. Nor is any of it egotistical horseshit, he never even mentioned himself in the book. Have you ever even read it?

You did not offend anyone, nor is he my personal idol, I can just recognize genius when it appears, and that is where you fail because of your own personal feelings.

Mudslinging is also a cop out.

I read the Art of War for the same reason I read The Prince, or The Kingdom of God Is Within You, or Above Life's Turmoil, or The Alchemist, or White Fang, because I enjoy reading, because I enjoy learning and exploring and expanding my mind, because my ego always takes a step down toward my curiosity. Something you obviously have trouble with.

Perhaps, instead of letting your anti-war propaganda dictate how you feel toward things, you should read it yourself and look at who he was and THEN decide your opinion without bias. Just because you do not agree with something doesn't mean you cannot learn from it, nor does it mean that it is without fruits.
User avatar #52 - jukuku (03/24/2014) [-]
I don't see how you came to the conclusion that I'm under the influence of "anti-war propaganda" either.

I am against waging war because it is a waste of the resources expended in the endeavor. We cannot continue to live at the expense of other people if we wish to accomplish anything more than ensuring our failure as a species. War isn't worth the time, money, or lives expended. I'm not saying that a country shouldn't protect itself if it is attacked but the mistake is made by the aggressor.
User avatar #54 - captainfuckitall (03/24/2014) [-]
Because you claimed that the greatest strategist to ever live was a brute who only cared about killing. Again, it doesn't take an expert.

It also gains resources through people captured and lands taken.

One of the bad facts about life is that no matter how rich and powerful everyone may become, someone still has to scrub the toilets. For every person on top, there must be one at the bottom. For every victory there must be a loser. And this is okay, and to say that it's not is to make everything equal, and if everything was truly equal it would just collapse on itself.

Sure it is, considering what you're fighting for, or over.
User avatar #56 - jukuku (03/24/2014) [-]
I didn't say he only cared about killing.

The guy "liked winning" even if that meant the deaths of thousands. The price of his enjoyment was blood.

I don't expect a world of perfect equality, what I expect us to strive for is a system in which we are progressing, not slipping backwards because of bogus causes like nationalism and conquest. Assessing the impacts of our actions, rather than assuming we posses the capability to bend and shape the world as we wish it to be. No matter how much you want it to be as simple as killing or staying your hand, it will never be so simple and so it must be dealt with an a manner which attends to the complexity of the situation.
User avatar #59 - captainfuckitall (03/24/2014) [-]
"he was one of many people who would leap at the opportunity to spill blood"

He didn't go to war because he enjoyed fighting. He ENJOYED winning, but he saw war as a necessity for his time, which it was. You speak as if he intentionally led millions to their deaths for shits and giggles alone.

Nationalism and conquest are important. Even your own views, that humanity should unite to something greater, INVOLVE Nationalism (love for the human race) and conquest (pushing everyone toward a certain ideal). Your methods simply differ, but in that way you count as a 'warmonger' too.

Indeed, but that's the job of a politician. A strategists job is to win, that's it. That's also one of the greatest reasons why Sun Tzu said that a king should leave command to his forces to another general, rather than himself.

I'm not copping out, I get on FJ and see some stupid comment about something every single day. I get replies like this by the dozen. I'm sick of having continued discussions with people over this shit.

"anti-war propaganda"

Yep, like I said, having discussions (read as retarded arguments) with people on FJ isn't something I particularly enjoy. I read plenty, I read just about anything I can. I haven't gotten around to the art of war yet but I have certainly read things which I disagree with, to see their perspective and try to learn from it. What I don't get is how someone can honestly think that every single thing he has said is a pillar of wisdom, or how some of his black and white statements are ALWAYS correct no matter the context. I think he was likely a sociopath or delusional, I don't see why that prompted the response I got. Please, tell me why his generalizing statements are so wise? "If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight." Is hardly applicable to every decision to be made about war. It's like an autistic child spewing random shit he read. It's completely out of context and is out of touch with the realities those decisions are made in.
User avatar #53 - captainfuckitall (03/24/2014) [-]
And yet never once have you considered the fact that you are the one mistaken. Quite an ego you have there.

Implying there is no such thing as "Anti-War propaganda" is as stupid as saying blacks cannot be racist.

I never said Sun Tzu was a pillar of wisdom, but he WAS a master of war, and thus it only makes sense to take ANYTHING he says about it very seriously. And did you honestly disagree with the quote I posted? Do you honestly see a situation where that might be incorrect? You admit you have not read the book (good for you, by the way. At least you do not lie in order to seem correct), but if that is the case then how can you make judgements about it? You do not have to experience something in order to have an opinion, but if you cannot even comprehend its contents than any opinion you hold is sure to be very wrong.

He very well might have been a Sociopath or Delusional, but that doesn't mean he was mistaken. Just as well, what prompted the responses was claiming he was a brute, he was incorrect in his judgements, he was a sociopath, he was not talented, and that he only cared for battle. Most, if not all of which are incorrect claims.

Sure it is. If you have the opportunity to win, you must take it. Seems pretty black and white to me.
User avatar #55 - jukuku (03/24/2014) [-]
I never said that there is no such thing as anti-war propaganda, I thought it was dumb to assume it is anti-war propaganda that lead to my conclusions.

My initial statement was about how his quotes are flung about as if they're correct in every context and as if there is no better solution, even in warfare. This isn't the age of Kind and Queens, this is the age of nuclear weapons and super carriers. I was annoyed by his every word being spewed as if it is applicable to all modern conflict, or all of modern life's tribulations.

I'm not some egotistical idiot who thinks I am correct about everything, I question just about everything, even myself. I don't think that because I had a thought, that it is automatically correct.

If you have an opportunity to win a battle, is that really a win in the long run for whatever is deemed of value. First we must assess what is of value? Is the goal something very short-sighted like simply removing a perceived threat? Or is it a goal that plays across a larger scale, perhaps there would be diplomatic fallout, the economic cost of such an action, even the loss of life costing the GWP billions.

Nothing is black and white, that's why I said it is naive because there is ALWAYS a secondary effect. Nothing happens perfectly, there is no perfect solution and that needs to be taken into account. "Go to war or don't go to war." Is hardly the way an intelligent person deals with the issues of conflict. There are many options beyond war and apathy.
User avatar #57 - captainfuckitall (03/24/2014) [-]
Your conclusions had nothing to do with it. It was the way you put them.

That's just it, though. Most of his words and strategies, given a bit of reworking, ARE applicable in this day and age. That's WHY he's so famous and celebrated. It is nearly required reading for every soldier in the Western Hemisphere.

There are very few times that a loss contributes to the war effort. And even then, if you were never meant to win in the first-place, the "If you can achieve victory, you should" wouldn't matter, because the victory itself would BE losing.

I disagree, I think many things are black and white and that you just have to examine them to find out. (He wrote about that too, actually). Indeed, but sometimes war is absolutely necessary, and only an idiot would say that it's absolutely never. There is a very good reason why many great philosophers and idealists who lived in oppressed societies hated pacifists.

No. I posted this because some edgy kid is going to say how great and wise he was, he was one of many people who would leap at the opportunity to spill blood. People like him are a burden to society, I suppose Bush, in all his wisdom, is not deserving of being 'degraded at every corner.'

I suppose it's not polite to call war mongering idiots terrible people.

Get over yourself, retard.
User avatar #43 - captainfuckitall (03/22/2014) [-]
You're quite over-dramatic, aren't you.

That's because he WAS great and wise. He devoted himself to war and victory and literally mastered every principle and scenario for his time. There's a reason he's called the greatest strategist to ever live. He did not leap at the opportunity to spill blood, as a matter of fact he was apparently quite docile, but he went to war when it was required because he knew it WAS required. You do realize the society he existed in was over 1500 years ago? When people waged wars left, right, and center because it was might that made right? And it was through his interventions that kept the dynasty's of China thriving during his life-time?

Oh, look at that, now you're bringing up a president who started a war. Ya, you're TOTALLY not a liberal college kid, I'd say you were closer to highschool.

But he wasn't warmongering. As a matter of fact, he didn't love war, he loved victory. Nor was he an idiot considering he's been remembered all these years and you aren't famous for jack shit. Was he a terrible person? Maybe. I heard he was a dick, but than again, this was in a time when being a dick was the only way to properly thrive.

Get over yourself, hippie.

Just as well, what prompted the responses was claiming he was a brute, he was incorrect in his judgements, he was a sociopath, he was not talented, and that he only cared for battle. Most, if not all of which are incorrect claims.

Sure it is. If you have the opportunity to win, you must take it. Seems pretty black and white to me.

I never said that there is no such thing as anti-war propaganda, I thought it was dumb to assume it is anti-war propaganda that lead to my conclusions.

My initial statement was about how his quotes are flung about as if they're correct in every context and as if there is no better solution, even in warfare. This isn't the age of Kind and Queens, this is the age of nuclear weapons and super carriers. I was annoyed by his every word being spewed as if it is applicable to all modern conflict, or all of modern life's tribulations.

I'm not some egotistical idiot who thinks I am correct about everything, I question just about everything, even myself. I don't think that because I had a thought, that it is automatically correct.

If you have an opportunity to win a battle, is that really a win in the long run for whatever is deemed of value. First we must assess what is of value? Is the goal something very short-sighted like simply removing a perceived threat? Or is it a goal that plays across a larger scale, perhaps there would be diplomatic fallout, the economic cost of such an action, even the loss of life costing the GWP billions.

Nothing is black and white, that's why I said it is naive because there is ALWAYS a secondary effect. Nothing happens perfectly, there is no perfect solution and that needs to be taken into account. "Go to war or don't go to war." Is hardly the way an intelligent person deals with the issues of conflict. There are many options beyond war and apathy.

Your conclusions had nothing to do with it. It was the way you put them.

That's just it, though. Most of his words and strategies, given a bit of reworking, ARE applicable in this day and age. That's WHY he's so famous and celebrated. It is nearly required reading for every soldier in the Western Hemisphere.

There are very few times that a loss contributes to the war effort. And even then, if you were never meant to win in the first-place, the "If you can achieve victory, you should" wouldn't matter, because the victory itself would BE losing.

I disagree, I think many things are black and white and that you just have to examine them to find out. (He wrote about that too, actually). Indeed, but sometimes war is absolutely necessary, and only an idiot would say that it's absolutely never. There is a very good reason why many great philosophers and idealists who lived in oppressed societies hated pacifists.

I sincerely hope you don't think Sun Tzu is some beacon of wisdom. He waged war like a million other brutes. The ways of life have changed and even in his age, waging wars was a good way to caste your empire into the grave. He was a run of the mill sociopath. There is nothing special about him.

No. I posted this because some edgy kid is going to say how great and wise he was, he was one of many people who would leap at the opportunity to spill blood. People like him are a burden to society, I suppose Bush, in all his wisdom, is not deserving of being 'degraded at every corner.'

I suppose it's not polite to call war mongering idiots terrible people.

Get over yourself, retard.
User avatar #43 - captainfuckitall (03/22/2014) [-]
You're quite over-dramatic, aren't you.

That's because he WAS great and wise. He devoted himself to war and victory and literally mastered every principle and scenario for his time. There's a reason he's called the greatest strategist to ever live. He did not leap at the opportunity to spill blood, as a matter of fact he was apparently quite docile, but he went to war when it was required because he knew it WAS required. You do realize the society he existed in was over 1500 years ago? When people waged wars left, right, and center because it was might that made right? And it was through his interventions that kept the dynasty's of China thriving during his life-time?

Oh, look at that, now you're bringing up a president who started a war. Ya, you're TOTALLY not a liberal college kid, I'd say you were closer to highschool.

But he wasn't warmongering. As a matter of fact, he didn't love war, he loved victory. Nor was he an idiot considering he's been remembered all these years and you aren't famous for jack shit. Was he a terrible person? Maybe. I heard he was a dick, but than again, this was in a time when being a dick was the only way to properly thrive.

User avatar #50 - captainfuckitall (03/24/2014) [-]
It doesn't take an expert to see you're copping out.

Well, tactics and strategies that are able to be remodeled and applied in this day and age, over a thousand years after his life and time, is not just 'some insight'. Nor is any of it egotistical horseshit, he never even mentioned himself in the book. Have you ever even read it?

You did not offend anyone, nor is he my personal idol, I can just recognize genius when it appears, and that is where you fail because of your own personal feelings.

Mudslinging is also a cop out.

I read the Art of War for the same reason I read The Prince, or The Kingdom of God Is Within You, or Above Life's Turmoil, or The Alchemist, or White Fang, because I enjoy reading, because I enjoy learning and exploring and expanding my mind, because my ego always takes a step down toward my curiosity. Something you obviously have trouble with.

Perhaps, instead of letting your anti-war propaganda dictate how you feel toward things, you should read it yourself and look at who he was and THEN decide your opinion without bias. Just because you do not agree with something doesn't mean you cannot learn from it, nor does it mean that it is without fruits.
User avatar #52 - jukuku (03/24/2014) [-]
I don't see how you came to the conclusion that I'm under the influence of "anti-war propaganda" either.

I am against waging war because it is a waste of the resources expended in the endeavor. We cannot continue to live at the expense of other people if we wish to accomplish anything more than ensuring our failure as a species. War isn't worth the time, money, or lives expended. I'm not saying that a country shouldn't protect itself if it is attacked but the mistake is made by the aggressor.
User avatar #54 - captainfuckitall (03/24/2014) [-]
Because you claimed that the greatest strategist to ever live was a brute who only cared about killing. Again, it doesn't take an expert.

It also gains resources through people captured and lands taken.

One of the bad facts about life is that no matter how rich and powerful everyone may become, someone still has to scrub the toilets. For every person on top, there must be one at the bottom. For every victory there must be a loser. And this is okay, and to say that it's not is to make everything equal, and if everything was truly equal it would just collapse on itself.

Sure it is, considering what you're fighting for, or over.
User avatar #56 - jukuku (03/24/2014) [-]
I didn't say he only cared about killing.

The guy "liked winning" even if that meant the deaths of thousands. The price of his enjoyment was blood.

I don't expect a world of perfect equality, what I expect us to strive for is a system in which we are progressing, not slipping backwards because of bogus causes like nationalism and conquest. Assessing the impacts of our actions, rather than assuming we posses the capability to bend and shape the world as we wish it to be. No matter how much you want it to be as simple as killing or staying your hand, it will never be so simple and so it must be dealt with an a manner which attends to the complexity of the situation.
User avatar #59 - captainfuckitall (03/24/2014) [-]
"he was one of many people who would leap at the opportunity to spill blood"

He didn't go to war because he enjoyed fighting. He ENJOYED winning, but he saw war as a necessity for his time, which it was. You speak as if he intentionally led millions to their deaths for shits and giggles alone.

Nationalism and conquest are important. Even your own views, that humanity should unite to something greater, INVOLVE Nationalism (love for the human race) and conquest (pushing everyone toward a certain ideal). Your methods simply differ, but in that way you count as a 'warmonger' too.

Indeed, but that's the job of a politician. A strategists job is to win, that's it. That's also one of the greatest reasons why Sun Tzu said that a king should leave command to his forces to another general, rather than himself.

I'm not copping out, I get on FJ and see some stupid comment about something every single day. I get replies like this by the dozen. I'm sick of having continued discussions with people over this shit.

"anti-war propaganda"

Yep, like I said, having discussions (read as retarded arguments) with people on FJ isn't something I particularly enjoy. I read plenty, I read just about anything I can. I haven't gotten around to the art of war yet but I have certainly read things which I disagree with, to see their perspective and try to learn from it. What I don't get is how someone can honestly think that every single thing he has said is a pillar of wisdom, or how some of his black and white statements are ALWAYS correct no matter the context. I think he was likely a sociopath or delusional, I don't see why that prompted the response I got. Please, tell me why his generalizing statements are so wise? "If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight." Is hardly applicable to every decision to be made about war. It's like an autistic child spewing random shit he read. It's completely out of context and is out of touch with the realities those decisions are made in.
User avatar #53 - captainfuckitall (03/24/2014) [-]
And yet never once have you considered the fact that you are the one mistaken. Quite an ego you have there.

Implying there is no such thing as "Anti-War propaganda" is as stupid as saying blacks cannot be racist.

I never said Sun Tzu was a pillar of wisdom, but he WAS a master of war, and thus it only makes sense to take ANYTHING he says about it very seriously. And did you honestly disagree with the quote I posted? Do you honestly see a situation where that might be incorrect? You admit you have not read the book (good for you, by the way. At least you do not lie in order to seem correct), but if that is the case then how can you make judgements about it? You do not have to experience something in order to have an opinion, but if you cannot even comprehend its contents than any opinion you hold is sure to be very wrong.

He very well might have been a Sociopath or Delusional, but that doesn't mean he was mistaken.

Man, I think I love you
Man, I think I love you

Haha, where the hell did that come from?
User avatar #507 to #506 - thediablo (01/26/2015) [-]
I saw that kind of argument that you had and I liked not only what you said but the way you said it, I think you did it pretty cool and everything

if you meant the gif it's from Soul Eater
User avatar #508 to #507 - captainfuckitall (01/26/2015) [-]
That's the first time I heard that. Generally, my abrasive and blunt speech drives most people to dislike me, not give me affection. You're a sweetheart, though.

Haha, no, I did not mean the gif.
User avatar #509 to #508 - thediablo (01/26/2015) [-]
I feel the same way about myself, I have to say that if those speeches were used against me I would feel a little bit upset, but you ask for clear answers and sources, and you try to make the other person think before they speak, I like that in general, not just mindless bashing ahaha

Well I'm certainly glad you can see the good in my speaking skills. Frankly, I do it to get to the point. I hate having my time wasted for any reason, and so I extend that courtesy to others and try not to waste anyone else's time either; which leads me to being very blunt and brutal in my words so that they cannot be confused or misheard. Though I admit I was frustrated in that debate.
User avatar #511 to #510 - thediablo (01/26/2015) [-]
most of them are frustrating anyway

and yeah, it sucks when people start to get offtrack because of a single comment that you used as an example or something, it's proof that they are desperately trying to derail the conversation to their favor
User avatar #512 to #511 - captainfuckitall (01/26/2015) [-]
Oh well. When you get into a debate with someone, the point should be because you are trying to change your own views, not theirs.

If someone doesn't want to believe something, they won't. End of story. You could use all the proof you want to tell someone the colour of the sky is blue, but if they want it to be green, it will be and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

Thus, the only person you should be focused on changing in a debate is yourself, and only do so to get more perspective on the issues important to you.

User avatar #499 to #495 - aurumleo (01/08/2015) [-]
Who's the artist? Sauce?
User avatar #500 to #499 - miia ONLINE (01/08/2015) [-]
i dont remember and its too late for me to find out
reverse search it
#501 to #500 - aurumleo (01/08/2015) [-]
I found it! The artist's nukomasu. Thanks, Miia. If it weren't for that image, I won't find it.
User avatar #496 to #495 - captainfuckitall (12/13/2014) [-]
Well don't let me keep you. Hi back, and feel free to continue the conversation any time.
User avatar #503 to #502 - captainfuckitall (01/09/2015) [-]
Hello again.
#504 to #503 - miia ONLINE (01/09/2015) [-]
hello

i am exhausted
User avatar #490 - commencingfailure (09/30/2014) [-]
******* retard compares the IS to today's feminists. One could say ignorance is an everspreading cancer, you did your job to increase the spread.
User avatar #491 to #490 - captainfuckitall (09/30/2014) [-]
You seem REALLY mad, friend. Perhaps you should calm down and take some ass ointment before you need to see a doctor
User avatar #489 - myfourthaccount (07/18/2014) [-]
dude, you're like my most favorite person on earth right now haha
User avatar #487 - imvlad (05/04/2014) [-]
you brought shame to your house
User avatar #483 - aerosol (04/22/2014) [-]
Have you by chance had an older account here before?
User avatar #484 to #483 - captainfuckitall (04/22/2014) [-]
Yes I have. My first username was Hiimquinn, but it was deleted for some reason I never found, so I just made another.
#485 to #484 - aerosol (04/22/2014) [-]
Oh. Never mind then. I saw someone call you Dave and I mistook you for someone else.
User avatar #486 to #485 - captainfuckitall (04/22/2014) [-]
It's fine. It was a joke from a picture a while back where a man was looking out the window and saw a dog and his owner walking down the street. The dog barked at another, bigger dog, and his owner just turned and said "See, this is why you have no ******* mates, Dave".
User avatar #481 - iforgotmyothername (03/20/2014) [-]
you are one cool tempered potato compared to me, bringing my fury upon your wrongness. i salute you, and thumbed up all your comments in the a capella debate.
User avatar #482 to #481 - captainfuckitall (03/20/2014) [-]
It's alright, I apologize for making you upset, but you don't need to thumb my posts up. Thumbs are a way to express positivity or negativity toward any type of comments; if you do not like them, it is perfectly within your right to thumb them down.
User avatar #474 - aherorising ONLINE (11/20/2013) [-]
you're a really cool bro
#471 - shiifter (10/06/2013) [-]
This still makes me giggle.

Oh and by the way, i never actually thumbed you down. I just said that i did.
User avatar #472 to #471 - captainfuckitall (10/06/2013) [-]
The thing is, the way I found OUT you gave me those thumbs was because of the question mark, which allows people to see who voted on content. I could only KNOW it was you if you had thumbed them down, which you did.

And now you not only prove to be an idiot, but a liar as well.
#473 to #472 - shiifter (10/12/2013) [-]
Wait? You still remembered that? That's hilarious.

By the way, i screencapped this. it's like a trophy.
User avatar #468 - satrenkotheone (09/22/2013) [-]
I would just like to say thank you.
#466 - anonymous (08/25/2013) [-]
Due to your pointlessly rude comment on the post "Jesus ain't got time for **** ",

I have gone through 20 of your previous comments and thumbed them all down.

You're also a stupid, unfunny, tryhard feelfag. Exactly the kind of user that this site is infamous for.
User avatar #467 to #466 - captainfuckitall (08/25/2013) [-]
I wasn't pointlessly rude. If you read it more carefully, you would find I am not insulting your god or faith, but rather, the people who spread it about; and even they are just doing it to themselves, while I am mearly making an observation

It's ironic you call me tryhard, considering you just went through the time to thumb-down my last 20 comments as if it would have any effect on me personally or my ranking here. It's also odd you call me stupid, considering you were the one who read it uncorrectly. And I think the fact I have so many comment thumbs anyways (including my own jesus comment) speaks to the point that I am, in fact, quite hilarious. "Feelfag", is that supposed to be a derogatory term for someone who is passionate about certain things? If so, then I take pride in it, as it is only through passion that things grow.

Considering you are pretentious, arrogant, immature, and without a sense of humour; you fit the criteria for '12 year old funnyjunker' far better than I do.

Hey, I would just like to say thank you for telling me to get an account.   
Yea I know, odd thing to give thanks for when I could have gotten one easily but then again, I was a dumb bastard then and could not think very well.   
I notice your comments from time to time and get some good knowledge off of them, mainly the Lovecraft related ones.   
But like I said, thank you very much and continue to be awesome.

You are just a wonderful person, you know that? Thank you very much for your kind words and appreciation, and I'm glad you have made an account and made many friends here, including myself
#465 to #464 - captainspankmonkey (07/16/2013) [-]
You're welcome, good sir.

youre pretty ****** in the head if beating a kid is a good idea, parents would need to hit their kids if they taught them what was right and wrong from the beginning
User avatar #462 to #461 - captainfuckitall (06/01/2013) [-]
It's ironic how you talk about avoiding situations, when your very comment isn't needed considering I already explained, about five times now, that I do not mean you must 'abuse' your children in order to get good results. My comment, and all the comments afterwards, were about how when compassion and support fails you must turn to punishment and discipline, including simply smacking your kid upside the head

Perhaps you should read more and get better informed before jumping to opinions, yes?

I'd just like to say thank you for created one of the funniest  threads i've seen this year.   
To sum up why i thought it was so funny, a quote...   
&quot;Most people would say 'I lost. I give up.', but you, you just keep trying. You're like the Dominican Republic, always killing the guy in charge and saying 'Ah, this new guy, this new guy's gonna get it right!'.&quot; - Family Guy

I'm not sure whether I should take that as a compliment or an insult

I choose the former

Thank you, good sir
