You mean you really DIDN'T get Kramer's statement?

Huh! I thought you were just arguing to argue.

Congratulations: Your devolution to Elroy is, now, complete with this pithy rejoinder.

Do you realize you affirmed Kramer's statement with that one word?

I caught that as well... :D

Thing is, he could be done with this with a simple "yeah, what was I thinking? :oops: " ... but his ego won't let him drop it. He has now moved on to trying to redirect the conversation away from his faux pas.

Making an observation is not having a complex. It does not bother me nor trouble me, I simply find it kind of odd that people pull for Apple like it was some sort of sports team. Trumpeting that it makes more money like a Dodger fan might trumpet about beating the Yankees.

I don't get that excited if Toyota outperforms Nissan, or if Mrs. Butterworth outperforms Aunt Jemima.

Kind of the opposite of his point. I don't care which company is doing better.

Yet here you are arguing with those you perceive to be "apple."

You simply keep digging yourself in deeper because you are incapable of letting it go.

A more clear statement you could not have made.

You are right: I'm not an "apple-y" though I do own an apple.
