    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.

    Yes, it is. That said, you wanna open up competing lemonade stands or competing vinegar stands?

    They aren't anymore.

    Closing the gap and reaching agreement is passe.
    Well, not every one is willing, true. However, using you as an example, SOME are willing and interesting in engaging, learning, sharing, teaching, seeking common ground and working on a more perfect union. SO, if we can get a few more to be like Wishbone, that's good, yes?

    I'm not interested in debate...

    Only in causing mayhem, confusion and irritation.

    How about competing idea stands? People aren't going to like changing their mind. That's not vinegar - it's just hard for people to do.

    Yes, all true, we resist non conforming information. That said, if it comes with fries it's a little easier to at least have the conversation rather than with a side of warm yogurt.

    Fair enough, you've changed my mind
