For putting an end to all the poppycock and malarkey about how you are not a great friend and benefactor of Israel. They love you in the Jewish state.

It was my great pleasure to pay my income taxes today. I know you will only use it with the greatest of care, in a wise and thrifty manner, as you always have. If you need more money just ask and I will be ready with the check book.

I remain your humble and obedient servant of the state,

MrCheeryO.

Metal, don't forget we're conducting an extinction experiment on the PA morons.

Extinction Burst
http://razzycorner.blogspot.com/2011/04/extinction-burst.htm...

Today we are going to tackle one of the most important concepts when it comes to behavior modification, extinction bursts.

Here's the wikipedia explanation of an extinction burst: While extinction, when implemented consistently over time, results in the eventual decrease of the undesired behavior, in the near-term the subject might exhibit what is called an extinction burst. An extinction burst will often occur when the extinction procedure has just begun. This consists of a sudden and temporary increase in response frequency, followed by the eventual decline and extinction of the behavior targeted for elimination.

Ok, now what exactly does that mean? Basically it means that when you are trying to decrease the frequency of a behavior, things will actually get worse before they get better. It makes sense when you think about it. Why would a child just willingly give up the small amount of control they have in their lives? (That's pretty much what most problem behaviors are; an attempt to control things). We can't expect them to give up without a fight, but if we stick to our guns and show them that this old way of behaving isn't going to work anymore, they will eventually give up the old behavior.

I look at it as children wanting attention. Negative attention is better than none at all, so our "guests" say stupid stuff in hopes of getting a reaction.

I guess that is possible, but I go with Occam on this one

My assumption is they say stupid stuff due to the fact they are stupid.

My bad. I'm way behind on reading threads and have hundreds that I have not yet read. Must have missed that.

LOL. If you want to throw your money away, knock yourself out.
