A football game.... ah not such a strong one.

I'd take the opposite side of at least the first two (assuming "GS" = Golden State Warriors and "market" = the Dow), and possibly the third, depending on what the ellipses represent.
See edit.  :)
I just found a new supply of forks!

  • On Dec 31, 2018 @aygart and a new member with remarkably similar positions to @ChaimMoskowitz will be arguing about politics on Every. Single. Thread.
  • Trump will not be impeached.
  • Gary Sanchez hits more home runs than Judge, Stanton and Bird (individually).
  • @churn-baby-churn ceases making snide remarks about Chabad. It makes him feel strangely good. He starts a chavrusah with @Freddie and next Chanukah the menorah on his car gets smashed in a parking garage. He disavows Chabad.
  • @ExGingi still won't have tried Izzy's.
  • @henche is still henche, but after henching a hench, zhe achieves peak henche with the henchiest henchover henchstory.
  • @Dan packs it all up and starts a restaurant review instagram channel. He gains enough weight to finally end the Benny confusion. He sells the rights to Dans Deals to @jj1000 for a pair of Ecco shoes, a Mike's dinner and 5 Indians tickets. (Dan ultimately refuses the latter because he finds better tickets than JJ did for half the price.)

Why do you keep using that expression? Is that like the new "no true Scotsman"?

What else would I use when someone comes up with such lame "predictions".

I don't know of an earlier version of "no true Scotsman" which is a simple type of logical fallacy. The expression I used could be interpreted as a rephrasing of Shlomo Hamelech's: אין חדש תחת השמש, and is more readily accessible without switching input language.

You missed my point. I was not referring to the actual logical fallacy known as no true Scotsman. I was referring to the fact that a certain forum member uses that expression every single chance he gets, and that's what it seems like you're doing with this new French phrase that you have decided to like.

It all depends on what it is responding to. WHen people use the no true scotsman fallacy often then that can get replied to them often when people make these lame predictions they will get this.

No true forum member would do a thing like that.
