Pictures and videoes and what not will be a bit more effective, but he'll just side step it. He knows he's lost the debate with me, and he knows he's lost it with you--that's all that really matters. When people read it, the person who actually makes sense will be clear x3. Worth a try though.
Sorry for not posting in the guild yet, by the way. Busy as of late.
Well, I like the guy. I have a pretty big ego too (and it's big enough to think my knowing about it changes anything), but the difference between shooting a rifle at a person (though thank god never killing anyone), and reading about it are minimal. I didn't rely on my experience as evidence, I used citations in standard APA format. There's no excuse for him not to be able to be just as informed as I am, minus ability knowledge, perhaps.
