A conversation I expect to occur sooner or later
Random Forum Person: Don't you just agree with everyone on here?
Me: That is quite a delicate and interesting question to pose me. For, because I have not hitherto disagreed (seriously at least) with anything on this forum, I could say either yes or no with impunity. If I say yes, then I would be creating the truth I avowed to believe. If I say no, I would be disagreeing with you, and thus changing the state of my disagreement-count, and thus making my statement true again. Therefore, I have the choice to make myself either agree with everything or disagree with something. I prefer agreeing, but then I consider that in the future I might need to disagree with something on this forum. And since I do not simply accept and agree with things willynilly, it would behoove me to disagree with you and say no.

Split-Personalities Splitting words
Practical Jay: Why, again, are we signing up for yet another social network?
Outgoing Jay: So we can meet more people!
Business Jay: So we can advertise our web design and development business in more venues.
Techie Jay: Because I can't believe we haven't signed up for Tumblr yet! We should have done this years ago!
Practical Jay: We weren't even using the internet years ago.
Techie Jay: Precisely. At least not in the sense you mean, we really were, because no one can escape the influence of the internet, and so everyone is actually using it in some way, whether indirectly or directly.
Practical Jay: That is beside the point. Do we have time for another one of these things?
Outgoing Jay: Time? Time?! We always have time to meet more people!
Business Jay: He might be right, though, we need to spend more time working or we won't be able to meet our goals.
Practical Jay: Exactly!
Spiritual Jay: What are our goals?
Outgoing Jay: Meet more people!
Business Jay: Save money for a house.
Practical Jay: Stay sane and get stuff done.
Spiritual Jay: Why do we do those things?
Others: ... To glorify God of course! Right? * hopes they are right *
Spiritual Jay: To glorify God is our prime motive, but how does connecting to more people, reaching further into the web, and promoting our ministries and services more glorify God?
Outgoing Jay: To help people with what God has done for us! To comfort and exhort others in the same way, and with the same blessings that have comforted and exhorted us: with the wisdom of God.
Business Jay: In the short term, to make an impact in the market, demonstrating how Christians should interact with the world in a Christ-like manner. In the long term, providing our family with stability, security, and the blessings that God wants to give them.
Practical Jay: But does talking more help us do more?
Spiritual Jay: Good question. It depends on what we talk about, doesn't it? If we talk about things in a way that drives us and others to do more, then it would help us all quite a bit, wouldn't it?
Practical Jay: That sounds right, but is it right?
Outgoing Jay: Of course it is!
Business Jay: As long as we do it in moderation.
Techie Jay: And Tumblr integrates really easily in with everything else, making it more efficient to use, so it doesn't add that much time.
Practical Jay: You say that every time.
Techie Jay: And I am right every time.
Outgoing Jay: See? We're right!
Spiritual Jay: I think it is a good idea. What do you all think?
Outgoing Jay: Of course! * bounces up and down *
Business Jay: Sounds like a plan to me. And we might be able to make our own theme, right, Techie?
Techie Jay: Yep! Great for our portfolio. * nudges * I was in this from the beginning.
Practical Jay: * sighs * Yah alright. I'm in. Let's make a blog and change the world.
Me: That is generally how it goes almost every time, fyi. :)
