A Code of Conduct for Effective Rational Discussion — Limbicnutrition Weblog The Fallibility Principle When alternative positions on any disputed issue are under review, each participant in the discussion should acknowledge that possibly none of the positions presented is deserving of acceptance and that, at best, only one of them is true or the most defensible position. Therefore, it is possible that thorough examination of the issue will reveal that one’s own initial position is a false or indefensible one. The Truth-Seeking Principle Each participant should be committed to the task of earnestly searching for the truth or at least the most defensible position on the issue at stake. The Clarity Principle The formulations of all positions, defences, and attacks should be free of any kind of linguistic confusion and clearly separated from other positions and issues. The Burden of Proof Principle The burden of proof for any position usually rests on the participant who sets forth the position. The Principle of Charity The Relevance Principle The Acceptability Principle

Plot: Two meth cooks and their accomplice set up their gear in an abandoned house in the middle of nowhere and starts cooking.

While you may not be able to help it if you are having a bad day or if you don’t like doing a particular task, changing your attitude changes everything. No one – no matter how much talent you have. Being a pleasant person helps every day. Work hard.
