Do you think that a subject exists on which we, on Fluther, all agree?

Asked by rebbel (23527 points ) November 4th, 2011

Will/could there ever be a thread on Fluther where 100% of all responses will be of agreeing Jellies?
Religion will not be one of those subjects, I am pretty sure.
Grammar probably another.
But can you think of one that will?
For example The Golden Rule (“do as you would be done by”) might be one…, or not?

Perhaps we could get a wide majority to agree on something, but I’d bet there would be a dissenter or two.

Math.

I’m sure we could come up with mathematical questions that would spark disagreement, but overall, I think we could agree on most topics in math (provided we all knew what we were talking about).

I wonder how many of us will agree on the answers to this question.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I didn’t even know you could argue math.

Hibernate's avatar

I’m pretty sure most agree that we ALL sometimes go over the limits [no matter what the limits are].

dappled_leaves's avatar

Well, if not, then at least we will all agree that we cannot all agree. QED.

Lightlyseared's avatar

I think we all agree that Fluther is pretty good.

bobbinhood's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf New things are still being discovered and explored, which always provides ground for controversy. Even among old topics, there are different schools of thought. One classic debate is whether it is acceptable to argue from contradiction, or whether everything must be proved constructively. Another grey area is the use of the Axiom of Choice. Some accept the axiom, and others reject it. Either choice has surprising consequences.

whitetigress's avatar

No there’s always that someone who’s above the question. Or just above the general response.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@bobbinhood I’ll take your word for it.

SavoirFaire's avatar

Like @dappled_leaves said, maybe we can all agree on this subject?

Someone’s going to come in and say “yes” just to ruin this now.

wilma's avatar

@SavoirFaire I’d agree with you and @dappled_leaves on that.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

A thread touting how we would all be screwed if we didn’t have gravity everyone would agree on.

Joker94's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central We don’t have to conform to your archaic concept of “gravity”. Float on. Also, none of this was serious.

wundayatta's avatar

LOLOLOLOLOL

Good one, @rebbel!

whitetigress's avatar

Well yes I thought about it some more. There could be a question like, “Do you like food?” I think 100% would have to agree. I mean would someone dare, be like, “Food? Heh, I’m so over food if I didn’t have to eat for energy and over all health reasons I’d quit it in a heartbeat, plus I’m so over using my taste sense!” Highly unlikely :D

wilma's avatar

@whitetigress I actually do know someone who has said that to me.

bobbinhood's avatar

@whitetigress There are plenty of people with eating disorders that are legitimately repulsed by food.

whitetigress's avatar

@bobbinhood On Fluther though? :D

SuperMouse's avatar

The first thing that came to my mind was clubbing baby seals. I really think that if not 100%, at least 98.6% of the Collective would come out against it.

mangeons's avatar

@SuperMouse Pft, who doesn’t love clubbing baby seals? It’s my favorite weekend pastime!

jrpowell's avatar

I love baby seal pizza.

SavoirFaire's avatar

Okay, maybe we’d all agree that we can get pretty silly sometimes?

mangeons's avatar

@SavoirFaire What are you talking about? I am always 100% serious. Always.

SuperMouse's avatar

@johnpowell would that be with or without anchovies?

Coloma's avatar

I think most everyone would agree that my friend and I look pretty cute hangin’ in the vineyards in my avatar. lololol

Eh…drink enough wine and everyone will love everyone, pow wow in the vines at my place! ;-)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I’m pretty sure that 100% of us would agree that molesting children is wrong. Unless there are some truly sick individuals in our midst.

I’m not talking about punishments for said crime, just that the act itself is WRONG.

Everyone agree?

flutherother's avatar

Just when we all agree on something a new jelly will come along and spoil it.

SpatzieLover's avatar

Damn Newbs ;)

Cruiser's avatar

Sex and chocolate cake!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@Joker94 We don’t have to conform to your archaic concept of “gravity”. Float on. Also, none of this was serious. I did not know
gravity was a concept. I thought that was the official name given to whatever force holds everything to this planet, even if you don’t believe or understand it. Is wind a concept to, maybe heat, and cold?

jonsblond's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate My husband hates cake. I know, nuts, isn’t it!?

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@jonsblond LOL, Cruiser made the cake comment this time, not I. :D

jonsblond's avatar

how did I make that mistake? oops =)

everephebe's avatar

Air is good to breathe? Potable water is preferred?

dappled_leaves's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central Gravity is a theory. You know, like that other one…

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@dappled_leaves Gravity is a theory. You know, like that other one… I think it more of an actuality or fact. When I tripped on the curb, or fell off a ladder, it was not a theory that slammed me to the ground. It certainly was no theory that caused the soup can I dropped to smash my on the toes causing me pain for many minutes after that. It was a force connected to this planet. You can call it gravity, you can call it “Earth Stick’um”, but if your toes are under something heavy that is dropped, the pain will be the same.

dappled_leaves's avatar

Not going to belabour the point after this quip, but you observed several (rather painful) effects, and are attributing them to a single cause: gravity. The definition of gravity, the notion that it caused the pain that you experienced, and the explanation of how… all of that is a theory.

Kardamom's avatar

I think we can all agree that Auggie has all of our best interests in mind. Even if she has to use her whip every now and then. : )

everephebe's avatar

Here, here.^ So say we all.

YARNLADY's avatar

Um, we all like Fluther?

Pandora's avatar

Yes, that we need nutrition, air and water to survive.
Sex toys never say no. (Well unless the batteries die)
Pets are the greatest when they are someone elses full responsibility.
When you cough and sneeze at the same time, or hit your funny bone that it hurts.
Pollution is bad.
Loud or silent but deadly farts happen when you lease want them too.

mangeons's avatar

@Kardamom Yes, we all love Auggie! :-)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I think we could all agree Kardamom can cook her balls off. Then again maybe not.

tom_g's avatar

Nickleback is shit. Wait….umm…let me think about this….

HungryGuy's avatar

Kittens are warm and soft?

Coloma's avatar

Hey, I know, let’s start a rumble between the cat and dog camps.

Bah Dogs, sloppy, smelly and loud!
Cats rule! Ducking, running, covering head…

HungryGuy's avatar

Cats rule and dogs drool!

I guess the answer to the OP is “no”...

zensky's avatar

I think we all agree that you are terrific, @rebbel

AshLeigh's avatar

We all at least pretend we think opinions of any form should be welcomed…

Bellatrix's avatar

I actually laughed when I read your question @Rebbel. I don’t think so. There will always be some point of difference but that’s okay. If we all agreed, fluther wouldn’t be so much fun and @Zensky is right, you are terrific!

Blackberry's avatar

Yeah! These conservatives are destroying America! :P

Symbeline's avatar

I denno, probably pancakes and squirrels and shit.

gailcalled's avatar

Milo here: Me.

dannyc's avatar

KIm Kardashian is an idiot..somebody disagree? Not that that would ever be a question )I hope).

zensky's avatar

@dannyc Kim is a babe – and single again – yay! Guys – you know you are interested. Agree?

dannyc's avatar

@zensky. I agree I can’t disagree on that point..agreed?

zensky's avatar

Agreed. There goes the thread. Agreed?

augustlan's avatar

I love you guys. Just sayin’. <3

FutureMemory's avatar

@zensky I’m interested in her ass, yeah.

zensky's avatar

In Auggie’s ass? You betcha.

I think we all agree that Lisa is the lurveliest jelly.

TheIntern55's avatar

We can all agree to disagree.

janbb's avatar

I go with @YARNLADY‘s answer: We all like Fluther, and with @zensky‘s: we all like @rebbel. Everything else is off the table!

gailcalled's avatar

MIlo here; ^^ I beg your pardon?

HungryGuy's avatar

@zensky – Ooooh! You’re breaking Fluther’s unwritten rule left and right in this thread! Auggie’s gonna give you such a spanking! :-p

SavoirFaire's avatar

@HungryGuy Except that it’s already been pointed out to you half a dozen times that you are allowed to talk to and about other people on the thread.

KateTheGreat's avatar

I’m pretty sure we all agree that after a hostile thread, it’s fun to post recipes and change the subject to food, rather than bashing each other.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@KateTheGreat No! That’s [bleeping] incorrect! How dare you [bleeping] say something like that? It’s so far-fetched that I think you should [bleeping bleep bleep bleep] and [bleepity bleep], okay? How do ya like them [bleeping] apples, huh?

@KateTheGreat You’re absolutely right. Chocolate?

HungryGuy's avatar

@SavoirFaire – Well, yeah, if you’re on the mod’s side of the double standard…

CWOTUS's avatar

Well, who doesn’t love boobs, anyway?

KateTheGreat's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate An even better topic change is when we speak of desserts. Or eating chocolate off of each other!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

You still haven’t come over to pet my legs… I’m pretty miffed.

SavoirFaire's avatar

@HungryGuy Ah yes, the distinctive cry of the spoilsport.

janbb's avatar

@Milo If everything else is off the table, it’s on the floor, right? This is a good thing for the cats!

zensky's avatar

@HungryGuy Yes, we’re looking forward to it. The Royal we that is – I’m alluding to the third person thread.

HungryGuy's avatar

@zensky – Right. We crossed upon thread not too long ago as well :-p

wundayatta's avatar

Why is there so much sewing going on around here?

Can we agree on that? Which is the best thread, anyway? Chocolate? Dessert? Sex?

ucme's avatar

There are 7 days in a week, unless you’re a Beatles fan.

gailcalled's avatar

@janbb: MIlo here; You are forgetting, I guess, that I taught Baryshnikov how to leap. Here.

(And I also taught the photographer, Max Waldman, how to take that picture.)

janbb's avatar

My sincere apologies Your Royal Feliness!

gailcalled's avatar

Rats. Wrong picture. (Blame Gail. She’s the secretary.)

Here’s

the correct link for the leap.

Kardamom's avatar

@gailcalled That does look like a kitty move! I wonder if Barishnikov does that other move where he’s walking along, all calm-like and then he suddenly stops and turns around and licks his backside?

gailcalled's avatar

Anything’s possible, if you make sure to call it art.

rebbel's avatar

I agree with all of you!—that Fluther is fabulous, clubbing seals is a no no (and a yes yes to some), food (especially chocolate) is yummy (for most of us), and that we agree to disagree (sometimes)!
@zensky, @Bellatrix, @janbb, and eight @thers: thank you for your kind compliment!

Blondesjon's avatar

I think we can all agree that Fluther is a term used to describe a group of jellyfish.

married, gay christian abortionists on the other hand . . .

zensky's avatar

Would not be much fun at a party – or would they?

Paradox25's avatar

Not really but the site does seem to attract a certain type of userbase. There is definitely a majority viewpoint on several diiferent topics though. I usually find that I’m the dissenter on many topics that most jellies agree with each other on though :o) It was like that for me on Sodahead too and even then there was no universal agreement on all topics.

bookish1's avatar

No one said pancakes???

Aaaaahhhhhh! <lights cigarette>

Lol those are cool.
