DISCUSSION, n. A method of confirming others in their errors.
2008 Update: Reason as it emerges between two participants, such as a mule's hoof and a stump.
I'm first. End of discussion.
Discussion: the blah, blah, blah that my companion rattles on about while I'm waiting for my turn to talk again.
DISCUSSION, n. The headache that results from clashing viewpoints.
DISCISSION, n The time period during which one person attempts to force another to accept his or her point of view.
Discussion is when I tell you and you agree.
Trike or treet is thair candy here=
The word "discussion" can be used interchangeably with the word "fight."
For example: Little Johnny asks his mommy if she and daddy are fighting. She replies, "No. Daddy and Mommy are just having a discussion."
An exchange of view where you get to keep mine.
It's not often I get to tell my mom to "stop talking" but her discussion was rambling and our waitress really didn't care. Said original discussion did send the cute restaurant manager (wow, he was hot!) scuttling away though he did return to take my broccoli away. True love or what? I mean he's good looking, employed at one of my favourite eateries and is involved with food. What a catch.
Wait...what was I originally discussing? I forgot.
Discussion: When I tell the other person how it really is. Seems that those others are just alway mistaken.
Is wishing rabbit rabbit open for discussion? Well, rabbit rabbit then!
Discussions are best when they don't turn into arguments.
discussion = Rant and Rave...Between a Rock and a Hard Place..........................Better red then Dead,,,some "discussions" never end...............
First is first, TLP.
Why should there be differing viewpoints, Amoeba? Ow!
Revi, that's why the wise man agrees early.
Absolutely, Ariel. That's what I meant, actually.
Boy, there's plenty. Help yourself.
Actonbell, you will not!
JD, that reminds me of a lot of my first dirty jokes, too. I think I was raised sub-optimally.
There's the right definition, Cooper. Good job.
Jenn, any man with a plate of broccoli in his hands must be in love.
Jim, They are just that way.
G, AP3, and TLP, R R!
Terry, I like 'em silent, too.
Growl, bear, growl.
