    Um, I'm NOT a dude. You're entitled to your opinion but I'll never be mistaken for a "dude". I'm a grown up...I don't use such brain dead terms.

    I am. The use of the term in conversational English conjures up visions of the user being a "Jeff Spicoli" type. Yeah, it makes a statement about the user's intellectual firepower. Take it... Leave it ... Doesn't matter to me.

    And such close-minded views are also a bold statement of one's "intellectual firepower." It might shock you that there are doctors, lawyers and all manner of well-educated professionals occasionally employ the use of the word "dude" in colloquial speech. To eschew the use of the word "dude" or any other slang word does not make one smarter, wiser, or in any other way superior to those who do.

    YAWN! Your choice to speak as you wish. My choice to judge you FOR the way you speak. I think it's closed minded of you to not allow me to judge people the way I choose.

    Hate to jump in here, but yet I still am . . .

    We all form opinions on our fellow posters based on very limited info. Given your user name "weeds" and your classic cartoon avatar my vision of you was some guy in loose fitting clothes, a bandana, beard and liberal use of the word "dude". Maybe a big dog named Scooby as well.

    Anyway, yet another lesson on judging books based on the cover.

    You`re not exactly helping matters here. We have a fantastic ignore button feature......I REALLY think you`d all like it, even for just a little while. And personal issues are against the forum rules. :) Just saying

    You should have followed your first instinct.

    Do you see Scooby wearing a bandana? ;)

    Well, if you automatically think you're better than anyone who uses the word "dude", that's your miscalculation. You're welcome to it, Brah.

    I'm a 35 year banker, specifically contract law. Fiscal conservative - who would be a RINO by today's crazy benchmarks. Managed a bar for 5 yesrs in college, worked an assembly line and in a foundry for 4 years. Son of a Catholic Deacon, farmer and foundry worker. I don't take much seriously...but despise being called "dude". :) I'm easy.

    I took a few philosophy courses in my time. Enough to mess me up for the rest of my life, so I have to ask...does wearing armor cause one to chafe?

    By the way, I think a moderator setting up this "Dude Talk" thread is both ludicrous and hilarious.

    Well done!
