quote TerryYou stated a definition you got from the internet saying that they have 2 legs and sometimes 0, so I get google to show me definitions for it as well, and none stated 0 legs, making all your points invalid. You also didn't realize the little trap I implemented into my argument, obviously you where to blind to realize it. If your whole argument revolves on protection of your precious internet capability, why did you insult it, contradicting yourself?quote Ausquote ippiki_ookami(post here even got removed)quote AusCompelling argument. I appreciate your input.hurrhurrquote AusHe may not be trolling in every single post, but he is obviously a troll.^ Nagger.
If you can't tell from those posts, get your troll detection fixed.
Now back to topic.
In my very first post about this topic (which was still in the Juggernaut topic) I already stated that the definition is vague to begin with. Wyverns generally have 2 legs, but can have 0 legs too, hence the origin of the word "vivere" = snake -> no legs.
Also the link you provided doesn't show shit.
I have been taken the info from Wikipedia, which is quoting from Pliny, who happens to be one of the earliest sources I have found. You bring up a link with a worldnetweb definition on top which contradicts itself in just 1 line (it states it is a dragon yet just being half dragon and half snake).
I keep seeing you stating books. Go ahead and link us to some or quote from them. Books can be found online too and if you base your argument on it, then show us a bit more details then just 'books say otherwise'. This is a discussion topic, not an "I say A, so A is universally right"-topic.
It may be true that Wikipedia isn't universally reliable either, but as stated before, if we are talking about historical courses, you can safely assume it is right. I'm not a wiki fanatic like you're trying to put me, but I know when I can assume Wiki is right and reliable and when it is not.
Teachers? Good joke. Teachers are humans too. They get at least 80% of their information from the same sources than you and me and everyone else. They aren't a library computer, you know.
I wonder where you get .... lets say biographical data from people who died ... from. Your private newspaper archive?
Btw, people like you shouldn't exactly call others morons. I dare to say I have better common sense than you (which your way to argue proves - you haven't names a single specific source yet, but you do insult others in your argument) and chances are I might be on my way getting a better education than you too. I for my part am working on getting my Bachelor of Arts at university.
Anyway, moving on to the more interesting and intelligent part of the discussion...kleo's post.
A bird is classified a bird when 'most' factors that birds have, or the most characteristic ones, the single species has too.
Example: Birds have wings, a beak, lay eggs, have a unique bone structure which usually enables them to fly (not going into details on this one) etc.
Penguins as well as chicken fit these criteria, so they are categorized as birds.
Same procedure with fishes, just with different criteria.
Whales and Dolphins if I'm not mistaken are not regarded fish because their birthing procedure is that of mammals.
And now on to cowboi:
While it may be true that it's the same word / letter in japanese, many japanese games go back to Western European or Norse Mythology. A perfect example is the Valkyrie Profile series or even Devil May Cry.
So we can assume that even if it's the same for the japanese in general, it was based on the wyverns from western mythology, so we can base our argument on these as well.
quoteSo google gives me available definitions for it, yet you claim it doesn't show shit when this whole time you've been trying to state that the internet does show shit? that's the epitome of contradiction! My whole argument was not flawed and was full-proof from the start, you cannot poke holes through it as when you do so you're poking holes through your very own argument.Also the link you provided doesn't show shit.
quote WakamanThat's because english isn't my first language and it isn't an official language in my country either (quite obviously in germany).Lulz,so many damn spelling errers(<- on purpose)
I'm surprised I saw some from you too Terry.
