Look.

You came here and asked a question. Sensible people helped you with your question. You whined.

Then you asked, if someone keeps trying they will eventually pass, right. You were told "no" by sensible people.

Apparently, you didn't like that answer, so you asked again. You claimed that educators tell you that you can do anything that you want. I then said that no competent educator every said that. That was a misstatement, I should have said, "no competent educator above the second grade level ever said that."


You then suggested that if one kept trying, eventually success would follow. I then pointed to the Greek mythology to refute that belief.

You then gave me the finger.

Grow up. I'm never going to be a starting pitcher in the majors. (Middle inning reliever, maybe.)

I'm not going to be a world class jockey.

I'm not going to play chess at the GM level.

I won't ever beat AlphaGo.

It's okay to realize that there are some things that you can't do.

Does that mean that you, can't pass FM? Of course not.


Just remember Einstein's insanity quote. Which he probably didn't actually say.

You should pick you fights better. Almost no one here can conceive of a competent educator saying
ďyou can do anything you put your mind toĒ and meaning literally anything. Nor can most of us imagine anyone with even moderate intelligence believing such a statement as meaning literally anything.

When did I whine? I never complained once.
I never gave you the finger either. I’m not sure where you got that from. I was just asking questions that’s all I was doing.

The problem now here is that such actions are unprofessional.

Not even sure why such statements (e.g., "today I learned how to act unprofessionally") are needed in a professional section of the AO.

If anything, you're on the fast track to very close moderator scrutiny.
