No joke, this is valuable parenting advice. Just remember to teach them what their obligations are for the exchange:
Since it doesn’t really matter, it shouldn’t escalate to a point where the consequences _would_ matter.
There’s no reason to get angry, no reason to get physical.
Don’t run from the argument, but don’t make it more than it is.
At least, that’s my take on it. Anyone else have any thoughts?

Woah, woah, woah… it doesn’t really matter?

Well excuse me, sir! *throws down gauntlet* *selects dueling pistols*

Um, exCUSE me, but gauntlets were not used with dueling pistols. At that point they used dueling gloves. This is the most important fact on the planet to be clarified, and I won’t accept your death-or-honour declaration until you follow goddamn protocol and throw down the right handwear.

*realises his error has brought dishonour to his family*

*continues to mix time periods and cultures inappropriately by committing seppuku*

Please say you used a Māripi to perform seppuku to seriously mess with more time periods and cultures.

We’ll never know, but my guess is that the guy used a laser pistol.

You should have written Sudoku so that Me-Me could go “Um, exCUSE me, but that is called Seppuku etc etc etc” to continue this joke line. XD

That arrow would only land in his knee and then he’d be complaining non-stop for dozens of Ingame years.

Also teach them to cite sources. Can’t just be arguing without facts to back it up.

Exactly! When you learn to fight with facts and logic, you have to adapt *those* things (and general rhetoric abilities) in order to get better at it. Channel competitiveness into intellectual honesty.

My wife’s mom used to have a rule: If it reached a ruckus to the point where someone was hurt and/or crying, there would be consequences for all involved. As I was an only child, I was rather immune from that particular concern.

And let them know it’s OK to concede an argument and admit you’re wrong.

Exactly.

Also, it’s NOT A SNOWSPEEDER. The deck officer even said they had trouble adapting them to the cold, so clearly the speeders the Rebels used at Hoth weren’t designed to operate in that environment.

They were MODIFIED T-47 airspeeders. Modified to SPEED on SNOW. IT’S A SNOWSPEEDER.

Seems like it was a modified air speeder, that the rebels colloquially called a “snowspeeder”

The snowspeeder was a type of T-47 airspeeder manufactured by Incom Corporation and modified by the Rebel Alliance. They saw use during the Battle of Hoth against the Galactic Empire, taking down Imperial All Terrain Armored Transports with their tow cables

So do your kids really like Episode II? Or are they just into the Close Wars cartoon?

I’m like “damn, Tim’s looking old as hell.” And then realized I’ve been reading this comic nearly 20 years, so I am too…

I’ve thought he looks a bit like Tony Stark, but that’s probably due to facial hair drawn, I’ve never seen his RL photo. (the movie Tony Stark, I didn’t read the comics, alas, so can’t compare)
