A technique for arguing consisting of three sub-techniques. 1. Turn the focus away from yourself, preferably onto the arguer.
2. Change subjects.
3. Use a number of clever and usually pointless anecdotes to force the arguer to just give up.
All the meanwhile, never addressing the actual reason for arguing in the first place.
Dude, i tried to talk to him yesterday about failing his test, and he totally pulled a bowman! First he told me i should be more worried about my own test next week, then he asked me how my mother was dealing with her breast cancer, and then he spent 40 minutes quoting movies and we ended up arguing about star wars until i just gave up.
