Quicksand

A quicksand trap makes you sink deeper and deeper the more you struggle. Perhaps you enjoy being in that trap, because you refuse any help to get out. But look at how befuddled it makes you over and over again, getting stuck on simple questions, and getting so tangled up sometimes that you can't even figure out how to ask the question coherently! That should be a clue that you're doing something wrong. One more time, it's very simple and completely unrebutted:

Is your name in italics on your birth certificate? No. That is the proof from 11.6 that you are not being certified to be a vessel. Unrebutted. And it rebuts the OP.

Is your name in quotes on your birth certificate? No. That is a *second* proof from 11.7 that you are not being certified to be a vessel. Unrebutted. And it rebuts the OP a second time.

What is left? You are being certified to be a rocket. Unrebutted.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I guess if you like to be encumbered by lots of laws you might think it's a bad thing but very, very few laws apply to rockets, and even fewer to a rocket that is not in outer space, as I assume you are not. No registration requirement. No liability.

But if you want to stay stuck in that quicksand trap of trying to figure out what "vessel" means even though the *doubly unrebutted* proof makes it clear that you are not a vessel, then just keep doing what you're doing. But it's easy to escape that trap whenever your'e ready. 10 ... 9 ... 8 ...
