No Jared you did not prove your point. You merely repeat over and over that "everyone knows this to be true" without giving any sort of sources that can be verified. That's not an argument, or at least it's not one that's likely to be respected.
If you want to claim victory, then back up what you say with facts that others can verify. Or admit that you cannot and move on.
