I don't get what this line of discussion is supposed to heading towards. Let me elaborate on my thoughtsSo, do I keep giving examples where "might" and "almost certainly" are clearly different in their meaning, and where one would be foolish to treat them as being the same, until you're willing to recognize it?
Or do I take your statement and re-frame it as you finally agreeing with me, as "about the same" is not literally "the same", so you are reacting differently to the situations? ¬_¬
If "might" was a 20% of happening and "almost certainly" was 99% of happening. To me they're functionally the same because neither are 100% guaranteed to happen.
So in in the case of getting a raise to me they are the same because i still don't actually have a raise yet
And in the case of wally they're the same to me because Wally hasn't been proven as broken yet.
