BULLET TAKES MORE SKILL THAN OTB CHESS

Internet ratings are meaningless  , only otb ratings have any real indication of one's ability in chess.

yes you're completely right, and I have a respectable otb rating. But as you said earlier that weak players move very fast and are good at that doesn't mean they aren't as strong otb. Some are equally as good at bullet as they are otb, so your statement is marginally flawed. THat's just my opinion though, and I respect yours for what it is.

no ones given me a good reason to why OTB is more skilful than bullet yet

In OTB you need patience, even the most absent minded should be able to focus for a bullet game.

Wow, snip3z, I think you get the Dr. Trollinsky award :P

However, I find that in bullet chess, there is a tendency to be less careful. I don't play bullet much anymore, but when I did, I could win with the most random moves.... OTB chess and even live standard chess require epic levels of concentration, which I and quite of a few people don't have every day.... But, I think you're gonna troll my comment like all the rest, so, go ahead! :P

I have the answer to the question - 42!

Just joking.

In what dystopian fantasy of yours is bullet harder?

OTB(2-hours per player) is the hardest, because there are almost no mistakes.

It's all about @Snippy's 1289 Standard Rating.  And he's PISSED about it!

Oh WHY, Oh WHY, did it take everyone so long to figure that out?  Laughing

I tend not to "get" things which are not firmly based in sound logic but rather have their roots in an arbitrary set of precepts and maxims conjured up by some power drunk psychopathic mind. 

I always saw irony as pretty logical...

irony is logically not logical

Interesting point is that paradox thing can be ironic for logical reasons. Foot in mouth
