I most certainly cannot feel the sunshine.

I don't have a GameCube controller so I can't play super Mario sunshine. Plus I am convinced that Mario is mental and am disgusted at his atrocities that my own psychology disguised as "fun" and "happy" and innocent. Therefore I won't play as a mental person even if one of their games has "sunshine" in the name. therefore I cannot feel the sunshine.

Pro

Pro states that "[he] cannot feel the sunshine."

"Sunshine (noun.) 1. the shining of the sun; direct light of the sun." [1]

If Pro were to walk outside during a day with no cloud cover or travel somewhere with a dry, hot climate, it is certain that he would then be able to "feel the sunshine."

Con

Yes I did do that but I was in the car or a store for most of the trip and never felt any change in body temperature. Therefore I cannot feel the sunshine.

Pro

If you could not feel the sunshine, then you were not truly within reach of direct sunlight. Were Pro to have gone truly outside(i.e., not inside a car or store), then he would surely have felt the sunshine, proving that he is capable of feeling the sunshine.

Con

Actually I really was outside just not for much of the trip. I meant "can I feel the sunshine right now?" Not "am I capable of feeling the sunshine?"

Pro

Then I believe Pro should have clarified from the start. The statement "I most certainly cannot feel the sunshine." gives the impression that under no circumstances are you able to feel the aforementioned sunshine.

Regardless, unless you've never been under direct sun at all your entire life, you most certainly can feel it in the vitamin D you've previously absorbed from sunshine and, if it counts, the melanin your body produces because of it. By extension, you are feeling the sunshine--as well as its lasting effects.

That argument doesn't prove that I can feel the sunshine. It just proves it's lasting effects on me. It turns out vitamin D is in some fruits and drinks, too, so your argument still leaves it possible for the vitamin D to come from there.
