Seems like the more time I spend on the interweb tubes talking to idiots, the more I grow tired of talking to anybody.
I'm simply amazed at the logical fallacies and mental gymnastics employed but I'm damn tired of going back to the basics time and time again. My usual haunt is HuffPo over at Helmke's and Henigan's rants but lately, there's more anti BS and outright lies by authors I've never heard of before. Perhaps they've been there all along and I'm just noticing them now.
I've had a lot more success talking to people at work about my hobby and my passion. Once they get to know me, I'm already in a position of being respected for being damn good at what I do for a paycheck. That gives me an "in."
On the web, I cater to the fence-sitters who read but never comment. I need to remember that.
We all need to remember that.
