Nice little article on 6 Ugly truths you need to accept to pull yourself out of a rut. Point 3 seems to fit this group to a T.

"Be they disempowered toddlers or exhausted parents or fed-up coworkers or confused, random, mentally unstable strangers on the street, our fellow humans sometimes make up insanely stupid points -- then fight fiercely in defense of them. Only Louis C.K. can make this funny. But he does have a point. People -- and not just kids -- will insist Fig Newtons are actually called Pig Newtons. They will claim Mississippi has seven s’s in it. They will swear the sun covers the moon during a lunar eclipse. Your job is not to argue or present the truth to them. You will not get anywhere and you will turn into the crazy person trying to argue your case. Your job is to go to the bathroom and laugh. Or write down your insanely correct points on a piece of a paper towel -- and then flush them down the toilet."

That's beside the point. Not on top of it but beside it...

Great observation, and seems really applicable. I think I'll keep this in my back brain to keep me from posting too quickly, and unnecessarily.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Been doing that myself for a bit now. Much easier than getting one's self in a snit. This way I get to agree with whom I wish and silently tell those on the fringes with whom I disagree to, well, you get the idea. Smile
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Not to write them down as received wisdom, demand the papers be treated as holy relics of "the unflushed word" , not demand status as a religion, and not rest until those who were not so gifted respect and follow your words... ?
...to all the coins I've dropped here
