No liking or sharing unless you get it within 5 seconds.  10 seconds if you were born before 1970. No comment thread spoilers please.

I asked Conner what his favorite food was. He immediately begins to list just about everything we've given him "cheese and cookies and roast beef and oatmeal and bananas and..."(this continues for some time) and I said "so everything?" and he said "yeah, everything is my favorite food"

awesome.

No matter how intelligent you are, the world will always appear to be full of idiots.

For those of average or better intelligence, this is an entirely legitimate observation, the legitimacy of it increasing as intelligence increases.

For those of below average intelligence, ones ability to perceive and value the intelligence of others is reduced, and anecdotal aspects tend to be more heavily weighted- the 'street smarts' and 'experience' fallacies are touted here.  Issue is, 'street smarts' and 'experience' are knowledge, not intellect.  Anybody can gain knowledge, including 'street smarts' and 'experience' given sufficient time, though intellect improves this.  Tendencies to overweight 'experience' / 'street smarts' over intellect (as well as failure to realize that this is comparing apples to orange) tend to increase as intelligence decreases.

For those of ANY intellect level, there is a common human failing where our own opinions are treated as fact as far as we are concerned.  As such, those who simply have a differing opinion are classified as idiots.  One would think that as intelligence increases, this failing would decrease.  One would be wrong.  This tendency appears to be completely independent of intelligence.

Whether you are intelligent or an idiot, whether you are experienced or green, and regardless of your religious, political, or other standings...  the world will always appear to be full of idiots.

This is probably the only thing that everyone will agree on.

How does a socially-awkward 30 year old go about making new friends?

Isolation...

Now what?

Apparently my screenname of "xxbl0winl0adz69xx" was a contributing factor in the complete failure of my online dating experiment.

BLARGH.

That is all.
