  •  Even sheep fart (1+ / 0-)

    Let's remember that the degree of our passion should never obscure our aim. Were you always convinced of the truth of things on the first exposure, or did it ever take two or three go-rounds?

    My point is only that when we don't give our correspondents a choice except capitulation and fighting, most of the time, they'll fight. Without the false smiles of honied "politeness," it's still possible to offer the person an option to save face while maintaining the truth of the position.

    At least it seems that way to me, but I certainly know what you're talking about. I felt the same impatience when I was a punk, so I may have just moved into old fart country.

    People complain about dirt, but I'd like to see them make some.

      I do get impatient and disappointed when people are thinking superficially and losing ground out in the real world.  
      Yes, sheep do fart.  I fart also freely and often.
