    the people who ask the question.

    Seems a matter of bumper stickers over critical thought.

    LG: You know what? You got spunk. MR: Well, Yes... LG: I hate spunk!

      Are you going to help these people to their PhD or are you going to try to speak to them on their level?

      This is where we live.

      Someone once asked me why do you always insist on taking the hard road? and I replied why do you assume I see two roads?

      I'm sure you have an infinite supply of patience with which to confront the idiocy of the world, and a perfect set of talking points with which to refute it. It must be nice, being so Christ-like. (Not to mention not having a day job to get back to!)

      The rest of us must make do with merely human patience, alas. Which means that we, unlike you, are generally forced to either descend into screaming at someone, or just give up, trot out a couple of cliches, and then stop talking.

      Funny thing, though... I'm willing to bet that your method of argument and ours are roughly equivalent as far as effectiveness is concerned, on people like this.
